These forms are normally situated on the sidebar of the website. When emails are sent they are called campaigns. Before this can be done a list must first be created.

A subscribe form can be placed on the website to achieve this feat while email addresses can be imported or added manually however it is expedient that people subscribe to the list. By so doing, you have sought their permission to supply them with newsletters.

It is important that you pay serious attention to spam laws and etiquette that guide the sending of mails. Do not add an email address if the contact has not given its permission however, if there are signs of interest from a contact, you can invite one by sending a short email that serves as an invitation to subscribe which must contain a link to the form. Avoid getting your account flagged so that it will not be suspended.
