What are forms in ConvertKit?

ConvertKit forms are tools used to collect information from subscribers or potential subscribers.

Additionally, ConvertKit forms can be set up to automatically tag subscribers based on their interests or behaviors, allowing for more targeted and personalized email marketing campaigns.
