Mailchimp is an email marketing service that enables you to build a subscriber list, create an ongoing email marketing campaign, and more. It can also be used with WordPress seamlessly, further streamlining your email marketing campaign and enabling you to communicate with your audience.
Once you enter your initial information, you’ll want to access the email address you used to confirm your account.
After you choose a plan, you’ll be able to fill out a couple of short forms. This will help Mailchimp build your account. You’ll start by providing some optional information about your business.
You can completely fill out the forms or skip some of them for now. Click on Finish when you’re done.
You need to search MC4WP: Mailchimp for WordPress, install it, and activate it on the opened page.
This is how you’ll access your lists and forms from your site.
The API key is required to connect your Website with the Mailchimp service. To find your API key, head over to MC4WP > Mailchimp within WordPress Dashboard.
Below the API Key field, click on Get your API key here.
From there, you’ll be redirected to the Mailchimp website. Select Create a Key,
and then copy the code provided.
Return to your WordPress website, paste that code into the API Key field, and hit Save Changes.
Now we need to create the sign-up form to allow the site visitors to subscribe to our Newsletter. To do that head over to MC4WP > Mailchimp within WordPress.
Here you need to build the form using the available fields, and a preview of the form will be displayed:
You can use the following HTML code to create the same form as our demo.
<input type="email" name="EMAIL" placeholder="Your email address" required />
You can display previously created forms on your website using WordPress Widgets or Companion Newsletter widgets.
Now the Subscription form will be displayed on the sidebar of Services Post:
Using the Newsletter widget for Elementor you can inset the form to the page:
