Creating a goal for newsletter form signups in google analytics

Help please! I'd like to setup a goal in Google Analytics (GA) for tracking newsletter form signups.

On the newsletter form, when a user enters their email and clicks 'subscribe' the data is being sent through to MailChimp via the Shopify app, and added to list.

I wondered if it is simple enough to get GA to track the 'subscribe' clicks as a Goal?

Noted, our newsletter form sits in the side bar navigation, on hitting 'subscribe' the current url converts to extension: 
/?customer_posted=true#contact_form which doesn't seem to work as a 'destination url' based goal in GA.

From reading, I think I need to setup an event goal for when the user hits 'Subscribe' on the newsletter form.

Can anyone provide me any pointers for how to do this? Thanks in advance!
