From creating a Mailerlite website from scratch to adding codes and integrating your Mailerlite with BlogHandy - here's everything you need to know about adding blogging functionalities to your Mailerlite! 

#1 Create a site on your Mailerlite account

First, go to your Mailerlite dashboard. On the left-hand side of your monitor, you'll see a list of feature menus where you can click the "Sites" option. It will lead you to the next step in creating a Mailerlite landing page. 

On the next page, you'll see the "Create" button; click on the button to start a Mailerlite site on your account. 

It will take you to the form where you can fill out the site details - including the site name and the type of page you want to create. Once it's done, click the "Save and continue" button to get to the next step. 

#2 Choose the subscriber group for your Mailerlite website or landing page

Next, you will have to select a subscriber group to integrate your website into the Mailerlite email marketing functionalities. 

The idea of choosing a subscriber group is to organize your audience group and segmentation for each page you create on Mailerlite, especially if you want to add a sign-up form on your website or landing page. 

It will streamline your email marketing strategy moving forward, so make sure to add the correct subscriber group according to the page you want to create. Alternatively, you can also click the "Add new group" button to generate a new segment for each Mailerlite page. 

Once it's done, you can click "Continue."

#3 Choose a Mailerlite template

Mailerlite will then take you to a collection of templates that you can choose to build your landing page. In order to utilize their ready-to-use templates, you will need to be a paid user of Mailerlite. 

If you use a free Mailerlite, by default you will need to build a website or landing page from scratch. Hover to the "Start from scratch" box, and then you will see a "Create" button. 

Click on it, and it will take you to the web editor page on your Mailerlite account. 

#4 Set the page layout on Mailerlite

You can choose the page layout on Settings, which is visible on the right side of your monitor. The page has three options: full-width, container, and transparent. 

Mailerlite uses drag-and-drop features for landing pages and website editing, so it's pretty handy even for beginners. 

Next, select the layout you want to use for your Mailerlite page and then click the Block option. 

5 - choose the page layout

Under the Block section, you will see some element options that you can add to your landing page. Scroll down until you find "HTML Code," then you can drag the block and drop it in the section where you want your blog to show up. 

In the section where you drop the HTML Code block, you'll see "The placeholder is not visible in preview mode" written on the block. Click on it, and a box will appear next to it where you can add the custom HTML Code for your Mailerlite website and landing page. 

#5 Copy and paste your BlogHandy codes

Now, sign in to your BlogHandy account. On the dashboard, you will see two lines of BlogHandy code that you need to integrate into your Mailerlite account. 

Copy both codes and paste them into the box you see earlier on your Mailerlite editor page. Click the "Save" button to finalize. 

9 - add the two lines of code from bloghandy and paste it on your mailerlite block

#6 Preview your Mailerlite website or landing page interface

Since the code won't appear automatically on the preview page, go to the top of your editor page on Mailerlite and select "Preview" to see the interface of the landing page you created. 

If you place the BlogHandy codes correctly, your BlogHandy blog should appear on the preview. If not, you may want to go back to the BlogHandy codes and ensure that both codes are placed nicely on the HTML box. 

10 - check the preview to ensure your blog shows up on the landing page

Once everything is good to go, return to the editor page and click the "Save as draft" button in the upper right corner of your monitor. 

#7 Set up your Mailerlite website or landing page

You will be directed to the Page Settings section on Mailerlite, where you can customize the permalink and optimize your landing page for SEO. 

By default, Mailerlite will use as the landing page domain. If you have a paid Mailerlite account, you can set up a custom domain separately. 

However, you can still customize the permalink after to organize your Mailerlite websites and landing pages. So, instead of using the random letters and numbers that Mailerlite created by default, you can change them accordingly. 

11 - create a custom url for your mailerlite page

Under the permalink option, you can add an image and set it as your landing page's favicon. Next, you can also optimize your landing page for SEO by adding all the necessary elements for search engines: page title, page description, as well as targeted keywords. 

Click "Save and continue" to get to the next step. 

#8 Publish your Mailerlite landing page or website

The next section will be all the details related to your Mailerlite landing page, including the page status, general settings, and the subscriber group that you set up earlier. 

If the status isn't published yet, you can click the "Publish" button to finalize. 

13 - copy your mailerlite landing page url

Under the landing page status, you will find the landing page URL. Copy the URL to finalize the integration of your Mailerlite landing page with BlogHandy. 

#9 Fully integrate your Mailerlite Website with BlogHandy

Go back to your BlogHandy account, and click "Settings" to finalize the integration. 

Under the "General Settings" section, paste your Mailerlite landing page URL in the Blog URL column. Make sure to add the https:// before the URL to ensure the proper integration of your Mailerlite and BlogHandy account. 

Scroll down and click "Save all changes."

#10 Change your BlogHandy blog design 

Stay under the BlogHandy Settings, and click the Layout/Design section to change the blog layout. 

BlogHandy has nine default templates that you can choose for your blog layout, and you can choose one according to your preference. Alternatively, you can customize the layout by adding custom CSS to the settings. 

Scroll down, and you will see the Custom CSS box where you can place the custom codes on your BlogHandy settings. Don't forget to click "Save all changes" to finalize.
