Introducing CSV Export for Targeting Rules


Today, we’re excited to introduce the ability to export any emails captured through AddThis Audience Targeting tools as a .CSV. Since we launched Audience Targeting in December of last year, we’ve repeatedly been asked to add specific email platform integrations. So in an effort to make our Audience Targeting tools as effective as possible for all users, you can now create email lists through the Audience Targeting rule creator, house your collected email addresses in this list, and then export it as a CSV and import it into any email service you currently use.

Below is an overview of the new functionality and how you can start using it immediately.

Creating your Audience Targeting rules hasn’t changed, but the option to “collect email” now has a small AddThis logo that you can choose to manage your lists.


When you click on the plus sign, you will see the following options:

  • Select a list
  • My Contacts – the default email list you can use across multiple Audience Targeting rules to collect email subscriptions
  • Create a new list – a new list you can create for each specific campaign and re-use across Audience Targeting rule

When you have created a new list, this will also be among the options in the drop down and you can choose that list if you want to add more emails to that specific campaign.


Once you’ve saved your new Audience Targeting rule, you’ll see the third option on your tabs called “Manage Emails”. When you click on this tab, you will see all your lists, the number of emails you have collected, the option to download the .CSV file and the ability to create new lists here. Once you have exported your .CSV file you can import it into any email platform you use!

We’re excited to continue enhancing our tools to make them easier to use and more impactful for your business. Let us know how you’re using our Audience Targeting tools and what else you’d love to see!
