A quick and easy way to get your readers back to YOUR site!

Did you ever wonder how to get your people back to your site AFTER they sign up to your Newsletter using a third-party EMS (Email Marketing Service) like MailChimp?

In my GDPR Blog (and YouTube tutorial), I talked about GDPR and the exact steps I took to get GDPR ready.

I also mention a Thank You page.

TODAY, I'd like to show you, click by click, how to create a Thank You page in Squarespace and link it to Mailchimp...

So that people are automatically guided back to your Squarespace website after they left it to sign up to your newsletter via your new GDPR compliant MailChimp form. 😉

That way you won't lose any of your visitors as they come back to your site and keep exploring and read what you're all about.
