How to Integrate OptinMonster with SquareSpace

OptinMonster can work with any website. The best lead generation tool works on SquareSpace too! This guide will show you how you can integrate the power of OptinMonster into your SquareSpace site.

  1. Create and Publish a Campaign
  2. Paste the Embed Code

Step 1 – Create and Publish a Campaign

The first step is to create a campaign and retrieve it’s embed code. See this guide on how to embed your campaigns on your site for a step-by-step walkthrough if you need assistance.

Step 2 – Paste the Embed Code into Your SquareSpace Site

In general, we suggest to add your OptinMonster embed code to the footer of your site when possible.

When it comes to embedding code on SquareSpace, it is best to follow their latest instructions for injecting code on your SquareSpace site; SquareSpace’s guide shows you how to add code to all the pages on your site or to a single page.

Head on over to SquareSpace.com and login into your account. To add the campaign embed code to your site navigate to Home Menu > Settings > Advanced, and then select Code Injection.

SquareSpace-All Pages

If you want to control which pages of your site the campaign loads on you can follow our Page Targeting documentation.

If you’re adding an inline type campaign (After Post / Inline or Sidebar), you’ll add either the HTML Placeholder (if using a Sitewide Embed) or the entire Campaign Specific Embed where you want your campaign to appear on the page.

Click Save and you are all done! You can now navigate to the front-end of your SquareSpace site and test your beautiful new campaign!


FAQs

Q: What domain do I enter when creating my campaign?

A: When creating your campaign you can add the domain squarespace.com for your campaign to load on. This will allow you to view the campaign when previewing your site.

If your site uses a custom domain, you should also add your site’s custom domain (the domain used to reach the front-end of your site) in the Setup panel > Optin Campaign Website section of the campaign builder.

You can control which domains your campaign is allowed to load on by adding them to the Optin Campaign Website field.
