Hello,I’m new to creating websites and have experanced many subscribe methods visiting other people website. Some our just plan crazy what it put the subscriber thru and takes you awy from the original website.
I would like to have recommendations of the best subscribe method that people have experienced and also any help on setting it up. The subscribe if possible should be easy – Enter your email to subscribe ___________. Hit Button. Then it should bring you to webpage on my site that says thank you for subscribing. You will get an email to confirm your subscription.
Open email and hit Yes I want to join. Then it automatically brings you back to your website.
This is how I envision it working but can’t find a way to do this.
Can anyone help me?http://April 16, 2013 at 9:13 pm #35876April 17, 2013 at 5:33 pm #36026
What Brad is referring to is subscribing to a site’s RSS feed, which is a great way to distribute your content. When they sign up, your subscribers can access the content you publish as WordPress posts without ever coming back to your site – each post will be sent to them via email/through the RSS feed system. Implementing a sign-up box for these is as simple as putting the widget into one of your sidebars, which then shows the site visitor a field that they can type in their email address and hit Enter and it walks them through the sign-up process.
Or, are you talking about letting someone become a member on your website so that they can access special content after signing in? If so, then you have a lot of options, and we’d need more info on your requirements before making suggestions. The big question is, are you going to charge for access? Or do you just want to know who’s viewing your content by having them sign up for an account before displaying it to them? Lots of ways to go and how it’s implemented is very much up to you.April 17, 2013 at 7:30 pm #36054
Thanks Brad and Essaysnark,
I think at this time it might just be the option Brad gave. However what do you feel is best to use with the plugin – Mailchimp, Aweber, or feedburner? Looking to have this be a free service until the number of subscribers goes up.April 17, 2013 at 7:43 pm #36056April 17, 2013 at 7:58 pm #36057
I’m such a rookie at this stuff. I’m so confused.
I want to be able to allow people to sign up so that they get my post when i put a new post up?
Is that MC or Feedburner? Or either one?
Sorry I’m new at this.April 17, 2013 at 8:05 pm #36058
