When we 'publish' a signup form, we generally use the "Link to it" method, e.g.

https://app.e2ma.net/app2/audience/signup/12345/6789/?v=a

But what we'd rather do is at least ask our audience for their email address on our own website first. If only we could specify (pre-populate) at least the email field in the Link to it method, that would be so great. For example:

https://app.e2ma.net/app2/audience/signup/12345/6789/?v=a&email=myemail@gmail.com

This way we could do things like have a signup form hosted on our own website (basic HTML, nothing fancy) that would ask for just the email address, and the form would submit via GET method to our "Link to it" URL. When they arrive at the myemma hosted signup page, they wouldn't have to fill in their email address all over again.

Hi there! I’m curious to hear why you’re using the link and not the pop-up, iframe or JavaScript object. Those other publishing options are explained here.

Using one of these keeps the subscriber on your site, and it sounds like that’s your goal. With the JavaScript object, you can use CSS to customize the styles, too.
