Adding an opt in form to your website is a great way to start collecting your visitors’ emails and improve your newsletter or autoresponder campaign. By doing this you take advantage of a valuable opportunity to turn one-time visitors into regulars and customers.
There are a lot of email marketing providers but the ones that we use are MAILCHIMP and AWEBER.
You can use Mailchimp service for collecting your subscribers' emails: it allows you to have up to 2,000 subscribers and 12,000 emails per month for free.
