Email marketing is a great way for you to reach an engaged audience and deliver targeted campaigns to them. Linktree wants to encourage this form of engagement with your audience as much as possible so we have created an Email Signup Link so your visitors can easily sign up to your mailing lists.
Currently, Our Email Signup Link supports MailChimp, Google Sheets, and Zapier.
💡 Tip: You can check how many visitors have signed up to your mailing list via your Email Signup Link in the Analytics section of your Admin.
In your Linktree Admin, head to the Settings tab and find the Mailing List Integrations section.
Toggle on the Email Signup to enable the feature.
Add your Button Text, which will be the text that displays on your link.
Add a Success Message, which will be the message that visitors are shown after they successfully submit their email addresses.
Under Storage, select either the MailChimp, Google, or Zapier Webhook option to store and save the emails that you collect.
Set up your MailChimp API
For all your email signups to flow into your Mailchimp account, you need to connect it via the Mailchimp API.
Log in to MailChimp.
Click your username, select Account, and navigate to the API keys screen.
Hit Extras and select API Keys.
Scroll down and select Create a Key.
Copy the newly generated Key, and paste it into the API field in Linktree.
In MailChimp, select the list you'd like your new email signups to go into.
🔔 Note: Make sure you only have the Email field selected in your Mail Chimp list. At the moment, Linktree can only capture email addresses.
Set up your Google Sheets URL
For all your Email Signups to flow straight into a sheet in your Google Sheets account follow these steps:
In Linktree, hit the Authorize Google Sheet button
Follow the prompt to log in to your Google Account and authorize.
Create a Google Sheet that you would like your contacts to flow into.
Copy the URL of the Google Sheet.
Paste it into the Google Sheet URL field.
🔔 Note: You'll need to make sure you are creating a Google Sheet from the same Google Account you authorized in your Linktree.
Your contact will now flow into this Google Sheet. One column for the email address, and one column for the signup date.
