How to Connect OptinMonster with Bento

OptinMonster offers seamless integration with Bento email marketing service. Connecting OptinMonster to your Bento email list is very easy.

In this article, you’ll learn how to connect Bento with OptinMonster.

Connect Bento

When you create a campaign in OptinMonster that you intend to collect leads with you’ll want to integrate with one or more services to send those leads to.

To send leads to Bento, follow these steps:

  1. Step 1: Get your Bento Keys
    Before you start, you’ll need the Bento Publishable Key, Secret Key, and Site Key. You can generate and copy the keys from your Bento account using this link here.
  2. Step 2: Navigate to Bento Integration
    Go to the Integrations view in the campaign builder, search for Bento, and select it.
    Search for and select Bento in the OptinMonster campaign builder.
  3. Step 3: Enter Bento Account Name and Keys
    Enter a Bento Account Name (for your reference only) and your Bento API Key in the appropriate fields, then click the “Connect to Bento” button.
    Enter the required details for your Bento integration.
    Tip: Choose a unique Bento Account Name to help you identify this specific integration within OptinMonster. If you have multiple Bento integrations, this name will help you distinguish between them.
  4. Step 4: Configure Tags and Event Name (Optional)
    Assign any tags you want by typing them in. You can also give an Event Name, which will default to “Branding Name – Campaign Name” if left blank.
    Configure any optional details for Bento.

Add Extra Fields

This integration supports Field Mapping, so you can easily add radio buttons, phone fields, text areas, number fields, lists, and more!

Before you begin using Field Mapping with Bento, please consider the following:

  • You do not need to create custom fields in Bento. But you can manually create the custom fields in Bento before mapping them in OptinMonster.
  • The following custom fields are reserved in Bento and cannot be mapped to:
  • Custom field names should only contain letters, numbers, and underscores.

Email Automations

To send emails automatically to new leads you’ll configure email automations within your Bento account.

Testing

We strongly recommend you test the optin form before publishing your campaign to ensure it is working as you expect.

Before you begin, please be aware of the following details when testing Bento integrations:

  • Previously submitted or already subscribed leads will be overwritten with new data. For this reason, we recommend using a completely unique email address each time you test submit your campaign’s form. You can use a free tool like TempMail.io or learn how to create unlimited unique email addresses from a single Gmail account.
  • If the lead is captured in Bento but you do not receive any automated emails it indicates the integration from OptinMonster to Bento is correct, and the issue is with the automated email configuration. Bento controls email automation exclusively. If you require assistance in troubleshooting email automations we recommend reaching out to Bento support directly.

Get started testing with the Live Site Inspector tool.

Spin-a-Wheel Support

If you are configuring a Gamified spin-to-win campaign, spin-a-wheel support is automatically enabled when using our native Bento integration. The Coupon Label and Coupon Code will be passed as custom fields with each lead.

OptinMonster has transformed our business. Before integrating their optins, our clients saw a 2% conversion rate from web traffic, which is slightly above the standard for their industry. With the integration of OptinMonster’s lightbox popup, exit-intent technology, split testing, and other tools, our client’s conversion rates soared by an unprecedented 500%. They attracted substantially more customers while spending less on digital advertising. Their success propelled them to the top of their markets, outperforming national chains and other medical spas with much bigger marketing budgets. Our client’s success in their market has distinguished us in our own. We are now one of the most sought-after marketing firms in the industry of aesthetic medicine. We know that the integration of OptinMonster, more than any other tool or marketing strategy, has supported this growth and achievement.

Through OptinMonster’s exit-intent popups, we have more than doubled our sales conversion rate. Best of all is the compound effect of using OptinMonster over a long period of time—more conversions mean more customers, which means more word of mouth.
