The Platform.ly WordPress plugin provides you with a quick and easy way to add your Platformly optin forms and landing pages to your WordPress site or blog, as well as track events and more. The plugin uses the Platformly server located at https://www.platform.ly
To use the Platform.ly WordPress plugin, you must install it, activate it and enter an API key, which can be found inside the Platformly members area, in the ‘API Docs & Keys’ section.
After creating optin forms or landing pages with our WYSIWYG builders, you can add them to your WordPress site or blog in just a few clicks thanks to our plugin. Once set up, we monitor every action that your visitors take and provide you with a nice time-segmented report inside your Platformly account. The plugin supports both optin forms and landing pages created in Platform.ly, as explained below:
Pages are full-width and full-height templates that can be displayed on a particular slug or at a particular event. After you create your page inside Platform.ly, you can go and set it up to show on your site or blog. If you want to modify it later, all you have to do is edit it inside Platform.ly and save your changes. The latest version will automatically show where you embedded it, which means you don’t need to update the code.
We offer 3 types of pages:
1. Normal page – Just choose a slug name and we will show this page whenever a user visits that slug.
2. Homepage – If you select this option, it will replace your current homepage with the one of your choice, created in Platformly.
3. 404 page – Whenever a user visits a page that doesn’t exist on your site or blog, this page will be shown.
Optins are awesome for building up your email list.
We offer 2 types of optins:
1. Normal – With normal optin forms, you can choose a template or start with a blank canvas and create a single-page optin, with some text content and fields to ask for an email address or other contact details. You can map any field you want from Platform.ly.
2. Segmented – With segmented optin forms, you can build a multiple-pages optin. This means you can set up as many screens as you want and lead users through them as they click on different options that you set up on every screen. This is a great way to categorize your leads as they come, by adding certain tags to them, adding them to certain segments and/or using certain custom fields.
Inside the plugin, you will be able to choose how you want your optin form to be displayed. You can choose the location on the page (center, top-right, top-left, bottom-right, bottom-left), as well as the animation (pop, slide, fade) and when to show it. For example, you can show it after a certain amount of time (in seconds), after the user has scrolled to a certain percentage of the page or on exit (when the user moves his/her mouse to close the tab).
What is even cooler with Platformly optin forms is that you can adjust exactly how you want them to look on both desktop and mobile. You can build a form for desktop, make it automatically adjust for mobile and then modify the mobile version. You can have different fields to show on desktop and mobile, as well as different options. This also applies to pages, if you want to change something, you can do it from your Platformly account and the changes will immediately mirror on the site or blog where you have added the form.
