How To Use The Zapier Infusionsoft by Keap Direct Mail Integration
Essentially, Zapier acts as the intermediary between Infusionsoft and Postalytics. Zapier is the easy to use, yet powerful integration platform that both Infusionsoft and Postalytics have written interfaces to. In order to use the Zapier Infusionsoft direct mail integration, you’ll need to do a little setup in each of the tools. Once it is setup, the Zapier Infusionsoft direct mail integration will run for as long as you have Postalytics Drip Campaign Credits available.
Step 1: Set up a “Triggered Drip” campaign in Postalytics using the Zapier Action method
Postalytics Triggered Drip Campaigns are the revolutionary new way that individual mail pieces can be automatically sent to Infusionsoft Contacts. Setting up the campaign involves creating a postcard or letter template, proofing it, and using the Postalytics Triggered Drip Campaign wizard. When you setup your Triggered Drip campaign, be sure to choose the Zapier Integration at the beginning of the process.
Follow the “Step One” instructions from the link below, and simply replace “Boingnet” with “Infusionsoft by Keap”:

From Settings, choose App Settings
Set up Custom fields for: Contact and click Go
click Add, then create a Custom Text Field called State
You will now find the field ‘State’ in all of your contact details. The finished product should look like this.

The Postalytics Send Direct Mail Piece Action

Choose Send and Track a Postcard or Letter as your Action.
Connect to your Postalytics account by entering your Username and Password.
Under Set Up Template, map the sample Contact that you have added a tag for from your Infusionsoft Account to the Postalytics campaign.
Zapier will pull from an existing Contact in your Infusionsoft database to assist with your mapping. Triggered Drip Campaign, First name, Last Name, Address, City, State and Zip are all required. It should look something like this:
Now you can Finish and Turn Your Zap On. Congrats, you are now able use the Zapier Infusionsoft direct mail integration with Postalytics!
Time to Test! Here’s how you will trigger a Direct Mail piece from within Infusionsoft
1. Go to Contacts>Choose a Contact for your test
2. Click Tag
3. Choose the Tag associated with your Zapier Postalytics campaign
The Infusionsoft Contact View
At this point Zapier has done a test and you have done a test, so your campaign should have an audience of 2. If you test more contacts, this will increase. You can check the status of the Zap by going to the Zapier dashboard and clicking ‘Task History’. You should see your test like the sample below:
Now go back to Postalytics and visit the dashboard for the new campaign. You’ll access some tools at the top of the dashboard:
Click the ‘Preview Created Mail’ and you will get a popup showing each piece of mail that has been generated. Since you are in test mode by default, this will show you all test mode postcards/letters (none of them are actually sent).
If you flip the mail to live mode, this will show live mail that has actually been sent to the printer.
You should be ready to flip the switch and go live. You’ll need to turn on your Zap in Zapier, and flip your Triggered Drip Campaign to Live Mode. You’ll be able to use the send direct mail Zapier Action for as long as you fund your Triggered Drip campaign with credits.
Note #1: You can flip between “Test” and “Live” modes as many times as necessary.
Note #2: If you need to edit your template, your campaign must be in Test Mode. We recommend pausing your Zap and your CRM triggering activity while editing your template. All must be turned back to “Live” when you’re finished editing/proofing your template.
