Customizing signup form to subscribe users to a specific list segment

Hello

Is is possible to customize a signup form so that it adds the subscriber to a specific segment of a list?

Thanks for the info.

Hi there Jules, yes - if you add a custom field to your subscribe form (for example, a drop-down menu for "Interests"), new subscribers can populate that custom field when signing up to your list.

If you create a segment for that custom field (eg. Interests = "Cycling"), then you'll find that matching subscribers will be automatically added to it. Let us know if you have any questions about this :)

HI Roshodgekiss

That's not exactly what I have in mind. Here's the scenario.

Client has blog and a master list "Blog Newsletter"

They are now talking about creating one (or several) landing pages that will funnel users from giving their email to purchasing product.

I'm thinking that they will want to target user signups from each landing page marketing campaign. So in this instance they wouldn't want to give subscribers the option of what segment to sign up. They want them signed up to a list segment that would be created for each specific landing page marketing campaign.

So essentially I would want to create the segment in the backend interface and then create a form that will automatically sign up subscribers to the segment that is associated with the Landing page. A hidden input field with the specific segment pre-populated sounds feasible.

Thanks for the clarification.

Thanks for clarifying - essentially, they want to record/tag the source of signups :)

A hidden input field with the specific segment pre-populated sounds feasible.

You've got it - that's the best way to do this. Let's say you create a custom field, "source" - the "source" form field would be similar to the following:

<input type="text" name="cm-..." id="cm-..." value="Subscribe page">

Let us know how you go :)
