How to Integrate SEOptimer with Zapier (Mailchimp Example)

how to integrate SEOptimer with Zapier and MailChimp

 

Great news, folks! For customers on SEOptimer’s ‘Premium – White Label & Embedding‘ plan, you can now send any new lead data entered on your Embedded Audit form to Zapier! If you haven’t heard of Zapier yet, Zapier is a powerful integration tool that allows you to integrate many of the apps that you’re already using.

 

This integration with Zapier will open up hundreds of apps that you can now connect SEOptimer to – the options are endless! In this article, we are going to walk through setting up SEOptimer with Zapier so that we can integrate it with the popular email service, MailChimp. Specifically, we are going to use a “zap” that allows users to send any new leads from SEOptimer straight to our subscriber’s list at MailChimp. Keep in mind, this will only work for users that have the ‘Premium – White Label & Embedding’ plan and are collecting emails.

 

Here we go:

 

1. Make sure you’re using the SEOptimer ‘Premium – White Label & Embedding’ plan. If not, go sign up!

2. Head on over to Zapier.com and either create an account or log in:
