NEW! Manage your signup process with Pages

 

Four new pages are included free in your account.

We’ve moved our Unsubscribe, Subscribe, and Forward pages from the Account section to the Pages menu. By request, you can also now create a separate Preferences page for updating preferences. If you are currently using forms that you set up in the Account section, they will continue working until you’re ready to switch. The “classic” pages will be discontinued at the end of 2021. We will give you plenty of time to prepare.

 

Customize → Publish → Set as Default → Update your emails

  • To get started, customize and publish your pages.
  • Then, click the Use as Default button when you’re ready to completely switch over. Once selected, any new emails created from a WordFly starter email will point to the new pages. In Modern Editor, it will also switch the Add Link UI to point to your new pages.
  • Update any existing custom starter emails with the new link. If you duplicate old emails to create new ones, you will need to update the link in the new one.

The new Preferences page

  • Preferences can now be managed on a separate page. The Update Preferences section is no longer part of the Unsubscribe page. This allows you to create two separate links in your email footers: Update Preferences and Unsubscribe.
  • You can also now have multiple preferences sections on a single page. This allows to group preferences into different blocks, like “What would you like to hear about?” and “How often would you like to hear from us?” Drag over a new Preferences block when you want a new grouping.
  • We also launched a new place to create preferences for your new forms. Look for it in Subscribers > Preferences. Any preferences you create here can be added to your Preference or Subscribe forms. You can add a description for each preference right here, too, when needed.


Complete these steps for your preferences page

1. Set up new preferences in Subscribers > Preferences, if needed
2. In the form, click on the Preferences block
3. Click the preferences you would like to add to the form. Click to edit, if needed.
4. Upload your logo. Customize your content and colors.
5. Save and Publish

 

 

Optional: Add a button that links to the Unsubscribe form

4. Select your Primary Unsubscribe page from the grid. Leave the “Associate page responses with subscribers” box selected.
5. Save and publish your page


How to use your preferences page

Preferences are linked to a specific subscriber, so you must link to the page from an email campaign. The link must contain the SubscriberID code. This is the code that will also allow the subscriber’s email address to display in the “Your email address” section.

1. On Preferences Settings tab, click Publish to push your pages live to the web
2. In your email, add the text “Update Preferences” to your footer
3. Highlight the text, then click the Link icon

  • You now have more control over preferences on your Subscribe forms. If you want to collect preferences at signup, drag over a Preferences block. You can even have multiple preference blocks for more flexibility, for example adding an additional section to only collect info about frequency preferences.
  • Like before, you can add as many Text Fields to collect more info about your subscribers. Just drag over a Text Field block and map it to one of your existing data fields.
  • The Subscribe form now includes a required ReCAPTCHA field as an additional layer of protection against signups from bots.
  • You can also create a pop-up signup form that you can include on your website. Just click the Lightbox tab, customize, and copy the code.
