Summary of this Tutorial:

We are going to use OptinMonster to create a welcome gate.

This is a paid service to once you’ve purchased it, you can install and activate the OptinMonster WordPress API plugin.

Then you’ll need to add your API credentials.

With that set up you can click here to create a new optin.

You have all these to choose from, but we’ll concentrate on the full-screen optin for this video so i’ll click that one.

Make sure you setup the title and the website address here.

And now you can see on the left is where we customize it and on the right is where we design it and see a live demo while we’re creating the optin.

I’m happy with the design now so over here we need to decide when we want to show this. if I set the optin loading delay to 0 then it shows immediately.

I can also set a delay and then it will show after that time delay.

Or I can go down here and click exit intent and it won’t show this until the user goes to leave the site.

For now I’ll keep it at 0 to show immediately.

One other thing to look at is the referrer detection this lets me show this if a visitor is coming from another website, say Facebook. I can customize it for them.

Once we’re done with it all, we’ll just save our settings.

Now I need to go to my OptinMonster area on my site and click edit output settings make sure enable optin on site is check and choose one of the optin settings here. I’ll pick globally.

    I agree with Charles on this one. This was a great subject and a chance to learn something but a quick 'plug in search' in WP would have yielded the same result.
