With the recent advancements in email marketing, it’s important to keep up to date with the newest methods. One such update that can benefit you is the ability to edit the email field on your website’s forms. Depending on your existing design, you may find that you need to make some adjustments to ensure that everyone’s details are entered correctly. In this blog post, we will discuss some tips on how to best accomplish this. Let’s get started.

Use Correct Language

With any new feature, you’ll need to approach things correctly to ensure that everything turns out smoothly. One example is the email field: if you use the wrong language, you may end up with some customers signing up with their username, rather than their full email address. Always use the full email address when collecting contact details directly from customers. This way, you’ll be able to continue sending out personalized messages to your audience.

Make Sure Email Is Visible

When creating a new form, you’ll need to ensure that the email field is clearly visible and that it fits within your website’s design. Usually, you’ll want to put the email field in a drop-down menu or in a text box for customers to enter their email address. If you went with a drop-down menu, you can easily change its appearance by applying a bit of CSS (cascading style sheet) to it.

Avoid Clutter

You don’t want to make the process of completing your form difficult by adding extra steps or by making it cluttered. When customers have an easy and fun experience on your site, they’re more likely to leave you a positive review and to convert to a paying customer. Always keep this in mind when designing your site, especially when it comes to forms.

Watch Out For Spam

One of the biggest problems that a business owner can face is spam: marketers sending out email scams in an attempt to trick people into paying for something that they’re not interested in. If you want to protect your business from receiving any form of spam, you can enable email validation on your forms. Let’s say you have a contact form with email validation enabled; when a potential customer submits this form, they’ll be prompted to enter their email address. At this point, you have the opportunity to review the address and decide whether or not to approve it. If you do approve it, you’ll be able to send out personalized messages to this customer. However, if you decide that this email address is invalid, you won’t be able to reach out to this person.

Don’t Forget About The Opt-Out

Even if you’ve enabled email validation and approved the customer’s email address, you’ll still need to ensure that they’ve opted out of receiving any messages from your company. To do this, simply add another step to your contact form that asks customers to opt out of receiving email updates from your company. A simple and effective way to do this is to add a checkbox at the end of your form that says “I agree to opt out of receiving email updates from >.” When customers check this box, they’re confirming that they want to be removed from our list. At this point, you can either email them or print a mailchimp notification and have them sign it to confirm their decision.

Redirect To Another Page

Sometimes, you’ll want to redirect customers to another page after they’ve completed your form. For example, maybe you want to take them to a thank you page or to a page that contains all of the important details about your company. When you redirect them to another page, you have the option of putting a message or a confirmation button there to get them to complete the task. When you redirect them to another page, make sure that the link is branded and contains only relevant information.

Edit The Email Field

The best thing about the contact form on your website is that it gives you the opportunity to easily edit its content. If you’ve ever edited your contact information online before, you’ll have no trouble doing this again. When you’re finished, just click the “Update profile” button at the top right of the form to save your changes.

Depending on your existing design, you may want to make some adjustments to the email field in your form. For instance, if you went with the popular jQuery Form Validation plugin, you can add some custom error messages for the email field. You can also change the appearance of the email field with CSS, so it fits well with the design of your site. Below, we will discuss some tips on how to best accomplish this.

Use The Correct Language

When adding custom error messages for a form field, you’ll need to use the correct language. The form validation plugin will automatically change required to required (REQUIRED), email to email (EMAIL). If you’re using the plugin for multiple fields, ensure that you change the language for each field. Otherwise, you may end up with some fields displaying the default English messages, while others still display the messages that you actually entered.

Make Sure Email Is Visible

When adding a contact form to your site, you’ll need to ensure that the email field is clearly visible and that it fits within your website’s design. Usually, you’ll want to put the email field in a drop-down menu or in a text box for customers to enter their email address. If you went with a drop-down menu, you can easily change its appearance by applying a bit of CSS to it.
