In order for your website to collect email addresses from your visitors, it needs to be connected to an email marketing tool. Because hooking everything up correctly is so important, our team is happy to handle the initial setup. Below we’ve listed the steps to provide us access to each email marketing tool so we can handle the rest:

Mailchimp

Providing us access to your Mailchimp account is a two-step process. The first step in the process is generating an API key. This key allows your website to send data to Mailchimp when someone submits their email address. Here are the steps to generate the API key:

  • Follow the steps in this Mailchimp support article. For the key’s label, use “Wired Impact Website” so it’s clear if you look at the key in the future.
  • Visit Privnote. This service improves security when sharing your API key by allowing you to create a note that can only be viewed once.
  • Create a note with your API key and copy the link Privnote provides.
  • Email the Privnote link with your API key to your dedicated project manager. If you don’t have one, reach out to our team through our Website Support form.

Now that we have your API key, we’ll need access to your account so we can test that the integration is set up correctly. To grant us access, follow the steps in this Mailchimp support article. As you’re going through the steps, remember to:

  • Use the email address of your dedicated project manager when asked for the new user’s email address. If you don’t have a dedicated project manager, use info@wiredimpact.com.
  • Choose “Manager” when asked for the user type.

Once you’re done we’ll be notified via email that our team now has access. Please note that we may add another user to your account to handle the technical side of the testing.

If your account doesn’t allow you to add any additional users, that’s completely fine. Just let us know so we can walk you through some basic testing.

That’s it. When the process is complete and you’ve started receiving new email subscribers on your live website, you should remove our users from your Mailchimp account.

Constant Contact

Constant Contact allows you to grant others access directly to your account. Just follow the steps in this Constant Contact support article. As you’re going through the steps, remember to:

  • Use the email address of your dedicated project manager when asked for the new user’s email address. If you don’t have a dedicated project manager, use info@wiredimpact.com.
  • Choose “Account manager” when asked for the new user’s role.

Once you’re done, we’ll be notified via email that our team now has access. Please note that we may add another user to your account to handle the technical side of the integration.

If your account doesn’t allow you to add any additional users, that’s completely fine. You’ll need to provide us access to your user account by following these steps:

  • Visit Privnote. This service improves security when sharing passwords by allowing you to create a note that can only be viewed once.
  • Create a note with your login credentials and copy the link Privnote provides.
  • If your account requires two-step verification through an email, a text message or a tool like Google Authenticator, look up a few times you would be available to give us the code.
  • Email the Privnote link with your login credentials, and your availability if needed, to your dedicated project manager. If you don’t have one, reach out to our team through our Website Support form.

That’s it. When the process is complete and you’ve started receiving new email subscribers on your live website, you should remove our users from your Constant Contact account.

Other Email Marketing Tools

There are plenty more email marketing tools than the ones we listed above. The first step to provide us access to your tool is to determine if it’s possible to add us as a user on your account. You can usually check this by googling “[your company’s name] provide access to another user”. If it’s possible to add us, follow their steps and remember to:

  • Use the email address of your dedicated project manager when asked for the new user’s email address. If you don’t have a dedicated project manager, use info@wiredimpact.com.
  • Use the name of your dedicated project manager if asked for the new user’s first and last name. If you don’t have a dedicated project manager, use “Wired Impact”.
  • Provide us complete control to change account settings or the account’s users. This allows us to hook up the website and invite others on our team to handle technical changes.

For some email marketing tools, it’s not possible to provide another user access to your account. If that’s the case, follow these steps:

  • Visit Privnote. This service improves security when sharing passwords by allowing you to create a note that can only be viewed once.
  • Create a note with your login credentials and copy the link Privnote provides.
  • If your account requires two-step verification through an email, a text message or a tool like Google Authenticator, look up a few times you would be available to give us the code.
  • Email the Privnote link with your login credentials, and your availability if needed, to your dedicated project manager. If you don’t have one, reach out to our team through our Website Support form.

That’s it. Once we have access, we’ll handle integrating your website with your email marketing tool and will reach out with any questions we might have.
