i understand they are on the footer but i would just like to put something here so that its on the page, just to subscribe to the mailing list so its easier!

I did attempt to create a new page template with some coding i found on this forum but the coding wasn't working and it maybe wasnt for my template.

Any help is much apprecaited.

Hi, @beechmountain! It sounds like you're trying to add the signup box and all of its code to a specific area on a custom page. This will require not only some HTML, but some CSS and LIquid modifications to your theme, so it'll require some comfort and experience with coding in those elements, sections, and files.

From viewing your site, it looks like you're working on setting things up, but don't have an email marketing app set up yet. Do you have one that you've yet to set up or have you considered streamlining the sign-ups and email marketing in one app?

I highly recommend making the process quick and simple so that you have everything you need in one tool. Running a business is a lot of work so the less time spent on smaller details the more time you can spend on scaling and marketing.

There are 2 apps that I would recommend to help. Privy and Omnisend are both great tools to build email capture sections and manage your email subscriber lists as well as send a series of emails in any setup you prefer. They also have free plans so you don't have to pay extra to add a customized sign-up form on your page. Both of them have some help pages to set up the signup page on your store however you wish for it to look:

One thing to also note here is that having a sign-up page is great, but if your visitors land on your site on a different page and don't see the banner at the top, it would be ideal to have a timed popup to get their attention. Using the apps above you can create that in a matter of a couple of minutes. I suggest making sure that when using a pop-up to capture emails, you set it up so that it will not show up more than once for that person in a day and not show up to those who have already signed up from that IP address. These settings are included in those apps.

An alternative method to get that sign-up form hardcoded into your chosen template page is to hire an expert. I highly recommend hiring one of our partners to help you with this. You can find a suitable Shopify Partner in the Experts Marketplace or request a quote by following this guide here. A Shopify Expert would be able to go into all of the files and code needed to set that up for you.

Since you're working on setting things up to capture email subscribers on your site. You'll likely be looking at setting up a welcome funnel as well. This would mean that you'd send a few auto-scheduled emails out to your new subscribers. You can do this with the apps above.

A welcome funnel will give your new subscribers the chance to get to know what your business is about, your story, the products, unique process, and a discount for their first purchase (usually). It's a great way to nurture the new subscriber and grow your list into long-term customers.

Email marketing is a big part of any business and it will help you lower your costs of converting sales in the long run. If you've not had a chance to check into some email marketing strategies, I recommend checking in on this free course we created to help you with all the basics you'll need.

Give me a shout here and let me know which method worked best for you!
