How to Create A Simple Slide Out Lead Generation Form


In this tutorial I will show you how to add a simple slide out effect to your lead generation forms. This technique has been most widely used on blog posts to prompt users to subscribe when the reach the bottom of the post.


The HTML is simple. You can write your own form code, or you can use a generated form from your marketing automation or email marketing system such as MailChimp, Active Campaign, Marketo or Pardot.

Wrap your form in a DIV


Add some CSS to make the form slide out in the bottom right corner.

If your website is responsive, add a media query to center the form on small screens.

The jQuery

Load jQuery library on the page.

We will be using the jQuery slideUp and the jQuery slideDown methods to create the sliding effect and calculate if the window height is 100px from the bottom using jQuery.

You can change 100 to whatever height (in pixels) you want the form to appear from the bottom of the page.
