We’ve made a couple of big changes this year to help you build your lists. Following the introduction of our subscribe form apps for the iPad, the subscribe button and the subscribe page, we’ve turned our attention back to the original subscribe form.

After we spruced up the “Grow your audience” pages in “Lists & Subscribers”, it became very evident that the trusty option to generate your own subscribe form code within “Copy/paste a form to your site” was well due for an update. While the old form builder sure did the job, it was well, looking a bit tired and not at all consistent with the rest of Campaign Monitor.

After a solid amount of work, we’re happy to announce that we’ve overhauled the “Add a subscribe form to our site” section of your account, to make it easier to create a form, get the code and preview the results. It’s also a lot more pleasant to look at.

New subscribe form code generator

Flexible forms with and real-time previews

While many of you have no trouble customizing our subscribe form code to your heart’s delight, we’ve gone the next step with our form builder. For one, it’s now easy to re-shuffle the order of form fields – for example, if you want the “Email address” field to feature before “Name”, you can now drag-and-drop it into place. As you make changes to the forms, the preview alongside it will update automatically.

An improved workflow

Once you’ve tailored your subscribe form to taste, you can simply copy the code, or move on to other popular tasks, like customizing your subscribe confirmation page, confirmation email or setting up an autoresponder. All it takes is a few minutes to build a form, then customize what your subscribers see, before and after signing up for your lists.

While these changes are all fairly subtle, we really hope that they make the process of creating subscribe forms for your sites a touch more pleasant. Of course, if there’s anything we can improve to make it easier to build your subscriber lists, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
