A "non form" option in Lead Flows

I would like to add a Lead Flow to my page, but don't want to have my visitors fill in their email addresses. Can you make this optional (even recommended) instead or required?

Wow, this ought to be such a core feature, I never would have dreamt we can't redirect to a page (or provide a URL for the button click). I was half way through implementing this, now I'm gacking with dismay.

Agreed! I recently wanted to promote a survey link using the traffc we generate from our blog. The survey is anonymous, so no need to have anyone fill out a form. I just needed a link. Was bummed I couldn't accomplish this with hubspot.

I definitely need this feature that simply notifies visitors of something new and redirects them to either different site or page on your website. It's surprising that HubSpot doesn't already have this feature as they use this functionality for some of their announcements on their own website.

This would be an awesome feature. Even if it's through the lead flow area but just have a check box or something to not use a form but a CTA instead.

I am confused as to the link provided by Vishnu:

https://blog.hubspot.com/marketing/how-to-add-a-slide-in-call-to-action-to-your-blog-posts

 

Isn't this just showing the existing Lead Flows? It still requires a form, which is what this Idea is asking to eliminate.

@graceafon it looks like this article has been updated to show a lead flow, it used to show a way to create a slide-in CTA in HubSpot with JavaScript. The interesting thing is I still got a slide-in CTA that was not a lead flow when I scrolled down the page. Not sure why HubSpot would have them on their site yet not add them to lead flows. This article does start to confuse things a bit now unless they are truly going to add CTAs to lead flows and not just forms.

@trevorhatfield Thanks for explaining!

 

Another person got a cached page as a response here:

 

https://community.hubspot.com/t5/Conversion-Tools/Slide-in-CTA/td-p/27844

 

This being the old page with the instructions I presume were previously in the article linked.

Since it's entirely possible to do it, people have been requesting for it, and HubSpot does it themselves -- I really have no idea why they're not making this possible either Smiley Sad

 

I tried the code given in the old article but my footer html code is not working as expected, so I'm not sure if it still works! Fingers crossed that it will, after HubSpot support helps me out with those errors.

Would LOVE this feature, if it existed. So odd that HubSpot uses this capibility, but won't let us use it? I'm going to try the JavaScript code provided by @graceafon and hope it works!

Not only do I still want this feature, but I hope they update it for consent ASAP for GDPR, or this one is dead in the water...

 Yes - I'm having to do an annoying workaround where I capture just the email address before dumping the user on the landing page. It's silly.
