For managing site memberships: AMBRA UM
From the good folks at Dioscouri.com comes AMBRA User Manager, a new Joomla plugin for managing site memberships. Not only can visitors to your site create member profile (complete with avatar, social media profiles and activity points), but you can get insight into your membership base, too, with AMBRA UM’s neat reports and summary statistics. Now that AMBRA UM integrates with Campaign Monitor, it’s dead-easy to get new members to sign up for your email newsletter upon registration. What’s better, AMBRA UM automatically synchronizes new signups with a Campaign Monitor subscriber list of your choosing!
AMBRA UM is $49.99/$89.99 USD for a 3/6 month license. Find out more and download the plugin on AMBRA UM’s site.
For e-commerce: VirtueMart
If you’re using Joomla and are keen to sell your wares to the wider world, then check out VirtueMart for your shopping cart needs. Then, to get Campaign Monitor integration happening, try the Joomla/VirtueMart plugin, an add-on to VirtueMart by Lee Willis. With a little setup, you can synchronize new customers from your VirtueMart store with a Campaign Monitor subscriber list, and bam! Your email newsletters are in the bag.
The Joomla/VirtueMart plugin is free to use – for more information and to get a copy, scoot over to Lee Willis’ site.
For subscriber management: Joomailer
Although not a new integration, Joomailer by freakedout.de is getting that bit closer to ‘bailing out of beta’, as they would say. With this one-stop-shop email marketing plugin for Joomla, you can:
- Create campaign drafts from within Joomla
- Manage multiple subscriber lists
- Synchronize subscribers with your Campaign Monitor list
- Give your clients access to reports and access all of Campaign Monitor’s features via a lightbox in Joomla
- Work in tandem with a variety of other Joomla extensions, including Community Builder
Joomailer is €30 and can be downloaded via the Joomailer site.
That’s our Joomla wrap-up for now, folks! Stay tuned to this blog (and our tweets) for more Campaign Monitor friendly add-ons.
