Your free BEE account can integrate with multiple different ESP connectors, including Active Campaign. Here’s how to connect your accounts so you can make newsletter templates in Active Campaign:
You can connect your BEE account with Active Campaign via the "Settings" tab on your BEE dashboard. Once that process is complete, you’ll be able to push over one email template at a time whenever you finish editing a message with the BEE editor.
The first thing you’ll need to do is retrieve your API key from your Active Campaign account. Within Active Campaign, click "Settings" and "Developer". You’ll see your API link and key on the next page.
Once you have that page pulled up, open your BEE dashboard in another tab and go to "Settings" and "Connectors". Select Active Campaign and click its purple "Connect" button. Toggle back to Active Campaign to copy your API link and then the API key. Then head back to BEE to paste them each into the pop-up and complete the login process. Now your accounts are connected and you can send email templates to your Active Campaign account.
Open a BEE template of your choice and customize it. When you’re done, click the "Export" button found on the Message Details page. Choose "Push to a sending system" and then "Active Campaign". Once you click "Create", that email template will immediately be pushed over to Active Campaign.
To send a past newsletter template to Active Campaign, open the project in BEE and click "Edit message", then "Export". The process works the same way from there.
With the help of the BEE editor, you can create dazzling Active Campaign templates to represent your brand.
