Add a signup form to your campaign

 

How to Add Your Form to All Your Emails

Keep in mind that embedding the full form HTML code in your Email Marketing campaigns is not recommended. It can cause unwelcome display and delivery issues. Instead, use the default signup form option instead. This will add a Signup button to the footer of all your mailings.

How to Add Your Form to Your Email Using Shortcodes

Email Marketing links to your default form wherever you use the macro [[subscribe]] in your email campaign. To add an extra clickable link in the campaign body, just copy the line below and paste it into any text module in your email:

[Subscribe here!]([[subscribe]])

signup form link in edit mode

The link will display like this:

The subscribe link final display

Don’t forget to send a test to yourself, to check your work. Feel free to edit the link display text used in the square brackets. It’s the visible text your readers will see in the final email.

What is a campaign module?

Modules are the building blocks of your email campaigns. They contain the text, images, buttons, styles, and layouts that make up your campaigns.

You can add as many modules as you like, change the type (different layouts of text and images), and rearrange them to suit your design needs.

Modules are located at the bottom of a campaign that’s open in Edit mode.
