Embed your Constant Contact signup form into your website to allow customers to easily sign up for newsletters, coupons, event notifications, etc.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Once you have pasted the ‘Embed Code’ and saved, editing the block will strip the code.Therefore we recommend you save the code to a plain text (Notepad) file, in case you need it again.

Embedding Code

 
Embedding code into your website is usually fairly simple. However, we highly recommend you save a copy of the code locally as a TXT file (Notepad) so that you have it saved for future use.
 
Once you have obtained the embed code from its source (YouTube, Google Maps, Twitter, etc.), you will follow the steps below to add it to your page or block.

Pages

Creating pages is one of the first steps in setting up your website and something you will do frequently; the steps below give you all the options available. The only required options are those noted with a red asterisk *.

CREATE A PAGE

Navigate to: Content > Add Content > Page

There are several available fields for you to utilize to create the content of your page:

  1. Title*: This text will be used in 3 places:

Social Media

By adding social networking to your site, you are providing your customers with a means to share what they love about your business to their friends, who will hopefully become your future customers.

Their are several ways in which you may incorporate social media into your website.

Booklists

Every page and event page has a ‘Books’ feature where you can create a unique list of products for users to review and add items to their cart by entering the Product ISBN, SKU or Model.

NOTE: We recommend keeping booklists to 10-15 items.

CREATE THE LIST

Navigate to: Content > Add Content > Page (or content type of choice)

Files

You can add a file (txt doc docx xls xlsx pdf ppt pptx pps ppsx odt ods odp) to your website as long as the content type you have chosen has a ‘File’ option. If the content type does not have a ‘File’ option, it can most likely be added by visiting the ‘Manage Fields’ tab for that content type and adding it.

PREPARE TO ADD A FILE

Knowing where your file is located on your computer will make adding it to the website quick and easy. Once you know where your file is locally, navigate to the page you want to add it to.

Links

PREPARE TO ADD A LINK

Identify the link you want to use:

  1. If the link you want to add is to a page on your website you will want to know the internal path
  2. If the link you want to add is to something outside of your website you will want the complete URL
