Elementor supports integration with several email marketing tools. One of which is MailerLite. By integrating Elementor with MailerLite, you will be able to provide an email subscription form on your website and send the email subscribers to your MailerLite account.

Note: MailerLite integration is only available on Elementor Pro
How to integrate Elementor with MailerLite

On the Integrations page, click the Use button on the Developer API option.
On the next page, copy the provided API key.
Once the API key is copied, login to your WordPress dashboard and go to Elementor -> Settings.

How to connect an Elementor form with MailerLite
After you have successfully integrated your MailerLite account with Elementor, you can now connect an Elementor form with your MailChimp account. Be it an email subscription form or other sorts of forms. To add a new form, you can drag the Form widget from the left panel to the canvas/editor.
Customize the form according to the purpose of the form. Once done, click Action After Submit and add MailerLite.
A new option called MailerLite will appear. Click this option. On the API Key option, leave it default. You can select Custom if you want to run a certain campaign with MailerLite. Make sure to create a new API first if you want to use a custom API Key.
Select one of the existing groups on your MailerLite account. For better subscriber management, you can create a new group for your new form. This way, you can easily identify the subscribers subscribed via your new form.
On the Email Field Mapping section, you can select the parameters according to the fields on your form. For instance, if your form consists of only two fields, say email and name, then you can select the Email and Name parameters.
The parameters (field mapping) you chose will be displayed when you click an email address of a subscriber on the MailerLite dashboard to see its detail information.
You can click the PUBLISH button once you are done editing the page. Try to enter some entries to your form to check out if everything has gone well.
