How To Integrate MailChimp with Webinar Jam

  • Copy the form code provided by Mailchimp and paste it into a NotePad
  • Copy code marked <form action  ....  and continue until you reach </form> (See Highlighted area below)  This is all our form needs.
  • Alternative: simply remove the <script .... </script> code from the bottom as that can prevent people from being able to register for the webinar and / or not be registered with MailChimp.  Copy the rest of the code

Edit Your Webinar

  1. Edit your webinar,   
  2. Go to the Integrations tab. 
  3. Select Mailchimp from the choices 

Add the code to the popup

  1. Paste the form code you copied from MailChimp without the Script (Marked #1 Below)
  2. OPTIONAL If you’re collecting the phone number as well, make sure you enter the name of the phone
    field in the textbox. To find that in your code, look for this line:  
    <label for=”mce-MMERGE3″>Phone Number </label>
    <input type=”text” name=”MMERGE3″ class=”” value=”” id=”mce-MMERGE3″>
    Note this part:
    Enter ‘MMERGE3′ in the textbox for the Phone field.  (Marked #2 Below)
