Customize Your Unsub Form with LOLcats

donotwantTotally random MailChimp Power Tip time.

Our marketing team has this — ahem– secret mailing list for people who want to win MailChimp stuff (like t-shirt giveaways, plushies, etc). Subscribers basically get advance notice before we post to the public. Since the premise of the list is prize-related, we fully expect people will come and go often.

So I wanted to customize our unsub success form with some LOLcat humor…

Here’s how I did it.

Go to your list, and click the "forms" link:

forms-link

Next, go to your "Unsubscribe Success Page:"

unsub-success-select

Click the "content area" to edit:

click-edit-area

Go to iCanHazCheezburger, and grab a picture (use their embed code):

do-not-want

Embed that code into your unsub success page (be sure to switch to "source" mode):

edit-source-lolcat

be sure you click the "save & exit" button:

save-exit

then go and test it all out by unsubscribing from your list:

unsub-successful

There. When people leave our list, hopefully they’ll get one last chuckle.

I know what you’re thinking. And the answer is no, you don’t have to use LOLcats to customize your unsub form.

This process also works with LOLdogs as well.
