Adding contacts to a list
There are a number of ways to add contacts to an EmailOctopus list:
- Import - You can use our import system to transfer your list of contacts. If you are switching over from another platform, you are able to export the list from the other system and import it onto our system. Please ensure that the file you are importing is in CSV format. You have the option to create custom fields and assign the correct columns to matching fields during this import process.
- Forms - There are a number of options to create sign-up forms. They can be embedded into the HTML of your website, they can be hosted on a separate page or even created directly onto WordPress using our official plug-in.
- Manually - The option to enter the contacts one at a time and input their yourselves is one that is always available.
- Third party form integrations- We support a number of integrations with form providers who allow you to create your own forms and transfer the contacts over to EmailOctopus. You can learn how to do this here.
