You may have noticed that the latest release of Thrive Architect is full of awesome new features.
In recent posts, we’ve showcased a few of these upgrades including the Global Button Styles and Scroll Behavior features.
And we're not slowing down any time soon. Today we're announcing yet another email marketing tool integration for our Lead Generation forms in Thrive Themes plugins.
What new Email Service Provider can you now easily connect your opt-in forms to?
Say hello to Sendlane.
Connecting Your Thrive Dashboard with Sendlane
The technical steps needed to link your Thrive Themes Dashboard with Sendlane are few and simple.
Make sure to watch David’s Sendlane tutorial video above to see just how quick and easy setting up this API really is.
To get started, login to your Sendlane account to retrieve all your necessary API keys. You’ll need 3 pieces of information to integrate your Sendlane account with your Thrive Themes Dashboard:
- Your Sendlane account URL address
- Your Sendlane account API key
- Your Sendlane account Hash key
All of this information can be found under the ‘Your Security Credentials’ section within your Sendlane account dashboard.
Next, login to your WordPress site, click on the ‘Thrive Dashboard’ tab, scroll down to the ‘API Connections’ box and click on the ‘Manage Connections’ button.
Finally, connect your Sendlane account to your Thrive Themes Dashboard by clicking the ‘Add new Connection’ box, selecting Sendlane from the drop down menu, and entering your Sendlane API security credentials.
Click the ‘Connect’ button and your Thrive Themes plugins (like Thrive Architect, Thrive Leads and Thrive Quiz Builder) will now have the ability to connect Sendlane to any opt-in form you create.
Lead Generation Form Setup and Tags
Once your Thrive Dashboard is linked to your Sendlane account, connecting any of your Thrive Themes lead generation forms to Sendlane becomes super simple.
To do that, first select your Lead Generation element and then click on the ‘Connect Form To Service’ option that appears in the Thrive editor sidebar.
In the lightbox that appears next, choose the Sendlane API connection to set your connection details.
Here you’ll be able to select which Sendlane mailing list you want to send subscriber data to as well as what specific tags you want to affix to your subscribers.
To attach tags to the subscriber, just enter the tag name. If you want to use multiple tags, separate them by commas. Don’t worry if the tag doesn’t exist yet in your Sendlane account yet. The new tag will be added as soon as the first subscriber to that form signs up.
Once your mailing list and tags have been setup, move on to the ‘Set Form Fields’ section. Here you can select what subscriber opt-in information you want to collect by setting either optional or required form fields for email, name and even a phone number.
Finally, in the Post Opt-In Action section, pick one of four possible actions you want to happen at the end of your signup process:
- Reload Page
- Redirect to Custom URL
- Show Success Notification
- Switch State (for Thrive Leads forms only)
Click 'Save' and your lead generation element is now connected to your Sendlane account.
