Gameball has created ready-to-use templates on Zapier which you can use to easily connect Mailchimp with Gameball. Once you complete the integration process, you will be able to reward your players with points after they complete the required action on Mailchimp.
Here are the two Zapier templates you can use to connect Mailchimp with Gameball:
Give rewards to Gameball players with new Mailchimp subscriptions. Click here
Relay Gameball rewards for new links clicked through Mailchimp emails. Click here
How to Use Mailchimp Templates?
Step 1: Turning on & Testing the Zap
Follow these steps to complete the integration process using the template:
Open the needed template
Log in to your Mailchimp account
Copy your Gameball API key and use it to log in on Zapier. Learn where to find your API key
Choose your Mailchimp audience you want to reward
Click Turn on Zap
Click View your Zaps, then choose the two apps connection
For the final step on Zapier, check if there are any errors and test your connection by clicking the Error Icon then Test & Continue
Note: without testing the connection between the two apps and solving all errors, the trigger event will not be sent to Gameball, and you will not be able to reward your players even if they complete the required action.
Now that you have successfully connected Gameball with Mailchimp, all you need is to create an event-based challenge on Gameball dashboard that includes the Mailchimp event name. Follow the below steps:
