Form Confirmation Pages!!!
Thank-you pages. Confirmation pages. Conversion success pages. Call them what you like, but they’re here and they rule hard.
Your confirmation dialog overlays your page
The way we’ve built the confirmation dialog windows is a little like Lightbox, where your message appears in a window overlaying your page, and the background fades to remove distractions. (Live preview).
Double conversion potential
Now you can whip up a confirmation page in minutes and start taking advantage of post-conversion opportunities. After all, they’re in the perfect “shopping mood” having just completed your form.

Add conversion tracking scripts
You can now add your Google AdWords conversion tracking code (and other 3rd party examples) directly to the conversion page using the Custom HTML component.
COMING SOON – File download management
This will allow you to give away eBooks, whitepapers, etc. as the prizes for your lead gen conversions.
The Friday Micro-Feature DevJam
Last week, we decided to dedicate Fridays to rocking out some smaller “micro-features” in between our regular roadmap items.
First up were multi-line form fields (textarea’s in HTML speak) which completes the set of standard form elements for your lead gen forms. (Live preview here).
Friday DevJam’s are all about intense slam style work where we all throw the roadmap onto the back seat and make things happen. Each week we’ll be looking at feedback and wish lists to uncover the next DevJam feature. We won’t be able to reinvent the wheel in a day, but hopefully we’ll get more of the small features you need delivered faster.
Got an idea for our next DevJam?
If there’s something you’re longing for – let us know on the forum here or Tweet about @Unbounce and include the hashtag #DevJam to jump in the conversation and suggest ideas.
Customer Showcase – Microsites
Now don’t get too crazy excited, we don’t have a new microsite feature or anything like that. But two cool customers have gone ahead and built them anyway.
Props to them for hacking something out of a system not really design to go there. Both are unique in their designs and I encourage you to explore them for some inspiration.
- First up is The Greatest Love of All Time (congratulations!)
- Followed by Spanish lessons for your iPod from General Linguistics
Nice work guys…
If anyone else has a cool landing page to share, or is doing something weird and wacky with Unbounce, we’d love to see it.
