Can I add a link to my website, email or pdf which allows someone to enroll themselves in my myemma contacts list to receive my e-blasts?

Very easily,
First create your sign up form.  Log into your account:
1. Under the Audience page look down at the bottom and you will see a section for your sign up forms.
2. On the bottom right side of the page select the Create A New Signup and a new window pops up.
3. Load an image, add the information you want people to enter such as first, last name and their email.  The more simple the better.
4. On the right side in that same box, you will select the audience you want that new client to be categorized in. For example, I am a photographer, I have several audiences: wedding, family, children, pets, etc...  If I have a promotion for families, I can Create A New Signup just for that promotion. and list that on my website.
5. Up top in the About this Signup area, you can be notified when someone signs up.
6. You can also publish the page.  My page is not published so I'm not certain what happens after you select the publish this page button.
6. Now that you've created a new sing up form, on the far right of your sign up form there is a drop down tab.  Click on that tab and you will find your link by selecting Add this to your site.
7. Copy/paste the link to your website or blog.

I hope this makes sense and you find this helpful!

Hi there,

I had to log in to see what "publish the page" means.  After you complete your sign up form, there are many ways to publish it. Click on the "Publish this sign up form" button to the right.

In the pop up window you are given options on where you want people to sign up for your newsletter.

1. You are given a link that you can copy and paste to your website or an email you send out.

2. You are given code to use as an iframe to embed into your website.
My two examples can be seen here:
from my website - https://app.e2ma.net/app2/audience/signup/54146/31988/?v=a
from my blog, go to blogroll in my menu, select newsletter from the dropdown menu
http://www.charlenechavezblog.com/

3.If you are familiar with java you can also use the link as a JavaScript object.

4. If you are familiar with SignUp ID you have that opetion as well.

I hope this helps and I apologize for the delayed response.

Charlene

Oh, one other place to embed the link is in your personal/business email.  This is what mine looks like:

Hello!
I have a question regarding the signup form: due to new and very stict regulations regarding user data set by EU, our company needs to ask each and every user to sign up completely new. So we need to create all new mailing lists and discard all the old ones.  In the "sign up form" there is this menu item "add subscribers to..."
Do we have to create new groups and new segments (we send both German and English newsletters) first in order to be able to ask them to sign up and how can we avoid that those new subscriptions do not get messed up with the old ones as (almost) all of those who sign in are already there in emma?
What I mean is: We need to make sure that those "new" subscriptions only go the new group/segment. Or do we have to disable all the old groups and segments first and start from the scratch? Sorry for my halting English - I hope you can help me still. 
Thanks in advance for you efforts!

I think this MAY answer your question.  If you're looking to separate your old contact lists from your new ones, you would definitely want to set up some new groups that you are using your new signup forms for.  This will separate them.  

You can also use the segment builder to look for contacts who are specifically NOT in one group or another.  

If you're concerned about GDPR compliance, I might suggest a few things:

Check out our Trust Center for more information on GDPR:  https://myemma.com/trust  

You might also consider putting together an "Opt-In Confirmation" message.  You can find instructions on that here:  https://support.e2ma.net/Resource_Center/Account_how-to/Create_an_opt-in_confirmation_mailing
