Connecting a Kimonix Campaign to an email provider
Hello, there. in this guilde we will go through the steps needed to connect a kimonix campaign to an email campaign on your email provider.
I don’t have an email provider
An email provider that supports email variable is needed (almost all email providers). please integrate your shop to one of the email providers mentioned in the next paragraph, or to an email provider that supports email variables (sometimes called personalization tags).
Notice that, As for now, Shopify Email has no support for email variables, so it doesn’t match that purpose.
I use Shopify Email
As for now, Shopify Email doesn’t support email variables, which is something we need to make it work. please integrate your shop to one of the email providers mentioned in the next paragraph, or to an email provider that supports email variables (sometimes called personalization tags).
I use one of the following email providers:
Klaviyo, Mailchimp, ActiveCampaign, MailerLite, Omnisend, Privy.
if you do use one of the above email providers, that is great since they all support email variables. As you will later see, Embedding the email address parameter is needed. skip the next paragraph and begin the guide.
I use another email provider
No warries, all its needed is that your email provider will support email variables (sometimes called personalization tags and other names). most do. check with your email provider that this is supported and continue reading this guide.
If you have got to this part you use one of the email providers mentioned in the paragraph above, or another email provider that supports email variables. that’s great. the following steps talks about how to implement this in Mailchimp, but it is very similar in each of the email providers.
1. Select an email provider on the Kimonix app:
In this example I have selected Mailchimp.
2. Copy the Embed URL from a selected campaign:
3. Go to you email provider site – in this example, Mailchimp. assumed that you have already created a campaign, paste the Embed URL that you have copied, to an element in the campaign, lets say a button:
4. That’s it! your campaign is ready to launch.
If you have an email provider that is not on the list, just check with it how should you embed the email variable. For a example, in Mailchimp the format of the email variable is in red:
but this can very in other email providers. check how to embed the email variable and replace the red part of the Embed URL in the format of your email provider.
