How to send and automate an opt-in freebie

Offering a freebie (lead magnet) is a great way to grow your subscriber list. There are two ways to do this in MailerLite:

Send the freebie in the double opt-in confirmation email

  1. Create a form (landing page, popup or embedded form) offering a free gift for joining your list.

  2. Make sure double opt-in is turned on in your form settings.

  3. Create an opt-in confirmation thank you page containing an external link or button to download the freebie.

Send the freebie in an automation workflow

  1. Create a form (landing page, popup or embedded form) offering a free gift for joining your list.

  2. Create an automation workflow triggered when a subscriber joins that group or completes that form.

  3. Create an email in the workflow containing an external link or button to download the freebie.

Please note: it is not possible to attach documents. You must add the document to your website, DropBox or Google Drive and share the URL (like in step 3).
