We are just about to launch a new website in the UK.
We are wanting to do the following:
1. Have a email subsctiption form that captures the email address of a person wishing to receive updates
2. Automatically have that email address placed into a program (Campaign Monitor??) that we can use for email marketing.
We are essentially wanting a seamless process of subscription integration into an email marketing solution. Any help would be very much appreciated.
As a complete side line - we have a also purchased PHP Manager (user authentication software). I don't suppose anyone would know a solution to integrate this into an email marketing solution.
Are you just after a form people can complete to sign-up to your email marketing campaigns, or are you after a single sign-up for registration at the site and for receiving emails through CampaignMonitor?
If all you're after is form for users to sign-up, CampaignMonitor provides built in forms in the admin panel that will do just that. SixCentral, a startup with a product they're launching soon, is using this approach to great effect here.
If you're after more of a single sign-up there's an array of options. CMSs like WordPress and Drupal already have great plugins in built that can keep your CM and website lists in sync, or there's a lot of scope to build your own integration using CampaignMonitor's powerful API.
Hope you find what you're after!
