Integration with amazing landing page builder Carrd

Integration with amazing landing page builder Carrd

We’re introducing an integration with a landing page builder Carrd.

Carrd enables you to create beautiful, fully responsive single-page sites that you can use to:

  • Collect email addresses for a mailing list.
  • Showcase your new product, service, book.
  • Promote an event.
  • Present your portfolio and more…

What’s special about Carrd?

As you know, there are lots of site or landing page builders out there, like SquareSpace, LeadPages, Unbounce, Wix and many more. I have tried most of them and I can tell you that Carrd really stands out.

Carrd shares the same values as MailerLite – simplicity and great value for money. I was also impressed with stylish and smooth UI design.

Other landing page builders are often difficult to use and their useful features become lost within a frustrating interface. Moreover, they are expensive and have tricky pricing plans.

Carrd is straightforward and easy to learn. You can try it without signing up.

There’s a Pro plan with extra features, including signup forms. It’s just $19/year. No need to buy immediately, you can give it a try with a 7-day trial.

Special offer for MailerLite users

If you like Carrd and decide to buy the Pro plan you will get 40% discount! It means that you pay just $11 and you can have up to 10 landing pages for the full year. That’s totally awesome!

Use special promo code MAILERLITE.

How to integrate with MailerLite?

First of all, you will need the Pro plan to have the sign-up form feature. So just start the free trial and let's go.

Choose a Starting Point – select from a list of amazing design templates. You can sort the templates by categories like profile, landing, form, portfolio or section if you want to create more than a just one-page site.

choose template carrd landing pages

All templates have the same set of content blocks, including the sign-up form that you will need to collect subscribers.

Once you have chosen the template, add the Form block.

add landing page form carrd

Set form type to “Signup” and select option “Via MailerLite”.

Now you will have to enter your MailerLite account API Key and ID of the group you want to assign to subscribers coming from this form.

You can find the API Key and Group ID in your MailerLite account under “Integrations” in the top right drop-down menu. Here’s an article from our knowledge base on how to find the API key.

Finally, you can set what happens after the form is submitted. You can display a thank you message or redirect to another URL.

By default, this integration will work as single opt-in. If you want to turn ON the double opt-in, you have to set it in your MailerLite account under “Subscribe settings” in the top right drop-down menu. Read about it in our knowledge base – double opt-in for API and integrations.

That’s it! You’re all set and ready to grow your subscriber list with new stunning landing page!

Don’t forget: Carrd has a special 40% discount offer for MailerLite users!

The promo code is MAILERLITE.
