If you’re looking to create a landing page or an opt-in box for your blog, you’re in the right place. In this article, we’ll teach you how to embed a ClickFunnels opt-in form in a WordPress site.
Why Use WordPress?
WordPress is the world’s #1 content management system and one of the most popular blogging platforms. It’s constantly updated and is regularly being improved upon by the WordPress team. According to Statista, it’s currently used by 27.5% of all websites globally.
This makes it a clear choice for web designers who want to integrate a CRM, online store, or subscription box into their websites. Plus, WordPress is free!
How Do I Want This To Look?
If you’re completely unfamiliar with WordPress, take a look at the official WordPress website. This will give you a general idea of what your opt-in box should look like.
A good starting point would be to use the free version of WPForms and clickfunnels to create a working example of what you’re after. Once you’ve downloaded and installed the plugin, you’ll be able to follow the step-by-step instructions to quickly create an opt-in box similar to the one you see in the image above.
What Are The Necessary Step-By-Step Instructions?
Go to your WordPress dashboard and log in. From there, you’ll need to visit the plugins section. Once in the plugins, you’ll want to click on the “Add New” button to access the WordPress plugin installer. From here, you can browse through the available plugins and choose the one that best suites your needs. In our example, we will be using the WPForms WordPress plugin. Once you’ve chosen the right plugin, click on install.
Once the plugin has been installed, you’ll see a form symbol in the top-right corner of your WordPress admin area. This is the form icon. To begin populating the form with some basic information, click on it and click on the “User Settings” option. You’ll then be presented with a form that looks like this:
Here, you can enter a username and a password. This information will be used to login to the ClickFunnels account that you’ll use to integrate the opt-in form with your site. You can also enter a detailed description about the form.
To add a contact form to your site, click on the plus icon (+) next to the “User Settings” option. You’ll then see a form that looks like this:
Clicking on the “+” icon will bring up more form fields. For our example, we will be using the WPForms Contact Form 7 plugin. To add this form to our site, we’ll need to do the following:
1. Visit The WordPress Dashboard
Once you’ve installed the WPForms plugin, you’ll see a big orange button in your WordPress admin area. This is what you’ll click to log in to your ClickFunnels account. When you log in, you’ll see the dashboard that resembles this:
Here, you’ll be able to access your entire account, which you can use to create forms, send emails, and manage subscribers. Remember: you can use your same WordPress account to access other services, like Stripe, so make sure you’re logged in with your WordPress account before doing any other tasks.
2. Embed The ClickFunnels Opt-in Form In A WordPress Blog Post Or Page
To embed an opt-in form in a WordPress blog post or page, you’ll need to click on the “WPForms” button in your admin area. You’ll then be taken to the WordPress pages or blog posts where you can find and embed the ClickFunnels form. To do this, simply click on the green + icon and click on the “Embed Form” option.
You’ll then see a shortcode that looks like this:
To add this shortcode to your blog post or page, simply click on the “Insert Shortcode” option and paste the shortcode into the box that appears. Once you’ve pasted the shortcode, your post or page will automatically be updated with the embedded form.
3. Fill Out The Form And Preview It
You’ll then need to click on the “Submit” button to send the form to ClickFunnels. The form will then be processed by the platform and an email will be sent to you with further instructions. Once you’ve received the email, simply follow the instructions and you’ll be able to opt-in new subscribers to your list.
WordPress forms are typically very easy to use and require very little customization. The fields are always automatically populated and there are no limits to the number of subscribers you can have on your list.

What Type Of Content Will My Opt-in Box Appear On?
If you’re looking to create an opt-in box for your WordPress site, you’ll want to be sure that the content within the box is relevant to the person joining the list. This means that the content will need to be of high quality and well-written to catch the attention of the reader. You’ll also want to make sure that the material within the box is fresh and that it will not be seen as outdated or boring to the reader.
An example of a beautifully written piece that would make a good fit for an opt-in box is this blog post by Mashable. It talks about the importance of a strong online reputation and the benefits of participating in corporate responsibility programs. An engaging blog post like this will make a good impression on potential subscribers and encourage them to subscribe.
Where Should I Place This Box?
An easy way to make your opt-in box stand out is to put it at the top of a column on your WordPress site. You can then continue to add more content below the form, using the remaining space in the column. When a visitor lands on your site and sees the opt-in box at the top of the page, they’ll most likely want to click on it to find out more about subscribing.
Keep in mind that not everyone will want to read through all of the content on your site before joining your list. So, you may want to consider hiding the opt-in box on your WordPress site until a visitor clicks on it. You can then bring them to a page where they can learn more about your content and find the opt-in box at the top of the page.
What About The Font, Color, And Measurements?
Font face, color, and measurements all play a major role in crafting the perfect opt-in box. When choosing a font for your opt-in box, you want to go for a serif typeface. These fonts tend to be bigger and more visually appealing than their sans-serif counterparts. With regard to the color, go for a light or white colored box so that it stands out more from the text around it.
Remember the purpose of your opt-in box is to gather subscribers. So, you don’t want to make it too flashy or distracting. For the measurements, you want to make sure that the measurement taken from the top-left corner of the form to the bottom-right corner is at least 8.5 inches so that when a person fills it out, they fit all the available space. This will help ensure that the information is received by the person who receives the email.
How Do I Set The Font, Color, And Measurements For This Form?
To set the font, color, and measurements for your form, simply visit the customizer in your WordPress dashboard. Here you can set font, color, background, and padding for your entire site. To set these elements for just one specific form, click on the gear icon next to the form and then click on the “Customize” option.
From here, you can set the font, color, and measurements for the entire form. To set these elements, click on the “Headers & Footers” option in the upper-right corner of the window. This will bring you to a page where you can set your site’s headers and footers. To set the font, color, and measurements for the form you’re editing, simply click on the “Selective” radio button next to “Headers & Footers” and then choose the form you’re editing from the drop-down menu.
