How To Increase Conversions with Multi-Step Popups

Many people think that single-step optin is the best way to increase conversion.

But it is exactly the opposite. Using multi-step popups increases the conversions and revenue for a website.

As per the Zeigarnik effect, people usually finish the process they started.

What is a Multi-Step Popup?

A multi-step popup is a popup where you will have multiple steps instead of a single optin option.

In other words, instead of a single step, the visitor will go through 2 or 3 steps to complete the action.

The user clicks a link that is followed by a popup. Completes the call to action and a thank you message is displayed.

A typical yes/no multistep popup is shown below.

Once the popup is completed, you need to customize the success page.

If you are using the popup to grow your list, you can add a simple “Thank you” message on the success page after the visitor’s signup.

If you are re-directing the users to different pages or sites, then you need not worry about the success page.

For this tutorial, we are creating a multi-step popup using MonsterLink.

When the user clicks on your MonsterLink, a popup will appear.

Click on the “Display Rules” button at the top of the editor.

Then click on Copy MonsterLink™ Code. Your code will be copied and you can embed it wherever you like it.

The MonsterLink will be in an HTML embed code and will look like the one below:

<a href=”” target=”_blank”>Click Me!</a>

Sometimes, you would need just the HTML form and not the embed code. In that case, you can just copy the HTML link within that double quotes.

The simple HTML link will look like this:

You can add any anchor text to this link. Whenever any user clicks on this link, a popup will appear.

Just go ahead and click on Save and then Publish the campaign.

You can expect an increase in your conversion rate due to the following reasons:

  1. People who click on your link will have more interest in the content of your popup.
  2. As per the Zeigarnik effect, people will definitely finish the process they have started.
