How to integrate widgets 
with MailChimp

If you use MailChimp 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. Simply choose the necessary mailing list and GetSiteControl will add every new email subscriber to this list automatically.

1. Find the Integrations tab

You can connect your GetSiteControl account to MailChimp when creating a widget. Once you’ve chosen your goal and selected the template, click the Next button in the top right corner of your dashboard. Then click Integrations in the top bar.

You can also enable opt-in confirmation emails, then a letter to confirm the subscription will be sent to all new subscribers. If they don’t click the link in this email they won’t be added to your list.

4. Map your widget fields

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