How to Redirect Website Traffic Using Overlays

 

Picreel lets you redirect your website visitors to pages containing seasonal offers or provide better product choices using overlays. To make it simple, users landing on a certain page can be presented with a ‘redirect traffic’ popup that has a link to another page where you want them to land next.

 

Benefits of guiding visitors to a link:

 

1. Help them make better product choices

2. Increase conversion rates by displaying relevant offers

 

Here's what a website overlay to redirect traffic would look like:
