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.
The Email Notifications integration automatically sends email notifications whenever a page visitor completes a form submission on your landing page.
You can use these setup steps to send lead notification emails from popups or sticky bars too. See Setting up Integrations With Popups and Sticky Bars to learn more.
This article will explain how to set up the Email Notifications integration.
Setting up Lead Notification Emails
To set up email notifications for your lead gen landing pages,
- Navigate to the Page Overview of your landing page.
- Select the Integrations tab, then click the Email Notifications button:
- A window will appear with configuration steps:
- Add your email (or a series of multiple emails) to users who will receive these lead notifications
- To add multiple email addresses, simply separate them using a comma.
- Change the email subject line (for example, to the name of your landing page or campaign).
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.
At this time, Unbounce utilizes SendGrid to facilitate lead notification emails. At no time does SendGrid store the content of these emails.

Sending Confirmation Emails to Your Leads
If you want to inform users who've complete form submissions to know that you've received their submission (e.g., confirmation emails), you would need to set up an integration on your landing page with a third-party tool that contains autoresponder features.
An example is MailChimp - see our documentation to learn more about the double-opt in feature.
