I’m a Klaviyo paid subscriber and have 1 list, the default “Newsletter” list. This is connected to Shopify and auto syncs subscribers who opt-in either via Shopify at checkout or via the Shopify sign-up forms. In addition, I have a Klaviyo sign-up form that also populates the list.
In addition to this we have IRL physical events that people will register for external to Shopify. These event attendees may already exist in our main “Newsletter” list from Shopify, attending a prior IRL event, or otherwise wanting to subscribe.
I want to be able to subscribe the event attendees to the “newsletter” list, however, I want to add a tag that specifies which event(s) or which years they’ve been part of.
The issue I’m facing is this:
- User firstname.lastname@example.org attends NYC2021 IRL event and consents to subscribing to email.
- We import email@example.com and add a tag of NYC2021
- so far, so good.
- User firstname.lastname@example.org attends NYC2022 IRL event and checks that they consent to subscribing to email once again.
- We import the attendees to Klaviyo for the NYC2022 event and unfortunately the “Tag” for email@example.com is now NYC2022, the NYC2021 entry is gone.
I know I could just simply create new lists for each event. However, this could quickly cause my subscriber count to grow artificially. For example, if firstname.lastname@example.org attends both NYC2021 and NYC2022 they would then be on two lists, if they also purchase something from Shopify and opt-in they’ll be on the newsletter list.
Ideally I’d like everyone to be on one list (“Newsletter”) and then add tags for each event they attend and then I can create segments for these if necessary.
Please advise, thanks!
