Setting up MailChimp

How does the Squeeze Page Toolkit work with MailChimp?

Once the toolkit has access to your MailChimp account, it will automatically fetch the Subscriber Lists you’ve created in MailChimp.

When you create a squeeze page with the toolkit, the opt-in form is a representation of your default form for your list, so when a visitor enters their email address and name into your form, they will be subscribed to that subscriber list.


How do I set up MailChimp with the toolkit?

  1. Tell the toolkit your MailChimp API details, which allows the toolkit to talk to MailChimp automatically.
  2. Create an ActionSet, which is where you choose which Subscriber List you want the visitor subscribed to when they enter their details.

Then you can create a squeeze page in the usual way. When you add an opt-in form, choose which ActionSet you want to use for that opt-in form.


1) Finding the MailChimp API details and getting the toolkit talking to MailChimp

a) The MailChimp documentation takes you through finding and generating your API details.

b) Once you have your API key, you need to enter your API key (e.g. 9f559dac06cb075f901127d19e362b83-us1) into the toolkit integration page for MailChimp.

c) Then click ‘Save Details‘.
