Premium Feature: Automatic Email List Subscribe

The 'Subscribing to a Mailing List' entry option is available by upgrading to the grow subscription. This entry option will allow you to connect an entry option to the following nine ESPs:

  • MailChimp
  • AWeber
  • Constant Contact
  • Campaign Monitor
  • iContact
  • Mad Mimi
  • Infusionsoft
  • GetResponse
  • Mailjet

As entrants enter your giveaway through the email entry option, they'll click a radio button and then click 'Enter!' (see the right side of the screenshot below). What that will do is place the entrant's email address on your email list that you chose when creating the giveaway widget.

If you're using Campaign Monitor, iContact, GetResponse, Mad Mimi, or Mailjet, you'll need to provide your API key to connect your account to your giveaway. Get directions on how to do this with at the related articles below:

    What if I don't use email list software, but just keep my own database of my own email subscribers?

    Hey Carol - if that's the case, you're still able to download your entries into a .csv file that will allow you to upload your entries through a spreadsheet.

    I want to make sure I don't end up with duplicates on my list. Is this set up to filter that out on the Campaign Monitor side? Thanks!

    Hey Cynthia! Yes, all ESPs above will see that no duplicate email addresses are on the same email list. In other words, if I'm on your email list already, and I join your giveaway through an email list entry option, I won't be added to your list twice. Hope that helps!

    We use emaildirect.com. Is there anything specific we need to do to link rafflecopter up? We want to include a newsletter option in one of our upcoming promos/giveaways. I have an API key. Thank you for your help!

    Hey Andrea - I'd be happy to walk you through how you might setup :) Can you shoot me an email at support@rafflecopter.com about this?

    I use Aweber so it looks like it would integrate easily.  When it comes to entries, do they have to click the confirmation link to fully sign up for the list or does it count to just put in an email address?  My concern is people putting in their email address then never "opting in" to my mailing list.  The last thing I want is 1000 people who never click the link on the confirmation page.

    Hey David -- Happy to clarify :) The entrants will have to opt-in to the email list.  If you have any further questions/concerns about this functionality please don't hesitate to email us at support@rafflecopter.com

    I'd love to see Mailpoet finally added to this list. It's the largest WP plugin for mailing lists and has an a new API. Surely support for it would make Rafflecopter even more attractive?
