Copy and paste them into their respective settings fields.

If you plan to use MailOptin to send emails to your ConvertKit subscribers, we highly recommend you create a blank custom HTML email template so as not to distort our email design. See the “Creating a Custom ConvertKit Email Template” section below.

Don’t forget to enter the template name in the settings.

Finally, save your changes.

Creating a Custom ConvertKit Email Template

To create a blank template, follow the steps below.

From the templates page in your account, click the ‘New Email Template’ button from the right sidebar.

Then on the next page, click ‘Use HTML Editor’.

Enter a name for the template and paste the code below to the “Template HTML” field.

{{ message_content }}

<div style="margin: 10px auto;padding:10px"><a href="{{ unsubscribe_link }}">Unsubscribe</a> | <a href="{{ subscriber_preferences_url }}">Update your profile</a> | {{ address }}</div>

If your MailOptin email template or the message already contains your address, you can remove the {{ address }} variable from the CK template above.

Having completed the setup, you can now start capturing leads.
