How to integrate widgets with MailerLite

If you use MailerLite 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 MailerLite when editing your widget. Choose the Integrations tab in the top bar.
