This guide will show you how to take your sweepstakes and integrate it with Campaign Monitor so that you can start sending names and email addresses right into any Campaign Monitor list.

1) Connect to Campaign Monitor

When setting up your sweepstakes, go to the Connect Email Service section and click on Campaign Monitor.

2) Input Credentials

In order to get your API Key, login to your Campaign Monitor account and go to Account Settings > Show API Key

Add your Campaign Monitor API Key and click the connect button.

3) Choose a list

Once you successfully input your credentials and click the connect button, we will reveal your Campaign Monitor lists. Simply choose a list from the dropdown menu and click connect.

4) You're connected

That's it, you're all set. Your sweepstakes is now connected to your Campaign Monitor account, and we will send any names and email addresses right into that Campaign Monitor list.


If you have connected your sweepstakes to Campaign Monitor and email addresses are not being added to your list, these are the most common reasons as to why:

Email already in Campaign Monitor list
The email address entered into the sweepstakes may already be in your Campaign Monitor list, so it will not be added again.
Email already entered into ViralSweep
The email address entered into the sweepstakes has already been entered into the sweepstakes previously, so therefore it is not passed to Campaign Monitor. This can happen if you set up your Campaign Monitor integration after you have already entered the sweepstakes.
User did not opt-in
The user did not click the link in their double opt-in confirmation email that was sent to them. If they don't click that link, they won't be added to your list.
Delay in reporting
Campaign Monitor is having a delay in reporting. Try checking again in a few hours.
