How to Pause a Campaign

How to Pause a Campaign

OptinMonster makes it easy to pause and publish campaigns to control when they appear on your site.

In this article, you’ll learn how to pause a campaign.

Before You Start

Here are some things to know before you begin:

  • Pausing campaigns allows you to easily turn off a campaign without having to modify the embed code on your site.
  • If you are using the WordPress plugin to sync your OptinMonster campaigns, paused campaigns will not sync to the plugin. To sync a campaign to WordPress using the plugin you will need to publish the campaign in OptinMonster.

Pause Campaign

To pause a campaign, follow these steps:

  1. From the Campaign view, locate the campaign you wish to pause.
  2. Toggle the green button to pause the campaign. The button will turn red once the campaign is paused.

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.
