Read the steps below and follow the instructions to start embedding forms from Constant Contact on your website with just a few clicks. Here is how you can do it.

Create a form

Before you embed a form in your website, you need to create it. When using Constant Contact, you can follow these easy steps to create a form of your choice.

Step 1: Create a signup form by going to Contacts> Sign-Up Tools. Click Create a Signup Form here to start creating the form. Choose a form name and click next.

Step 2: Customize the form to change text color, font, and schema. You can add fields and set their parameters. To change the schema of the form, use the built-in drag and drop functionality. You can easily pull one form element (a form field) using your mouse and place it somewhere else to create a form of your choice.

Step 3: Once you’re done with the form, click Generate Code. Once the code has been generated, click Copy To Clipboard to save the code to your clipboard temporarily.

Add form to your website

Once you have the code copied to clipboard, all you need to do is to paste the code in your website where you want to display the form. You can also give this code to your webmaster to display it on website if you are not sure how to add a piece of code to your website.

If you need to make changes to the form after you’ve generated the code, you need to create another form and replace it with the code you placed on your website.
