Want to create a full-screen optin form in WordPress?
Love it or hate it… using a welcome mat is one of the easiest ways to capture your users’ attention. Even big brands like Forbes use a welcome mat to promote their campaigns.
In this article, we’ll show you how to properly create a welcome mat in WordPress.
What Is Welcome Mat & Why Do You Need It?
A welcome mat is an effective way to engage users with your campaign as soon as they visit your website. You can display flash sales, deals, newsletter signup forms, and other call-to-actions to welcome your users.
You may know that a large number of first-time visitors leave your website quickly without taking any action.
With a welcome mat, you can showcase a personalized offer or an optin campaign to your visitors just so you can connect with them later.
The easiest way to create a full-screen welcome mat is by using OptinMonster. The best part is that it lets you personalize the offer automatically based on the page your visitors are in, referral source, and more.
Step 1: Install OptinMonster and Create a New Campaign
The first thing you’ll need to do is to install and activate the OptinMonster plugin. For more details, check out our article on how to install a WordPress plugin.
This plugin works as a tool that connects your website with your OptinMonster account. If you don’t have an account yet, go ahead and sign up for one of the OptinMonster plans.
After activating the plugin, go to OptinMonster » Campaigns in your WordPress admin. From there, click on the Create New Campaign button.
Next, you’ll see the OptinMonster account page. Start by selecting the Fullscreen campaign type.
