Constant Contact Forms

This plugin makes it fast and easy to capture all kinds of visitor information right from your site—even if you don’t have a Constant Contact account.

If you have a Constant Contact account, all new email addresses that you capture will be automatically added to the Constant Contact email lists of your choosing.

NOTE: You can use the Constant Contact Form plugin without a Constant Contact account. All information collected by the forms will be individually emailed to your site admin.

Here is a quick overview of what this plugin can do:

Add A Constant Contact Signup Form to Your Website

Once the plugin has been installed and activated, from your Dashboard, you will need to add a new form.

Create your Signup Form

  1. Enter a Form Name, so you can tell your forms apart if you create more than one.
  2. Add a Form Description. This is text that will appear above the fields that people will fill out. It’s a good place to make a little pitch to prospective contacts, like, “Join our list and stay up to date”.
  3. Select a list your subscribers will be added to. This step is required.
  4. Check the “Opt-in checkbox” to allow visitors to subscribe to your mailing list.
  5. Add Fields is where you’ll select the information you want your new contacts to provide. Email is the default field. You can add a description within the field box itself as well.
  6. Click Add Another Field to add more information (like First Name and Last Name).
  7. The Move Up and Move Down buttons allow you to change the position of the field on the form.
  8. Click Publish when you’re done.

Add Your Form to a Page

Now that you’ve created your form, you can add it to your site and start gathering sign-ups.

On your WordPress Dashboard, click “Pages” to create a new page or open an existing page to add your form.

  1. Click the Add Constant Contact Form button on the toolbar.  
  2. Important: Do not use the button called Add Contact Form. This is a WordPress button that isn’t connected to Constant Contact.
  3. Choose the name of the form you want from the dropdown menu.
  4. Click Insert Shortcode.
  5. Click the Publish or Update button to save your changes.
  6. Click the Preview Changes button to preview the form on your Signup page.
