Before we begin…
In order to integrate Optinly with FluentCRM, we’ll use the webhook functionality of both tools. Note that the webhook functionality is only available in FluentCRM Pro. Currently, they are offering a 20% discount on the plugin. In case you haven’t bought FluentCRM yet, you can buy FluentCRM Pro in a couple of clicks.
So without further ado, let’s start our journey to integrate Optinly with FluentCRM.
Integrating Optinly with FluentCRM
Although Optinly doesn’t have FluentCRM integration yet, we do have an easy-to-configure webhook. Our webhook is as simple as pasting a URL to send data to other platforms; you don’t have to do anything except that.
However, you need to generate a webhook URL from FluentCRM first. So if you have installed and configured FluentCRM. Here are the steps to generate a webhook URL:
1.Open FluentCRM and go to Settings> Incoming WebHooks.
2. Click the Create Webhook button to create a webhook configuration. A webhook configuration window will appear.
3. Here, give a name to your webhook and select the List and Tags to add the contacts to the lists and tags you want. In the status field, you can choose Subscribed or Pending. If you choose Subscribed, FluentCRM will accept the contact without sending any opt-in confirmation email. However, we recommend choosing the Pending status so that your contacts can confirm their subscription before receiving emails from you.
4. Click Create and close the configuration window. Then, click the tiny copy button to copy your webhook URL.
Now that you’ve got your webhook URL, you need to configure a webhook integration in Optinly to send contacts to FluentCRM. To do that:
5. Login to your Optinly dashboard and go to Integrations. Here you’ll see all the possible applications you can integrate with Optinly.
6.Scroll down and click the webhook integration. This will bring up a pop-up window.
7. Paste the webhook URL you’ve acquired from FluentCRM and click Save.
That’s it! Now all the leads that came through your Optinly campaigns will be automatically added to FluentCRM.
