This guide will show you how to integrate your promotions with Drip to start sending data right into any campaign.
1) Connect to Drip
When setting up your promotion in ViralSweep, go to the Connect Email Service section and click on Drip.
You will be asked to grant access to ViralSweep. Click Authorize.
2) Choose a campaign
ViralSweep will automatically pull in your Drip campaigns. Simply choose a campaign you want to add subscribers to from the drop down menu.
3) Add tags and choose opt-in status
ViralSweep supports tagging through Drip, so you can automatically tag your subscribers when we pass them into Drip. Simply type your tags in and separate them with a comma. If you don't want to tag them, leave this blank.
In addition, you can disable the double opt-in email that Drip will send when someone subscribes. Simply check off the box to disable it.
4) You're connected!
That's it, you're all set. Your promotion is now connected to your Drip account, and your entrants will automatically be added to your Drip campaign.
What data do you pass to Drip?
ViralSweep will pass the following fields into Drip:
- First Name
- Last Name
- Email Address
- Referral URL
- Any tags you've added when connecting to Drip
Do you update subscribers?
Yes, if you run a promotion and we pass someone to Drip, then you run another promotion in the future and the same person enters, we will automatically update their information in Drip (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 promotion to Drip and entrants are not being added to your camapign, these are the most common reasons as to why:
Email already in Drip list
The email address entered into the promotion may already be in your Drip list, so it will not be added again.
Email already entered into ViralSweep
The email address entered into the promotion has already been entered into the promotion previously, so therefore it is not passed to Drip. This can happen if you set up your Drip integration after you have already entered the promotion.
Delay in reporting
Drip is having a delay in reporting. Try checking again in a few hours.
