How to create a campaign that can be embedded as a widget in my site?
 

CREATE AN OPT-IN PAGE

 

Now this is the process where we will start creating Lead and Thank you page in LeadPages. The Lead Page will be the optin or entry point into the giveaway. People will sign up to the giveaway via this page.

 

When the participants enter their information and signup for the giveaway, they will be directed to a thank you page, which acknowledges their participating and motivates them to share the giveaway with their friends and circles to increase their chances of winning.

 

Let us start with the optin page. Here are the steps:

 

  1. On your LeadPages dashboard, click Create New Page:

 

 

  1. From the set of templates, use the template you desire. It is highly suggested to select from Drag & Drop menu. You can also filter by page types. In this case, select Opt-In.

 

 

  1. For this demo, we will be using Basic Centered Squeeze Page template. Click Use Template to select desired template.

 

 

  1. Name your page. We will be naming it as UV Integration LeadPages Optin in this case. Click Start Building button.

 

 

  1. Edit as desired and necessary. Remove the Call-To-Action button from your page since the Upviral widget will serve as the lead capture element by clicking the trash bin icon.

 

 

  1. From the Widgets menu, drag <> HTML widget on your page, replacing the CTA button that you deleted.

 

 

  1. Click the HTML box (the box that says “< >”) to pop up the HTML editor.


 

  1. Go back to your Upviral campaign and copy the code under “Step 5: Add the following code where you want your share widget to appear. It's the same code as provided on the 'Review & Publish' page, so it's possible you've already added this.” and paste in the HTML editor.

 

 

  1. Click the Save button. To see changes, click the Preview button at the top.

 

 

  1. Click the Tracking menu on the left side and go to Analytics tab.

 

 

 

  1. Go back to your Upviral campaign and copy the code under “Step 4: Add the following code to the header or footer of your lead capture page.” in “Immediately before the closing <body> tag” box.

 

 

  1. Click Save at the top of the widget menu and go back to the landing page.

 

 

  1. Click Publish to publish the page.

 

 

  1. Copy the link from the new window and place it on a notepad. To view the actual page, click View My Page.

 

 

From this point, an Optin page has been already set.
