What will a user see when using the form?
When a user reaches the Subscribe Form on your website, they will be asked to provide a first name, last name, and email address. Need to capture more information? Additional fields may be added to your widget by following these instructions.

Clicking Confirm Email will direct the user to a landing page on your website with the following message:
The user is now Subscribed!
What happens to the information they input?
When a user successfully completes the Subscribe Form and confirms their email address, they will be listed in your database as a Contact, with a subscription status of "Subscribed". Any additional information that was collected through the form will be stored on their profile.
