Collecting email addresses from your visitors is probably the most simple way of having your messages spread quickly and targeted to wide audiences. And there are easy ways of expanding your mailing lists. If you have already used, for example, MailChimp signup forms, you know how practical such services are.
123ContactForm web forms can be used with great effect to add contacts to MailChimp mailing lists. All you need to do is integrate your online forms with MailChimp – at every form submission, your visitor’s email address will be sent to your MailChimp mailing lists.
Go to your 123ContactForm Settings section and select the Applications tab, to start setting up the MailChimp web form integration for your contact form. Choose MailChimp in the dropdown list and press Add. Paste your MailChimp API Key in the application box and press Save. Select, in the dropdown that shows up, the MailChimp mailing list to which you want to add email addresses.
Press Customize to open the customization lightbox. Match the MailChimp fields on the left side of the box with 123ContactForm fields. Select the latter in the dropdown lists on the right side. Press Save when you’re done.
Your MailChimp integration is now ready to use. Your visitors’ addresses will have a safe trip from any of your email forms to your MailChimp mailing lists. Check out other 3rd party applications that can be integrated with your contact forms to generate leads from your visitors.
