View Full Version : Tips on putting a ‘subscribe’ button on a website

08-13-2015, 06:58 AM
This is something that I know very little about. I am having my website revamped to a wordpress site (wordpress also completely unknown to me currently) and I thought it would be a good idea to have a visitors subscribe invite option where you can leave your email address to receive notifications/ images of latest completed paintings etc… Can anyone give any tips on how to go about this? (I will get my web guy to do this) Does one have to use something like Mailchimp for this, or can you do it freely? For me, whatever option I use it needs to be pretty user friendly and if I find myself with several hundred subscribers (if…) Then of course I would want to be able to email ALL of them at one go if necessary, without any spamming issues cropping up.

Or maybe website subscribe features are becoming outdated these days, with people preferring to have followers on social media sites like Facebook, twitter etc.
any advice welcome.

Many thanks
