In Audience Republic, you can create a signup form to collect subscribers.

How to create a signup form

  • Navigate to the Messaging menu
  • Click on the Signup Forms tab
  • Click Create


Step 1: Setup your signup form

  • On the Setup your signup form page: 
    • Add your heading
    • Add an optional description (copy to appear under the heading)
    • Update the URL if desired (optional as the URL will automatically generate based on the heading)
    • From the drop down menu labelled Subscribe to list, choose which list this form will subscribe contacts to
    • Tick to enable the Channels (Email and/or SMS) for the list. 
    •  If you're collecting mobile numbers, the SMS channel must be selected


  • Customise the color of the subscribe button (optional)
  • Upload an image to sit at the top of the signup form (optional)
  • Click Next

  • If you need to follow GDPR, CCPA, TCPA guidelines you can toggle the on/off switch
  • To add your own privacy policy, toggle the on/off switch and add the company name and link to the policy

Step 2: Form Fields

  • Select the fields to display on your signup form
  • Choose which fields fans must enter when subscribing to the list (click See all to reveal the full list of available fields).
  • You can choose to make fields optional by ticking the Optional check box(es)
  • Please note: if collecting mobile numbers the SMS channel must be selected and cannot be "optional" 

Custom Fields

To create a form that resembles a survey, consider creating a signup form that includes Custom Fields.

  • Click Add Custom Field
  • Enter the Field Name and Field Type

  • Scroll to "Dropdown options" and apply tags to each option - these tags will automatically be applied to contacts who select this option. 
  • Click Save
    *For best practice to enable segmentation, we recommend applying tags to each of those custom fields*


Privacy:

  • If you need to follow GDPR, CCPA, TCPA guidelines you can toggle the on/off switch
  • To add your own privacy policy, toggle the on/off switch and add the company name and link to the policy


Advanced Settings

  • In the top right corner, click Advanced Settings
  • In General, you can add a tag

  • Click on Settings to add a Call To Action Button

  • Select Pixels to add a pixel/HTML code
  • Then click Save

  • Click Finish
  • To distribute the signup form link, or add it to your website, copy the URL by clicking Copy Link
  • You can view the live form by clicking on View Signup Form  
  • Otherwise click Done
  • Optional: you can also Add a signup form to your website


Please note: 

  • All non-embedded forms (ie, ones which open in a new modal) are not customisable. Our signup forms do not explicitly support this. Please ask your developer to do some custom dev work.


How to add a custom background color to your signup form

  • Click Advanced Settings
  • Click 'Pixels' tab
  • Enable 'Custom' to ON

  • Edit the Custom HTML by adding the below CSS code in the header:
<style> .blurred-background { background-image:none!important; background-color: #FFFFFF!important; }
</style>
  • Replace #FFFFFF with the desired colour
  • Click Next & Exit the form to Save your changes
