Best way to collect emails from a website?

Have a website and would like to start an email form to collect email. How? What's the best way?

Look for 'subscription form' or 'subscription widget' or even 'lead capture'




The email addresses end up in their database but you can download the list there. They make money from people sending regular newsletters, that's optional though.

exactly what I needed! Thank you!

I put my email address on the site and say "email me".

Been doing that for 15 years and has worked wonders.

this probably makes the most sense for contact page.

seems like the easiest way is just add a google form links to your site.

Typeform and other fancy options are limited and expensive.
