In today’s video, I want to quickly show you a much requested feature we just released inside of LeadPages and that is the lead notification option and integration settings. This new feature gives you an entirely new way to collect leads using LeadPages plus makes it easier than ever to get up and running with LeadPages in minutes whether you have an email service provider or not. So what does this feature do? Well this feature allows you to have your new subscribers information sent directly to your email inbox instead of adding them to a list in your email service provider. This is great if you haven’t integrated your new LeadPages account with your email service provider yet or you simply want that information sent directly to you.
This feature is available in both LeadPages and LeadBoxes. So when would you want to use this feature? There are several situations where it’s extremely useful. Number one, this new feature allows you to collect leads without having to integrate your LeadPages account with an email service provider. So if you don’t have an account with a service like MailChimp, AWeber or any other of the many services LeadPages integrates with you can still start collecting leads right away by having them sent directly to your email inbox.
Number 2, let’s say your primary objective with a form isn’t to build an email list but just to collect information about prospects you can then follow up with right away. The lead notifications option allows you to cut out the middleman and have all of the information collected from your opt-in form sent directly to your inbox. So let’s say that you’re a lawn service provider and you’re using a LeadBox so people can request a free quote. As soon as they fill out the form you can have their submitted info go directly to your inbox so you can call them right away. Like with all LeadPages or LeadBoxes you’re able to collect multiple form fields like name, address, phone as well as comments from people who opt-in. So if you were asking a question when someone opts in, you could collect that data here and then your new contact information is sent directly to your inbox.
Finally #3, this is a great feature to use when you’re creating a draft of your LeadPage or LeadBox that you want to save but you’re not ready to connect it to your email list just yet. Let’s look at how to set this up on a LeadPage. Click an opt-in page you’d like to enable this option on, select your market from the dropdown. Now let’s say I’m a real estate agent and I’m marketing a property. I’ll just change the image on the page to one of my properties, I’ll update the text then I’ll click on the opt-in button. In my integration settings I’ll select lead notifications from the drop down. By default the information is then sent to your email account that was used to sign up for your LeadPages account. To add a different email to send your lead data to, under my account, select integrations then select lead notifications.
Now enter the email you’d like your data sent to and you can add several different email addresses here. For example if you have one email that was used to collect leads for a real estate agent, you can add that and if you have one email you use to collect lead for a chiropractor, you could add that as well. Just type the email address in the box and click add email. The confirmation email will then be sent to that account. Just go to that inbox and click on the link in the email to confirm it. Now this email address is confirmed. So let’s head back to the page we were just customizing and finish getting it set up.
Okay now that we’re back in the page we were customizing, you’ll click the button then select the lead notifications and then select , which email address you’d like the data sent to. Next, select , which fields you’d like to collect. If you’d like to rearrange the fields just click and drag them where you want them to be. If you’d like to ask a question in your comment field, type that in. I’m also going to replace this progress bar with my company logo and then I’m going to change this image to a picture of my listing.
Finally, we need to enter in a thank you page URL. Now I’m done so I’ll name the page and then save the page. Now when we go to the publishing window and go to the LeadPages generated URL, we’ll click the opt-in button opt-in. I’ll fill out the information and then I’ll click the button. The data will then be collected and emailed to me. Here’s the email in my email inbox with het information I just submitted. Lead notifications are a great way to get your new LeadPages account up and running super-fast. But for best marketing results to grow your business, we do recommend that you connect your email service provider to your LeadPages account as soon as possible.
