Embed dynamic images for Mailchimp campaign
How to embed and merge personalized images created by Imagefactory.io into your Mailchimp campaign
1 - Once logged into your Mailchimp account, view your Mailchimp Audience select TOGGLE COLUMNS and tick to view the new column you created through the Imagefactory.io interface - in this example we called our column IMAGEFACTORY
2 - You will now see thumbnails of all the personalalized images within your Audience List view
3 - Within the 'build an email' campaign section of Mailchimp, we need to merge in our new images. Using a standard text box component, open up the MERGE TAG dropdown menu and select the name of the new column, in our case IMAGEFACTORY
4 - This will drop in a MERGE TAG, in our case |MMERGE7| - It is this that will drop in the correct personalized image into the correct email.
5 - Click the <> button and paste in this code
<img src="*|HERE|*" style="width:100%" /> - You'll need to edit it, pasting in your specific MERGE TAG over the top of the word 'HERE' The final text should look similar to this
<img src="*|MMERGE7|*" style="width:100%" />
6 - To check the placement of the image within the email, click Preview 1 at the top right
6 - Click the Enable live merge tag info button, this will preview the correct image. Scroll through the 'To' field to view the different images corresponding to the different email recipients.
7 - Once the rest of your campaign is designed and setup, you are ready to send.
