Here’s a seamless way to gain email subscribers and get new customers with this awesome tool! If you’re serious about building your email list, you have got to check this out!
Hello, and welcome to another quick video in our series which guides you through some of the most popular and some of our favorite WordPress plugins! In this video I’ll be talking about SumoMe Scroll Box.
So first of all, Scroll Box is completely free. It makes it super easy for you to gain email subscribers and get new customers. Most people have email addresses now, which make things a lot simpler when it comes to keeping in touch. So imagine if you can keep in contact with all those visitors and get them to come back over and over again! It’s pretty much guaranteed traffic to your website and it’s a win-win for you and your visitors. It’s a polite way of asking for their email addresses because Scroll Box doesn’t pop up. It slides gently from wherever you want it to, so it’s much less in your face.
Lets get straight into it so I can start showing you how you can use this plugin to benefit your own business!
So, how do you start using Scroll Box? It’s really easy! The first thing you need is to make sure you have installed the SumoMe plugin, which will allow you to then install Scroll Box onto your website or blog. You can do this easily by going to Plugins, and “Add New”, searching for SumoMe, installing it, and activating it.
You’ll then find a little icon hidden at the top right, click this and register with SumoMe.
Once you’ve done that you’ll have access to all their apps in their store! These are all extremely powerful and completely free! We have quick dedicated videos on each of these apps so check those out if you’d like to learn about the others, such as Share. Share makes it quick and easy for your visitors to share your content to their social media such as Facebook and Twitter with the click of a button!
In the SumoMe store you’re looking for Scroll Box, here it is. Click it, then click FREE, and it’s installed. Easy!
To start using Scroll Box find the icon at the top right again, click the crown and click on Scroll Box, and you’re now at the dashboard, with a toolbar on the left.
Scroll Box is fully customizable. It looks like you paid thousands for a designer to custom build it for you. You have total control over the background and button color, text color and font. You can completely match Scroll Box to the design of your site! It’s also mobile optimized because most site’s traffic is 30% mobile so this is very important! If a visitor can’t get your website to work, they will look elsewhere.
So, on the left you have your toolbar, which has the setup and controls for your Scroll Box, such as “Design”. Here you customize how the subscribe and success boxes look. Here you can change the heading and main text, all colors, fonts, and sizes. You also have “Templates” at the top, which has ready-made templates for you to use and customize. To access these you need to pay for the Pro version of Scroll Box, for now though, the free version works great! Try using a lead magnet with your Scroll Box as an incentive for visitors to submit their email addresses. If you want to learn more about lead magnets we have you covered!
“Behavior” is where the settings are for when the Scroll Box will appear, it’s frequency, and what happens after someone submits their email. “Trigger Percent” is how far down the page until scroll box appears, and you can choose which direction the box will slide in from.
There are also display rules if you want the scroll box to only appear on certain pages, or pages with certain content.
You can also connect your email marketing services such as MailChimp to Scroll Box and it integrates with one click. The emails you collect will transfer directly into your email marketing service.
Scroll Box is capable of doubling your email subscribers so we really recommend you start using this awesome free plugin!
