One of the questions we sometimes get from customers who are new to email marketing is ‘how do I send attachments with my newsletter?’ We’ve always had to tell them that they can’t send attachments with MailChimp. If you want to send a document or pdf to your subscribers you need to upload it to MailChimp and then link to the file in your campaign.
This is a good solution for some of our customers, but not all of them. For example, many of our customers want to offer a free guide or white paper as an incentive to opt-in to their email list or as a reward for their loyal subscribers. But, they may be selling the paper or guide to their general audience. They need a way to send unique, restricted download links just to their email subscribers.
Other customers want their file attachments to reach as many people as possible, but they also want to keep track of who’s downloading the file and who’s forwarding it on to more people. They might want to send a personal thank you to their biggest supporters, the ones who helped spread the word the most.
Digioh is an online service that makes sending digital files to your MailChimp subscribers fast, easy and secure thanks to their new MailChimp integration. In fact, over 10,000 files have already been downloaded and tracked by MailChimp subscribers using the integration.
Here is how it works:
Step 1: Go to digioh.com/mailchimp
Step 2: Create an account (you’ll only need to enter your email and a password to get signed up)
Step 3: Upload your file & select your file security level
Step 4: Paste the secure link that Digioh provides you into your MailChimp newsletter
Want to offer a free download to people who subscribe to your mailing list? Just paste your secure link into your welcome email in MailChimp and you’re good to go.
After you send out your newsletter you can log in to Digioh to monitor how many times your file has been downloaded, who downloaded it, and who forwarded your file on (if you decide to allow non-subscribers to download your file).
