So if you haven't already, hey, definitely give the video a like, all right? Definitely subscribe to channel, so you can get notified whenever I release new videos on email marketing, Aweber, and how to take your email marketing campaign to the next level. So without further ado, let's get down right to. All right, so in this video, I'm gonna show you how to set up your first form within your AWeber email campaigns, all right? So your form is essentially gonna be a form that you create, right? That's gonna allow you to be able to get new subscribers on your list so that they can receive your email updates, all right? And so, hey, the more people you can get on your list, the more people you can communicate and build relationships with, more sales are likely to follow in your business, all right? So I'm gonna show you how to do that real quick.
So once you get on your Aweber account overview dashboard page, you wanna come up to where it says, hey, sign up forms, right? So click on that. And then once you do, it's gonna take you to this page. All right, let me move me out the way. Well, I'll just move me down right here. All right, so it's gonna take you up here where it's gonna say, hey, grow your email list with sign up forms, right? So basically, it's the first step to collecting subscribers.
So you're gonna click on this button here to create your first sign up form, all right? All right, so what's cool about AWeber is that it's really, their set-up is not really not complicated. They keep it pretty basic and pretty simple, and hey, that's how I like it. So the first thing you wanna do is you wanna try to choose a template, right? So this is our health, and tips and tricks one.
So we wanna create something that's going to inspire someone who's wanting to learn more information about health tips and tricks, and to get on our list so that they can get email updates, and eventually be able to buy a product from us somewhere related to that. So you can come up here. You got some popular templates, right? So if you click on that, it'll you bring you up some basic ones, the planner, the foodie. Let's see if you can see that. Modern, download, a bunch of different stuff. So let's see if I say show more, let's see if we can find something that might be more applicable to our niche. So we got blog, celebration, consulting, corporate, money, hover forms, home, generic, food and wine, promotional, real estate, recreation, retail, small forms, WordPress, and travel.
Let's see. Mm, I don't know. So what we're gonna do is (laughs) I'm just gonna keep it simple, right? I'm gonna go with the popular ones. So, mm, you know what, I like this pointer one. It looks pretty, pretty good. Or foodie? You know what? We're gonna go, we'll go with the foodie. All right. So once you click on it, it's gonna bring up the template here, right? And so you can pick out any different set of colors that you want. Mm, I particularly like black, green, and white, so we'll go with that. Then you can load your template. Now once you've done that, it's pretty much, that's pretty much the gist of it, right? So I mean, you can do things to edit each one. So you can click here to edit it, right? So you can say collect name as full name. So either capture the first and last name using the single field, right, just by saying name.
Or you can say, hey, just capture the first and last name separate. So we see once you do that, it'll change it up, first name, last name, email, right? I think just capturing the full name is good enough, right? And then save field, right? Then you could come here to change the email field, right? And click here by saying edit, right? You could say label email, all right. And then you could say the value could be whatever. I don't think we really have to mess with that. So you can just save field here. I think what's important is to edit the header, though, right? So let's do that. So you edit the header, and you can put whatever you wanna put here. So you can put something to the effect of, get the very, get the latest (keyboard keys clacking) health tips and tricks to shed weight fast. Right? Something that's catchy, right? Nice, little catchy headline. So you can change the font here. So this is pretty much, pretty basic, right? I'm gonna do Arial.
Maybe we increase the size a little bit, so it looks a little bit bigger, right? And we go with 24, maybe we'll just go with 18. So you can do that. Can bold it, center it. And yeah, then maybe you want to, we want to make this white. So yeah, that'll work. All right, that looks pretty cool. All right? And then save the field, right? And if you want, you can edit the footer here, right? I like to say, I don't know, you can put whatever you want here.
I know a lot of times, they'll say, hey, we will never, we respect your privacy. We will never spam, we hate spam, right? So you can put that there. But I think that's something that's already here. Hey, we respect your email privacy. So I don't think you have to put that. So to be honest, it looks pretty good, right? So let's say you want to create, you wanna add a new field in there. Let's say you wanna collect phone numbers as well.
Know that you can do that by coming over here to create a new field. So it'll say, hey, give your field a short, descriptive name. Will only be seen by you when managing your subscribers. So you can say the field name can be called phone, right? And then you say next. So label is phone. Choose an input type. So basically text input. We just want people to put something in there, right? And then you can save the field. And then look at that, it's there, right? So now you got name, you got email, and next, you have phone if you wanna collect those things from potential subscribers, all right? Just a quick note, when you do add phone, it may reduce your conversion rate.
So depending on what you're offering, yeah, maybe something you wanna test out and see which works. Now, then so once you're done with that, you can save your form. And it's gonna be loading it, and your form has been saved. Then the next thing is to go to step two. So we'll go to step two. And step two is saying, basic settings. So you customize your form properties. So form name, we can say, health tips form, all right? The thank you page, really can keep it real basic, right? So if you're using this form, you might use it at a lot of different places. You could use it on social media, right? Get the link for someone to click on it to be able to get on your email list and receive your updates. You can use it on your blog. Someone who's visiting your blog, they can just jump on it there, right? So you can keep the basic page, to be honest.
Or you can actually come here and have a custom page where you use your own URL, right? Or you can stay on a current page, so if you're using a Funnelizer, or Lead Pages, or what's the other one? Or you're using Clickfunnels, you can just put that thank you page you want here. Or if you want, you can just have people stay on that particular page, and they don't go anywhere. So I like to keep just the basic version. And if you wanna see what it looks like, we'll get the preview. This is what it looks like. Real basic, right? So that looks good enough to me.
And then you say, already subscribed page. You can say, hey, basic version, and we'll keep it on that. That's good to go. Then you have some advance settings here. To be honest, I really don't click on them, but if you wanted to, you can. And all it is about ad tracking. So it can track where people came from to get on your list. But I wouldn't worry about that. That's advance stuff. We're just focusing on setting up the email form, all right? So we hide that. And then you can save your form. So always save. And now that it's saved, we go to the next step, step three. So who will publish this form to your website? So basically saying, how are you gonna get this form information out? So you can install the form using the HTML code into your web blog. If you're just new getting started, I probably wouldn't do this, right? And then they'll say, hey, my web designer will install my form.
So you can send it if you have a web designer. Once again, if you're new, likely you don't have this. And then the next one is this, have AWeber host my form. This will link to a page that has your form. This is probably one of the best things you can, that's one of the best things you can do, especially if you're sharing it on social media. So if you are, you can come here, click on it, and this is basically the form link right here, right? So this is the form, right? So if you share this in your social media, wherever, if someone clicks on this, they're gonna be taken to a page where they can opt-in to your list.
So let's see what it looks like. So if we come here and put that form in, boom, look at that, (laughs) right? Where they can just hey, get the latest health tips and tricks to shed weight fast, right? So it's pretty cool. But like I said, if you do have someone who can do this, then you can click on here, and right, it's just gonna give you some information on how to put the HTML stuff into your code into your blog.
I think one of the better ways is that if you have a blog, then use one of the plug-ins that allows you to collect leads and subscribers. Use that, and it kinda has a better, easier way to collect subscribers. So it's just an easier way. So but like I said, you can use this form, and it will take you and allow you to collect subscribers very, very simply. So and then that is pretty much it. That's it.
Now you've got a nice, little form. It looks great, right? Let's take a look at this. Take a look at this. I mean, this looks awesome, right? So you now have a nice, little form that looks great. And now you're up and running. Congratulations, you just created your first AWeber email form to collect subscribers for your list. Hey, you're on your way now. So that's it, my friend.
