Frequently Asked Questions

How are Impressions (Visitors) counted for Inline campaigns in my analytics reports?

An Inline campaign’s impression is counted when the campaign visually appears within the browser window to your visitor.

If the campaign is placed below the fold of your site the visitor will need to scroll the campaign into view before an impression is counted.


I’ve added the OptinMonster Global Embed code to my site but my Inline campaign isn’t showing up.

You’ll want to be sure to place the Inline campaign’s embed code directly within your page content where it should appear to your visitors. This is required even if you’ve already added the Global Embed Code to your site.

Follow our guide for embedding Inline campaigns on your site.

Why does my Inline campaign’s design appear squished on the page?

Inline campaigns will automatically stretch to fit the width of the content area they are embedded within.

If you’re embedding the campaign within a narrower block of content on your site than the campaign appears in the builder it can cause significant visual differences between the two views.

We recommend you adjust the max-width of the campaign in the builder to more closely resemble the size of the block you will be embedding the campaign in on your site. This will make it easier to adjust the design to fit how it will appear on your site.

Why am I missing some Display Rules for my Inline campaign?

Inline campaigns will visually appear when the page is loaded and cannot be configured to use conditions like Time Delay, Scroll Percentage, Exit-Intent, InactivitySensor or MonsterLink to trigger their appearance. Those options will not be available when setting the Display Rules for your Inline campaign.

OptinMonster has transformed our business. Before integrating their optins, our clients saw a 2% conversion rate from web traffic, which is slightly above the standard for their industry. With the integration of OptinMonster’s lightbox popup, exit-intent technology, split testing, and other tools, our client’s conversion rates soared by an unprecedented 500%. They attracted substantially more customers while spending less on digital advertising. Their success propelled them to the top of their markets, outperforming national chains and other medical spas with much bigger marketing budgets. Our client’s success in their market has distinguished us in our own. We are now one of the most sought-after marketing firms in the industry of aesthetic medicine. We know that the integration of OptinMonster, more than any other tool or marketing strategy, has supported this growth and achievement.

Through OptinMonster’s exit-intent popups, we have more than doubled our sales conversion rate. Best of all is the compound effect of using OptinMonster over a long period of time—more conversions mean more customers, which means more word of mouth.
