Overview

We have built a system that automatically finds the residential mailing addresses of your website visitors. It does this by embedded a few lines of javascript code on your website, which prompts your visitors to share their location. 

Please note: This is going to be effective only when your visitors are at their home copmputer/on wi-fi at a residential address that is within 50 meters of the lat/long.

Step 1:  Create a New Mailing List
Click the "My Mailing Lists" button in the left navigation which will bring you here:
https://dashboard.thanks.io/mailing_lists

Step 2:  Click the "Add List" button
This will prompt you to select what type of list you wish to add. Please click on the "Create Retargeting List" option.

Please note: If you choose this option from the menu, you will be prompted to give this new list a name. If you want to add the people you are capturing to a list you already have, then don't click on 'Create Retargeting List.' Just click on the name of a list you made previously in the middle of the page and proceed to step 3 below.

Step 3:  Copy the Retargeting Code Snippet
Copy the code found in the bottom left of your mailing list details page. 


You can limit the states you wish to add to your list by selecting them from the list. This will ONLY add visitors to your website found in those specific states. You also have the option to get desktop push notifications when new addresses are added to your list. Just click the red "get address alerts" if you wish to do so.

Step 4: Paste Code on Your Website
Paste the code in the footer of your website right before the </body> tag. If you need help doing this please send the code snippet to your webmaster or read some of the simple how-to's below.

Step 5: Build a Campaign to Trigger Postcards Sends
Now that your mailing list is created and addresses are being added to them, the last step is triggering a postcard to send when a new person is added to the list. We are going to link you to how to set up a campaign, please remember to use the "days after added" trigger and set it to 1 day!.
