Ideas to turn your BetaList visitors into users

There are many ideas you explore to help you turn these visitors into users.

Offer a discount

Offering a discount might just be the thing to get them through the door. And it makes sense too. After all, your product is in an early stage so giving a discount to beta users might be a good idea. It’s also something you can set up with BetaList. Repeating your offer on your marketing site is just no-brainer.

Ask for their email

Not every visitor will have the time no create an account right on the spot. Have them leave their email so you can reach out at a later time is a good idea.

Have them book a demo with you

Demoing your product to leads is a great way to get a conversation with them started. It’s a great way to show how your product works and you get to ask them a lot of questions. A great tool to have them book a time with you are our friends at Savvycal.

Target BetaList visitors with rules

Whatever idea you go with it, it is super simple to set up with Helptail. The powerful rules features allows you to show your banner, modal or form to BetaList visitors only. Here’s how to go about it.

When you have set up your Stream, under Appearance & Settings, scroll to Rules. Check out the docs about rules to learn more about how rules work.

Below Show Stream choose the Trigger “Referrer”. For the Operator select “Is” and as a Value enter “”. You can also set up a rule to check that the current_url ends with ?ref=betalist. This URL param is always appended to the the outgoing URLs from BetaList.

And that’s all you have to do to target only BetaList visitors on your site. Hope you have a superb launch! 🚀
