Merge Tags Set Up
There are 6 extra field variables DojoMojo sends through API to MailChimp.
- First Name
- Last Name
- Source Brand
- Campaign Name
- Zip Code
Email, First Name and Last Name are set up by default by MailChimp, however you must uncheck the "required" box for everything except email. Go to [your mailchimp list] / settings / List fields and *|MERGE|* tags and make sure the required box for First Name and Last Name is unchecked.
If you want the other fields which are optional in a DojoMojo campaign, you need to set these up as custom fields in your Mailchimp account.
- Navigate to [your mailchimp list] / settings / List fields and *|MERGE|* tags
- Click on Add A Field and select text
- Next add the Field Label that makes sense to you
- In the Tag area to the right which defaults to MERGE123 add in the correct labels as follows
- Source = SOURCE
- Zip Code = ZIPCODE
- Campaign Name = CAMPAIGN
- Medium = MEDIUM
Save and test to make sure the fields are being populated by DojoMojo. Your list should look something like this:
We include the following merge variables with each export as they are available (if the data isn't there the field will be blank). You can set up MailChimp to segment your groups based on the following variables:
- SOURCE (the brand name that brought in the email)
