You can choose from a variety of campaign types made available. This could be a pop-up, floating bar, full-screen mode, and many more.
After taking a decision on which templates you want you can now proceed to select the site you want to use it on. The Optin monster plugin provides users with various options on how to modify its notification bar.
Its design tab provides the users with options for changing the style and color of fonts or texts and also allows him or them to decide where he or she wants the notification bar to be placed on the page.
Under the” display rules” tab, it allows the user to select the specific pages on which the notification bar should appear. On the “integrations” menu it allows you to input certain stuff like an Email address.
