    *The SharpSpring Account Name can be anything that helps you identify the specific integration within OptinMonster. It’s possible to add more than one SharpSpring integration to your account and this is an easy way to differentiate between them when assigning integrations to individual campaigns.

Email Automations

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

The following guides from SharpSpring may be helpful to get started:


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 SharpSpring integrations:

  • Previously submitted or already subscribed leads may be treated differently by SharpSpring than new leads. 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 or learn how to create an unlimited number of unique email addresses from a single Gmail account.
  • If the lead is captured in SharpSpring but you do not receive any automated emails it indicates the integration from OptinMonster to SharpSpring is correct, and the issue is with the automated email configuration. SharpSpring controls email automation exclusively. If you require assistance in troubleshooting email automations we recommend reaching out to SharpSpring support directly.

Get started testing with the Live Site Inspector tool.
