Tutorial Part 2: Embed an Opt-in Form in your Blog

Opt-in forms are essential if you want to take blogging seriously.

And since publishing my showcase of beautiful opt-in forms, many of you have asked me how to create a custom form for your own blogs.

So today is step 2 of the tutorial I made just for you.

Tutorial Syllabus

  1. In Part 1, we created an opt-in form using MailChimp.*
  2. In Part 2, we now embed that form into our blogs.
  3. In Part 3, we’ll design our forms, then
  4. In Part 4, we’re going to style our embedded forms using CSS.

Please note that the MailChimp link above is a referral link, which means if you sign up using that link, if and when you become a paying customer, I will receive a small commission. I would like you to know however that I am not referring MailChimp because of this, I am referring them explicitly for the reasons stated here and nothing more.

UPDATE: I should mention that Parts 2-4 will still apply REGARDLESS OF THE EMAIL SERVICE you decide to use. So if you’re already using one and you’re happy with it, don’t switch over just for this tutorial!
