Using Scarcity Samurai and Optimize Press (1.x) with MailChimp and GetResponse

Using Scarcity Samurai and Optimize Press (1.x) with MailChimp and GetResponse

 

There are a few extra manual steps needed to make MailChimp or GetResponse work with Scarcity Samurai while using the Optimize Press theme.

Note - These changes were made Optimize Press version 1.x, so the instruction may change again when Optimize Press version 2 is released.

Here they are:

1. First thing is to make sure that you're using a 'Squeeze' template, it doesn't matter which one you choose, just make sure it's a squeeze page.

 

(This step is the same for MailChimp or GetResponse at this stage)

2. After you've selected your Squeeze page, scroll down to the 'Opt-in/Squeeze Form Options, and head to the 'Autoresonder Code' section.

Then paste your HTML form code into the Autoresponder Code box like in this image.

(This step is only for MailChimp, if you want instructions for GetResponse you can skip this step)

 

3. When your code has been pasted into this box, look for the emails 'name' - which is "EMAIL" in most scenarios - and then paste that name into the Email box (just like in the picture). This will force OptimizePress to include the EMAIL field in the rendered HTML. 

 

 

Note - If your email 'name' isn't "EMAIL", like in the picture, paste whatever it's called into the 'Email' box below the autoresponder box to make your MailChimp form work with Scarcity Samurai.

4. When you paste your GetResponse code into the Autoresponder box, you need to locate the 'token' input, then take note of the tokens 'name' (which is custom_token in this picture), and add a little code here to get GetResponse working with Scarcity Samurai.

 

In this scenario I had to add in -- id="custom_token" -- after "<input" and before the ">", just like in the picture.

 

Note - Your token name might not be named "custom_token" like in this picture, so take note of what it's called because you'll need to name the 'id' the same thing, and you'll also need the name for the next step.

(This step is only for GetResponse, if you want instructions for MailChimp look at the above step - if you want instructions for SendPepper or OfficeAutoPilot you can skip to the next step)


5. After you've located the 'custom_token' part of the Autoresponder code, you'll need to scroll down a little more and select the 'Show extra input field options', and then enter "custom_token" into the 'Field 1 Input ID' - just like in the picture.

 

This will force OptimizePress to include the token field in the rendered HTML. Scarcity Samurai will hide it when the page renders.

 

Note - If your token 'name' isn't "custom_token", like in the picture above, paste whatever it's called into the 'Field 1 Input Box' below the auto-responder box to make your GetResponse form work with Scarcity Samurai.

Finally - after those manual steps are complete, don't forget to publish that page, and you're all done!
