Getting a new email subscriber feels great.
It is proof that your marketing was so good that someone had to sign up for your offer. And if all goes well, this new subscriber will end up as your student/customer.
But this feeling doesn’t last long.
You may find yourself wanting to pull out your hair while adding this new subscriber to the right list to activate the autoresponder sequence. When you add the subscriber to the wrong list OR even forget to add them to any list in the first place – it can be pretty frightening. In the end, the process is repetitive, time-consuming, and messy.
Or you could hire someone to do it. Problem is – they might make mistakes and you are back to square one. What if there was a better way to do all this – something that would allow you to focus on what matters – Growing your business.
Well, sounds like your wishes just came true, because we have now integrated Kyvio with Zapier.
Zapier is an online tool that helps you do repetitive tasks automatically. It connects to other software packages, allowing them to communicate and transfer data from one place to the other. This new integration means that you can now connect your Kyvio account with other third-party software packages using Zapier. And there’s no need to learn anything new or hire someone else to do it for you.
Zapier works with triggers and actions. A trigger is an event that happens within one software package prompting another action inside another software package. e.g. A new subscriber signs up to your list inside Smart Mailer within Kyvio and then he/she is automatically added to a Webinar on Zoom, GoToWebinar or any other that you are using.
Once you have a new subscriber or somebody unsubscribes from your list, the application triggers automatically in line with the actions you set up inside Kyvio Smart Mailer. Besides, you can also create links between two services to add, remove, or move people to your lists inside Smart Mailer.
Today, I will be walking you through how you can do that in three simple steps:
Log into your Kyvio account. Then go to Integrations > Add new integration > choose Zapier
After that, click on the ‘Generate API Key’ button and then copy the key for use in Step 2.
Log into your Zapier account > click on Make a Zap! > Search for and select Kyvio
After you have selected Kyvio, choose a Trigger. A trigger is basically an action that provokes another action (or simply a reaction). Think of it as when someone quickly passes their hand close to your eyes. You will either close your eyes or lean back to prevent them from touching you.
Zapier works in the same way, only that you are the one who tells it what to do (trigger) after specific action on your site e.g when someone subscribes to your list. Zapier works like this: if <trigger> then <action>
For Kyvio, there are currently three triggers available:
- A Zap to trigger when one of your subscribers unsubscribes
- A Zap to trigger when a new subscriber goes into one of your lists
- A Zap to trigger when a new subscriber is added to a list ( Deprecated )
In this guide, we’ll use the second trigger as an example
After clicking on the continue button, connect your Kyvio account with your Zapier account with the code you copied in Step 1. Paste that code in the box written ‘API KEY.’
After adding your account, you will need to select a list from where the subscribers will be triggering the Zap
After doing so, you will be requested to manually or through an Opt-in to add a subscriber to your list. Once you have done so
Let’s test that by adding a subscriber to your list inside Kyvio. Once you have done so you can press the “Pull in My Samples” button to finish the Trigger setup
And that way, you have successfully set up a Kyvio subscription to be a Zapier trigger.
Now all you need to do is to set up an Action for the trigger that you have just created.
In this case, we have chosen the action to be from Gmail, but please remember, you can set any application available on Zapier that has an action.
After clicking the ‘Continue’ button, you will have to select and allow access for your Gmail account.
Your next step is to configure your Gmail action:
And what we have set is :
Send mail (to): Our own email address email@example.com
The From email: Again one of your emails firstname.lastname@example.org
The subject of the email: example: a new subscriber has been added to your list!
The body of the Email: we have included the subscriber name/email and the list number or name within.
You are able to do more configurations, but for the sake of this guide, we have made only these four.
After you have configured your email click on the continue button
Send out a test email to see if the action is working as intended.
Ideally, your test email should arrive at the designated destination.
After you receive your email, click on the finish button within your Zapier action settings, and activate your ZAP.
This way, you would have set up Zapier so that when a new subscriber opts into your list, you receive an email notification telling you their name, email address and the list they are in.
Think of the last time you had to manually add a new subscriber to your email list…
I bet you never liked it, right?
Here are two triggers you can set up right away inside your Kyvio account:
- What should happen when multiple subscribers join your list at the same time
- What should happen when someone unsubscribes from your list
