5 Cool Things You Can Do With The New Web Form Generator
By Justin Premick November 16, 2009
You want to quickly and easily create great-looking signup forms. And you want to do it without having to know HTML.
Makes sense to us. So the new Web Form Generator – coming out soon – aims to help you do exactly that.
Here are just a few ways you’ll be able to customize the look of your forms to build your list faster and create a better new subscriber experience.
Put Your Form Labels Above, Beside or Inside Fields
Want to try putting the “Name” and “Email” labels above the boxes that subscribers fill out, instead of beside them?
Now you can choose how you want your labels aligned:
You can even put them inside the boxes if you want to – when subscribers click inside the field, we’ll remove the label so they can type their name/email!
Add Color to Your Submit Buttons And Position Them Where You Want
Want your form’s submit button to stand out and beg to be clicked? You got it.
Think that changing the colors and/or the location of it will help you get more conversions? Now you can find out.
Customize the look of your submit button – you can even add gradients to it to make it slicker:
and you can place it where you think it’ll get clicked the most – left, center or right:
If you want to get scientific about it, split test the different colors or positions to see what gets you the most new subscribers!
Show Subscribers How to Confirm With Dynamic Thank You Pages
Want to use video on your thank you pages to increase confirmed opt-ins, but don’t have the time or equipment to make it happen?
Use our video thank you pages to give each new subscriber precise instructions on how to confirm.
We’ll even show them exactly what your confirm email looks like in their specific email program (Gmail, AOL, Yahoo, Hotmail, Outlook, Mac Mail, etc).
Collect Addresses With Smart Fields
Need to collect more than just name and email address? How about a postal address?
Now you can easily ask for an address in your forms:
You can then use that data to search and segment your list in AWeber (example: send an email to all of your subscribers in Pennsylvania), or export it so you can build relationships with your subscribers by postal mail.
It reaffirms your commitment to delivering email to people who want to get it from you and shows people how easy it is to unsubscribe if they choose to do so.
That’s Not All
There are tons of ways to make your signup forms cooler and more appealing to subscribers (templates, anyone?). These are just a few examples.
What else can you do? You’ll have to try the new Web Form Generator and find out for yourself… 😉
