What you can do

 
  • Add a subscriber to your ActiveCampaign contacts 
  • Add a subscriber to an ActiveCampaign list, whether or not the contact already exists
  • Add a subscriber to an ActiveCampaign automation, whether or not the contact already exists
  • Send additional details to Active Campaign: Email, First name, Last name, Phone Number and any custom fields that you have mapped in the integration settings. 
 

How to activate the ActiveCampaign integration 

 

Step 1 - Connect your ActiveCampaign account to a property you will want to use the integration with in a flow 

 
  • Navigate to the integration page
Navigate to the property you want to add the integration to. If you just started your Leadjetty account, you most likely only have one property, which would be your website.
You can find a list of all your properties under the "locator" icon in the sidebar (https://www.leadjetty.com/properties), then click on the relevant property to reveal the options. 

Click on the Integrations tab.
  • Click the ActiveCampaign box

  • Add your api access url and api key
The api key, as well as the api access url, can be found in your active campaign account under settings/developer. 
Save both.

Step 2 - Map the data you want sent to Active Campaign


Email, First Name, Last Name and Phone Number (if you collect any of them), are automatically sent for you to ActiveCampaign if you use an ActiveCampaign Action in your Leadjetty Flow.

Once your ActiveCampaign account is connected, if you have created any custom fields for your contacts in ActiveCampaign, you will have the ability to choose a contact attribute data in Leadjetty to send to your custom ActiveCampaign fields. 
For instance if you collect information in your Leadjetty Flows, such as a topic your visitors are interested in, you could set it up to be send to a matching field in their ActiveCampaign profile.

Step 3 - Using the integration in a Flow


After a contact enters their email address and name, you will probably want to send the visitor details either to your contacts or by adding them to a list in your Active Campaign account. 

At any step in a Flow, you can choose to send some info to your ActiveCampaign. 
You have three choices:
  1. - Add a visitor to your ActiveCampaign Contacts
  2. - Add a visitor to your ActiveCampaign List
  3. - Add a visitor to your ActiveCampaign Automation

For each option, choose from the list of Actions at any step by clicking the + icon in the Actions box for the step.

Keep in mind, you can trigger the integration at any step within a flow but you have to have collected their email during the step or at a previous step.

  • Add the visitor to your Contacts
If the Contact with this email address doesn't exist in your ActiveCampaign Account, a contact is created and any information you have collected and mapped (step 2) will be sent.
If the email address already exists in your ActiveCampaign account, the contact will get updated with any information they fill out that you have chosen to send along (step 2).

  • Add the visitor to a list.
You will be prompted to choose a list to add it to. 
When a contact fills out the Flow, if the contact already exists in your active campaign account, it will be added to the List otherwise a contact will be created and then added to the chosen List automatically for you. 
Any additional details will be sent along and update the contact if you mapped any on step 2.

  • Add the visitor to an Automation
You will be prompted to choose an Automation to add it to. 
When a contact fills out the Flow, if the contact already exists in your active campaign account, it will be added to the Automation otherwise a contact will be created and then added to the chosen Automation automatically. 
Any additional details will be sent along and update the contact if you mapped any on step 2.
