Integrating your existing website with Podia is easy and can be set up in a matter of minutes.
Podia integrates pretty well with other platforms, depending on what you're trying to create. Here are a few ways in which you can make both platforms work together to your advantage!

2) Add a link on your "existing website" header
Whether you are using WordPress, Wix, Squarespace or another platform, chances are your website does have a header.
A website header sits at the top of each page and serves a few very important purposes, such as linking to other pages and websites.
You can add a link to your Podia website in your existing website header. Here are a few step-by-step guides on how to add/modify website headers in a couple of the most popular platforms:
3) Link to Podia Product Pages
This is a simple and easy way to "connect" Podia to your existing website.
Sharing Podia Product Page links will send people from your website directly to your product sales pages here on Podia. It also has an added SEO benefit of linking between your existing and Podia websites.
Go to your "Products" tab, click on "..." and then "Share Product...". Then, copy the available links.
4) Embed Email Newsletter Form
Email is an incredible way to grow your audience and nurture people to your courses, membership, and digital download products.
You can add a newsletter section to any Podia page, but did you know it's very easy to embed a newsletter form on your website?
You just need to add a newsletter form to your Podia site and click on Copy embed code after you're done, to get the HTML for your site.
Now if the term "HTML" makes you go into a cold sweat, have no fear! This isn't coding but a matter of knowing where to copy and paste. You already have the "copy" part done, so let's paste it to your website.
What you'll need to do for any CMS is find how and where to add the HTML code. Most make this pretty clear, but here are a few help articles from popular systems.
Note: If you'd like to customize your newsletter capture form you'll need to use custom CSS. We do not currently offer support for custom code.
