How to capture email addresses using a Download Form

    I want to harvest email addresses.

    I want to encourage this by making it compulsory for visitors to fill in form before they can view/download video/brochure etc

    I need to prevent duplicate signups

    I need to know that the visitor has already signed up and allow the straight to the material, somehow!

    Who can help?

    Hi Richard

    A good way I can think of to do this would be to include a link to the video/brochure etc. in the autoresponse to the user and implement either a loose or strict check in the form's preferences to lessen the likelihood of duplicate signups rather than eliminate them.

    So, there are three (3) things you would need to do (in no particular order):

    1. Include an email field in the form and make it required
    2. Create an autoresponder with a link(s) to the video and/or brochure
    3. Attach a loose or strict check to the form

    If you require clarification on anything above, please don't hesitate to ask for it.

    Hi Wayne,

    How do I set up an autoresponder linked to a podcast or .PDF?
