The "Custom iFrame" action allows you to insert a unique action into your promotion. When selecting the "Custom iFrame" action a pop-up window will allow you to edit the title of the action, the frequency that the action is able to be completed, the source URL to appear inside the iframe, the height of the iframe in pixels and the number of entries the action is worth.
Setting up Your iFrame Action
Configuring Your Custom iFrame action in Sideqik
Once you've set up a page, add a Custom iFrame action to your Sideqik Actions for Points or Actions for Entries campaign by clicking the “Add Action” button located in the top right corner of the Edit Actions sidebar. In the new pop-up window select the “Custom iFrame” action.
Set the “iFrame Source URL” to the address of your page.
Important: this needs to be an HTTPS location.
Set the “Height” to be the initial height you want the iframe to be. This should be based on how tall your content usually is. You can also add
within your page if you want the height of your action to automatically adjust to its height. The width of the iFrame is set to 570px and cannot be changed as it is limited by the width of the campaign itself.
The Custom iFrame action takes a little more work to setup than most of Sideqik's actions, but it allows you to track any action you can imagine within your Sideqik promotions.
The “Custom iFrame” action has the potential to turn your campaign into something truly unique. Some actions which you can include in the “Custom iFrame” action include:
- newsletter sign-up - ( integrated with your email provider)
- questionnaire / quiz
- register / login for brand specific account
The actions you are able to include with the “Custom iFrame” are unlimited, but this feature requires more technical knowledge than any other aspect of Sideqik. If you have any problems setting up your custom action, feel free to contact us and we would will be able to assist you!
