4. Select Your MailChimp Folder and Audience

Now that FeedOtter and MailChimp are connected its time to select a MailChimp folder.  This is where FeedOtter will put the automated emails it creates. This is only important from an organizational standpoint but it is required that you have at least 1 folder. (we want you to stay organized)

Then select the Audience. This determines who will receive your MailChimp RSS email.

5. Save and Go!

Upon clicking the Save and Publish button. FeedOtter will start your automated email campaign.  You will be returned to the FeedOtter dashboard where your campaign is visible.

Pay special note to the “Next Send” information as this will tell you when your next scheduled send will occur.  If you need to change anything, click the Edit button.
