SEOptimer Webhook Guide

Great news, folks! For customers on our White Label and Embedding plan, you can now send new lead data entered on your Embedded Audit form to any application that supports Webhooks.

 

This integration opens up hundreds of apps that you can now be connected to SEOptimer. In this article, we’re going to walk through setting up the Webhook with Zapier so that we can integrate it with the popular email service, MailChimp. Specifically, we’re going to use a “zap” that allows users to send new leads from SEOptimer straight to our subscriber’s list in MailChimp. Keep in mind, this will only work for customers on our White Label and Embedding plan and who’ve installed the Embeddable Audit Tool on their website.

 

Here we go:

 

1. Make sure you’re on our White Label and Embedding plan. If not, go sign up!

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