To create a website visitor signup box when using Constant Contact follow the steps below.
Note: This is an advanced topic and requires previous HTML knowledge.
Log into Constant Contact.
If you don’t have an account you can try if free for 60 days. Click here
Go to My Settings > Site Visitor Signup.
Click the "Start Wizard to generate HTML code" link under Step 1.
Select a form, button, or text link style. To view all of your style options at once, click the "Preview All Styles" link.
Customize the text, font, and colors to match your website. If applicable, you can select from image options as well. Please note that the options available to you depend on which signup box style you select in the previous step.
Email the HTML code to yourself and save for future reference.
To add the site signup box to your website, copy and paste the code into your page source and upload it to the web.
If you are NOT familiar with HTML or do not have access to your web domain, forward the signup box code to your Webmaster and ask him or her to add the code for you. Or call Sorrell Associates & Newsletterville.com for help.
The site visitor signup box is designed specifically for websites and not for email communications. As a result of this, the HTML code you generate does not work in the Advanced Editor.
If you paste it into the email creation wizard, it will not appear as it did when previewed in the signup box wizard.
Email addresses entered into the signup box must be in email@example.com format and no more than 80 characters. Special characters such as ( ) < > [ ] , ; : \ etc. are generally not allowed. Similarly, non-ASCII characters such as € † ‡ ™ etc. are prohibited. This is the only level of verification for invalid email addresses currently in place.
