I use a Squarespace email form + MailChimp to capture key data about those who sign-up to my mailing list. To take a step back, my website is an architecture publication and on the form there is a dropdown that has 'What best describes you?' with several options including; architect, builder, student, architecture lover, etc. This data helps me when I communicate with architects and potential advertisers as it tells me who my audience is.
My email list is small so I've been manually tagging each contact, but I am hoping the list will grow so large that it no longer becomes viable to tag each one myself, so I'm wondering if it's possible to automate this process through MailChimp. Has anyone done something similar? Below is kind of the flow I hope for;
Land on page > fill out form with email, first and last name > select 'architect' from dropdown menu > signs up to mailing list > 'architect' tag automatically applied
Is this possible?
For reference, my website is www.thedesignemotive.com, and the main forms are like the one underneath the video here; https://thedesignemotive.com/architecture-design/an-architects-home/jerry-wolveridge-wolveridge-architects
