In order to integrate your landing page with MailChimp, click on Settings and select Integrations from the list;
Now select MailChimp from the top menu;
Sign in to your MailChimp account;
After you’ve signed in, you will have to select the account, then click Continue;
On the next step, choose which list you'd like to send your leads to and what type of Opt-in you wish to require.
If you'd like to learn more about MailChimp's opt-in settings I suggest you read this: Opt-in vs. Confirmed Opt-in vs. Double Opt-in
If you don't have a list, now is the time to create one!
In this step you can choose a group, if you set one up in MailChimp;
Now, you have to map your Instapage fields to the MailChimp fields. After you map all the fields from Instapage, click Continue;
Make sure all the MailChimp fields marked with an asterisk (*) are mapped in order for the integration to work.
If you map a field with the [None] option, the submitted data will not be sent to MailChimp.
The Auto Generate option will create a text field inside your integration.
If you map an Instapage field with a field from your CRM side that has predefined options/values, then the field from Instapage side must have those exact same predefined options/values, and it is recommended for the fields from both sides to be of the same type.
And that’s it. If you went through all the steps, you should see this confirmation message. Click on Finish, then save and update your page.
- The integration only works on the live URL. It can not be tested on the preview mode. When testing on the live URL, make sure that your browser is not displaying an older cached version.
- Make sure to test the integration with different addresses because if you submit the form multiple times with the same email address the integration will flag the email as spam.
- Always test your integration with real email addresses as some systems recognize fake emails.
