Create a landing page

Landing pages are static capture forms that let you collect new SMS subscribers in offsite places. Unlike other sign-up flows, these are always active and don’t use display rules to determine which subscribers see them. Attentive hosts landing pages while you add them to assets such as emails, social media accounts, or your domain.

We recommend leveraging landing pages for the following use cases:

  • Convert email subscribers into SMS subscribers.
  • Provide an evergreen sign-up experience in a marketing channel.
  • Offer a promotion when customers subscribe to your SMS messages.
  • Use a QR code to add a sign-up link to physical assets such as flyers and advertisements.
