To be able to send your email, SMS or any other campaigns and automations, you need to collect your subscribers. Regardless of the information you plan on collecting, you need to have multiple ways for your leads to subscribe.
Omnisend provides you with many different types of signup forms and integrations to grow your contact list easily and legally.
Before you start
You can collect subscribers on your Omnisend account in three different ways:
- Omnisend provided signup forms on your website
- Omnisend provided signup forms for sharing
- Signup forms integrations (with 3rd party tools and signup forms present on store's template)
Important note: You can collect email subscribers' or text message subscribers' consent via Omnisend signup forms. Any form you create will be set to collect email subscribers by default. If you wish, you can change the setting in Content&Design step to collect SMS subscribers only, or to collect both, email and SMS subscribers.

Forms on your website
This form automatically appears as a pop-up on your website, based on criteria you set. You can edit both timing and targeting of your Popup to make sure it appears at the right time, on the right page. Adjust the time limits for reappearing of your Popups, to make sure that your visitors are not overwhelmed.
This form can be accessed at any time via a button on the screen when browsing your store. Once the button is clicked, a signup form appears. As it can be accessed at any time by your visitor, it does not pop up automatically. And you can choose the pages you want it to be on!
Wheel of Fortune
This form will give your visitors a chance to subscribe to your newsletters in a fun way. It will be displayed in your store based on the pages and settings you choose and can be recalled at any time. Once closed it will remain available in the form of a Widget at the position of your preference.
Forms for sharing
It is a simple, shareable signup form that is published and maintained on our servers. You can use this to collect subscribers on any social network sites, blogs etc. You can either add it as a link on any website or send it in the newsletter to your prospects.
Landing page is a great form for collecting new subscribers as well as for collecting additional information about the existing subscribers, such as country details, SMS opt-in and a lot more!
Good to know, that you can easily copy and reuse the signup form templates you created!
Integration of signup form present on your store
These are the signup forms that are already present on your store as part of your store design template. They are usually present at the footer of the website. Once you connect Omnisend to your website, you can connect this signup form to work with your account as well.
Integration of 3rd party signup forms
Omnisend offers a number of integrations with third party email collection services. The integration can be done via API.

Click on the expansion sign and enable the detailed consent collection for the relevant regulation. The consent message will be added to your signup form.
Along with the subscription status, the consent records for both GDPR and TCPA will be added to the customers' profiles.
