Create A Call To Action With The Welcome Message Feature

The Welcome Message feature can do so much more than just welcome new visitors to your blog.  This feature is a great way to create a call to action for your readers, whether it is to have readers sign up for an email list, to promote an online class, or to invite readers to follow your social media accounts.  If you're wondering where is a good place to set up a newsletter, we enjoy Mailchimp.

Example of embedded message

You can set up your announcement by going to Settings > Basics > Welcome Message.  Your message can appear only for new visits or it can appear for every visit.  In either case, the visitor can close the message after having read it.   Your message can appear as a popover message or embedded at the top of the blog content.
