When you create a campaign in SparkLoop a bunch of custom fields are automatically added to your ConvertKit account:
Subscriber's referral code.
Subscriber's referral link.
Whether or not the subscriber has been referred. "YES" or "NO".
Whether or not the subscriber has shared the link. "YES" or "NO".
Subscriber's total number of referrals.
Date of the last subscriber's referral.
Subscriber's most-recently-won coupon code.
The ID of the last reward won by this subscriber.
A common need for people is to add a section in their newsletter (usually at the bottom) with each subscriber's referral link and number of referrals. Here's an example from The Morning Brew:
Achieving the same result in your newsletter is trivial. You just need to use the corresponding merge tags, like this:
When you send your newsletter the merge tags will be automatically replaced with each subscriber's total number of referrals and referral link.
SparkLoop makes it easy for you to segment your subscribers and send them targeted messages, for example:
send a message to all subscribers who have been referred
send a message to subscribers who have 3 or more referrals
send a message to subscribers who haven't referred anybody in 2 months
You can set up these segments very easily using SparkLoop-generated custom fields, in particular:
In this example, we are going to create a segment of subscribers who have 3 or more referrals, but the same process can be used to create any custom segment.
Step 1: Go to your ConvertKit's dashboard > Subscribers and click on Create a segment.
Step 2. Add a filter
Step 2: Click on the Add filter button. From the dropdown, choose Custom field > RH_TOTREF > Is greater than and enter the number .
Step 3: When you've added all your filters, click on Save. ConvertKit will show all the subscribers that currently match your filers.
Ok, you've created a segment in ConvertKit. What do you do with it now?
Now you can target specific segments with targeted emails and/or automations. For example, you can:
send a message to a specific segment instead of your entire list
trigger an automation for a specific segment
