Integrating EventsFrame with MailerLite
To begin collecting attendee information with MailerLite you need first to connect MailerLite via your account settings. For basic setup of integrations see this article.
MailerLite is email automation designed for small businesses, bloggers and authors. For up to 1,000 subscribers the basic MailerLite account is free! (at the time of writing this article!)
Setting up MailerLite with EventsFrame
Once you have added MailerLite in account settings, you will need to enter the API key that can be found in your MailerLite account.
MailerLite >> Upper Right Menu >> Integrations >> Developer API >> Use >> Copy API key
we now take this API key and enter it in the setup screen of MailerLite in EventsFrame.
Getting started with MailerLite
With MailerLite setup, you can proceed to use it with any of your events. Head over to the event, click on Registration, then head over to Integrations and select MailerLite to enable it.
The last step is to select the Group from MailerLite to sync your attendees. This can be one overall group for all events, or an individual group per event - the choice is yours! Alternatively you can add attendees directly to the main subscribers list.
Custom fields must be created in MailerLite before accepting registrations. These must have exactly the same format as the custom field in EventsFrame (spelling, punctuation). The records in MailerLite must be created in TXT format. Tip: test with a sample registration to check you are collecting the correct information.
