BookFunnel MailChimp Integration

Questions About MailChimp Integration

  1. I'm already a BookFunnel author, how do I get MailChimp integration?

    MailChimp integration is included on all Bestseller and Publisher accounts, and is available as an option ($5/mo. or $50/yr.) on the Mid-List author plan. You can go to the Settings page on your dashboard to upgrade your account any time you like.

  2. How does MailChimp integration work?

    You create a BookFunnel Giveaway link that points to one of your MailChimp mailing lists and then share it with readers. When they click the link, they are taken to your Giveaway page where they can sign up for your mailing list.

    Entering their email address adds them to your MailChimp list where MailChimp then sends them an email to confirm their email address. Once confirmed, they are subscribed to your list, and MailChimp will send them your welcome email or start them on whatever automations you've already set up.

  3. When is the reader added to my mailing list?

    As soon as they confirm their email address. There is no delay.

  4. Does the reader have to confirm their email address?

    Yes. Once they submit their email address, MailChimp will send an email to confirm their address. Once they click the link to confirm, they're subscribed.

  5. Can I use my Giveaway link as my landing page?

    Absolutely! Your Giveaway page on BookFunnel can be a quick offer for some ad or contest, or it can be your permanent signup page on the web. Use it any way you like.

  6. Can I create more than one Giveaway link?

    Of course! You can create as many as you like.

  7. Can these links be shared with others?

    If the link is shared, and someone else wants your free book, they'll have to sign up for your mailing list like anyone else. So, let's hope they get shared!

  8. Can each Giveaway point to a different mailing list?

    Yes. Multiple Giveaways can point to the same list, or each Giveaway can point to any list you choose.

  9. How do I set this up?

    Once you have MailChimp integration enabled on your account, you'll find a help document and video describing the integration process in the help section of your dashboard.
