Use Selzy pop-up forms to automatically collect users’ data and grow your email list. A popup form will appear automatically in response to a trigger — a certain action a user takes on your website.
Forms should prompt users to take an action that is useful for marketing. Such as, opt in for emails, share their contact data, agree to participate in a promotion event, and so on.
To create a pop-up form, navigate to Tools — Popup forms from the top menu in your Selzy account.
Create a new form
On the Popup forms page, click the Create The Form button.
Select a template
Choose a template you like and give it a name.
Customize your form
In the Design tab you can customize the appearance of your form.
Edit the text of your form.
Click Continue to save the form and proceed to the next tab.
Form display conditions
Choose the trigger to use to display the form on the website. When any of the following conditions is met, the form will be displayed.
You’ve chosen Leaving the page and Time spent (5 seconds). This means that the form will be displayed when a user spends more than 5 seconds on the page or when he/she tries to close the tab with the site.
Be sure to select at least one condition, otherwise the form will not appear on the website.
In the Additional settings, specify the pages on which the form will be displayed; the time frame to show the form, and other settings. The maximum number of pages is 20. You can use regular expressions to work around the limitation.
Use an asterisk: https://example.com/* to display the form on all pages of the website, not only the home page.
The display time set for the form uses the time zone of the browser.
Select the list where you want to add your contacts.
Choose the type of your form: with or without a confirmation email. We recommend using double opt-in forms. In this case, malicious users won’t be able to fill your lists with spam traps, and your emails will safely get to the Inbox.
If you’ve chosen “The confirmation letter”, make sure to fill in the From , Sender’s name, Subject fields.
Be sure to fill in the fields for the subscription confirmation email, otherwise the form will not be activated.
You can also set up additional Selzy fields and specify the values to be recorded in these fields.
You have multiple websites with forms installed on them. Create an additional field named Site and link it with the website’s URL.
This way , any time a visitor submits his/her email or phone number, the link you’ve specified will be recorded in Selzy. Therefore, you will know which sites the subscribers are coming from.
Activate your form
Copy the code and add it to your website.
At this stage, you will see the websites where you’ve installed your code. The code is the same of all the forms you’ve created. When the code is installed, one of the active forms will appear on the website. The choice of the form will depend on the actions performed by the website visitor.
Activate the form and save the changes.
All your forms are available on Tools – Pop-up forms.
You can edit, copy, delete, activate and deactivate them.
To activate an existing form, navigate to the Activation stage — the final stage of the editing process.
