Last week, we created a reason why people should sign up for your newsletter. This week, let's get you set up to start collecting them.
If you make it easy for your audience to give you their email address, they’re much more likely to do it.
That means having a few things in place:
You’ll need a form for people to submit their email address.
Setting up an eye-catching form in your AWeber account is a snap. Watch
this video on how to get started.

A landing page will help make it easy to share your sign up form. Plus, you’ll help focus your audience on completing your form.
It doesn’t have to be fancy. It just has to tell your subscribers what they’ll get out of signing up for your newsletter.
Lucky for you, AWeber has dozens of beautiful landing page templates to choose from.

Don’t forget about your website’s home page.
For most businesses, the home page gets the most traffic. Capitalize on that traffic by giving your sign up form some real estate.
Ideally, moving your sign up form close to the top of your home page will collect more email addresses.
See how this blogger tripled her sign ups by moving her sign up form.
For best results, consider a pop-up form. Yes, a pop-up can work without being annoying. Start with delaying it for 20 seconds. That's enough time for your website visitors to browse before they get the pop-up.
Choose either a sign up form, landing page, or home page placement tactic. Head over to your AWeber account to start building.
What if you could use your other tools to capture email sign ups?
Tools your audience already interacts with.
