While we offer a built in contact form in our editor, it’s intended for basic use (its options are limited). As a result, many of our users have a need more customizable forms on their website. Thankfully, this is easy to do using 3rd party services that specialize in building forms. While there are many great services out there that allow you to build forms (Google Forms, Jotform, Wufoo, etc.), we are going to use Google Forms in this example (it’s free!).

While we currently allow users to directly upload files using our 'Files' app, it is geared more towards sharing basic files (PDF, Word Documents, etc.) and is not optimized for sharing audio files with visitors to your site. Fortunately, there is an easy way to add songs, podcasts, sermons, playlists and more to your site using SoundCloud.

Ever wish you could find out more information about the people who visit your website? How they get to the site? How long they stay on each page? If so, I have good news: you can actually do this very easily by using a free service called Google Analytics.

Over the years, we've had many users request the option to automatically send out emails to their blogs' followers whenever a new blog post was published. While this functionality is not directly supported through SnapPages, there is an easy way to set this up using Mail Chimp.
Setting up automated email notificiations for new blog posts
To start, you'll need to create an account with Mail Chimp. Unless you have a very large number of followers for your blog, you should be able to sign up for their free account option. Once you're set up with Mail Chimp, you will need to add your email subscribers to a list. If you already have an email list (or multiple lists) set up through our 'Emailer' app, you can export them from SnapPages (scroll over the list in the 'Emailer' app of your SnapPages' account and click 'Download') and then import them into your Mail Chimp account.

You may have heard the buzz that the internet as we know it is about to end with the great mobilegeddon that Google unleashed on the world on April 21st. In short, Google made a change to their search algorithm that will penalize websites for not having a mobile friendly version of the site. Sound confusing? Don't worry, we're here to hold your hand and walk you through this scary (not really) new reality. If you don't already have a mobile website, we provide a very simple solution to fix this with the flip of a switch.
