To create a welcome gate in WordPress, you can use a plugin such as OptinMonster. Once the plugin has been installed and turned on, you can start a new campaign and choose the “Fullscreen Welcome Gate” template. From there, you can change how the welcome gate looks and what it says, as well as set rules for when it should show up for visitors. You can also use the plugin to make forms to collect email addresses, connect to email marketing services, and keep track of conversions.
OptinMonster is a popular lead generation plugin for WordPress. It lets you make and customize different types of opt-in forms, like lightbox popups, floating bars, and welcome gates, so that website visitors can sign up for your email list or buy something. The plugin also has things like A/B testing, page-level targeting, and exit-intent technology that can help your opt-in forms work better. Also, OptinMonster works with a number of email marketing services, such as Mailchimp, AWeber, and Constant Contact, making it easy to manage and grow your email list.
