How to integrate widgets with ConvertKit

If you use ConvertKit for email marketing and Getsitecontrol widgets to collect email addresses of your website visitors, you can easily connect the two apps to avoid having to manually export and import data.

1. Find the Integrations tab

You can connect your Getsitecontrol account to ConvertKit when editing your widget. Choose the Integrations tab in the top bar.

Now your accounts are connected.

3. Choose the list

You will then be offered to choose a list to connect to your widget. A list would be a ConvertKit form or landing page. Please note that the form or landing page needs to be created prior to setting up the Convertkit integration.

4. Map your widget fields

Make sure the fields of your widget are matched to those in the ConvertKit form/page. Click the Map widget fields button to check that the fields are properly matched. You can read more about field mapping here.

When you are done mapping the fields, click OK. That’s it. Now all new contacts will be automatically copied to the ConvertKit form or landing page that you have specified. You will find them in the form/page’s statistics and in your Convertkit subscribers list.

You can connect your widget to more than one third-party application. Click the +Add application link to add another integration for the current widget.
