New Feature: Mailchimp

New feature: Email list sign up via Mailchimp

Email lists are proven to be one of the most effective ways to monetize your job board.  Being able to repeatedly & regularly reach an audience that has opted in to receive information and job listings from your brand is key to building trust and reach.

While you’ve always been able to embed newsletter sign up forms into the sidebar of your homepage, we wanted something that was a little more front and center, yet still elegant and integrated.  Enter our newsletter lightbox sign up form:

This form slides into view on a visitors second page view, and will re-appear after 30 days.  You can control the header and body text from your admin panel making it easy to experiment with different copy to determine what is most effective for you.

All you need is an account with Mailchimp to get started.  Once you have the account, you just grab your API key from the Accounts > API Keys menu and provide it in the API key field in your admin panel.  You can then choose which of your lists you want people signed up for, provide your copy and you’re all set.
