How to Import Your ConvertKit Content to WordPress (And Why You Should Do It)

As a content creator, entrepreneur or online business your newsletter is one of your best assets. 

Having an audience of engaged people who want to hear more about your methods, products and services gives you an endless supply of potential clients once you have enough people on your list.

Smart marketers already know this, and many use ConvertKit to help them get the job done easily.

ConvertKit provides an easy to use email platform for creators which includes various landing pages and tools for selling things online. ConvertKits ease of use and fair pricing has made it a very popular choice for a wide range of online entrepreneurs.

But it has its limitations. The landing pages ConvertKit provides are not great and they have very limited options to make them better. 

Not only that, but most creators keep their content locked away ConverKit. They write their content once, send it out and it's never seen again.

Why not add that content to your own website so you can pick up extra traffic from search engines and show popential subscribers what your older content looks like?

This is the key to effective content creatation. Write something once and leverage that content as much as possible. 

That's why I think every creator should have a great personal website with their ConvertKit content displayed there too.

In terms of platforms for your website, there are a lot to choose from, but I recommend WordPress. Nothing comes close in terms of affordability, flexibility and scaleability.

Thats why I'm going to show you exactly how to add your ConvertKit content to WordPress.

The ConvertKit Importer Plugin

The first thing you need to do is import the ConvertKit plugin for WordPress.

Once installed, go to Settings > ConvertKit in the sidebar.

You'll see some tabs with various options in and the first thing you need to do is grab your API Key and API Secret from your ConvertKit account.

To do this, click on your name in the top right corner and then click on Settings. Then go to the Advanced menu and you'll see your API details that you can copy.

Now enter these into the ConvertKit plugin General Settings page.

Once that's done, go to the Broadcasts tab:

From here, you'll be able to import all your content from ConvertKit with the click of a button.

I'd recommend creating a new category for your newsletter content and choosing that category for ConvertKit to import into.

You can also choose to use the thumbnail on your ConvertKit broadcasts as your featured images in WordPress. Very cool.

I've followed this process to help a number of creators important their content into their personal websites to help them make the most of their content.

Here's how Parker Worth's 'previous issues' section looked once I'd imported his content for him:

I also changed Parker's homepage and built an opt-in page worthy of a fast-growing multi six figure entrepreneur. Before I did this, he was relying on one of ConvertKit's pre made layouts. As a result of the new homepage I made for him, his subscribers exploded.

Here's what he had to say about it:

Andy redesigned my opt-in page.

The result?

Going from 5 - 20 subs a day.

The results are phenomenal and put $$$ in my pocket.

My only regret is not hiring Andy sooner.
