You can create beautiful popups using professionally designed and proven to convert, pre-built popup and opt-in templates to start converting leads in seconds or build your own with a completely blank canvas using easy-to-use drag and drop popup builder.
As a lead generation platform, forms play an important role in increasing the bottom of your funnel. Gist's forms are also automatically integrated with Gist's CRM, or the 'Contacts' page, where you can find all your customer information, activity, and communication history, together in one place.
You can add a form to your website and start sending all your new leads directly to your Gist account. You can also use Gist's robust automation platform to tightly integrate forms and your email marketing in just a few steps.
There are six types of forms that you can add to your website - embedded, lightbox, hellobar, bumper, fullpage takeover, and welcome mat.
Each form type has a different use case, and you can use one or more of them for your website depending on what you want to show on which page.
Embedded forms - A form you can embed directly on your site pages.
Popup modals - Center screen popups that appear on top of page content.
Sticky bars - Small banners at the top of the page.
Slide-in boxes - Small boxes that slide in from the side or bottom of the page.
Fullpage takeover - A full-screen call to action that triggers based on user behavior.
Welcome mat - Full-screen call to actions that shows when visitors land on your site.
Using our exit intent technology, advanced page-level targeting, powerful segmentation engine and behavior automation, you can show the perfect popup offer to the right people at the exact right time and maximize your website conversions.
