Using a Wheel of Fortune Sign-Up to Grow Your Email List
Gamification, the tactic of motivating customers to behave in certain ways in exchange for taking a specified action, is a marketing tactic increasingly being used by retailers today. Often, gamification can be found inside of marketing emails, such as by clicking an image to reveal a “present.” It creates a fun, interactive element for subscribers.
Gamification can also be applied to your website in order to grow your email and SMS list. Using a Wheel of Fortune allows you to gamify signing up for your email and SMS programs. The best part—it is compatible with other pop-ups and sign-up boxes, so the combination of several forms can be used in each store based on the situation.
How Does the Wheel of Fortune Work?
It is an interactive signup form that invites website visitors to enter their data (name, email address, date of birth, etc.) for an opportunity to spin a wheel and win a prize. Prizes can be various things, the most popular prizes are discounts of different sizes. However, you may also include other giveaways or free shipping.
The form has a small widget as a sign-up box does, and it can be displayed according to flexible targeting rules. For example, it may occur only on the particular product page, show up as an exit-intent dialog box, etc.
Like all the rest of the forms on Omnisend, Wheel of Fortune has preset designs and text and can be enabled without additional customization. However, if you require more advanced Wheel of Fortune behavior and settings, you can choose from many options.
