Form to Exchange Email For Download

  • Answered
Hi. Do you have any suggestions regarding how I can add a contact form, below the header, where my visitor can sign up to receive a content in their email? There is a professional page I am trying to emulate, and I have an example form with just the thing I'm looking for.
Hello, Thank you for your question about setting up a contact form on your site. There are many different ways to accomplish this goal. If you use WordPress, there is a wide variety of plugins you can install to set up the form. From there, you will want to make sure you are using the SMTP settings for your server for a reliable outbound email connection. If you are not using a CMS like WordPress, and you plan on building the form yourself, you will want to familiarize yourself with PHP, Javascript, MySQL, or you may want to contact a developer to build the form with the necessary validation. For an alternative outside of your server, you can use MailChimp. It is a third party system that provides forms you can embed in your site and an interface to design an email campaign.
