MailChimp Integration

Take Control of your fanbase!

Collecting fan emails will allow you to begin marketing to them directly, strengthening your relationship and increasing views. 

Unreel users are prompted to input their email address when signing up for a site/app.  Having an account is required whenever a user attempts to engage with a video (commenting, creating a GIF/MEME etc...) or pays for content behind a paywall.  Anytime a fan signs up for your site/apps, you can easily have their email added to your own email marketing list to contact them directly!  To do so is simple with our MailChimp Integration. 

Integrating MailChimp

Step 1: Create a MailChimp account

MailChimp is respected as the internet's premier email marketing service.  It allows you to compile lists, compose beautifully designed marketing emails, and track analytics around your sent messages. Creating an account is free!  Click here to create your free MailChimp account. 

Step 2: Accessing your MailChimp API key

Once you have created a MailChimp account, you will need to find your API key (A unique serial code associated with your account) to let Unreel know where to send your fan's email addresses. To find the code from your MailChimp account dashboard select "Profile" from the drop down menu under your username.


Next select "Extras" and from the drop down select "API Keys"

From there you will find your unique API key.  Select it, and copy it.

Step 3: Entering your MailChimp API key into you Admin

Go to your Dashboard, select "Settings," and from the drop down select "Integrations."  

From the "Integrations" page you will see the section titled "MailChimp."  Next to the section titled " API Key" paste the API Key you copied from step 2. 

Step 4: Creating your fan email list

Underneath where you input the API Key is the section "List."  If you already have a MailChimp list you would like to start adding your user's emails to, select it from the drop down.  If you have yet to set up a list, select "+Add List" You will be taken to MailChimp to create a list to add your user's email addresses to.



Step 5: Market, market, market! 

Email is the number one tool when it comes to marketing and is the easiest way to drive target to your content.  Be sure to consistently email your list when new content or deals are released!  Re-engaging your current fans is the best way to bring in new fans. Sharing and evangelism will bring new viewers into the fold.
