Sign-Up Form links and buttons

Once you've set up your web sign-up forms, you want to make sure your customers or prospects have easy access to them. You can make it accessible on your website, in your email signature, on your social neworks, etc. To get started, simply navigate to your Sign-Up Tools page and open the Actions menu.

Action Dropdown

Here you'll find options to not only preview and edit the forms, but also help you put them in front of your prospects.

Get to your Sign-Up Form

  1. Click Contacts.

  2. Click Sign-Up Tools.

By default, the form has general text and directs customers to join your General Interest list. However, it's a good idea to edit the form so that it matches your company colors and tone. 
  1. From the Actions menu, choose "Preview".
  2. Your sign-up form will appear in an overlay. 
Now that you know what your web sign-up form looks like, you can customize it to match your company brand or use it to get more information from your subscribers.


You can customize your form to fit your business needs at any time. Add fields, change colors, and update text. All you need to do is choose "Edit" from the Actions menu and make your changes.

Form URL

Sometimes a text link is all you need. Copy the URL for the sign-up form you want to use and post it anywhere.
  1. From the Actions menu, choose "Form URL".
  2. Click inside the field and copy the highlighted link.
  3. Click Close.

Once you have copied that URL, you can paste it anywhere, including:  

Form QR Code

You can use a QR code to direct potential subscribers to your form even when they aren't at a computer. By using their mobile devices, they'll be able to scan the code and sign-up for your lists. Just choose "Form QR Code" from the drop-down to begin creating a QR Code.

Sign-Up Button

Want to use something more graphical to capture visitor attention? You can create a button in Constant Contact, then take the HTML code we provide and add it to your website.
  1. From the Actions menu, choose "Create a Button".
  2. Customize the Button Colors, Corner Style, and Button Text and watch the Preview update with your change. Click Get Code when you're satisfied with the design.
  3. Copy the code and apply it to your website, or enter your web designer's email address and send the code directly to them.

Embed Code

  1. From the Actions menu, choose "Embed Code".
  2. Click the Preview Form button to see how the form will display. You can always go back and edit the form.
  3. Copy the code and apply it to your website, or enter your web designer's email address and send the code directly to them.
    Note: The Embeddable Sign-Up Form can accept up to 200 sign-ups per day.
