iContact is a great way to manage your email campaigns and surveys. Through Zapier, you can connect this platform with EZ Texting to automate text messaging campaigns as well! If Zapier is completely new to you, it is easy to learn how to get started!
Create or Connect Your Zapier Account
Your iContact integration can be set up directly through Zapier.com. Before you create your automation or sync your contact information from iContact, you will need to create an account on Zapier.com which is free to make. If you already have an account, go ahead and login.
Create a Zap
1. Choose your app and event
2. Connect your account
3. Customize your options
4. Test your action step
Give the Zap a name so you can keep track of each function. Then choose the iContact app if it is not yet selected.
The first step requires you to choose a trigger. This means, what event has to happen in order for an action to be created? For example, if a New Contact subscribes to your iContact account, you will want something to happen with that new contact's information in your EZ Texting Account.
Important: Make sure that you receive appropriate opt in consent from the contacts that are subscribing to your text list.
First, choose the iContact app and choose the trigger event that has to take place in order for the automation to begin.
Then click Continue, to sign into your iContact account.
After you have chosen the trigger, select the action that you would like to take place in your EZ Texting account.
After you have selected the action you would like to take place in EZ Texting, click Continue to sign into your EZ account.
Once you have customized your options, go ahead and select Test & Continue. Always test your Zaps before turning them on. If you're satisfied with your automation, toggle the Zapier to on.
If you need more assistance, contact iContact support or use the Zapier help Guide to the right of your set up:
- In order to sync from an iContact list, that list must contain a field for Phone numbers. Without phone numbers we cannot match contacts between our two services
- Phone numbers must be valid ten digit North American phone numbers (no leading 1s!)
- We'll never overwrite any data in your iContact account
