How to Automatically Add Someone to a Group in Mailchimp




If you’re a user of Mailchimp, you’ve likely noticed that it’s majorly cracking down on the amount of lists (now called Audiences) that you can have.


I remember fondly the days of unlimited lists…*cue the margarita swirling


But now on the FREE plan (which I still recommend when you get rolling with your biz), you are only allowed ONE.


ONE measly audience.


Which makes list organization uber important.


So, lets say we have an event coming up that need reminders, or want to run a 4-part free email series where someone signs up on your website?


We need to organize them with Mailchimp GROUPS.


Trouble is, usually the group feature adds a pesky “hey do you want to be in this group” or "what about this group" radio button style options, which if someone is already serious about what you are offering is just annoying.


If someone is filling in a form for an event, they are giving their permission to be there.


In this video, I am going to show you how to automatically add someone to a group while by-passing the annoying options display.


Once you embed that code into a page, anyone who signs up there will be put into that group...like magic.


Copy and paste the code below when you get to that part of the video:


style="display:none"


Voila.
