When it comes to web popups, triggering options matter the most. Because displaying popups at the right moment to your visitors helps increase conversions and sales numbers.

Let’s look at the different popup display rules/triggering options Optinly has.

Time Delayed Triggers

Displaying popups to web visitors after a specific number of seconds is a common practice now. By the time you display your popup, your visitors would have settled in and this becomes a perfect scenario to collect leads.

Optinly comes with a time-delay trigger option to help you do this.

Time Delay Triggers

When you’ve chosen your popup template from the gallery, you’ll be taken to the display rules dashboard.

Enable the “Show On Page Load” option using the toggle on/off button. And then manually enter the number of seconds after which you want your popup to be displayed. For example, if you want to display the popup after 5 seconds, enter 5 in the field box.

Show Popups on Page Load

If you simply want the popup to be displayed on page load without any delay, set the value to 0. Your popup will be displayed immediately after the page loads.

When done, click “Save & Set Live to see the changes reflect on your web page.

Exit Triggers

Displaying popups when visitors try to abandon your web page/shopping cart has helped marketers and eCommerce owners to retain audience and increase sales.

Optinly comes with exit triggers to help reduce cart abandonment and stop visitors from abandoning your web page.

URL Based/Page-Specific Triggers

Optinly allows you to display popups on a specific page or on a collection of pages. Simply said, Optinly comes with URL based triggers.

URL Based Triggers

By using the condition “Contains”, you can add a term from the URL to display popups on the specific pages. For example, if you’re adding the term “/blogs”, the popup will be displayed on all pages that have the term “/blogs” in their URL.

Similarly using the condition “Does Not Contain”, you can exclude popups from being displayed on a specific set of pages.

The drop-down menu has the “Hompage” option by default. So, if you want to display your popup on the homepage alone, you can simply click that.

Combine it with time-delay triggers/exit triggers to create a rich popup marketing strategy and collect leads on the go.
