is there anyway to embed a marketo form by just using a ahref link?
Marketo developers docs have an example:
as per the example, your <a> tag would be:
<a href="?lightboxForm=true">Click to show form</a>
EDIT: actually this is a horrible example
not sure this will work. sadly the developers have only given us a small amount of access to do this and no access to the code.
the website in question is here Diploma in Digital Marketing | Study Online in the US
in the backend i get a small area here to add a link
if that's all you get to work with, then not possible.
The Marketo form embed code itself is script, to make it modal, you need to write more script. If all you're allowed is a link, you'd have to link the poor person to some other landing page where the form is embedded
