Adding a MailerLite form to your Wix website can be a great way to collect valuable information from your visitors and grow your email list. In this article, I’ll guide you through the step-by-step process of adding a MailerLite form to your Wix website, sharing personal touches and commentary along the way.
Step 1: Create a Form in MailerLite
The first step is to create a form in your MailerLite account. Log in to your MailerLite dashboard and navigate to the “Forms” section. Click on the “Create New Form” button to start creating your form.
This is where you can get creative and add personal touches to your form. Customize the design, choose the fields you want to include (such as name and email address), and even add a personalized message to encourage visitors to sign up.
Step 2: Get the Embed Code
Once you’re happy with your form design and settings, it’s time to get the embed code. In the MailerLite form editor, click on the “Embed” tab. Choose the “HTML” option and copy the provided code.
Now, let’s head over to your Wix website to add the form.
Step 3: Add the Form to Wix
Login to your Wix account and go to the editor for the website you want to add the form to. Navigate to the page where you want the form to appear.
Wix offers different ways to add custom code to your website, depending on your plan. If you have a Wix premium plan, you can use the “Embed a Site” feature to add the form. Simply drag and drop the “Embed a Site” element onto your page, and then click on it to open the settings.
Paste the MailerLite form embed code into the code box provided. Make sure to click “Apply” or “Save” to save your changes.
Step 4: Customize the Form Appearance (Optional)
By default, the MailerLite form will appear as it was designed in your MailerLite account. However, if you want to customize the form’s appearance to match the style of your Wix website, you can do so using custom CSS.
To do this, you’ll need to have some basic knowledge of CSS. You can either add the CSS code directly to your Wix website using the Wix editor, or you can use an external CSS file hosted on your own server and link it to your Wix website.
Adding a MailerLite form to your Wix website is a simple process that can have a big impact on your email marketing efforts. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can easily create and embed a MailerLite form, allowing you to collect valuable information from your website visitors and grow your email list.
