Capture email addresses of your viewers

Updated over a week ago

The Email Capture Gate feature is a marketing tool with the goal of collecting email leads. It will lock the video at a desired point and require an email address to be entered before continuing with the video.

Connect it to your favorite Email Service Provider and collect the email addresses directly to that platform. To find out more about which integrations are available with Spotlightr check our article on supported integrations.

Here is a live example of the Email Gate:

Configuring Email Gates

To configure this feature, simply edit an individual video and navigate to your Player tab, then Advanced Options >> Lead Generation:

Lock Time

First you'll need to configure the time in the video you want to present the gate. Here we will choose :03 seconds:

Lock Content

Next, add content to your Lock Title, Description, and Button:

Lock Settings

Then configure any additional Settings that you require.

In this example, we are going to check the box for validate the email as well as connect to our autoresponder. We use a 3rd party provider that can detect fake email addresses and has about a 95% success rate.

Once you check off the autoresponder, you will select the name of the integration you want to use. In this example we are using our Mailchimp integration and choosing the Wordpress Students list (now called Audience in Mailchimp).

For instructions on setting up different integrations, please check our Integrations Category:

Then be sure to click on the "Add List" button. That will result in a confirmation with check box next to it and an icon to disconnect the integration:

Lock Styles

The colors of the lock are all configured in your Theme >> Player Colors >> Dialog Colors. Please check this article for more information

In this example we switched a few colors to use Spotlightr green:
