In this article, we’ll show you how to add a GetResponse signup checkbox to your contact form.
Step 1: Create a New Get Response WordPress Form
Next, you’ll need to create a new form.
For help with this, check out our tutorial on creating a simple contact form in WordPress.
When you create your contact form, you’ll need to add a checkbox to it for your site visitors to select when they want to join your email list.
Here’s what our form looks like:
This checkbox is just that, a checkbox. It won’t work right, and let people subscribe to your email list, until you connect it to your GetResponse account. Only then will people be added to your email list after clicking the checkbox.
Step 2: Connect Your Contact Form to Get Response
To start, install and activate the GetResponse addon. For help with this step, see our detailed guide on installing and using the GetResponse addon with WPForms.
Next, go to your contact form in the Form Editor and click on the Marketing tab. Then, click on GetResponse.
Click on Add New Connection.
You’ll see a popup appear asking you to name your connection. This is only for your reference so you can name it anything you want.
Once you name your connection, you’ll be asked to add your GetResponse account information. You’ll need your GetResponse API Key and Account Nickname.
You’ll then be able to choose which email list you want site visitors to be added to once they click on your signup checkbox.
Lastly, you can choose which form fields will be sent to your GetResponse email list once someone subscribes. Keep in mind, the email form field is required.
Step 3: Enable Conditional Logic
Now that you’ve connected your contact form to your GetResponse account, you’ll need to make sure that anyone that clicks on your checkbox is automatically added to your email list.
To do this, click on the Enable conditional logic checkbox at the bottom of the preview panel in your GetResponse connection panel.
From the Select Field dropdown menu, choose the form field name of your contact form’s signup checkbox. Ours was Stay Connected.
From the Select Choice dropdown menu, choose the signup checkbox’s name. Ours was Join Our Newsletter.
And that’s it! You now know how to add a GetResponse signup checkbox to your WordPress contact form.
