Getting iContact to work with Google Sites / Google Apps

I was previously able to get iContact sign-up forms to work with Google Pages, but was having difficulty getting it to work with Google Sites. I was stuck for a while.  Apparently Google Sites doesn't let you add in scripts and posts the error "html content will be modified"

The workaround I came up with was to create a Google Form (asking for email address, first name, last name), embed this form in a Google Page, and set the Google Form to notify me whenever a form is submitted.

Then, occasionally, I'll download a csv from the Google Spreadsheet that's linked to the Google Form and upload it into my contacts list on iContact.

Not a perfect solution, but good enough for now.
