1) Connect to Mailerlite
When setting up your campaign, go to the Connect Email Service section and click on Mailerlite.
2) Input Credentials
Input your Mailerlite API key. You can find your API key in your Mailerlite account by clicking your account name, then going to Integrations > Developer API.
Once you have your API key, paste it into ViralSweep.
3) Choose a group
Once you successfully input your credentials and click the connect button, we will reveal your Mailerlite groups. Simply choose a group from the dropdown menu and click connect.
4) You're connected
That's it, you're all set. Your campaign is now connected to your Mailerlite account, and we will send user data right into your Mailerlite group.
What data do you pass to Mailerlite?
ViralSweep will pass the following fields::
- First Name
- Last Name
- Email Address
- Address 2
- Referral URL
- Campaign ID
Do you update subscribers?
Yes, if you run a promotion and we pass someone to Mailerlite, then you run another promotion in the future and the same person enters, we will automatically update their information in Mailerlite (if any new information is provided). Mainly, the referral URL will be updated with the newest URL for each promotion they enter.
If you have connected your campaign to Mailerlite and users are not being added to your list, these are the most common reasons as to why:
Email already in Mailerlite list
The email address entered into the Mailerlite list may already be in your Mailerlite list, so it will not be added again.
Email already entered into ViralSweep
The email address entered into the campaign has already been entered into the campaign previously, so therefore it is not passed to Mailerlite again. This can happen if you set up your Mailerlite integration after you have already entered the campaign.
Delay in reporting
Mailerlite is having a delay in reporting. Try checking again in a few hours.
