Add a Subscribe Form block to your ActiveCampaign page

Pages is available on the following plans:

  • Plus
  • Professional
  • Enterprise 

The "Subscribe Form" block lets you capture the email addresses of leads who land on your page. Once this block is added to your page layout, you can adjust its width, background, button, and more. Like other blocks, you can add, edit, duplicate, and remove a "Subscribe Form" block to any page or page template.

Take note

  • The "Subscribe Form" block is separate and different from forms you create in the "Forms" section of your ActiveCampaign account
  • The "Subscribe Form" block does not use a double opt-in process
  • The "Subscribe Form" component does not automatically add visitors to your marketing list(s). In order to add contacts to a list with this component, you'll need to create an automation that uses a "Tag is added" trigger
  • It is not possible to add additional fields to the "Subscribe Form" block. This block only captures the visitor's email address
  • On form submission, the "Subscribe Form" block does not have any customization options such as showing a thank you message or directing visitors to another URL
  • If you wish to add contacts directly to a list and/or have them go through a double opt-in process, please see this "How to add an ActiveCampaign form to your landing page" help article

Once a visitor submits the "Subscribe Form" a contact record will be created for them in your ActiveCampaign account. Two tags will be applied to contacts who submit this form type:

  • activecampaign-pages
