 Fanbridge + Squarespace (1)

 
We know it can be challenging to maintain a website on top of the million other things you have to deal with on a daily basis. So we try our best to lighten the load for you where ever we can so you can keep on rocking out with your fans. We’re hopeful that our latest plugin does just that. Now, you can easily customize and generate a signup form that’s optimized for Squarespace!
 

 
To get started on your signup form, head to Squarespace Plugins under the Widgets menu and select a template that fits the style of your website.

You can preview each template with different field layout before selecting. Then, choose which forms you’d like to use to request fan info. You can rearrange each field, select which fields are required or optional and even customize the field, header and button text. Once that’s done, click Get Code, select HTML or CSS then Copy All to copy your form code.

 
To add your HTML code to your Squarespace site: In the site editor, head to the page on your site you’d like to add a form to, click the + icon to add a new block and scroll down to Code (under the More group). Paste your code into the box and make sure HTML is selected and Display Source is unchecked.
 
To add the form’s CSS code: From the site editor home page, head to Design > Custom CSS. Paste your code in the box and click Save at the top of the window to add the form to your page. You can also edit this code to customize the form so it fits your site perfectly.

More than a drip campaign_card

 

In case you’ve missed it, we’ve rolled out Drip Campaigns, a new feature that automatically sends a newsletter to subscribers that have been on your list for a certain period of time – whether that’s two days, three weeks, or four months. You can pair the specific timing of your Drip Campaigns to match specific messaging because new and old fans should not necessarily be treated the same. Messaging your fans as if they were individuals will increase how effectively you communicate with them, so we gave  you the power and means to do that.

Along with the specific timing you can create with Drip Campaigns, you can get even more precise when paired with FanBridge’s Intelligent Targeting. The possibilities are endless, but if you are looking for inspiration on what messaging to send to who and when, sign up below to receive ‘10 Days of Drip Campaigns,’ where we’ll send you 10 different ways you can effectively use a Drip Campaign with other FanBridge tools.

Email Drip Campaigns

 
Team FanBridge is so excited to announce the addition of Email Drip Campaigns as a new feature! With this feature, you can send email messages to fans based on how long they’ve been subscribed to the list.
 
The Email Drip Campaigns feature is available now on Gold plans or higher.
 
For you pro email marketers out there, you may just be itching to try out this feature. You can find it in your account on the Auto-Recurring & Drips page under the Campaigns tab, where it joins other automation tools like auto-recurring email and social campaigns.
 

Auto-Recurring and Drips

 

How it works

Once on the Auto-Recurring & Drip page, select the option to create a Drip campaign. From there, you’ll see a familiar process as creating your Drip email is very similar to creating any other email campaign on FanBridge.
 
The targeting page is where you’ll see the difference. Here, you’ll see the option called Lifetime, which is the drip function. Simply add the number of days after a sign up that you would like this campaign to send along with any other criteria you want subscribers to have to meet. That’s right, this email automation is made even better by pairing with FanBridge’s Intelligent Targeting.
 

Lifetime Targeting

 
This will run every day, so once you set it up, we do the rest of the work.
 

How to use it

When used properly, this tool is an excellent way to build incremental engagement early with new fans. Now, no matter when someone signs up, you can keep them engaged past the initial confirmation email.
 
And you as a sender stand to benefit.

  1. Email clients feel more confident in sending mail from you to inboxes where there has been previous engagement. Use Drips to improve your deliverability.
  2. Email subscribers that are opening emails and clicking on links are taking actions that contribute to FanRankTM. Use Drips to keep your FanRanking current and accurate.
  3. New subscribers aren’t putting in their geographic info? We’ll automatically update fans with no geo on file with the location the subscriber opens the email or clicks on a link. Use Drips to fill in missing geographic data.
  4. If you haven’t sent an email campaign in a while, the email addresses you’ve acquired may have become invalid since your last send out. You can use Drips for new fans as well as Undefined Fans that have been on your list to clean out inactive or invalid addresses. Use Drips to keep your database current with valid email addresses.
