Signup forms are an easy to use tool to build your email lists. With Benchmark Email, it's easy to create them and place them on your website, Facebook or Twitter. Linked are some of the FAQs for signup boxes.

How do I create a signup form for my website?

How to add a newsletter subscription form on the Facebook page?

Or, there's an app for that: How to Add the "Signup Form" App to Your Facebook Fan Page?

How to add a Email Signup Form to your Twitter Profile?

Hello Derek,

If you have access to the source code of your website and you are comfortable working with HTML, you can make the update yourself. You would paste the code into the section that corresponds with the desired location on your site.

In case your website is managed by a webmaster, you need to email the Signup Form HTML to the webmaster and instruct them where you want the Signup Form to appear on your site.

I hope this helps with your situation. Please let us know if you have further questions!

Thanks,
Michelle

The problem is: the visitor is not required to complete the "required fields" on facebook app. (except e-mail address)
They are already checked to be required, and everything has been done on my side to make these forms required, yet a visitor to the facebook page can still fill in only their e-mail address and send in the form.

Any solutions?

Also, form information coming from facebook does not receive a opt-in status... It goes directly into the "active contacts" category, the user is not sent an opt-in email.

Alex,

Thanks for the heads up. I will alert our programmers to the bug and have it fixed as soon as possible. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Andy

UPDATE: The bug has been reported. There is a fix that you could utilize immediately, if you'd like. If you're familiar with any of the many great free iframe apps, you can install one on your page and use the code from any signup form you create within your Benchmark account. It does allow for some more flexibility with appearance and will guarantee that it works the way you want it to.

HI Andy

I am new to all this.  I put the sign up form onto my FB page and I can see it as the admin.  However, it's not showing up when other users land on my page - https://www.facebook.com/AndrosYourWay - what am I missing?

Regards, Margaret

Hey is it possible to create something this in java script. I want customers to have all the written text for incentive and then the option to just type email address in right on the same page.
