Mailing List Pop Up

NitroSell 11 August 2014 • SEM, SEO

One of the most effective ways to advertise your mailing list or special offer is via a javascript pop up overlay on your site.

We are glad to announce the release of a new feature of the WebStore Manager (WSM) that enables you to display this form of pop over in a easy, friendly way.

This feature is enabled through: Settings -> Customers -> Enable Mailing List Popup

You can set the size of the window (Width and Height) and a third parameter to establish how frequently customers who close the window without registering see the notification. This setting is measured in days. By default the parameters have these values: Width: 400, Height: 340, CookieTimeToLive: 7, In this case the 400px x 340px pop up will re-appear after a week if the customer closes it without registering. If you don’t want customers to see the popup again after closing it (without registering) just set the parameter: CookieTimeToLive to the value ‘never’.

This functionality works out of the box if you have already configured Constant Contact or MailChimp. This is the default look of the pop up:

The color of the buttons you can be changed by overriding the default css (#nt-embedded-subscribe {background-color: #33AD33;}, #nt-embedded-nothanks {background-color: #C08080;})

As we wanted to make this feature as flexible as possible, we have created a new template in our NitroScript editor where you will be able to modify the content of the pop up. You will find the template in the WSM under:
WebStore -> Design & Content -> Edit Templates

Although this feature is designed for mailing list pop ups, it will allow you to create pop ups for promotions, offers or even just a warm welcome message.

We have updated this feature so now you will be able to choose in which pages the pop up appears. For example if you donĀ“t want it to appear on the checkout or on the home page, you could wrap the form as per this nitroscript example:

{if ((pageproperty['pageid'] ne 'checkoutstep2' ) && (pageproperty['pageid'] ne 'home'))}

<div id=”nitro_embed_signup”>
<myform></myform>
</div>

{endIf}

You can find more information about how to customize the pop up in our forum.

This feature is only available on Beta.
