With Wistia’s Turnstile feature, your video viewers can now enter their email address directly into your video player, and automatically be added to the Drip campaign of your choosing. No manual importing or exporting—just automated leads straight from your video.

What you will need

  • Wistia project with an uploaded video.
  • campaign created in your Drip account.

The majority of this setup will be performed in your Wistia account. For further context, this integration will be using the Wistia Turnstile feature which you will enable in the second section of the article.

Managing Campaign double opt-in

Wistia allows you to manage the Campaign double opt-in setting directly from the UI:

This setting will override the double opt-in setting you might have configured in your Drip account.
