    Does anyone know where I can create a opt in box, i know if you join something like auto responder you get the tools to create one but i dont really want to pay for something like auto responder yet.

    Hi Chrissy,

    It's just an HTML form. However, there are a couple issues that you'd have to be able to set up with additional code:

    1. Security

    2. Assigning a unique ID to each member that joins.

    Internally, you'd have to have a few additional capabilities:

    1. Opt-in and double opt-in

    2. Metrics

    3. Grouping

    I think that there are better options available for you than to create an auto-responder from scratch:

    1. Use a premium service such as AWeber

    2. Consider using a free system that now comes with most hosting accounts

    3. Look into something from the open source community by Googling it

    AWeber starts out at $19/mo. I think it's worth paying for it. That's less than sixty three cents a day and the system is excellent.

    You can also purchase software. Check out the poll on our forum here to help you decide which route to take:

    Aweber vs Getresponse

    If you just intent to collect email addresses at the moment, you can use this free double opt-in script on your site.
