Step 2: Click on Create Form

This is where your current forms will be displayed. I’ve named mine based on where they appear on my site. ConvertKit not only allows you to use multiple forms on your site, but it even tracks your conversions for each one separately. This allows you to try out different incentives and text so you can maximize your conversion rate.

Step 3: Click on FORM
you have the choice between a landing page and a form

With ConvertKit, you can create both forms and landing pages. For this example, we will be making a form. I will cover landing pages later.

Step 4: Choose which style form you would like

Choose between 3 form styles. I’m going to make one that only requires the email address.

Step 5: Customize your form
Step 6: Go to Settings, then choose “just a form to embed on my site”

change basic settingsFor the purposes of this post, we are embedding the form directly into the site. Later I’ll show you how to create a full landing page hosted by ConvertKit.

Step 7: Upload your incentive (click here to learn how to create an opt-in freebie)
Step 8: Choose your form style

choose form type

You can choose your form style here. I’ve chosen the minimal inline (attached to page) for this form. I also have a pop-up style form (modal).

Step 9: Choose how your form will be embedded into your site

choose your embedding optionI’ve chosen to use the ConvertKit WordPress plugin to embed my form. It’s an easy way to take several steps out of the process, freeing up time for other things (like writing blog posts).

Step 10: Go to your blog’s dashboard and select your new form
Finally, go back to the front end of your blog and see the result of your hard work! This is my finished ConvertKit email form.
