Introducing Lead Capture v2

Getting lead magnets in front of your audience is way more difficult than it needs to be.

In fact, the process is so complicated that it’s almost certainly costing you leads. Today we’re announcing a massive update to our Lead Capture features to fix this.

More Formats

Until now there’s only been a couple of different ways that you can publish your lead magnet with Beacon. We decided to add a bunch of new options so you don’t have to export your lead magnet to a different piece of software to get it in front of your audience. Just publish with the click of a button.

Horizontal Bar

Video Demo

An eye-catching bar that can be pinned to the top or bottom of the browser window. The opt-in form appears when the user clicks the bar.

Inline Form

Video Demo

The form is embedded directly in the web page so there is no popup.

Popup Delay

Video Demo

The popup form will appear after the user has scrolled down the page or been on the page a certain length of time.

And we’ve still got our old favourites like:

Content Upgrades

Video Demo

Your call to action will be embedded in a web page. Once people opt-in via the popup they will get the lead magnet via email.

Link Lock

Video Demo

Share your lead magnet with a single link. People will have to share their email address before they can read it.

More Form Fields

You can now gather more information in your lead capture forms. Things like first name and last name to help ensure that your future email campaigns have the personal touch.

Social Upsell

Every interaction with your readers is an opportunity.

With our new social upsell features you can encourage people who have downloaded your lead magnet to share it with their network.

If your lead magnet contains great content (which it should!) you’ll be reaching a bigger audience in no time.

Single / Double Opt-In

With online privacy being more important than ever it’s important to ensure the integrity of your email list. You can now toggle between single and double opt-ins for each of your lead capture forms.

More Cover Image Formats

As we all know by now people definitely do judge books by their cover so it’s important that you make a good first impression. To help you with this we’ve added some more cover image formats to help your lead magnet look fancy:

Phew!

That’s a lot of improvements for one blog post! Have you tried any of these features yet? Want to see us add anything else? Just let me know in the comments – we’re all ears!

    How are these in the mobile view? I seemed to have some issues a little while back with the mobile version of my Lead Capture v1…

    • Kevin McGrath

      Hey James, we have improved the mobile versions of all the opt-in forms as well. If you load any of our recent blog posts on mobile you’ll be able to see the updated Content Upgrades in action.

  • SUPER COOL. Love it!

    Do the optin forms integrate with active campaign [or other autoresponders]?

    • Kevin McGrath

      Thanks Sebastian! Yes, we integrate with ActiveCampaign and all the other most popular auto responders. If you need any integrations that we don’t have yet just let us know.

      • ELizabeth Jamieson

        OMG – did you just eliminate the need for systems like OptInmonster?

        • Kevin McGrath

          Yep!

  • John Creech

    I bought this deal through Appsumo literally years ago. Haven’t used it, but knew it would be super helpful in the future. I’m now finally starting my own blog and business and look forward to using Beacon to create my lead magnet! Do those of us that bought the appsumo deal have access to all of these features?

    • Kevin McGrath

      Yes indeed! You have full access to all these features.

        You’re the man, @kevmcg:disqus
