Overlays are available with our Essentials and Premium plans. We offer two overlay options: a two-screen Email Collector, and a single-screen Call To Action overlay. Overlays will show on desktops.
Before you begin creating an overlay, you will want to involve a design resource. You can download the overlay template here. If you want to create your own, just make sure the image is 500px by 331px and it's in either a PNG or GIF format. Please also see this article for recommendations on creating the images for your overlays.
Once you have your images, you're ready to get started!
Creating an Overlay within the editor
To begin, click on the green Create new... option in the upper right hand corner, then select "Create Email Collector Overlay" or "Create Call to Action Overlay".
Start by naming your overlay, then upload the first screen of your overlay.
From here we give you the ability to adjust the border color, and you can also customize the email entry field or call to action.
Call to Action:
When you have the first screen looking the way you want, click on the "Thank you" screen near the top of the editor. This screen is not present in the Call to Action overlay, since it only uses a single screen.
On this screen you can upload the "Success" image as well as customize the call to action button
When you've got your overlay customized to your liking, click on the green "Next" button to go to the "Targeting" section. To learn about all the targeting options, please visit this section in our Help Center.
