Creating A Professional Landing Page Using The Health Coach WordPress Theme
You'll next want to add your newsletter, using the BlossomThemes Email Newsletter plugin that was installed earlier.
Go back to your WordPress dashboard and click the Add New in the plugin settings area.
You will then be directed to a page where you can configure the newsletter settings, and provide relevant information about your newsletter.
The sections below are the areas you will want to complete:
Section A: This is where you will want your headline to be placed. This headline will appear above your opt-in form.
If you need help thinking of a great headline, then do a search here in Wealthy Affiliate.
There are many blog posts about choosing great headlines, you're sure to find something suitable to assist you.
Section B: Select the Name and Email option, this is so that the form will have an area where a subscriber can add both their name and email address.
Section C: This is the text that will display on the button that users will click to subscribe to your mailing list. Directly under that, is a box you should check for GDPR compliance.
Section D: This is the button that you will need to click to create & save your newsletter.
Section E: This is the shortcode you will need to use to insert your opt-in form on your landing page.
Copy this shortcode now, and then click the publish button.
You will now need to go back to the Appearance > Customize > Front Page Settings > Banner Section
Directly under the image you added, at the bottom of that area, is the form where you can paste your shortcode that you just copied.
Paste the code there now, and then click the blue Publish button to save your changes.
Below, you can see how the opt-in form appears on my site, it'll look this great on yours as well!
You can see here, why I suggested that the predominant part of your image be to the left, so that the form will not cover anything important that you wish to display to your site visitors.
Before you begin the next lesson, you may want to take a bit of a break.
The next section will be a bit more complex, as it will require you to add text that is related to your mailing list so you'll want to be sure that you've rested a moment so that you can think more clearly.
I highly recommend that you break for at least an hour, or even overnight if you feel that you need longer.
