What's ConvertKit and how do I use it?

ConvertKit is email automation software that's incredibly easy-to-use. You can use it to set up newsletters, drip email marketing campaigns, and more.

To sync your Podia account with ConvertKit, follow the simple steps below:

Step 1: Locate your ConvertKit API

First, go to the Account Info page in your ConvertKit account.

Step 2: Add your ConvertKit API on Podia

After you've copied your "API Key" to your clipboard, go to your Integrations page under Settings on Podia and enable the Convertkit integration:

Now, add both Convertkit API and Secret Keys and click Connect.

Step 3: Create a tag in ConvertKit (or use a pre-existing tag)

In ConvertKit, go to your Subscribers list. On the right-hand side you'll see a list of Tags you've set up.

You can either click "Create a tag" or use an existing tag you've already created.

To get the ConvertKit ID Tag, click on the name of the Tag, then copy the number directly after "subscribable_ids=" to paste into Podia in the next step.

Step 4: Add your ConvertKit Tag to Podia

This process is very similar for online courses, digital downloads, and landing pages, but there are some slight nuances, which we walk you through below.

If you get stuck or have questions, you can always email us or click the blue chat icon.

Adding your ConvertKit Tag to your online course, digital download, or membership plan

Once you're logged into Podia, click on Products at the top of the navigation. Assuming you already have a product (online course or digital download, etc), click on the "Edit" icon:

Now that you're viewing your Product, click on the "Details" tab at the top and scroll down to select your ConvertKit tag ID:

For memberships: you will want to click the Community tab, navigate to the plan you want to connect to, and scroll down to find the same box to add the ConvertKit tag 😃

Step 5: You're all set and can now create Automations and other things

That's all there is to it! Now when people sign up for your products or landing pages, they will also appear in your ConvertKit account. 

You can, however, set up Automations in ConvertKit to add people to Sequences.

Here's an example:

If you have any questions at all, send us an email at hello@podia.com or click the blue icon below to chat. 😋
