Salsa tip – embed a Salsa form in a WordPress post or page

Not for the faint of heart – this post/video kicks off our advanced series of videos in online organizing. Dubbed the PhD in Getting Sh!t Done.

Note that if you’re looking for someone to build you a beautiful Salsa-integrated responsive website with WordPress for your non-profit or a Salsa-integrated website for your political campaign, we can help you out — just give us a call!

In this example, Chris and I are working on a simple petition, but you can apply the same principles to a Salsa targeted action, signup form, or even an event registration.
