What is an opt-in form link?
The opt-in form lets you collect emails or phone numbers from your profile visitors. Grow your audience by having a form right on your profile. We support several different email marketing platforms that you can integrate with.
Don't see your email platform listed?
You have a few options for how to get opt-in data from your profile into your email marketing platform.
This feature is built right into Zapier but is a premium feature that would not be included in their free plan. This is the simplest way to get your opt-in data from your profile into your platform of choice. Here's a full list of Zapier-supported email newsletter platforms.
If you are looking for a free option, check out our next choice below.
Google Sheets + Zapier
Google Sheets + Zapier (e.g. Google Sheets + ConvertKit) is another way to integrate with your email platform. You'd connect a Google sheet to your opt-in form and then use that Google sheet inside of Zapier. Here's a full list of Zapier-supported email newsletter platforms.

How to use an Opt-in form
Collecting information from your followers, like an email address or phone number, is a great way to stay in contact with them. There is no better way to reach someone than an email or text directly to their phone. Check out some tips below:
Be sure to collect the first name from your followers to allow for personalization
Collect as few fields as possible. The fewer fields, the higher the conversion.
Use the Opt-in form to run your next giveaway or promotion. The google sheet integration is a great way to collect information that can be exported and imported into your platform of choice.
Adding an Opt-in form
Before you add an Opt-in form, be sure to go to your intended platform and get an API key. An API key (or, in Google's case, an authorization) is required to complete the setup of an opt-in form.
Go to your admin page.
Click the "Explore Links" button and select "Opt-in form".
Select the opt-in type (Email or SMS), and then the destination.
Add a label and modify any settings of your new Opt-in form link.
Add form fields if you'd like to capture more information from your subscriber, like first or last name.
Switch the toggle in the bottom left corner to enable your link
