Lightbox Popup

Lightbox popups are one of the best ways to grab your visitor’s attention, build your email list, and share a targeted ad message.

OptinMonster’s industry-leading lightbox popups let you deliver a targeted message at just the right time for maximum engagement. Lightbox popups are proven to work for email lead capture as well as increasing sales conversion. OptinMonster customers have seen their conversions increase by as much as 600%.

When you show a lightbox popup, visitors have to make a decision. There are no distractions because your other content fades into the background. That’s why lightbox campaigns convert so well. You can make your lightbox popups even more noticeable by combining it OptinMonster’s MonsterEffects™ (animations and sound effects).

Timing is everything to maximize the effectiveness of your popups. Just as important as the content itself.

Trigger a popup at the wrong time and you won’t get the results you want. Our modal window popups let you ask visitors to subscribe when they’re most likely to agree.

OptinMonster includes several triggers so you can show your lightbox popup campaign at just the right time: time-based interval, scroll trigger, and our signature Exit-Intent® Technology that detects when visitors are about to leave your site, so you can show them a lightbox popup just before they do.

Increase Engagement with Lightbox Popup Targeting

OptinMonster also gives you the flexibility to use other rules to trigger your lightbox campaigns. With Page-Level Targeting, Geo-Location Targeting, and Device-Based Targeting, you have ultimate control over who sees your lightbox popups, when, and on what pages.

Features like these help everyone from publishers to eCommerce sites. Publishers can show content related to specific pages and blog categories and eCommerce retailers can reduce cart abandonment by showing discount offers before people leave their site.

You can also show lightbox popups based on visitors’ interests, using OptinMonster’s behavioral automation rules like Onsite Follow-up, Onsite Retargeting, and Cookie Retargeting. This lets you keep drawing in your visitors with increasingly targeted offers. You can even show different popup windows according to where your visitors came from by using our Referrer Detection feature.

Since OptinMonster values user experience above everything else, you can use our display rules to make sure that once someone subscribes or redeems an offer, they never have to see the same popup again.

I hate popups, so I was hesitant to try one on my site. But the results from OptinMonster exit-intent popup speak for themselves. I doubled my subscription rate immediately without annoying my users. I haven’t had a single complaint. My only regret is that I didn’t start using OptinMonster sooner. I can only imagine how many subscribers I could have added to my email list! If you have a blog, then I highly recommend you start using OptinMonster. I’ve researched them all, and it’s the best in market.
