Ways of adding contacts to a list
There are a number of ways to add contacts to an EmailOctopus list:
You can use our import feature to transfer your list of contacts. If you are switching over from another platform, you can export your contacts from there, and import it into your EmailOctopus account. Make sure that the file you are importing is in CSV format. You have the option to create custom fields and assign the correct columns to match fields during this import process.
This option allows you to enter the contacts one at a time and input their information manually.
There are a number of options to create sign-up forms:
Create a stand-alone page to collect sign ups. Choose one of our templates, drag across your fields, adjust the design and text, and we'll host it for you.
These are forms that you host on your own website, they offer the most flexibility if you're comfortable with HTML. You get to choose between embedded forms, hello bar forms, slide-in forms and pop-up forms.
We have a WordPress plugin that can be found here.
Third-party form integration
We support a number of integrations with form providers that allow you to create your own forms and transfer the contacts over to EmailOctopus. You can learn how to do this here.
