Hi Richard, how's life? 😉

Finally found some time again to get my idea/site (shiftinspiration.com) up and going. So have been thinking a bit yesterday...

Right now, if a visitor wants to download a free poster at my site (like here: https://www.shiftinspiration.com/blog/start-let-the-adventure-begin), he needs to leave his e-mail address. After that he gets the file. That's great. However, does it make sense if this same user needs to leave his e-mail address again next week, when he wants to download another file? And a week later? And a week later?

It only makes (some kind of) sense if the link to the file gets send to the e-mail address, instead of a download starting immediately after leaving an e-mail address.

You've suggested such a feature already here: https://squareonemedia.co.uk/community/forums/topics/what-i-miss/#topic-reply-370

Another option would be: asking for an e-mail address in the popup, but not as a required field for downloading. Than it would be more something like: 'You can download the file in a moment; if you want to keep up with the newest downloads, then please leave your e-mail address and get a newsletter every week!'.

Something like that...

What do you think?

Cheers,
Marc

    Yea we've discussed this before, I've been mulling over a few ideas and have some (other) big ones rattling around my head at the moment.

    I won't say too much yet, but I will say this feature sounds like it would be perfect for an add-on to the main plugin 😉

    Not sure yet mate, need to map out a framework for it and other things. Let's put a time on it though, say 4 weeks.

    Lol that's true mate.

    We have similar ones. Rome wasn't built in a day. Good things come to those who wait. Nothing that's worth having comes easy.

    Inspiration for a Tuesday!
