Coming Soon Page Email Collection

  • # November 5, 2012 at 3:35 pm

    Hey there,

    I’m looking for some advice on collecting emails. I’m creating a coming soon page and would like to let people enter their email to be notified when the app is available, pretty standard.

    However, I would prefer not to have to php, and don’t really want to use mailchimp because of their double opt-in. I just want to do a simple email collection.

    Any suggestions using jquery or a simple free service?

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, to be simple you can use a simple HTML form that can send you and e-mail that they subscribed.

    If you roll this yourself, at the simplest level you at least have to have somewhere to store the emails (unless you want to deal with receiving them via email all the time), which means you have to use some sort of database. And you have to have a way to connect to that database.

    So no way around that, really. jQuery won’t save you :) This just HAS to have a backend if you’re going to store emails.
