05002 – Working with the different Form Types

There are two ways you can display an optin form on your pages. The first one is an inline form and the other one is a pop up form. The inline form is on the page and visitors will see it on the page. The pop up for is on a pop up that will appear when visitor clicks on the button.

 

1. Inline Form

The Inline Form type embeds the autoresponder form in the Optin page itself and the optin fields are immediately visible to users. You can use the Inline Form type to your page by adding an Optin Form block.

Editing Form Format

To edit the format of the Inline form, click on the Optin Form block in the Preview pane. The Block settings will open in the left-sidebar menu.

Note: Name and email address are forwarded to email systems while phone number is optional (depends on email system). Some email systems API (integrations support phone number capture but some not)

Phone number is not added for:
Convertkit – https://developers.convertkit.com
Aweber – https://api.aweber.com

Works on the ff:

Active Campaign
Ontraport
Drip
Mailchimp

Once done making the changes, click on SAVE CHANGES.

General Form Settings

  • Once done with your Optin Form block, go to Form Settings, and select how you want to send the details to your email system. Remember you can go fast by integrating your email system and simply adding a tag. Alternatively if your email system is not one of the systems that we deeply integrate with then you can always add a web form code from your system.
  • (Optional) Select the relevant additional settings for your form from the left-sidebar menu e.g. Register to Online Course, Register to Viral Share, Register to Evergreen Launch etc.
  • Under Redirect to this page on optin, select the page you want users to reach once they opt-in.
  • Once done, click on SAVE CHANGES.
