How to Create an After Post or Inline Optin

With OptinMonster, you can create an After Post or Inline optin in just a few easy steps. Make sure you have an OptinMonster Plus or Pro subscription before we begin.

  1. Create a New Optin Campaign
  2. Design your Optin
  3. Start the Campaign
  4. Embed your Optin

Also, if you haven’t reviewed the general process for creating an optin, we encourage you to check out our Creating Your First Optin documentation.


Step 1 – Create a New After Post or Inline Optin Campaign

From your OptinMonster Dashboard, you need to click the Create New Optin button.

Select the Create New Optin button from your OptinMonster Dashboard to begin creating your optin.

On the next screen, you’ll be prompted to do the following:

  1. Optin Campaign Title: Give your Optin Campaign a Title.
  2. Website: Select the Website you’re creating your optin for or add a new website.
  3. Select Your Design: Select your optin type. In this case, select the After Post design.
  4. Select the Template you wish to use.

The first step to creating your optin is giving it a Title, selecting the website(s) to show it on and choosing the optin template.
For now, select the Action Template by clicking Use this Template on the bottom of the template.

Note: you can change the template for your optin in the builder at any time from inside the Optin panel.

Step 2 – Design Your After Post or Inline Optin

The next step is to design your After Post or Inline optin according to the steps in Creating Your First Optin.

You can customize your After Post / Inline optin in the optin builder.

When you are finished, be sure to save your optin and congratulations, you’re all done!


Step 3 – Start the Campaign

When you create a new optin, it’s Paused by default.

Once you’ve finished configuring your optin and it’s ready to be displayed on your site, hover over the status bar in the top menu and choose Start Campaign.

You can toggle the optin's status from Paused to Live in the optin builder by selecting the Start Campaign button from the top toolbar.

Once your campaign is live you’ll see this status reflected in the top menu bar.

The status of your optin is displayed in the top toolbar of the optin builder as either Live or Paused.

Need to pause your campaign again? You can do that in the optin builder too; simply hover over the status bar again and this time choose Pause Campaign.

You can Pause your optin campaign within the builder by selecting the Pause Campaign button from the top toolbar.


Step 3 – Embed Your After Post or Inline Optin on Your Website

You can click the Embed button at the top of your builder window to get the embed code. Then you can copy and paste that embed code wherever you desire your After Post or Inline optin to appear.
