How to Deliver Downloadable Files

Are you using OptinMonster to collect leads and deliver downloadable files such as an eBook, PDF guide, etc?

In this article, you’ll learn about different ways you can deliver downloadable files to your new subscribers.

Before You Start

Here are some things to know before you begin:

  • A downloadable file, in this guide, indicates a .PDF file.
  • We recommend uploading the file you want to deliver to a remote server or file-hosting platform.
  • It is not possible at this time to upload files to your OptinMonster account to provide to subscribers.
  • It is not possible to send emails directly from OptinMonster to your subscribers. For that you’ll want to use a dedicated Email Service Provider.

Add Link to Success View

Redirect on Submission

Edit the Success Action to redirect to the downloadable file URL when using one of our native Integrations.

Email Delivery

One of the best ways to deliver downloadable files is to send them directly to your new subscribers in an email sent from your Email Service Provider. You can provide the file in your first email to new subscribers, or make it part of a campaign sequence if your Email Service Provider allows you to create sequences.

The benefit of this approach is that only legitimate subscribers receive the file.

With this approach, you’ll work within your Email Service Provider to create an email that sends to new subscribers and attach the downloadable file to that email. The exact process to do this will vary from provider to provider.
