Creating a highly customized MailChimp signup form doesn’t have to take hours out of your day
Feeling limited by the options available to you while trying to add or customize a MailChimp signup form in WordPress? Your MailChimp lists are vital to your organization’s success, but your starting options for incorporating them into WordPress and getting the most out of your integration can be limiting (and confusing).
You may have already taken a look at using MailChimp’s stock embedded form. Having to alter your WordPress website’s HTML just to add a form, and then making further HTML edits to style it can be a real drag.
Explored adding a signup form via a plugin but not happy with the styling? Don’t want to have to delve into CSS editing just to make it look the way you want it to?
Want to add a MailChimp signup to an existing form other than the stock forms provided by MailChimp or other MailChimp plugins but don’t have that flexibility?
Struggling to link other actions like email notifications to signup form submission?
Access lots of options without lots of work, all with one plugin
Getting a MailChimp signup form onto your WordPress website does not take code editing. You may have realized already that there are many plugins that can pop a signup form onto your site and link to your MailChimp account. Some of these work great if you’re not looking for any more than sending a name and email into MailChimp.
But what if you want to do more?
- Add a MailChimp signup option to a form other than the default signup provided by that plugin?
- Style without editing code?
- Trigger actions like email notifications on form submission?
- Collect additional data beyond just name and email?
- Sign up to multiple, user-selected lists or interest groups conditionally?
You need more. MailChimp for Ninja Forms is more.
