Setting up a simple newsletter/email subscribe

I installed soundest which is pretty simple and easy to use but would like to set it up somehow where people can sign up for a newsletter or to my website. Soundest seems to just get emails already through orders when someone creates an account. Is there any app out there that does that?

Hey jheldt,

I'm not sure which theme you are using, but there are a quite a few themes that come with a newsletter integration. Check out this link http://docs.shopify.com/support/your-website/themes/which-themes-have-built-in-newsletter-signup . If you are not using any of those themes or using Mailchimp, you can add a newsletter to your theme by customizing it. Shopify has a tutorial in this section of their docs: http://docs.shopify.com/manual/configuration/store-customization/communicating-with-customers/accoun...


Hope that helps!

Hi jheldt,

I'm fairly new to Shopify, but do have experience with emailing newsletters to customers. From the looks of it, Shopify doesn't have their own emailing service.  So the basic idea is to capture info from the customer and get that data to your own email service account you setup.  

This isn't so bad, and it's very inexpensive to send such emails.  Typically I was paying about 1/10 of a cent per email.  These services have nice templates you can use, it's really quite easy.  The email services can track email open rate, the rate of the links in the emails getting clicked, etc.  It's nice if you run a sales campaign and want to see how many of your subscriber base is paying attention, and what they liked / what made them yawn.  And of course the whole point is to remind them you exist, give them product news, etc...anything to get them to return and purchase more product.

The link given by Brad explains how to capture the required info (email address, perhaps other contact info, and consent) from the customer, then automatically send that information to your email newsletter service.  The example is using MailChimp, a popular service.  There are many others, such as Constant Contact and VerticalResponse.  You'd need to get an account with one of these.  If you're new to this you may want to choose an emailing service known to work well with Shopify.

I'm going to go through this process myself once my shop is setup so I'll be there with you.  ;)

Hi, Shopify'ers!

Soundest just launched smart automated features called MoneyMakers and a Web Form for newsletter subscription is one of them.

Your online store visitors will be encouraged to subscribe for your emails by a form that pops up from the bottom right corner. And the best part - it's super easy to set it up as, actually, no set up is needed. Just enable Web Form with a single click and it will be automatically added to your store. 

If you're using Soundest, you can get the Web Form here.

Cheers!

I just released a new Shopify app that makes it super simple to get your customer's email address.  What we've found successful is that you should offer something to trade your customer for their email address like a guide or ebook that's relevant to your product.

When your viistor sees the digital download they want, they put in their email address, we automatically email them the digital download and you get to collect their email address.
