Creating New Webforms, I would like to show you some advanced ways to implement the webforms you create in Bronto. Two ways you can use your webforms are to link directly to the form in an email, or to embed it directly on to your web page. Both are easy to use, so let's take a look at how you do it.

Linking To Webforms

Linking to webforms is as easy as creating a standard hyperlink in your email message. In fact, it is just creating a hyperlink in your email. The question is, "What link do I use?" Bronto provides the correct link to your webform once the form has been created. To access this link, venture to the webforms overview page located under Content-->Webforms. In this section you will notice a small magnifying glass icon to the right of each form. Click this icon to take you into the section where the advance form usage elements are located. Once there, at the bottom of the screen, there is a section called Public Link To This Webform. If you click this link, it will display your webform in a web browser. This is the URL you can use to link directly to your webform inside of emails or on the web. You can use the WYSIWYG editor inside of Bronto to create a hyperlink or code an HTML hyperlink in an HTML email. For example, your HTML hyperlink may look something like this:
<a href="http://app.bronto.com/public/fake/webform/render_form/35st82duxm2qk2bs4pbqkp5rlqe9k/235019e24931f96467c53b7298cc481d/addcontact">Sign Up Here!</a>

Embedding Webforms

Bronto also allows you to create webforms and then directly embed them on your website. Once the webform has been built, set up, and styled how you want inside of the Bronto application, we provide the necessary form code for you to copy and paste in the appropriate location on your website. Right above the section where you get the URL link to the webform, is a section called Embed This Form. In the box is the necessary HTML code which you can copy and paste. Once you have added this to your website, the form is live and ready to start working immediately. If you're more advanced in HTML coding, you can use the form code and style it more in-line with how your site looks. This will give you the flexibility to add a seamless looking form and blend it in with your site's style. As you can see, using your Bronto webforms in your emails and on your website is super easy and extremely powerful in supporting your email efforts.
