Here are a few things you may want to do before creating a link to your sign-up form:
- See Examples - Take a look at some graphic examples of what your sign-up might look like.
- Get Your Form Ready - Make sure your sign-up form is displaying the appropriate list options.
- Personalize Your Welcome Email - Anyone who subscribes to list through your form will automatically receive your Welcome Email. However, you can turn the Welcome Email off.
- After logging into Constant Contact, click Contacts > Sign-Up Tools.
- Click the chain icon by the form you want to link.
Choose from your style options:
- Share URL to form - This gives you the URL for your form and allows you to paste it anywhere.
- Create a button - Choose the color, text, and style of your sign-up button.
Copy the URL or HTML code that appears once you've chosen the URL or modified your button.
Note: The HTML code is not saved in your Constant Contact account. To refer back to this code later without having to recreate it, copy and paste the code into a TXT file and save it on your computer.
Note: If you cancel your account, make sure you remove the signup box or link from your website.
After posting your sign-up link on your website, now would be a good time to:
- Improve Your First Impression - Customize your form's appearance, fields, and list options and your Welcome Email.
- Get New Contact Alerts - Get daily or weekly emails to let you know when someone joins your list.
