How Do I Put an Email Signup Box on My WordPress Site?

The kind of email signup box you need depends on what you are going to do with the emails.  If you use a newsletter service like MailChimp (my favorite), there is a plugin for WordPress that will hook right into your MailChimp account.   Other services like ConstantContact provide a bit of code that you can place in a widget or in a post.

If you want to collect email addresses for your own internal mailing list then you will need a plugin like Contact 7 or Ninja Forms.  These plugins let you create a form, place it on your site, and mail you the responses from the form.

Detailed instructions for installing the MailChimp for WordPress plugin are here.
