This article will provide guidance for adding contacts to Actionetics or ClickFunnels, from any website, without using the ClickFunnels ClickPop feature.
Creating Your Optin Form
**If you already have an existing form that you would like to use, please scroll to the next section.
The first thing that you will need to do is create your optin form.
The basic requirements in order for this to work are the following:
- Must use ClickFunnels Field Names
- Must use the ClickFunnels Optin Page URL for the Form Action
- Must use POST Method
Below is an example of code.
<input type="text" name="contact[email]">
<input type="text" name="contact[name]">
<input type="text" name="contact[phone]">
<input type="submit" value="Submit">
You may modify this code as you please, but you must replace CLICKFUNNELS_PAGE_URL with the Control Page URL for your ClickFunnels optin page in order for this to work correctly.
**Do not use the Funnel Step URL**
You can find the Control Page URL by either visiting the page and copying the URL From the address bar or you can go to the Control Page Settings and get the URL from there.
After you have created your optin form, you can embed it on any site of your choosing.
An example of this would be adding it to a Text Widget on your WordPress site, or a Custom Exit Pop.

Modifying an Existing Optin Form to Send to ClickFunnels / Actionetics
If you have an existing website with an existing optin form that you would like to use, there are only a few modifications that you need to make to your existing optin form code.
- Change each Input Name to match the name of the corresponding ClickFunnels field.
- Change the Action to your ClickFunnels Optin Page URL
- Make sure that the Method is set to POST
- Continue with the remaining steps in this article.
Setting Up Your ClickFunnels Optin Page
The form that you set up in the previous step will submit the form data to your ClickFunnels Optin Page, and then automatically take users to the following Thank You Page or the URL in the Redirect Override Setting.
Any Email Integrations, Digital Asset Deliveries, and Automations (Email, SMS, Actions) on your Optin Page will also be triggered.
In order to add your contact to a List in Actionetics, you will need to add an Action in the Automations tab that will add the contact to the specified list.
If you are using Action Funnels, the Action Funnel will trigger when the contact is added to the specified list.
**Please note that this method is intended for advanced users. It involves modifying custom code. Because this method utilizes custom code, ClickFunnels staff is limited in its ability to provide support should any issues arise. If you are not comfortable with writing or modifying custom code or if any issues arise, you will need to consult a qualified developer.
