How to Create a Custom Form on AWeber’s Submit Form

You’ve got a great offer from one of your favorite brands. They’ve got a new product that they think you’ll love, and they’re willing to give you a sample with your order. What could be more perfect?

Unfortunately, there’s a snag in their perfect offer. It wouldn’t be fair for them to give you a sample with your order, because you haven’t provided them with the information they need to deliver the product to you. What would you like to do?

Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered. In this blog post, we’ll give you step-by-step instructions on how to create a custom form on AWeber’s submit form so you can get the sample product you want without providing them with unnecessary information.

The Basics

Before you begin, make sure you have the basics down. Have you created a Shopify store? What kind of products do you sell?

These are all important questions, because you’ll need to know what you’re doing in order to make sure your form is accurate and easy for the brand to understand. Once you have all of that taken care of, you can move on to the next step.

Step 1: Create Your Shopify store

Doing business over the internet can be complicated, even with the basics taken care of. There are so many moving parts, and a lot of knowledge to be gained before you start operating effectively. While there’s no avoiding this fact, you can make the process simpler by taking the time to do things the right way from the beginning. That’s why we made sure you had the basics taken care of before moving on to the next step.

A powerful tool that Shopify has to offer is their autofill feature. With this feature, you can have Shopify automatically fill in the fields in your store’s form with the information they have available. So, for example, if you’re creating a product review form, and Amazon has already filled in your store’s shipping and billing addresses with their own, then your review will automatically be sent to Amazon’s customers.

Step 2: Set Up Autofill

In order to take advantage of the autofill feature, you’ll need to set up a Shopify account. Once this is done, you can log in and navigate to Settings → Autofill. From here, you can set up your email notifications, enable or disable the feature based on your needs, and edit the text that will be used to greet new customers.

Step 3: Create Your Product Review Form

Now that you’ve got everything set up, you can start to build out your product review form. To do this, click on Forms in the left-hand navigation and you should see something like this:

The next step is to name your form and insert the html for the form’s body. For our example, let’s name this form Review Product and click on the blue Add button to add the html for the form’s body.

Then, it’s just a matter of entering the text you’d like to appear in the template for new reviews. For the brand’s sake, make sure you use your real name and include the email you used to set up your Shopify account. Once you’ve entered this information, you can click on Save and continue to the next step.

Step 4: Customize The Look Of Your Review Product

Now that you’ve got your basic product review form set up, you can start to customize its look with CSS. This is a quick and easy way to make changes to the template without having to rebuild it from scratch. You can find example CSS files for various brands and products on GitHub.com. Just download these and add them to your website’s CSS archive.

To start, you can choose a black background for your form’s body. Next, you can create a lined background for the form using the background-image property. To do this, set the background-image as a gradient and adjust the background-position and -width as needed. Finally, you can add a border to your form using the border-style, color, and width properties. Your form will now look like this:

Step 5: Test Your Review Product

Once you’ve changed the look and feel of your review product, you can test it out by simply adding some text to the form. For example, you can enter your email address and see if the review goes to your inbox. If all is well, you can then hit the Submit button to send your review to the brand.

If you’d like, you can also choose to have the review published automatically. Just check the box next to “Automatically Publish My Press Releases” and follow the on-screen instructions.

The Results

With your review product configured the way you want it and tested successfully, you can now build out your email marketing program from AWeber. Just click on the Get Started button to have them email you with directions on how to use their software. Once you’ve downloaded the AWeber app, you can begin building your audience. As with any other social media platform, you can follow the best practices for social media marketing.
