Sharing Your Forms

Once you've customized your form, or if you're happy with the default set up, MailChimp offers a few different ways to share your form so you can increase your subscribers! The share it includes:

  • A subscribe form URL that you can copy and paste into your current email program or that you can paste on your website, social networking sites, or even include in printed materials.
  • Twitter and Facebook buttons to automatically share the link on one of these social networks.
  • Quick links to various sizes of a scannable QR code to include on your printed materials to increase on location signups.
  • A code snippet that you can paste in your HTML to link to your signup form.
  • A button to create HTML code for a smaller form that you can embed on your website if you want more than just a link. Click here for more information about adding your signup form to your site.
