Set up the Golden Monkeys app

After installing, open the app on your smartphone and enter your MailChimp credentials to connect to your MailChimp account. After the app is connected to MailChimp, follow the steps in the next section to designate subscribers as VIPs in your list.

Mark subscribers as VIPs

You can designate up to 500 subscribers as VIPs across all lists in a MailChimp account. You can mark subscribers as VIPs using the Golden Monkeys app or when using MailChimp on your computer. A subscriber's VIP status is specific to each list. If someone is subscribed to two MailChimp lists, their VIP designation in one list does not automatically make them a VIP in the other. Below we walk you through how to designate multiple and individual subscribers as VIPs.

Mark multiple subscribers as VIPs

  • Navigate to the Lists page.
  • Click the title of the list you want to work with.
  • Use the checkboxes to select the subscribers you want to designate as VIPs.
  • Click the Actions drop down and select VIP.
  • Select Add to mark the subscribers you've checked as VIPs.
  • Click the Confirm button in the popup modal to confirm the VIP status.

Once confirmed, we display a VIP icon next to their member rating.

To remove VIP status from subscribers in bulk, follow the steps above and select Remove instead of Add.

Marking individual subscribers as VIPs

  1. Navigate to the Lists page.
  2. Click the list title you want to work with.
  3. Locate the subscriber in the list or use the search feature.
  4. Click the subscriber to open their subscriber profile.
  5. Click the VIP button under the subscriber portrait.

Sending to VIP subscribers

Once your VIPs are set, you can send targeted campaigns to these subscribers using our segmentation feature. Take a look at our segmenting article for more information and step by step instructions on creating and sending a campaign to a segment of your list.

Segment by VIP status

This feature is limited to certain user levels. You can see your user level on the Users & Account Details page and this article explains what each level can access in the account.
