Can I have a newsletter for my site?

Unfortunately we do not currently offer a newsletter service. We do hope to introduce something in the future, but we do not currently have a firm date as to when this will be launched.

We do offer a custom form feature, which means that you can create a custom form to collect visitors information. You can then use this information, such as email addresses, to create a mailing list.

To create your own custom form:

  1. Go to your "Content" screen
  2. Go to "add/edit/delete forms" on the left hand menu.

Here you can create your own custom form for your visitors to fill in and submit to you.

For more information on setting up forms please see our guide here. Once you have collected your visitor information you could use a system such a MailChimp to send out your newsletter.

If you decide to use MailChimp you will firstly need to set up an account here. Once you have registered an account you will then need to set up a "List" with all of your contacts, which you can read more about here.

When your list is fully populated you can create a campaign, which is effectively a newsletter that you an send out to the customers in your list. For more information about this please read the guide here.

    is there a way that you could have your email submissions/sign ups go directly into mailchimp rather than having to copy and paste the information over from the email? im all for saving time and energy :)

    Hi Terri,

    If you would like the emails you collect to go straight to your Mailchimp you can always create your own Sign Up form within Mailchimp.

    Firstly you will need to create your list by selecting "Create a List" from your Mailchimp dashboard.

    Once you have done this you will then need to click the green "Design Signup Forms" in the side-column of your "Lists" page and follow these steps:

    1. In the menu, click "For Your Website"
    2. Choose "Signup Form Embed Code" from the drop-down list
    3. Choose your form style and click "Create Embed Code"
    4. Copy the code in the box
    5. Follow the steps here to add this as a HTML fragment to your Create site

    Please let me know if you have any questions, I'll do all I can to help!

    Thanks,

    Candi
