Want a quick way to promote your email list every time someone subscribes to it? This Zap can help. It'll queue up a new post in Buffer for your Twitter, Facebook, or other social accounts whenever you get a new subscriber on your MailChimp list. It's a great way to welcome the new follower, and just might get someone else to sign up.

How this MailChimp-Buffer integration works

  1. A new person subscribes to your MailChimp email newsletter
  2. Zapier queues a post in Buffer
