iContact integration using Zapier

Welcome to the iContact integration! This integration will enable customer information collected through AddEvent RSVPs to automatically be added to your iContact account!

We're excited to announce an iContact integration using Zapier!
label

Whenever you create and share an event with AddEvent, you have the option of turning on RSVP functionality so you can keep track of who will be coming to your events. RSVP forms are completely customizable, so you can collect names, email addresses and any other custom information you wish to know. This information is automatically organized and displayed in your AddEvent account.

Using the new iContact integration, when someone RSVPs for your event, they will automatically be added as a contact in iContact! It’s now easier than ever to keep your contact databases in-sync and improve you workflow efficiency.

Let's get started
label

To get started with the iContact integration, please review the steps below. For more help getting started with Zapier, please visit their Learning Center.

Step 1:

Ensure you have a Zapier account (if you do not, you will need to create a Zapier account).

Step 2:

Once you have an account, you will need to log in. Once you are logged in, please click here to go to the "App Invite" page. Click the Accept & Build a Zap button.

Step 3:

Once you've accepted the public invite, you'll be directed to the My Zaps page. Now click the 'Make A Zap!' button at the top right navigation area.

Step 4:

In the "Name your zap" input field (on your top left), please type in 'AddEvent + HubSpot'. Below the headline "1. When this happens ...", please type in 'AddEvent' in the apps search box.

Step 5:

Once you've found 'AddEvent' in the app list, click on it to take you to the next step.

Step 6:

Make sure 'AddEvent' is selected in the 'Choose App' select box and that 'New RSVP Attendee' is selected in the 'Choose Trigger Event' select box. Click 'Continue'

Step 7:

Now you need to connect Zapier with your AddEvent account. Here you need to use your AddEvent API Token. First, click the 'Sign in to AddEvent' button

Open a new browser window and sign into your AddEvent account. You can find your AddEvent API Token in the "Account" area in the 'Account ID and API Token' section.

Step 8:

Copy the API Token from your AddEvent.com account area, then paste it into the API Token section on Zapier to allow Zapier access to your AddEvent account and click 'Yes, Continue'.

Step 9:

Once you've connected your AddEvent.com account to Zapier, click 'Continue'.

Step 10:

In the next step, you may either 'Skip' or 'Find Email'. This is necessary for Zapier to test the connection by going to your AddEvent account to see if Zapier can find an email.

Step 11:

If your AddEvent account finds an email, you'll be presented with a success screen (confirmation). If no emails are found, that means you don't have any RSVP attendees yet. You can click the 'Skip' button.

Step 12:

In the next 'Do this ...' section, please type in "iContact" in the search box and click on the iContact App.

Step 13:

Next, click the 'Choose Action Event' drop down and select 'Create Contact', then click 'Continue'.

Step 14:

Next, please click the 'Sign in to iContact' button.
(If you don't have an account, you need to create an iContact account).

Step 15:

Connect your iContact account to Zapier by entering your iContact Application ID, API Password and Username / Email Address, then click 'Yes, Continue'.

iContact Application ID and API Password

To locate your iContact Application ID & API Password, log into your account, then click 'Settings and Billing' on the top right hand drop down menu.

Then, click on the 'iContact Integrations' link.

On the next page, click the 'Enable' button in the Zapier Integrations section.

On the next page, you will be presented with your Application ID, API Password, and Username / Email. Copy and paste the field values into the proper text boxes for authenticating to Zapier.

Step 16:

Once your iContact account is connected, click 'Continue'.

Step 17:

Next, please select 'Email' in the 'Email Address' select box and your iContact List in the 'List' select box. Click the 'Continue' button.

Optional: If you would like the first and last name to be populated into your iContact list, scroll down to the First and Last Name fields, click the Plus option, and select the fields to populate.

Step 18:

Next, you can send a test to iContact or skip the test. It's recommended to send a test to ensure a successful connection and that the data is being added to the iContact correctly.

Step 19:

Now, your Zap is ready to be turned on! Click the 'Turn Zap On' button and you're all set! Your event RSVPs will now automatically be added as contacts to your iContact list 😎
