If you have a Gmail address, you can add it to your Systeme.io account and use it to send out emails and email campaigns.
For even more functionality, you can connect the two platforms together using a third-party software app called Zapier.
- Use your Gmail address to send out emails from Systeme.io
- Integrate Systeme.io with Gmail to receive updates to your inbox
- You can integrate Systeme.io with Gmail by using Zapier
Why Integrate Systeme.io with Gmail?
Gmail is the world’s most popular email provider. Therefore, many Systeme.io subscribers will also use Gmail for business use.
By integrating Systeme.io with Gmail, you can continue using your Gmail account to send out emails and email campaigns to your contacts.
You can even go one step further and use Zapier with Gmail and Systeme.io to automate your email admin tasks. For example, the integration can trigger an email to be automatically sent from your Gmail account whenever a sale is made, if someone subscribes to a webinar, or if someone opts into your mailing list.
This allows you to keep all your communication methods more streamlined and avoids the hassle of having to use the two systems separately.
How to Integrate Systeme.io with Gmail (Step by Step)
You can use your Gmail address to send out emails from Systeme.io. What this means is that the recipients of your emails will see your Gmail address in the From box.
Step 1: Sign in to your Systeme.io account and select Mailing Settings from the left-hand menu. Then, click on the text “click here to confirm your sender email address.”
Step 2: A pop-up will appear. Add your Gmail address here and click on Save. You will be taken back to the main screen. In order for your Gmail address to appear, you must also click “Save” in the top-right corner of the screen. It may also be necessary to refresh the page after saving.
Step 3: Your Gmail address will now appear listed on the screen. However, you will note that the status of the email says Pending.
Step 4: Head to your Gmail inbox. You will have an email from Systeme.io asking you to confirm your Gmail address. Click on the link provided and then hit Confirm.
Step 5: Go back to your Systeme.io account and refresh the page. The status should now change to Verified. You’re now good to go and can start sending out emails from Systeme.io, and your Gmail address will be automatically applied as the sender’s address.
If you have multiple Gmail addresses, you can also add them by repeating the steps above and then choosing which address you want to use whenever you send out an email.
This will result in your recipients never seeing your emails and, in the worst cases, resulting in your Gmail address being blocked. To avoid this problem, you can purchase a Gmail business address or use a professional email address from a different provider.
How to Integrate Systeme.io with Gmail Using Zapier (Step by Step)
If you want to have enhanced functionality and automation capabilities, you can use Zapier to integrate Gmail with Systeme.io.
Zapier has free sign up and is free to use (indeed, you can use your Gmail account for this). However, the free plan is limited, so if your Systeme.io products see a lot of activity, it may be necessary to upgrade and pay for a more comprehensive Zapier plan.
Here’s how to connect the two platforms so that you can start using Gmail with Systeme.io.
Step 1: From your Zapier account dashboard, select My Apps from the left-hand menu. Use the search box to find Systeme.io, and when it appears, select Connect.
Step 2: A pop-up will appear, asking you to log into your Systeme.io account. Do this and then select Allow. This completes the connection.
Step 3: Next, follow the exact same steps to connect your Gmail account. Even if you used a Gmail address to sign up for Zapier, you still need to connect it in the same way you did for Systeme.io.
When you have done this, your My Apps tab will have both the Systeme.io and Gmail apps listed.
Step 4: To start using the two apps with each other, you must now select the orange Create Zap button from the top-left corner of the screen.
Step 5: Now, decide which trigger you want to use for your zap. A Trigger is essentially an action that starts the zap. For example, Systeme.io triggers include a new sale or new opt-in. You can select a trigger for Systeme.io or Gmail, depending on your needs.
Zapier will guide you through setting this up, so follow the steps until completion. Zapier will also perform a test to ensure the trigger works.
Step 6: Now that you have set your trigger up, you need to decide what type of action happens afterward. Zapier guides you through the action-setting process here too. So if you set a trigger from Systeme.io, the action will take place in Gmail and vice versa.
For example, if you set the trigger to “new sale,” the resulting action could be that a new email is sent to the customer as soon as the purchase is complete. In this case, Zapier instructs you to write the email and save it. Then, every time a new sale is triggered, the email will automatically be sent from Gmail.
Depending on which action you choose, Zapier will provide appropriate instructions to complete the setup.
