There are a few ways to collect emails from your campaign:
There are a few ways to export emails from your campaign:
- Emails are automatically synced to your connected email provider
- Manually export your contacts into a CSV file
Collect Emails From Subscribe Action
Go to the How to enter tab on your Competitions campaign setup
Select the Subscribe to a Newsletter action.
Select Add Email Integration and follow the instructions to authenticate your email provider account. If you don't connect to an email provider, you can still manually export your contacts.
Here's what the action would look like to your entrants:
Subscribe to a Newsletter
Collect Emails From User Details Form
This method allows you to ask for the entrant's email before they login to complete your actions.
Since this form is not connected to an integration, you have to manually export emails from the Entries/Actions tab
Go to the User Details tab on your Competition campaign setup
To reduce fraud from entrants, you have the option to require login before actions for your Competition.
Set Allow login with... to include email
Optionally, you can award users with an entry for logging in by checking Automatic entry.
Using this method, entrants will see a login form like the one below before they can access your campaign:
Instant Entry with Marketing Consent
Make sure you have the entrant's consent to send promotional emails. On the Business plan and above, you can do so by adding a checkbox field in the 'Add Custom Fields' section.
Automatically Sync Users to Your Email Provider
To sync your Competition Users into an email provider, you need to add an email integration for the Subscribe to a Newsletter action.
Manually Export Your Mailing List
If your email provider is not supported by us, or if you're using the User Details method, you can manually export emails from your Gleam campaigns.
You can export your User data through the Action tab for a specific campaign, or through the User tab for site-wide data.
