Using an Existing/Setting Up a New Opt-In Page

This help document assumes that you already have an Opt-in or Landing Page in your eLoop account. If you don’t, please click here for instructions on how to set one up.
 

NOTE: If you already have created an Opt-In page and modified it outside of eLoop then you can simply copy the HTML from there to be used in Step 9 of the setup process below.

   
1. Log in to your eLoop account.
   
2. Choose “Data Collection” and then choose the “Opt-In pages” option from the top navigation bar.
   
3. Choose the Opt-In Page that you would like to work with and click the edit button.
   
4. Choose the “Page Edit” option in the bottom navigational bread crumbs.
   
5. Select all and copy the HTML code from the box located at the top of the page.
   
NOTE: The copied HTML will be used in Step 9 of the setup process in the next section.

Facebook Fan Page Information

A Facebook Page is a public profile that enables you to share your business and products with Facebook users. When your fans interact with your Facebook Page, stories linking to your Page can go to their friends via News Feed. As these friends interact with your Page, News Feed keeps driving word-of-mouth to a wider circle of friends. (Information from Facebook)
