We use SendGrid to send out our lead notification emails. At no time does SendGrid store the content of these emails.

Getting Email Notifications for New Leads

If you’re like most marketers, you spend a lot of time hitting the refresh key to see how many leads your lead generation landing page is producing. Unbounce lets you automatically receive an email alert whenever you get a new lead.

You can set up a trigger in Unbounce to automatically send you an email notification when one of your page visitors submits a form on your landing pages.

Setting up Lead Notification Emails

To set up email notifications for your lead gen landing pages, navigate to the Page Overview, Select the Integrations tab, then click the Email Notifications button.

You can then add your email (or a series of multiple emails) that should receive the notification. The email's subject line is fully configurable – and defaults to include the name of your landing page for easy identification.

To add multiple email addresses, simply separate them using a comma.

That’s it! You’ll now receive an email whenever you get a new lead from your lead generation landing pages without having to touch the refresh key.

Below is an example of what your notification emails will look like:
