Struggling to connect WordPress with Mailjet? Learn to easily create a Mailjet subscribe form in WordPress right here!
Mailjet is a cutting edge and hugely popular email marketing solution used by more than 100,000 companies around the globe. Unfortunately, their official presence in WordPress is lacking. If you’re a Mailjet devotee, don’t fret. There’s an easy way to create a Mailjet subscribe form in WordPress!
If you’ve visited WordPress.org recently looking for a plugin to integrate your site with your favorite marketing solution, you’ve probably been disappointed. There’s not a lot there, and what is there probably doesn’t bring you the flexibility you need to take full advantage of the features Mailjet offers.
Custom integrations can do the trick, but coding and then maintaining your own connection to Mailjet can be a significant investment.
What other options are there? Using Ninja Forms and Zapier, you can very easily create your own Mailjet subscribe form in WordPress. Easy setup, zero maintenance. Check it out!
How to create a Mailjet subscribe form in WordPress
Creating a Mailjet subscribe form in WordPress requires 4 simple steps. You’ll find them below, and it won’t take 15 minutes to put it together. Let’s get going!
1. Get set up with Zapier.
Next, create an account with Zapier themselves. Now you’re ready to get started!
2. Make a Zap!
Integrations between applications handled by Zapier are called Zaps. We’ll be creating a Zap that will connect Ninja Forms with your target service. It’s super simple. Just log into your Zapier account and click “Make a Zap!
3. Set up Ninja Forms as your Trigger App
Just search Ninja Forms in the Trigger App search bar to find us:
Leave “New Form Submission” set as the Trigger and Save + Continue. You’ll be shown a series of 6 steps to complete. By following this guide, you’ve already done the first one. In a nutshell, you’re taking the Zapier webhook provided in their Step 4 and pasting it into the Zapier action of the form you want to use:
After pasting in the webhook, be sure to click Done, Publish, then Preview and Submit your form before continuing in Zapier (Steps 5 and 6). Be sure to enter data into each field before you submit, even if it’s not a required field!
When you finish this and continue in Zapier, they will run a test to confirm the connection. They’ll offer troubleshooting advice in the odd chance that it fails. After a successful test, it’s time to move on!
4. Set Up Mailjet as your Action App
Setting up your Action App is very similar to the Trigger App we setup above. Search and select Mailjet the same way we did Ninja Forms in the previous step. Once selected, you’ll be presented with a variety of options:
Just choose the option you want this form to function for, and click continue. Note that there’s even more options available if you click “show less common options” at the bottom of the list. For this demo, I’ve selected “Subscribe Contact to Mailjet List”.
You’ll now be prompted to connect Zapier to your Mailjet account. Just click connect and Zapier will open a modal for you to enter your Mailjet API Key and Secret Key. There are links in the modal that will take you directly to where they’re located in your Mailjet account.
With these entered, you’ll be prompted to test the connection between Zapier and Mailjet. That complete, hit Save + Continue.
Finally, you’ll be prompted to setup the template. Once done, you’re in the clear. You now have a Mailjet subscribe form in WordPress!Connect WordPress to Mailjet in 4 easy steps, zero code required!Click To Tweet
If you followed these 4 steps, you now have WordPress connected to Mailjet. Congratulations!
One of the most beautiful things about WordPress is being able to take the stock experience and make it truly your own. Thousands on thousands of plugins offer nearly limitless integration to products and services produced by people all over the world.
It’s a big world though, and the WordPress.org repository can’t possibly cover it all. That’s where Zapier comes into play, connecting you to apps that don’t have an official plugin yet. We’re proud that your WordPress forms in part make that connection possible.
We hope you enjoy your new connection! What integration would you like to see a tutorial for next?
