How to Setup a Freebie Download to an Email Popup Signup in Mailchimp

This tutorial will show you how to setup an automated email in Mailchimp to send a PDF from an opt-in.

Mailchimp tutorial for freebie

It's so important to grow your business email subscriber list! You might have followers on your Facebook group, but FB owns them! If you have an email list, you own them and you can reach out to people directly through your list. What might you email them about? If you have a new service, offering, sale, promotion, event—you name it!—you'll want to email your subscribers who already know you. They can also forward your email on to others.

So how do you grow your email list? One way is to entice people with a Freebie. Here are some examples of what you could offer:

  • Tools and resources guide
  • How to guide
  • Diagram, visual aid, roadmap
  • Custom graphic or photo you took
  • Comparison chart

Here are two ways to setup the PDF download:

Signup Form with PDF in Thank You message (quickest method).

  1. Login to your Mailchimp account (if you don't have Mailchimp, a similar process would be done in other providers.)

  2. Go to the File Manager and Upload your PDF. Click View Details and Copy Link.

  3. Click Lists at the top and "Create List". Name your list so it applies to your download.

  4. In your new list click "Signup Forms". Choose Subscriber Popup.
    Mailchimp signup
  5. Choose the style you want and design the popup.



  6. Click on Content and go to the Sign up success message. Add the link you "copied".

  10. You will add your Triggers next. Click Design Email, fill in your Email From Name and Subject and click Next at the bottom. You will be asked to choose a layout or choose an existing campaign layout you already have. This is where you will add a button and link to a PDF. Add the Button element and change the Link to File. Upload your PDF or Link to a page that has your freebie on it.
    File link
  11. After you email is designed click Save and Continue.

  12. You can now go in and add a Follow Up email and set a time. The 2nd email trigger is a good way to follow up and check in.
    This is how the Triggers will look.

Now when someone enters their email address they'll get sent an email with the button to Download!

Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform
you're working with? I'm planning to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
