Share Step #2 – Creating a BOX

After creating your BRAND , the next step is to create a BOX

‘Boxes’ are the primary overlay used in Share, and appear as a box in a chosen location on your cloned site.

NOTE – You can also use Engage or Amplify overlays instead of Boxes – for more information see CAMPAIGNS for more information

To create a Box, simply click on ‘Share’ in your main dashboard and then ‘Boxes’. Then ‘Add new Box’

  1. Select your chosen brand to be attached to the box.
  2. Select your Box ‘Type’ : ¬†Options are –

  • Optin – For collecting email leads from your campaigns
  • Traffic – For redirecting traffic to your own site
  • Button – A different way of directing traffic to your own site
  • Text link – A third way of directing traffic to your own site
  • Retargeting – An invisible box that utilizes your Facebook, Google Analytics etc targeting pixels. (NOTE – Retargeting pixels can be added to the other box types)

3. Create your Box settings –

– For Optin boxes

  • Add a label (this is for your own reference only
  • Choose screen position
  • Choose the number of seconds delay before your box appears on the site – We recommend between 5 and 10 seconds – this gives enough time for the box to appear ‘distinctly’ from the main page, but not too much that the viewer might leave before the box appears
  • ‘Title Text’ refers to the text that your viewer will see in the main header
  • The ’email list’ is the list in your autoresponder where any sign-ups will go to. Choose from the drop down list. If you haven’t already integrated your autoresponder, see here
  • ‘Thankyou page URL’ is the site to redirect to once your viewer has completed the optin form (e.g. YOUR site)
  • The Submit button text is the text that appears on the button that the user clicks to submit their email text (e.g. ‘Click now!’)
  • The email placeholder is the text that appears in the box your viewer needs to enter their email address. We recommend you leave it as standard (‘Email address’)

– For traffic, Button or Text Link Boxes

  • ‘Title Text’ refers to the text that your viewer will see in the main header
  • The link URL is the redirect for your main site (this can be different from your ‘Brand’ website)
  • The Link text is the text in your button, text link or redirect area
  • The link image can be uploaded from the Cloud or locally.

For retargeting/pixel boxes and the retargeting / pixel sections in all other boxes.

  • Simply copy and paste your retargeting pixel or code into the box and activate the campaign as normal.

4. Styling

You can change the styling on your box to:

  • Default Small box
  • Square – With squared edges to a standard small box
  • One-piece – With the Brand logo, image and text/CTA buttons melded into one element
  • Full-width – The entire width of your host site display screen

PRO users can also change the font and background colours of the elements using ‘Skin’¬†

AFTER YOU HAVE COMPLETED ALL SECTIONS REMEMBER TO SAVE YOUR BOX UNDER THE ‘STYLING’ SECTION.
