Allow links on signup form

0 Votes

I would like a live link in the "Description" field to an external website.  The purpose would be to help a subscriber look up a piece of information on another website.  It would be very helpful to us since we cannot determine that information automatically after they sign up.  To do so would require them to fill in their complete mailing address.  This gives them the ability to provide this information without having to provide the rest of it.

 

There may be other reasons to have such a link, too.  Thanks in advance to the Constant Contact personnel who are monitoring these suggestions!

Hi @RobertR94032

 

What is the information you're collecting from these contacts through the external website? Does adding the link to the thank-you page of a lead generation landing page help fit your needs?

I never received a notification of your post on 2/23.  Your notice to close the thread is the first notification I have seen!

 

The short answer it yes.  The link was to allow our subscribers to look up a piece of information for us that will help us communicate with them in the future.  

 

Please reopen the thread now that I am aware that you answered.

 

Thanks!

Hi @RobertR94032 and thank you for getting back to us. Frankie responded with some information regarding the Thank You page and linking to an external site once the form is completed. I wanted to make sure we're getting the correct flow here so we can track this properly. From what I understand, this is what you're looking to accomplish with the Lead Generation Landing Page:

 

  1. Create a landing page
  2. In the description, include a link so subscribers can review an external webpage before signing up
  3. Publish the landing page and share
  4. Have the new subscriber provide the requested information on the landing page

Apologies that we need to ask for a little more information!
