Triggering options - "When to show?"

You have a couple of options for the triggers of your Campaigns. Triggers are the rules which determine when your On-site Messages appear. You can use the trigger rules (When to show) on their own, or you can further segment your visitors with additional rules (who should see the On-site Message). The trigger rules are the following:

1) On exit-intent

You can set up the popup to only appear on exit intent under the Campaign Settings, “When should the popup appear?” option.

By using this setting,  the popup will only appear when a visitor attempts to leave the website, on “exit intent”.

This setting is currently only available on PC:

The option is a great opportunity to communicate one last offer to the visitors before they leave the website to revert them back.

2) After ‘X’ second(s)

You can set up your popup to only show up after a visitor has already spent X seconds on the webpage. 

This setting is useful when you want to show the popup to visitors who have been reading your page for at least X seconds. 

If you set this to 0 seconds, it will function as an “entry popup”, meaning that it will appear immediately when a visitor lands on your page. We do not recommend using this option because this can really disturb your visitors.  Always try to follow the behavior of your visitors and try to set up the popup to appear at the right time. You can monitor the behavior of your visitors within Google Analytics (you can read more on Google Analytics and OptiMonk integration in the following article: https://support.optimonk.com/hc/en-us/articles/204654642-How-do-I-monitor-my-OptiMonk-performance-with-Google-Analytics-). Don’t be afraid to use this setting! 

By selecting this option and setting it up based on your visitors’ behavior, you can make sure that the popup will only appear when the visitors already took a closer look at your offers and somehow familiarized themselves with the content of your website. 

This setting is available both on PC and Mobile: 

3) After scrolling down ‘X’ percent

You can set up your popup to only show up after the visitor scrolled down X percent on the webpage. 

This setting is useful when you want to show the popup to visitors who have been scrolling down at least X percent on the page. 

Similarly to the “X seconds spent on the site” option, this setting will ensure that the visitor will only see the popup after they already spent some time surfing the page and have seen something from your content. 

If you have a blog, this setting can be very useful, because you can communicate an offer once your visitor has already read the first part of the story. 

With the help of this setting, you will be able to catch the attention of active visitors. 

This setting is available both on PC and Mobile. 

4) On Click setting

 You can set up your popup to only show up after the visitor clicked on a given element defined by you. 

This setting is useful when you want to show the popup to those visitors only who clicked on a particular part of your website - a box, link, banner, etc. 

Use this setting if you have an interesting e-book and you place its link to your blog - you can create a campaign and set up in a way to only appear to those visitors who clicked on the link and can make the e-book downloadable for those who signed up via the popup. 

With this setting, the popup will behave like a "mini landing page". 

With this setting, you will be able to segment your visitors even further by only showing them offers related to a page element that they have already shown some interest in. 

This setting is available both on PC and Mobile, and you can add as many elements as you wish.

5) After ‘X’ inactive seconds

You can set up your popup to only show up to visitors who have spent x inactive seconds on the site. This setting is useful because it catches the attention of inactive visitors and there is a high chance that you will be able to activate them with the help of a special offer popping up unexpectedly. 

If, after analyzing your visitors’ behavior, you conclude that the inactivity on your page is relatively high, you can use this option to activate your visitors. When you set this to 0 seconds, it will function as an "entry popup” – it will appear immediately when a visitor lands on your page. We do not recommend using this option because this can really disturb your visitors.  Always try to follow the behavior of your visitors and try to set up the popup to appear at the right time. 

This setting is available both on PC and Mobile. 

6) After a JavaScript event  

This advanced triggering option allows you to fire the popup once a specific JavaScript event activates.
