After you login and set your brand up (including completing the questionnaire and filling up details of your profile), click on “sites”.
From the drop down, choose landing pages.
- Pick a Template [or start from Scratch]
Once you choose “landing pages” as the option, you’ll be presented with several landing page templates. Pick the appropriate template.
You can completely change the way the template looks with edits and changes. Swap out the logo, change the background colors, change the form fields, pick a color of choice for the subscription button, add new sections to your landing page, and more.
If nothing works, start from scratch.
- Select Elements To Make Changes
In the middle of the screen, you’ll see your landing page. Click on any element or block on the landing page and a pertinent panel (with options and settings) opens up on the right-hand side of the page. For each element, make appropriate changes as you see fit.
Add new blocks and/or elements as you’d need. With MailerLite Landing Page builder, You have several options for blocks such as column layout options, forms, videos, buttons, forms, maps, Instagram feeds, and so on.
- Edit Success Page
Apart from the main landing page, you also need to edit the thank you page (add a thank you message), change logos, colors, and so on.
Notice the tab next to the active page you are editing on MailerLite, you’ll see another tab called “Success Page”. Don’t forget to edit this page since this is what displays soon after a user signs up.
Note: Some other landing page tools such as Unbounce, Leadpages, and Instapage also provide this feature.
- Publish Landing Page
After you are done with your landing page design, it’s time to publish.
By default, MailerLite publishes your landing page on a domain such as subscribepage.io/BhXnBJ.
If you’d like to use a custom domain so you’d have a completely branded URL such as get.yourdomain.com/[landingpage name], you’d then need to upgrade to a paid MailerLite account.

Before you publish your MailerLite landing pages, you’ll see options to add a page title, add SEO title, and add SEO Meta Descriptions. Add this so as to optimize your landing pages for search. You’ll be shocked as to how much more traffic your landing pages get for doing this.
