1. Zoho Campaigns – You Can Choose Pop-Up Type
Timing is everything, even in the way you display pop-ups. The timing of your message will determine if users will engage with your pop-up or not. That’s why there are different types of pop-ups that must be used based on your niche and customer behavior.
1. Click pop-ups are powerful as users request them to open. They improve conversion rates by up to 40%.
2. Exit pop-ups help you stop people from leaving your website.
3. Timed popups show only when users have spent a specific amount of time on your website.
4. Scroll pop-up comes up when users scroll down your web pages.
5. Entry pop-up is displayed as soon as a visitor arrives on your website.
In Zoho Campaigns, you get four options to create your customized forms. You can choose between exit, scroll, entry, and specific time. You can even set position, animation, time, scroll limit, etc. When you design pop-ups like this, you can skyrocket your list-building and drive sales.
2. Zoho Campaigns – You Choose How to Display Content
Content is king. The message on your pop-up form must be clear and simple. Whether you are providing discounts on your new products or want to send customers exclusive content, it should be clearly mentioned on your pop-up, but precisely. Another important factor of a pop-up form design is the call-to-action button. It should be compelling.
Zoho Campaigns boasts a number of templates. You can choose one and edit them as per your needs. You can customize it further by adding your designed graphics, text, animation, and other things. You can apply background color for the image and text, change border style and color for the pop-up body, set height and width of the pop-up, and more.
Zoho Campaigns also provides several exit button styles. Choose one that suits your website style the most.
3. Zoho Campaigns – Design Pop-ups That are Mobile Responsive
Google prioritizes mobile user experience. The search engine giant penalizes intrusive interstitials in mobile platforms, such as pop-ups and overlays as they lessen user experience.
To avoid a penalty by Google and to offer a user-friendly mobile experience, you can either exclude pop-up forms on your mobile site or design mobile responsive pop-ups.
Zoho Campaigns lets you create mobile-optimized pop-up forms and you get to view it before implementing it on your site.
4. Zoho Campaigns – Determine How Effective is Your Pop-up Form
Once you are done customizing your pop-up, it’s time to set when, where, and how to display the form. Zoho Campaigns lets you set the position of the pop-up (such as center, top-left, top-right, bottom-left and bottom-right), choose the animation for your pop-up, and define the time when it should appear on a user’s screen when he lands on your webpage. The Campaigns also let you set re-appearance time for your pop-ups.
When your pop-up forms are live and active, you must analyze the data through Zoho Campaigns in-built reporting tool such as the number of clicks, submissions, conversions, and form views.
You can analyze the form report and make improvements to your pop-up to see better results. Try changing the time of appearance, content, the offer promised, or pop-up’s design. As with other marketing initiatives, you need to work on all aspects of your pop-up form to see which change is bringing the best results.
