Greetings webmaster, you have been poked to dive into this webpage. The reason is because I understand that you are a marketer who uses Mailchimp for your marketing campaigns. You’re probably wondering how a pop-up can help you collect emails 5 times faster. Well, that’s what I’m here to discuss. Are you with me?
Let’s go! Here you can see how my popup looks like if I use Popupsmart:
We tried the built the same popup on Mailchimp:
Let’s assume you are a small gym owner in your neighborhood and you want to collect as many emails as you can from your registered customers to promote your online sessions, pt classes, and webinars.
You wanted to use Mailchimp to collect and store your email data but you also want to use an appealing popup to collect these emails! 😃 Let’s see how we can rock our popup with Popupsmart first.
Step 1: Create an account.
Step 2: Create your first popup. After registration, you will be directed to the Popupsmart dashboard. To create a new popup, click on "Create a New Popup."
Step 3: Set a business goal according to your preferences. In our case, we would select “Grow Your Email List”.
Step 4: Customize your popup however you like. We will add a smart tag in the headline.
Step 5: All you have to do is add the tag on the field you prefer, and make other customizations, such as adding an image and changing the colors, etc. Only one step left!
Step 6: After you make all your changes and updates on your popup. You need to integrate Popupsmart with Mailchimp. How? Find Mailchimp in the “Publish” tab under “Integrations”.
Follow the steps in our guide and voila! You just integrated Popupsmart and Mailchimp. That's easy.
Step 7: After you are done with that, let’s see how our popup would look like first.
This popup would pop up on your screen when you show it to your member named Pırıl. This is the URL:
So far so good. Now, let’s see what will happen when she enters her email address to the popup form.
See the Mailchimp account. You got her email address! 😃
If you want to use Mailchimp popup: There is no proper display option, you can select the time you want to show your popup only OR if the customer is about to exit the page. As you can see, the design is also poor due to limited options.
You can't use any of the targeting options or display options with Mailchimp.
By using Popupsmart popups, you can collect all the data you prefer. Simple yet effective. If we didn’t think that this was an effective way to get new email signups, then we wouldn’t be mentioning it!
We wanted to give you a few different options to consider and hopefully inspire you to start thinking of your email list as a valuable asset 😃
