Yesterday I talked about how I was looking at replacing my Bounce Exchange popup that collected leads to this new thing. I get Bounce Exchange for free (it starts at 5k/month) but honestly I wanted more functionality and this looked promising.
So yesterday I talked and thought I would implement it over the weekend. But its so simple to setup I had it running in under an hour.
This thing is unbelieveable and the best thing is it does not require wordpress. That is a HUGE thing for me cause a lot of times I want to collect leads but not inside of wordpress or then code out my own popup. Pain in the ass.
Just a funny side note – I went with a lot of the default settings and one was that it time loads and animates the popup. I didn’t really like that so I went and changed it to instantly load. Funny thing – I got 30% more opt in’s with the one that was animated (they do this for you).
Another cause of the “expert” doesn’t know what their users like until they test it.
I just wanna say I love this service and can’t believe its $27 for life. Not a monthly fee.
Anyway Let walk you through how frickin easy it was to setup.
I spent all of about 2 minutes using their WYSIWYG editor. Â The dashboard looks like this:
Integration wise… check this out. Â If you want wordpress you just download the plugin. Â If you want it outside you just copy and paste the code. Â No learning jquery or spending a hundred bucks on custom code… it just works.
If you do integrate in wordpress you copy your 4 digit id and paste it… and you’re done.
Now for the cool stuff. Â Who should see the popup?
You can choose from everyone, new visitors only, or returning visitors. Â You can also specify how many days to wait until a person see’s it again. Â And a really cool Ninja trick – exclude domains. Â I made mine so nobody coming from FaceBook will see it. Â This is VERY helpful because some ad platforms do not like popup windows.
When do you show the popup? Â Image speaks for itself.
Where do you show the popups? Â This is legit cause you can show it on all pages or exclude some that you don’t want to distract users with. Â For me this is my consulting page on ShoeMoney. Â If people hit this page I don’t want them to be distracted by signing up to my newsletter.
Honestly this is one of those things that truly is a game changer for me. Â Are popups new? Â Of course not. Â Is making it VERY simple and flexible for frickin $27 for life! Â You tell me.
Whether you plan on using this immediately or sometime in the future grab it at that price before it goes to hundreds of dollars (thats what I would charge).
