OptinMonster makes it easy to collect and store leads using our Monster Leads feature. Whether you’re starting from scratch, or securing a backup, Monster Leads is where you can store your lead data.
In this article, you’ll learn how to connect Monster Leads with OptinMonster.
Before You Start
Here are some things to know before you begin:
- As a best practice, we recommend you connect your campaigns to Monster Leads and a second Email Service Provider (like Constant Contact or MailChimp, etc) to manage and send emails to your leads.
- Monster Leads only stores your leads but is not able to send any emails.
- We recommend using tags for each campaign to help distinguish which campaign your leads subscribed through. This can help you with segmenting your leads.
