I'd like to create sign up form where people can forward their friends for sign up to newsletters. I added two additional fields: friend's name and friend's email address. But I can't change Email field, because it is default field and I guess in that case people will be adding their email addresses not their friends'. Are there any options to forward friends to sign up?

Hi Sarah,

We do currently offer a forwarding feature in "Share this email" portion of your Emma campaigns. Your recipients can use that to forward the mailing to a friend. This will give the recipient of the forward direct access to the signup form link at the bottom of your Emma mailing, and more importantly, it will allow the recipient of the forward access to your content so they can directly decide whether they'd like to hear from you. There are some great details on this in our Resource Center. Any of your recipients can also forward the link to your signup form to their friends as well.

There won't be a way for a recipient to forward a signup form to one of their friends outside of a mailing - but, we feel the social share option is the easiest way to do this while still respecting federal Can-Spam regulations and our privacy policies. 

We require that your recipients directly request contact from you (you can read the full details in part 1 of our privacy policies link above), so you'll need to keep that in mind in regards to including a "friend's name" and "friend's email address" field on your signup form.

And, don't forget- we have an absolutely amazing Services team that can help you with every aspect of your marketing efforts with Emma. They'd be more than happy to speak with you about ways to increase your subscriber base! Head to our services page to get in touch and learn more.

Thanks so much, and I hope the above information is helpful as you're evaluating ways to increase your subscriber base!
