If you are looking for a way to make your ActiveCampaign email newsletters stand out and see your open rates increase, try including secure download links to great content such as exclusive guides, songs, and more.  By connecting Digioh to your ActiveCampaign account, adding downloadable content to your emails is easy and – even better – you can protect your files to make sure only people who sign up for your list can receive it!  Check out these steps below to get started.

Step 1: Create a Digioh account and connect it to ActiveCampaign

Sign up to Digioh for free, and connect your ActiveCampaign account.  Once your account is connected, Add a File.

Connect ActiveCampaign & Digioh

Step 2: Upload your file and set the security level

Use the red Select a File button to choose the file you want to upload.  Under Security Options you’ll be able to set the security level for the file.  The security level tells Digioh what to do when someone who is not on your list tries to access your file.

With List Grower Security, if a person is not already on your list, it will ask them to sign up in order to download the file.
With Membership Security, only those already subscribed to your list are allowed access.

Save your changes and move to the next page.  Here you’ll be given the download link to copy and paste into your ActiveCampaign newsletter. Notice the ActiveCampaign email merge field is included at the end of the link.  This allows Digioh to track which subscribers are most engaged and are downloading your files.

Step 4: Paste your Digioh download link in your ActiveCampaign newsletter

In ActiveCampaign, compose your email newsletter and create a hyperlink using your Digioh download link.  To do this, just highlight the words you want to be linked, then click on the link icon.  In the popup, you can paste your Digioh download link.  You can also link to images, such as a Download “button.”

Remember, you can use free downloads to reward your existing subscribers, to incentivize new subscribers, or both. If you are interested in learning how to incentivize sign ups to your list, check out our How To article on sending a file right after someone subscribes to your list.
