About This Section
The Lead Capture section provides an easy way for your site visitors to enter their email address, in order to be informed of future deals, course releases, or similar activity. It's a great way to capitalize on interest from prospective students, in those cases where you cannot convert them into an immediate sale — whether they are waiting for the right course to launch, or aren't able or willing to commit to the purchase for other reasons.
Once a visitor enters their email, it is automatically added to your Leads section in Thinkific. For more about how to manage those leads, and what sort of things you can do with them, read our article on Managing Leads.
