Published in Blog by Tassos Marinos on Friday, 05 May 2017

EngageBox 3.3 is released and packs new features such as the latest trend in CRO, the Welcome Mat. Also, the close button can now be customized at a great extend and finally you can use Smart Tags to create boxes with even more dynamic content.

The Page Slide effect (Welcome Mat)

Welcome Mats are proven to boost your conversions, whichever they may be. The Page Slide effect is a very popular request because of its increased effectiveness and use from popular websites.


With the Page Slide effect, your box will slide in from the top of the page, instead of covering your content. This way your users can just scroll down to reach your content without even having to close it beforehand.

Customize the close button

You can now choose between having a close button as an icon or as an image of your choosing. Choosing the icon option gives you the opportunity to treat it as a text element which entails the perks of getting to choose your font size, the active and the hover color.
