A welcome gate is an effective way to boost conversions of any call to action on your site. In fact, welcome gates are a popular feature with plugins like OptinMonster for creating high-converting email optins. The basic idea behind a welcome gate is to hide the content of the webpage with a fullscreen call to action. This forces the user to interact with the CTA before viewing the intended page.
In this tutorial, we are going to show you a quick and easy way to add a custom welcome gate to your web page without using a plugin. This may come in handy for boosting the conversions of your CTAs on landing pages.
