What is an opt-in subscription form?

An opt-in subscription form is a way to web users to pursue their interests in any product or service. Opt-in forms are normally used as an email communication tool to build mailing lists. Opt-in forms are normally presented to the customers in various ways like in pop-up forms on the inner pages or on the main home page. Users enter necessary information like email address, name etcetera via these forms, and send that to the website admin/mailing system via the opt-in form mechanism. The admin then can contact the users when required.

Why use opt-in subscription form?

To provide your services to the users successfully depends on numerous things and one of them is to reach out to your potential users to let them know about the awesomeness of your services. This is where opt-in subscription form can be your stand alone warrior. This enables you to attract your prospective users' attention and serve them with maximized potential by using email communication channels.

Time to time subscription form serves you to facilitate you to reach out to your prospective clients and users and let them know about your products, services and prospects. That’s why we have added an opt-in subscription form addon to the page builder that will let you add pop-up subscription forms to your web pages. Whenever the visitors visit your site, the opt-in subscription form will pop up and invite the visitor to subscribe to your email newsletter.
