Why This Step Is Important

Integrating MailChimp with Elementor will allow you to use the Elementor Form Widget to create and design your email opt-in forms. This way, when somebody signs up to join your mailing list, their email will automatically be added to the appropriate list (and tagged) in MailChimp.

Step 2: Add An Opt-In Form To Your Site Using Elementor

Elementor Pro is required for this step. Read our Elementor Pro review.

Complete The Following Tasks

Add an email opt-in form to your page.
Open the Elementor editor and add one of our CTA MailChimp section templates.
Adjust the Form Widget settings.
In the Form Fields tab, make sure sure your form fields match the required fields set in your MailChimp account.
For example, if you require an email address and first name in your MailChimp account, you will need to add a first name field and email field to the form widget.

These settings can be found in your MailChimp account by going to Audience > Manage Audience > Settings > Audience fields and *|MERGE|* tags and selecting which fields are required.
In the Actions After Submit tab, add MailChimp and Redirect to the Add Action box.
In the Redirect tab, enter the URL of your thank you page.
In the MailChimp tab, select your Audience.
In the Mailchimp tab, add tags to the Tag field so you can easily segment your subscribers when sending emails.
In the Field Mapping section of the MailChimp tab, match the required MailChimp fields with the associated Elementor fields.
Test your opt-in form and check your MailChimp account to make sure you have been successfully subscribed.
Did you know you can add "+keyword" to your email address in order to test your opt-in form multiple times?

For example, the following email addresses will all be treated as unique email addresses by MailChimp:

[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]

Anything sent to the above email addresses will be delivered to your default email account [email protected].

FAQ


How do I download your MailChimp templates?

All of our tutorials are based around our free Elementor templates.

Watch our tutorial to learn how to download and import our Elementor templates into your templates library.

The MailChimp templates can be found in the SECTION-templates-1 zip file. The templates use the following naming structure: LP-CTA-MAILCHIMP.

Can I still use your Elementor templates if I'm not using MailChimp?

Yes, our Elementor templates will work with any email provider that integrates with Elementor. By default our Elementor templates have “MailChimp” selected in the form widget, however, you can change this to another service if you want to.

When editing the form widget, in the “Action After Submit” tab, you can remove the MailChimp tag and change it to another provider such as Convertkit, Drip, ActiveCampaign, Mailerlite, etc.
