How To Sign up A Free MailerLite Account
Click on Sign up free button
You will be asked a few questions on the registration page before setting up a free account.
Even if you’re in the approval process after Sign up, users can set everything up while their accounts are approved.
How To Use MailerLite To Set Up Landing Page
Now that you have completed your registration. The very first thing you need to do is navigating to “Sites/ Create your first landing page.”
Assign the page’s name then select the subscriber group.
(default subscriber group is automatically created for you. )
You will now be presented with a set of nicely designed templates for you to choose from.
Using the drop-down list, you can limit the templates to the field your product/service applies to and will be suitable for your sales funnel.
Modify the template according to your design; you can add or remove as many elements as you like.
Remember that simple forms are usually more persuasive to the user. Typically, the best forms are not too complicated.
Configure the landing page signup form
The next thing you need is a signup form. That is an element to get people to subscribe to your email list.
Click on the popup form element and drag the element tab to the right place of the form.
You can now change the default text to give your form a title, subtitle, and button text. According to your preferences, you can change the color and style of the submission button.
By default, the signup form comes with just one field, ’email.’ If you prefer, you can add more form fields, e.g., ‘name’ or ‘phone number.’
Add an image to your form. It should be relevant to your product/service and convincing the user to register.
Thank You Page
The next step is Thank You page that you will create in MailerLite.
The thank-you page will be where all clients will be directed to after entering the information in the popup form.
If you promised the user any digital product, the form is where you put your download link.
In case you want to present a visual material (for example, your product webinar), place a video component on the form.
Both elements you can find in the panel, right of the form.
If you go with a video option, the excellent choice is Vimeo software.
