  • Select the “Allow consumers to join/leave this group …“ checkbox on the desired group(s)
  • Have your web designer add the /communication module link to your website
  • Visitors will fill out the contact info and select desired group(s). After replying to a simple confirmation email, the visitor will be added to your group.
  • If the email used on the form matches an existing representative then the group membership is tied to a particular representative, and thus a membership.
  • If the email doesn’t belong to a rep then it is created as a Community Member.
  • Recipients may unsubscribe via the unsubscribe link in the emails or submit another form with no groups selected.
