    Hi Jamie,

    I’m trying to figure out the best way to include a Newsletter signup area for my website.

    Scouts Salvage has a perfect example (http://scoutsalvage.com/) near the bottom of their page called NEWSLETTER, is this a plugin or is it code?

    If it’s a plugin, would I need to subscribe to another provider that collects the email addresses or would there be an area in WordPress that would deal with this?

    Thanks again
    Pia

    Hi Pia,

    Yep the best way to deal with this is to use an email newsletter provider. They will give you the code to add to your website. Here’s 2 we recommend

    1) http://mailchimp.com/
    2) https://www.campaignmonitor.com/

    Mailchimp is a good place to start because it’s free for up to 2000 subscribers.

    Thanks Jamie,

    That’s brilliant! I’ve used the MailChimp one, however I’d like to customise it further by getting rid of the dead space between the Email Address box and the Sign Up button below it – do I need to go into the .CSS to do this? If so, how?

    Hi Pia,

    Yep you’d need some custom css – have you checked out my css tutorial on the Academy?
