Integrating with Your Mailing List Provider

Integration with your mailing list service means that when we collect an email on your behalf, we can add that email to your mailing list immediately, without the export/import CSV dance required. Readers receive a unique, non-shareable link to download your book and are added to your mailing list immediately. Learn how to use BookFunnel without direct integration with your mailing list here.

BookFunnel Integrates With These Services

  • ActiveCampaign
  • AWeber
  • ConvertKit
  • MailChimp
  • MailerLite

Integration is included on all Bestseller and Publisher plans, and can optionally be added to a Mid-List plan. Compare plans and pricing and learn how to change your plan here.

How Integration Works

You create a giveaway page that collects emails and point it to one of your mailing lists, and then share it with readers. When they click the link, they can sign up for your mailing list. You can choose to confirm or not confirm the reader’s email address before they are added to your list. Once on your list, you can have your mailing list begin any automation sequences you have set up. Learn how to create a download page here.

To get started:

  1. Make sure you have Integration on your account. If you are on a Mid-List plan and want to add Integration, learn how to change your plan to Mid-List + Integration here.
  2. Click Integration on your dashboard and integrate with your mailing list service
  3. Create a download page that collects emails
  4. Check the box to require a reader to opt-in to your mailing list
  5. Point it to your mailing list
  6. Share the download page link with readers
  7. BookFunnel will collect their email address and add them to your mailing list automatically

FAQ

How can I restrict my download page to only allow existing subscribers to download my book?
Can I still download a CSV, even if BookFunnel is adding them to my mailing list?

Yes, if you create a Giveaway page, we will always store the reader data in a CSV on your dashboard. Learn where you can find it here.

Does the reader receive my MailChimp welcome email?

MailChimp will only send your “final welcome” email when using MailChimp’s own confirmation and subscription process. You can use MailChimp’s automations to send a welcome email to subscribers as they are added.

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.

Can I create more than one Giveaway link?

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

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!

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. You can point to multiple lists, but they must all be on the same account.

Can I integrate with more than one mailing list service? MailerLite and MailChimp, for example?

No. Your account can only integrate with one mailing list service.
