You can use it to share discounts, special offers, and perks as a reward. This kind of optins are proven to increase engagement and sales.
In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to easily add spin to win optin to your WordPress site or WooCommerce store.
What is Spin to Win Optin?
Spin to Win optin is a signup form or a discount coupon wheel which adds gamification to your website. Your users play a game to win discounts, unlock special offers, or access downloads after playing the game.
Case studies have shown that gamified optins get conversion rates as high as 30% or more.
The reason for that is quite simple. These gamified optins are fun, interactive, and instantly get users’ attention.
With game rewards and coupons, you also encourage users to complete the game they started by using the reward they have earned (i.e making a purchase using a discount they won).
That being said, let’s see how you can easily add spin to win optins in WordPress and WooCommerce.
