I am offering a free e-book as a list opt-in incentive. I want to send a link in the confirmation e-mail. Is this possible on a free Yola site?

Hi frank,
You could use a Wufoo form or Jotform. You could embed the form into your site, and when people enter their details, you could email it to them. It isn't convenient, but it's a start.

Hope this helps,
Callum

Hi Frank,
One thing you could do is use a Yola Form and redirect it to another page on your site after it is submitted where you have the download link. You can do this by adding a bit of HTML code. Here are the steps:

1. Open your Form by clicking on the little Edit button in the upper left hand corner of the widget.
2. Click on the "Settings" tab.
3. In the field available you will see the text your visitor will see when they submit the form. You can paste this code below the text which will cause the form to redirect:
<!--
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="2; url=http://www.yola.com">
-->

Please don't include the <!-- or -->

"2" is how many seconds it waits before it redirects - you can change this number, "url" is the URL it redirects to, so, replace the URL in the above tag with the one for the site you want to link to.

Hope that will help!
