A couple of hours ago we launched Enlist, an app that turns your iPad into a beautiful subscribe form. It’s perfect for the counter at your store, an event you might be hosting, or anywhere else where people might like to join your list when they’re not in front of their computer. It’s totally free and available now.
When we built Enlist, the most important thing was that it could be completely customized to match your own look and feel. When it’s sitting at the counter in your store, it should look like it was built just for you.
We’ve included 10 great looking themes to make it easy to get started, but you can throw in your own logo and background image, change the copy to suit, the button label, the fonts, text sizes and plenty more. To make this easy, we’ve gone for a live preview approach so you can see exactly how your form will look as you make changes.
Once you’ve designed your form, you can easily secure it by setting a passcode, ready for people to start subscribing. This means anyone can join your list, but they can’t make any changes to the form or your settings. If you want to make any tweaks, just enter your passcode and you’re good to go.
Let’s say you sell handmade goods each weekend at the local fair. Now you can take your Wifi only iPad with Enlist installed, set it up on the tabletop and hundreds of people can sign up to your weekly newsletter, all without an Internet connection.
After a successful day of selling, Enlist will automatically sync all your new subscribers straight into your Campaign Monitor account the moment it’s connected to the web. This all happens seamlessly behind the scenes without you lifting a finger.
Beautiful, flexible forms
As well as looking great, we made sure Enlist was as easy to use as possible for your subscribers. We designed stunning custom form controls that looks awesome on a retina display. We also give you control over which fields to show, and what order they should be displayed.
You can also set certain fields as required, and we’ll handle error checking for your subscribers to let them know if they missed something.
Available now, for free
Enlist launched in the App Store a few hours ago. It’s free to download, all you need is a Campaign Monitor account. When you first run the app you can choose which list you’d like to connect it to, but you can easily change this to any other list at a later date.
We’re really excited about getting our first dedicated app out there. We’ve got plans for more improvements down the line, so please give it a try and let us know what you think.
