    Refer a Friend or Share this site form?

    Asked by bhzlacewigs on October 24, 2010 at 02:40 PM

    Hi, I wanted to know if there is a way to create a form that a visitor can fill out the form, enter the friends email address and an email is sent to the friend to share the site? I thought the "submit website" form was the one, but it seems it's for a user to submit their url to me.

     

    If anyone can explain how to go about this, if it's possible, that would be great!

     

    Thanks!

    Yes, you can do such form. Simply create a form and setup an auto-responder email. You can setup auto-responder emails so that they would send emails to an email address entered on the form.

    Thank you for your response. I'm attempting to set up the form but I'm confused. When I go to auto repsond, I'm being asked to enter my name and email as the SENDER, but I thought that would be the person whom is referring someone to my site? I don't want to be the sender of the form as I don't want it to look like I'm spamming the recepient. Also, will I know about the submissions sent to the refer? thanks!

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to set the sender address from the form on auto-response emails.

    Dang that was a great question.  I was just looking for away to set up a share this site form.  I checked google and this page came up.  I have lots of forms on your platform so I was very excited until I got to this:
