Mailchimp for LinkedIn Lead Gen forms lets you sync contacts you’ve collected with a LinkedIn Lead Gen form with one of your Mailchimp audiences. A Lead Gen form is a LinkedIn feature that pre-fills user information when they click a call to action in an ad. With this integration, you can transfer the information you’ve collected from users on LinkedIn to a Mailchimp audience where you can further communicate with them.
In this article, you’ll learn how to connect and disconnect Mailchimp for LinkedIn Lead Gen forms.
Before you start
- This integration requires a LinkedIn account and at least one Lead Gen form connected with the account.
How it works
This integration syncs contacts acquired from a LinkedIn Lead Gen form with the Mailchimp audience of your choosing. Sync Groups include classifications within audiences for predefined fields and custom questions, hidden fields, and consent fields from the lead generation form.
