You can create a popup that appears when visitors land on your site to advertise a special offer, collect sign-ups to your Mailchimp mailing list, promote your latest blog article, or simply show an important message.
Keep in mind
- You can only have one popup active at a given time
- When a visitor dismisses a specific popup, they will not see it again for 7 days. If you save any changes to your popup's content or choose a different popup type, the process gets reset and all visitors will see the popup upon their next visit.
- When a popup is active on your website, you'll see a "Show Popup" prompt in the footer of your website to manually trigger your popup even after it has been dismissed.
- You can edit and preview your popup in Springnest and only set it as Active when you need it to display
