Signup forms are the primary channel for improving your mailing list and acquiring information about your contacts’ preferences. Signup forms help you to create customized campaigns that convert leads into customers. In this article, we will discuss how to exploit Signup Forms Analytics to achieve your business goals.
Overview Of Signup Forms
NotifyVisitors provides you with detailed information such as Impressions, Unique Impressions, Subscribers, and Subscriber Trends. Furthermore, you can view a tabular form of the total number of impressions created for each signup form campaign along with Form ID and Form Name. To view the Overview of all the signup forms created, navigate to On-site> Signup Forms.
Here you can select the date range for which you want to see the performance.
Impressions: Whenever a signup form is displayed to a user, an impression is counted. The impression count is 1 in this case. When the user revisits the site and the signup form is displayed again to the user the impression count is incremented. So, the impression count is the number of times a signup form is shown to a user.
Unique Impressions: This is per user per session count. If the signup form is displayed to the same user in different sessions it will be a unique impression.
Subscribers: Once a user fills out the signup form and submits it, the user is added as a subscriber. A subscriber is a user who will receive emails regarding your signup form campaign.

The graph below shows the total number of subscribers (Total no of leads), number of subscribers from desktop and mobile, number of mobile subscribers, total impressions created and number of unique impressions for a given time period.

Desktop Subscribers- The total number of desktop users who have submitted your form.
Mobile Subscribers- The total number of mobile users who have submitted your form.
The Subscription Rate is the total number of subscribers divided by the number of unique impressions. The graph below shows the subscription rate as 91 over a specific time range.
A well-structured subscriber log section hosts a detailed list of subscribers as well as other important information such as:
Name of the subscriber
User ID of the subscriber
NVUID (NotifyVisitors User ID)
Entry Segment (The date when the subscriber entered the segment)
Last Updated (The date and time when the user attribute was last updated)
This data will give you an overview of your subscriptions. This data will reveal where your subscribers come from and you can analyze the data selected over a given time range.
The advanced signup form analytics reports are important to help you build a good contact strategy. Without analyzing the statistics and considering the performance, you won't be able to track your results and get the most out of your signup forms. A good signup form will enhance the success of your email marketing campaign.
