What are lightboxes?

Lightboxes can in some way be compared to a business card. You offer your business card (newsletter) to everyone you meet, thus more people are exposed to it, and will accept it. The people who do not accept your business card will never be annoyed by the fact that you offered it to them. The same applies to lightboxes. Everyone gets the opportunity, and the ones who chooses not to take the offer, just continue browsing your site (and maybe they will sign up later when they realize how awesome your site is).

Timing and content

When you create your lightbox, you can decide exactly when, where, and how you want it to show. It is a good idea not to show it immediately when a visitor enters your site. Give them enough time to get an idea of what your site is about, and then show them your offer. Give your visitors an incentive to sign up. This could be exclusive deals, a free ebook, free shipping, discount vouchers, etc. Visitors are more likely to sign up when they are offered something in return for their email. This will furthermore engage and retain your visitors, and increase the average time they spend on your site.

Monitor your progress

With Sleeknote analytics, you can monitor the progress of your lightboxes. You can see which ones perform best on your site, and edit or delete the ones that don’t. Try and test different versions of your lightboxes to see which ones your visitors respond best to. You can also create slide-ins, popups, and modal boxes with Sleeknote.

A few tips for the road: always highlight the advantages of signing up; give your visitors an incentive to sign up; make sure it is easy to close the lightbox, so your visitors don’t get frustrated by it; there is always room for improvement. Test, test and test to ensure that you always have the highest performing lightboxes on your site. Start your 7 days free trial today, and se how easy it is to convert your visitors into subscribers.
