Before you start sending campaigns, you need to capture subscribers. With PushOwl, store visitors are shown a browser prompt once they land on your store that gets them to subscribe.

You can customize your browser prompt in a few ways:

  • Add a time delay to your browser prompt so that it is shown to store visitors a few seconds after they land.

  • Add an overlay to provide context to your promotions, promising them a discount for subscribing. To add an overlay message, follow these steps.

Enable your welcome notification and customize the copy to make it sound like your brand and leave a great first impression.
