Here’s how you can give away an eBook or report to your email list subscribers by allowing for file download on email opt-in for your Squarespace website!
It’s not that difficult at all. There are actually 3 methods to accomplish this.
- Set up MailChimp to send an automatic email to subscribers (requires modifying the Welcome email, or going with a paid subscription plan on Mailchimp)
- Set up a landing page for the giveaway, and then redirect people here after an opt-in.
- Give people access to the file IMMEDIATELY after they opt-in.
For methods 2 and 3, here are the instructions.
Step 1 – Adding a Form
Insert a FORM block onto any page, ideally, you should ask for just email, but you can also ask for visitors to provide first/last name.
Step 2 – Setting up the Redirect
Go to the ADVANCED section of the form and look for the section labelled “POST-SUBMIT REDIRECT”.
