Email service provider MailChimp today announced the launch of Joomailer, a new integration for the popular Joomla! platform.
Joomla! users are able to manage MailChimp lists, create campaigns and manage reports from their Joomla! dashboard, essentially replicating most of the MailChimp web-based features in a 3rd party site. This is the first extensive integration with a CMS for MailChimp.
The Joomla! community has been both active and vocal (in a good way) of late about the popular content management systems' new version (1.6). Joomla is currently powering almost 2.7% of all websites today. MailChimp's integration with Joomla in reality makes it quite late to the game. Constant Contact, Aweber, GetResponse, GraphicMail all have modules/extensions and a number of other freestanding extensions for all variants of email like autoresponders exist as well.
If you'd like to learn more about Joomla! stay tuned for Joomla in June - a new series launching from Website Magazine next month. Also, consider joining Website Magazine at Joomla Day Chicago in August.
