Email marketing remains a vital part of any successful marketing plan. Adding an email marketing platform to your site can enable your customers to sign up for a VIP list, receive freebies, and more! Today, I’ll be walking you through how to use Showit and Flodesk together. Let’s get to it!
Flodesk is simple and easy to use, making it the perfect choice to get started with email marketing. You can use a platform like Flodesk to send freebies to site visitors, create email sequences for sales and launches, send newsletters to your subscribers, and more. If you haven’t already started building an email list for your business, now is the perfect time to start!
One of the best ways to get subscribers to sign up for your email list is to entice them with a freebie. Freebies give customers a sneak peek of how awesome it is to work with you, ultimately helping you convert your email subscribers to paying customers. Freebies can be checklists, PDF guides, video trainings, and more!
Once subscribers have opted into your list, you can continue to engage them by sending out newsletters and other content. Stay top of mind with your customer base by sending business news and updates, VIP deals, previews, tips, and more! Keeping your customers in the loop will assist you in building a community and driving engagement.
I often have clients ask me to set up an email opt-in collection through Showit. Showit is actually NOT an ideal platform to collect subscriber emails. This is where you will need to use a platform like Flodesk. You will actually create these forms in your email marketing platform, and then we will embed them on your Showit site.
Creating an email opt-in on Flodesk is super simple! Just follow the steps below to create an opt-in form for your website:
That’s it! You have embedded the form onto your Showit site and can begin adding subscribers to your segments.
Now that you have a form on your site, let’s get started on sending emails to your new subscribers.
Ta-da! Now when someone uses that form on your site, they will receive the email you just crafted in your Flodesk workflow.
If you want to send an email to your entire list, like a newsletter, you can easily do so with the following steps:
Now that you understand the awesome things you can do with Flodesk and Showit, it’s time to get started on creating your forms and drafting those emails. You got this!
