New Post-Optin Options in Thrive Leads
Ever wished you could have visitors opt-in to your mailing list without leaving the original content they were looking at?
We know many of you do!
Hey this is awesome... however, what would be EVEN BETTER and more relevant would be to get your on-page (embedded) optin forms to submit in the background without redirecting, just give a success message. It really throws people off to be redirected after optin.
Hi Shane, was the ability to redirect to a state on optin ever added? I don't want my subscribers to leave the page, I just want them to see a confirmation message that the requested ebook/video etc has been sent. I don't see where or how to do it but hoping that functionality exists :)
Amazing feature Shane! I'm a new customer and I love Thrive Leads.
Simple question: is there an option to avoid redirect and reload the page after a lightbox opt-in?
I would like the lightbox to simply be closed after entering an email address, without redirect to thank you page and without page reload.
An option to add here would be much appreciated :)
We've received many more requests along these lines, so we added two new post-optin options in Thrive Leads.
Take a look at the video to see how they work.
What Happens After They Sign up?
When you connect your opt-in form to your email service via API, you can manage what happens after the signup from within Thrive Leads.
Up until now, you already had 2 options in the Actions After Signup menu:
- Reload the current page
- Redirect to URL (to send them to a custom thank you or confirmation page)
The two new options you'll find now are:
3. Display message without reload
4. Switch state
When you choose this option, you can customize a text message that will be displayed in a small message box at the top of the screen. The message will automatically disappear after a few seconds.
If the visitor opted in through a lightbox, screen-filler, slide-in or Scroll Mat, the overlay will automatically close.
That means the visitor will get a confirmation message and the screen will be cleared up for them so they can continue reading where they left off, when they saw the opt-in form.
This option is only available for opt-in forms with more than one state. Instead of redirecting to a different page, you can change the content of the opt-in form itself, immediately after a successful opt-in.
This means you can show a success message - or even a download link - directly in the opt-in form.
While the "Display Message" option allows you to customize the text of the success message, the "Switch State" option gives you complete freedom. You can customize the success state of your form to contain any text, images, media, links etc. that you want.
How Will You Use It?
How do you like these new options? Please let us know in the comments below!
We're also interested to know what ideas you have for putting these features into use on your own site.
