Adding multi-list subscriptions to your forms

The multi-list subscription feature enables you to provide more targeted, engaging email content to your subscribers.

Use this option to ask about their interests or preferences at signup. The form will automatically add contacts to the corresponding contact list(s) based on their selections.

For example, you can offer contacts the ability to subscribe to updates about specific topics, products, or other interests. Or, you might offer the option to select their desired contact frequency (e.g. weekly, monthly or only sales).

Before you start

Decide which options to offer and create the corresponding contact lists by navigating to Contacts > Lists > Add a new list.

You will need one contact list per interest to be displayed on your form.

It's important to note that even when the multi-list subscription option is enabled, form setup still needs at least one corresponding "master" contact list to be associated with your form. All contacts who complete your form will also be added to the selected corresponding list. For example, if you will add three subscription interest options to your form, you will need four total lists. 

💡 Good to know
The name assigned to your lists will be visible on the subscription form, unless you choose to modify it directly in the form.

Create or choose your contact form

To create your contact form, you can follow the dedicated series of articles.

⏭️ What's next?

You can use Brevo Automation to trigger helpful marketing actions based on the list(s) to which your contacts are added.  

For example, you can use the Welcome Message workflow to send a single message or welcome series to your new contacts. Or, you can create your own custom workflows that will start when a user is added to your list, or based on the date when a contact was added to your list
