All about signup forms
Email signup forms (also known as "web forms"), are subscription boxes you can add to your site, blog, or social page to collect new email subscribers. All signups collected through your email signup form get added directly into your GoDaddy Email Marketing Subscribers.
Why use email Signup Forms?
Signup Forms build high value email lists. When you create a registration option that's specific, you know signups are definitely interested in receiving your content, via email! The best place to add an email signup form is somewhere prominent on your website, like your sidebar.
If you want to include purchasing customers in your email list, it's best practice to include a separate email signup option during your purchase process. That way you can be sure that your signups are actively opting in.
What information to collect with a Signup Form?
Often, just an email address works. Keep it simple. If you don't need additional details for your email marketing, don't include it in the form. The most common fields to include in a form are name and email.
