Can I add my optin form to the sidebar?

You can add the shortcode in a Text widget.
But, by default the widget does not process shortcodes so you’ll need a plugin like https://wordpress.org/plugins/enable-shortcode-and-php-support-in-text-widget/ to get it to process them.
Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately, I have no idea what a short code means. or where to find a widget. Should I just hire someone to do this?
@drjamesg it’s basically the code you put in a text box. Should look like this [optinform]
I downloaded the “Enable Shortcode and PHP in Text Widget”. I found where the shortcode says [optinform], but I can’t figure out where to put that code to get the form to show up in the sidebar.
I appreciate your help in advance.
The shortcode goes in the “Content” option for the “Text” WordPress widget.
