The Callout Bar is a customizable toolbar that floats at the top of a website and makes it easy to get a visitors attention, increase email opt-ins, and drive traffic to specific pages on your site.
This bar makes it simple to direct users to a visible call-to-action that you define. In less than five minutes, you can be up and running with the Callout Bar on your WordPress website. The Callout Bar is a customizable toolbar that floats at the top or bottom of a website and makes it easy to get a visitors attention, generate opt-ins, and drive traffic to specific pages on your site. Our plugin is easy to setup, it’s highly customizable (font style, font color, bar color, bar height, etc.), and we have three actions so you can easily change how your Callout Bar functions.
If you’re not looking to generate a contact submission, email sign-up or capture a lead, the Callout Bar can also be used for simple messaging or navigation. By changing the default setting, you can customize your Callout Bar to either provide new action (so that it’s text only), or direct it to navigate to a specific URL.
When customizing the Callout Bar action, it’s also easy to load your own form code to deliver a custom experience for your site.
When you use the Callout Bar form built by ContactUs.com, you can also get alerts via SMS (for premium users), email or direct the signups to 3rd party apps like MailChimp, Constant Contact, Google Docs, Zoho, SugarCRM, and many more (21 in all!).
In short, the Callout Bar can supercharge the engagement process with your users, increase opt-ins, and more effectively drive traffic to specific pages on your website.
When you download and install our plugin, you’ll be prompted to create an account, which will give you free access to our integrated contact management app hosted by ContactUs.com. Our web app also has additional customization options for admins who are creating forms, and we’re always adding new features to make your lead generation and contact management efforts easier and more effective.
We have premium (paid) plans with advanced features, but our standard features are always free, and they include unlimited form submissions.
