This week's question is:
Can we include a sign-up form on our website for our clients/users to sign-up to our mailing list/newsletter/etc?
Yes. Whenever you create or upload a new list, the system automatically generates a sign-up form for you to use. To get the sign-up form code, go to the Contact Lists menu and click on the View and Edit Lists link. This will access the list manager where you can click on the name of the mailing list you wish to have subscribers added to. Once the list is selected, click on the Web Form tab to get the sign-up form code. Alternatively, you can also access this information through the Generate menu by choosing Forms. Select the fields you wish to include as part of the form and copy and paste this code onto your website so users can sign up to your list. Please note that that the form is a closed-loop opt-in form, which means that in order for the address to be added to your list, the recipient must reply to an email that is sent to them confirming that they wish to be added to your list. Once the person replies to the confirmation email, they are added to your list. This is done to ensure that only legitimate sign-ups are added to your mailing list through the web form.
