Create a Landing Page

Landing Pages in MailChimp can help you grow your list and promote products and services. Published landing pages are easy to share on the web or in other MailChimp campaigns, so you can start driving traffic to your page. You can edit, unpublish, or delete a landing page at any time.

In this article, you'll learn how to create and manage a landing page in MailChimp.

Before You Start

Here are some things to know before you begin this process.

  • Take a moment to learn about Landing Pages in MailChimp.
  • Landing pages must be associated with a list in your account or your connected store. We'll prompt you to make this choice when you go to build your page.
  • You can unpublish, edit, and republish a landing page at any time, but the URL and associated list or store can't be edited after a page has been published.
  • The Landing Page Builder does not prevent you from publishing if you've left default content in your layout. We strongly recommend you preview your landing page and review your settings before you publish.
  • Embedded videos, iframes, and custom HTML can't be used in landing pages.
  • Because merge tags pull individual contact data from your list, they can't be used in public landing pages.

Before you can use tracking on your landing page, you must agree to our additional terms of use. Depending on what laws are applicable to your business, you may be required to notify your page visitors about tracking and allow them to opt out of Track with MailChimp. If necessary, we recommend you add a notification bar that includes an opt-out link.

To edit the tracking options for your landing page, follow these steps.

  1. Scroll to the Settings & Tracking section and click Edit. Click Edit in the Settings & Tracking section.
  2. Click Accept to confirm you agree to our additional terms. You’ll only need to accept the terms once.

Publish a Landing Page

After you publish, your page will be live on the web but unindexed so no one will see it until you share the link.

We'll start compiling reporting data as people visit your page and sign up for your list or make purchases. Learn more about landing page reports.

After You Publish

After you publish, it's time to drive traffic to your landing page so you can start seeing results. Here are a few things you can do.

  • Promote your page
    Promote and share your page with your contacts through other campaigns you create in MailChimp. Create an automation for your landing page subscribers or customers, run an ad and link your page in your call to action, or include it in a regular email campaign. You can also copy and share the custom URL for your landing page on any social media platform.

Manage Landing Pages

After you’ve published a landing page you can edit, unpublish, or delete it.

Edit a Landing Page

You can make changes to the design of a published landing page at any time. Because we use the original page settings to compile your report metrics, you can't change the page title, URL, or the list or store associated with the page.

To edit a landing page, follow these steps.

  1. Navigate to the Campaigns page in your account.
  2. Click the drop-down menu for the page you want to work with, and click Edit.

Unpublish a Landing Page

To unpublish a landing page, follow these steps.

  1. Navigate to the Campaigns page in your account.
  2. Click the drop-down menu for the page you want to work with, and click Unpublish.
    Drop-down menu for a landing page with cursor on Unpublish option.
  3. In the pop-up modal, type UNPUBLISH, and click Unpublish.
    Unpublish modal with the cursor clicking Unpublish.

You can leave your landing page unpublished, edit and republish, or delete it.

Delete a Landing Page

Just like any campaign in MailChimp, when you delete a landing page from your account, you'll also lose all its reporting data. We strongly recommend you unpublish landing pages you want to take offline, but keep the campaign in your MailChimp account so you can access its data.

Both unpublished and deleted landing pages will display a 404 page not found message when someone attempts to visit the URL. If you still need to delete a landing page, check out Delete Campaigns from Your Account.
