How to Connect Mighty Networks and ConvertKit

To use this integration, you will need a ConvertKit account on the Creator or Creator Pro plan.

When you connect ConvertKit to your Mighty Network, four things will happen:

  1. Your Mighty Network member information will be synced to your ConvertKit account.
  2. All Mighty Network members will get tagged with “Your Network Name” and “Mighty Networks Integration".
  3. If a member leaves, is banned or deleted from your Mighty Network, the "Mighty Networks Integration" tag will be removed.
  4. If a member changes their email address or name then it will be updated in ConvertKit. 
  5. If a member has unsubscribed from marketing emails, their information will not migrate over.

You can also disconnect your ConvertKit account on this menu. Selecting to disconnect will show a confirmation message

How Does Privacy Work With the Content Added

If a member or prospective member doesn’t have access to the Space that the content lives in (ie: an Event in a Space that is private, secret or plan access) then they will see a landing page for the Space.

For a private Space, they will see a way to request access.

For a Secret Space, they will see the landing page for the Space with no way to join.

For an Internal Plan or a plan access Space:

  • Logged in members will be taken to the Plan landing page where they can make a purchase
  • Logged out members or prospective members will be shown the Plan landing page, where they can create an account or sign in

For an External Plan or a plan access Network:

  • Logged in members see a toast message indicating that they already have access to this Plan
  • Logged out members/prospective members will be shown the Plan landing page. Prospective members can subscribe or current members can sign in (in the upper right corner).

Disconnecting ConvertKit from Mighty Networks
