Send Breakdance Builder Forms to Drip

Boost your email campaigns by sending Breakdance forms straight to your Drip app. I’ll show you how this can be easily done in this guide!
Updated November 7, 2023

Drip stands out as a powerful email marketing tool tailored for personalization. Integrate it with Breakdance to boost your marketing strategies with minimal efforts. 

Sending Breakdance forms to Drip can have a lot of benefits. With an updated contact list, you can:

  • effortlessly create win-back campaigns
  • dispatch timely sales drip campaigns
  • counteract cart abandonment by sending users that they forgot to check out 

In this article, I'll guide you on leveraging both platforms to elevate your email strategies.

Create a Form in Breakdance

Open your WordPress dashboard and create a new page. Click ‘Edit in Breakdance.’

Create a new section and add a ‘Form Builder.’ Style the form to your liking such as adjusting the layout, and background color. 

Add all the fields you want to include. In this example, we’ll add three fields for the first name, last name, and email address.
