If you wish to integrate your MailChimp account with your Viral Loops campaign, simply follow these steps:
- Go to the 'Integrations' step in your campaign's wizard.
- Find the MailChimp integration and enable it.
- Then select 'Edit'.
- Input your MailChimp API key, select 'Connect' and 'Save'.
And that's it! Viral Loops will automatically create a blank Mailchimp list. All the new participants (participant's email address, first name, last name, referral code, total referrals and share URL) from your campaign will be automatically added to that list in MailChimp!
In case a contact already exists with the participant’s email address, then no duplicate contact is created.
Now, if you want to build and send automated emails for specific segments (e.g. a segment related to the number of referrals) in MailChimp (and bypass some of the email options given in the Viral Loops campaign wizard), please have a look at the following video (effective only in the Milestone, Refer a friend, eCommerce and Online to Offline templates.):
Note: if you wish to add a link in your Mailchimp campaign with the share URL merge tag, use the
*|SHAREURL|* merge tag.
