WordPress New Post Notification To ActiveCampaign List Contacts

The New Post Notification email automation feature in MailOptin is an essential tool for email list builders.

In this tutorial, we will learn how to set up new post notifications to your email list contacts on ActiveCampaign; it will go a long way in saving you the stress of manually creating newsletters for every new post you publish on your WordPress site.

MailOptin will automatically send the new post newsletter to your mailing list on your behalf for every new post you publish.

You can follow the guide below to learn how to set it up.

Firstly, in your ActiveCampaign account, create a default address if you haven’t already. This is very important; otherwise, no email campaigns will be sent by ActiveCampaign. Do that now by following this guide.

Ensure you’ve connected MailOptin with your ActiveCampaign account. If you haven’t done that, go ahead and do it before returning to this tutorial.

Click “Email Automations“> Create New.

Enter your “Automation Title” and “Select Automation Type” > “New Post Notification” > Select Template.

Here’s how to use your own custom email template.

Creating new email automation

After selecting your template, you will be taken to the email customizer page, where you can configure the automation settings, template page, template header, template content, and even send a test email to your email address.

For this process to work without issues, you need to click the “Campaign/Automation Settings” and select “ActiveCampaign” as your connection.

Then select a specific email list to send the email to.

You can also decide to send the newsletters immediately after post-publication by checking “Send immediately” or schedule it to be sent minutes, hours, or days after post-publication.

So that you know, you can create as much automation to be sent to a different email list based on the categories and tags the post belongs to.

Set up is now complete.

Every time MailOptin sends a new post newsletter to your list, you will see the record in your ActiveCampaign dashboard.
