STEP 2: Create a popup

  1. From within the campaign, select the Assets tab and then click + Add Asset.
  1. Select Add a Popup.
  1. Enter a name for the popup and begin building your content. A popup should be an enticing offer that incents your visitor to want to give their email or phone number. Remember to save as you go.
You can use the online platform called Canva to create your own beautiful images and then drop your images into your popup content. Be sure to size them at 800x600px!

STEP 3: Create an email or text response

  1. From within the campaign, select the Assets tab and click + Add Asset.
  1. Select Add an Email or Add a Text Message. We suggest matching your response with what you are asking for or giving away. For example, if you are giving away a guide or report, respond with an email. If you are giving away a discount code and asking for their mobile phone, you might want to respond with a text message.
  1. If you chose an email, select + New Email or start with a Pre-Built template. If you chose a text message, begin naming and crafting your message. Once your content has been created, click Save & Close.
This asset should include the materials or discount codes you promised in the popup. We also suggest a series of follow-ups or 'drip' content that drives them into your store or to make a purchase.

  1. From the Properties window for the selected action, choose the text message or email to send and any sending preferences. Once selected, click Update.

  1. If you are sending out additional 'drip' messages, you will next choose the Trigger, Pause Automation and select the time frame you would like to wait before sending the next message. Then repeat steps 4-6 from above until for all messages you want to send.
  2. Click Save Changes from the top right of the screen. This will prompt you to name your automation and give it an optional description.
  3. Next, click the <-- back arrow next to the automation name to return to the settings for the automation.
