How do I get people to sign up to my newsletters? - Web signup form
There is a simple subscriber sign-up form that you can generate in your Guestfolio account and attach to your existing website in order to allow people to sign up to receive your newsletters.
Consent to send emails - To stay compliant with email sending laws around the world, Guestfolio requires that consent to send emails is maintained at all times. As such when a person enter's their email address in the signup form, Guestfolio will automatically send that person a follow up email asking them to confirm that they are giving their consent for your property to send them emails. This is known as a "double opt-in" email and ensures you have express consent to send emails to this subscriber.
