Email marketing is one of the most powerful tools in the arsenal of a marketer. SendGrid is a communication platform for transactional and marketing email that allows marketers to send email without having to maintain email servers.
You can create email campaigns, schedule them and send them out seamlessly using SendGrid. But as a marketer, the most annoying part is updating your contact list regularly with new leads and prospects that you find. And many businesses use their website to gather new leads and prospects.
A floating bar on a website is a subtle yet effective way to collect lead information. By displaying a floating bar that is always visible, even as visitors scroll down the page, businesses can encourage website visitors to provide their contact information.
Connecting the floating bar to Mailchimp ensures that all lead data is automatically collected and organised within the platform, streamlining the lead capture process and making it easier to nurture leads and convert them into customers.
The integration between the floating bar and Mailchimp can make email marketing super easy, allowing businesses to optimise their lead generation efforts and improve conversions.
Choose the most reliable and high-quality floating bar solution for SendGrid.

Step 1. Create your Serviceform account
Start by creating your free Serviceform account. After that, you can generate your Serviceform pixel in the box below. To start, type your website URL and select "START NOW".
Step 2. Install the free Floating bar on your website
If you're a tech-savvy person or have a developer in your team, it's easy to add a Serviceform Floating bar to your website using HTML.
To start, click on the website you’ve set up on your Serviceform account and select settings.
Then, copy the pixel code and paste it on the header tag section of your website.
Voila! Your website just got a lot cooler with Serviceform’s Floating bar.
Using Google Tag Manager
No worries if HTML isn't your thing. Installing the Serviceform pixel onto your website using Google Tag Manager is easy.
Simply choose the option to install via Google Tag Manager in your Serviceform account, then copy your unique pixel code.
Next, head over to your Google Tag Manager account and create a new tag. Then name your tag.
Once you've named your tag, head to the tag configuration and choose custom HTML from the drop-down menu. Then, simply paste the Serviceform pixel code you copied earlier into the code area.
Then click on ‘triggering’ and select ‘all pages.’ Then save your work and press submit. In the submission configuration screen, type ‘Adding Serviceform pixel’ into the ‘Version name’ area, and you’re all set.
Step 3. Test if your Serviceform pixel is live
You can check if your pixel is active by looking at the top right corner of your dashboard.
If you see a green circle, that means it's active and ready to go. But if you see a red circle, it means it's not active yet. No worries, just give it a quick check and get it up and running in no time.
Step 4. Connect your Floating bar with SendGrid through Zapier
Once logged in, click on the option to create a new Zap. In the next step, select “Webhooks by Zapier” under the “App & Event” section, trigger the event “Catch Hook” and click “Continue”.
Copy the webhook URL from the Floating bar's settings, then go to the preview and submit a test to see if the webhook correctly tracks your submission.
On Zapier, go to “Test & Review”, and choose the request you want to monitor.
Now at the next step, select the SendGrid app and choose the “Create or Update Contact” action event. Proceed by selecting “Continue” and then pick your Sendgrid account.
If you haven't connected your Zapier account yet, go to “Edit Accounts” and log in. Next, proceed to “Customise Contact” and fill in the necessary fields for successful integration with your SendGrid account. Once you have completed the desired information, select “Done Editing” and run the final test.
Congratulations! You're now ready to go. You can run tests, set up email notifications, and more.
Each time a customer completes a flow through the Floating bar and submits their information, that data will automatically be added to your SendGrid account.
