How to Set the Exact Second When Overlay Shows Up


Bombarding visitors with a pop-up as soon as they land on your website may negatively impact the user experience. Picreel lets you control the timing of your pop-up campaigns to ensure it has the maximum impact.


By setting the exact second when your overlay should show up, you can:


1. Prevent visitors from bouncing off the site, thus lowering your bounce rate.

2. Ensure visitors have consumed some part of your website before an overlay pops up.


To set the exact second for your overlay to show up:


Step 1: In your Picreel account,

  • Navigate to ‘Campaigns’ from the dashboard


Navigating to the Campaigns list


  • Move your cursor to the campaign from the list you wish to set the timer and click ‘Settings.

Step 2: On the campaign settings page,

  • Click on ‘WHEN OVERLAY APPEARS’ to open the dropdown menu.

  • Click to open ‘Trigger Options

  • Move down to ‘After ‘X’ second(s).’ Set the status as active and enter the number of seconds.

That is all about setting the exact second after which the chosen overlay will show up.
