Gleam allows you to send email subscribers to MailChimp. To enable this feature, you must have either the Pro or Business plan.
Settings for MailChimp are available by editing your site via the dropdown in the Gleam sidebar then going to the "Integrations" tab.
When setting your MailChimp settings you must assign a default list to send subscribers to. You can also set a list per entry method when editing your campaign "How to enter" section.
You can enable MailChimp Integration on the Pro plan & above. Simply navigate to Settings > Integrations then turn on MailChimp.
You will need to input your API Key, then name a default list you want Gleam to send users to. This list must exist in MailChimp first otherwise we won't have anywhere to send emails.
As of recently we also support sending users to Mailchimp Groups. This is not required by default, but if you want to segment users from different campaigns into different groups you can use this option.
In order to send users to a list you must use the Subscribe action type.
Simply enter in the name of the corresponding list in MailChimp you want to send users to.
Gleam supports the ability to enable double opt-in when you send contacts to a list. However we do not validate whether or not the double opt-in has been confirmed, only that the user was originally sent to Mailchimp correctly.
You must validate these users manually when picking a winner (and invalidate as necessary).
Double opt-in is a bit subjective depending on the user:
This would require us to continually check the double opt-in multiple times then also display different messages in the widget depending on the status. Doing this has larger implications as we currently support over 20+ email providers, that all deal with double opt-ins in very different ways.
We currently only support 3 field names for MailChimp:
You must setup a list to use all 3 if you which to get users names into your list.
In order to test if emails successfully send to MailChimp you need to do the following:
