How to Create Pop-ups That Collect Phone Numbers


Picreel lets you set up website overlays that can collect required user data, i.e., collect phone numbers, email addresses, and more. 


Benefits of creating pop-ups that collect phone numbers:


1. Build a contact list of user's phone numbers for retargeting

2. Reach out to users through an SMS (short message service)


To create a template that collects phone numbers instead of emails using the Template Editor:


Step 1: In your Picreel account, go to Campaigns>>New Campaign


Step 2: Select a pre-defined template that collects email addresses


Selecting a template to edit


Step 3: Click on 'Fields & Text.' Select 'Phone.' Also, edit the overlay text as per new requirements.
