Create a popup in DailyStory
Below is an exit intent created for www.dailystory.com to encourage visitors to sign up for our newsletter.
It’s shown in the DailyStory popup designer:
Control where the popup is shown
In the editor you can configure where the popup is shown. Then, using the DailyStory WordPress popup plugin, the plugin facilitates showing your popup on the pages you specified.
When visitors interact with this popup it automatically creates a new lead in a campaign associated with the popup. In this case it adds leads to the ‘Newsletter’ campaign.
The Newsletter campaign sends a thank you email and then adds you to our newsletter segment.
This exit intent is currently setup for our very first blog post. If dismissed you won’t see this exit intent on this page, or within the entire site, for 1 month.
Once the lead is captured through the popup you can also run automations. Automations can be configure to run when the popup is submitted, when the contact is added to the campaign, or through a number of other triggers and actions.
Don’t forget the Analytics
Ever wonder how your exit intent is performing? Analysis is a fundamental part of everything that happens when you use DailyStory:
What’s not shown is a list of converted leads.
These leads can be managed directly within DailyStory or you can push them to your CRM, such as Salesforce.
While the tracking code can do some auto-magic automagically, sometimes you want to write code (and we’re all about writing code).
A sample use of this is our DailyStory WordPress plugin.
