hi there mark with clickfunnels support
00:02
here I just want to put together this
00:04
quick video to show you how you can use
00:06
custom fields in MailChimp so what I
00:10
have here is just a test funnel that
00:12
I’ve set up and first I’m actually going
00:16
to go into my MailChimp account I’ve
00:19
already actually tested this out but I’m
00:21
going to show you in my settings so
00:24
actually let’s just go here you’re going
00:25
to go to your lists and you’re going to
00:28
either create a new list or go into your
00:30
existing list that you wish to add to
00:33
and you’re going to go to settings list
00:37
fields and merge tags and then your what
00:42
you’re going to do is click add a field
00:44
I’m just going to go ahead and add a new
00:46
field while we’re at it and add a text
00:49
field and you can do whatever you want
00:57
so you’re going to leave it as not
01:01
required just a quick note on your email
01:05
merge tags these should not change or
01:07
else the information will not pass
01:08
through the F name L name those need to
01:11
stay to the standard tags or else they
01:15
will not work so what I’m going to do
01:18
here is I’m actually going to set my own
01:20
tag for this custom field in all caps
01:23
I’m just going to do show for favorite
01:25
TV show
01:27
and then I’m going to click Save Changes
01:32
and it’ll tell me that my changes have
01:35
been saved and then I’m going to go back
01:39
into my funnel here I’m going to open up
01:42
a page in the editor and I already have
01:49
this set up for the previous test I did
01:50
before this video but I’m going to add a
01:51
new field here and it’s just going to be
01:54
an input form add the page and I’m just
02:00
going to customize this form a little
02:02
bit just a note on these forms on these
02:04
input fields right here where it says
02:05
required the only field that you should
02:07
have set to required is your email
02:09
address and it should be set to required
02:11
in order for this to function properly
02:13
so here I am on the settings for this
02:15
brand new field that I just created
02:16
we’re going to go to input type and I’m
02:19
just going to click on that and I’m
02:20
going to arrow up it’s the easiest way
02:22
to get to this custom type field here
02:24
because it’s the very last one and then
02:27
right here where it says custom type I’m
02:28
going to need to put in the exact same
02:31
tag that I use right here which is show
02:34
all capitalized so I’m going to add that
02:37
here and I’m just going to add my helper
02:41
text and everything else looks good so
02:47
I’m going to click Save I already have
02:49
my email integration set up with
02:51
MailChimp it’s going to add to that list
02:53
and I’m going to get out of here and
02:58
then I’m going to test this funnel out
03:01
so I’m going to copy this link and then
03:03
I’m going to open a private browsing
03:05
window or incognito window if you’re
03:07
using Chrome and that’s just to help
03:10
because if you’re you know if your files
03:14
are cached you have your browser as a
03:15
caching history for any test you should
03:17
always open a new window so here we are
03:20
on the on the tests page and I’m just
03:28
going to make up a name here and I use
03:32
my test email but I’m actually going to
03:34
add a separate little test identifier
03:39
here just so that it gets registered as
03:41
a separate email address in MailChimp
03:42
let me just make sure that that was not
03:45
used in MailChimp really fast so I
03:48
already have one in here no that’s my
03:52
custom fields tests so I favorite color
03:56
favorite TV show it’s too bad this one
04:01
got cancelled submit and there you have
04:07
it so I’m going to pause this video for
04:08
a quick second because it does take two
04:10
to three maybe five minutes for the
04:12
leads to get added to MailChimp
04:14
sometimes shorter but I’m gonna pause
04:16
this video real quick and then once that
04:18
lead is added into MailChimp I will show
04:20
you that screen all right so I am back I
04:24
bet you didn’t even miss me I actually
04:26
went had some lunch got a
04:27
joj and ready to rock and roll in the
04:30
meantime it looks like this new lead
04:31
showed up here and you’ll see my first
04:35
custom field which I had already set up
04:37
favorite color that one went through
04:39
favorite TV show that one went through
04:41
as well and there’s the one you just saw
04:43
me set up it was brand new before before
04:46
we even started this video so everything
04:49
is lining up and working perfectly so
04:52
you can use these custom fields to get
04:54
any information that you want so that’s
04:57
that if you have any questions please
