Add Content Interactivity. Improve Engagement.
Transform your landing experiences and your results with designer-quality interactivity. Drag-and-drop instant excitement into your pages. It’s that easy to lower your bounce rate and increase your conversions.
The ion platform includes nine exciting drag-and-drop components that will shorten your pages, lower your bounce rate and lengthen your average time spent. No developers, designers, code or cost. Just total content power in the palm of your hands.
ion’s interactive components work for everyone, everywhere—desktop, touch and mobile—without plug-ins or hassles. They let you present more content in less space with more sizzle.
So go ahead, test a rotator against tabs. Or an accordion against a microsite. Add anything and everything social in seconds. And watch your landing pages create way more visitor enthusiasm than your home page. Happy visitors mean happy conversion rates.
Slide Images, Text, Testimonials and More.
ion’s rotator is a powerfully flexible content slider. Drag-and-drop it into your page and let the ooohs and aaahs begin. Click to add your content or to customize your settings. Everything from slide speed, to height, navigation styling, transitions and more can be adjusted. It will look like you spent thousands on development. You’ll know you made it in minutes.
Condense Multipage Content into Tabs.
Tabs let you have more content to transform long pages into short ones—packing a lot of content punch into a small amount of space. ion’s tabbed presenter gives you 2-7 horizontal tabs that let your visitors instantly switch between content—without page reloads. Drag your tabs into your page, add some content, and you’re done. Our tabs function flawlessly across browsers and devices. And their appearance is governed by your brand standards. With flawless form and function from ion, you’re free to focus on marketing rather than code and design.
Layer Content for a Custom Graphic Look.
Layering content lets you keep more above the fold and turn more visitors into conversions. But, without a designer and/or developer, you’ll need our layered component to make it happen. Drag it onto your page, click to add an image and some text and you have instant professionally layered content that look like beautiful graphics. Adjust settings like height, alignment, opacity, layer scale and more with ease. Test alternatives and see how our platform delivers breakthrough results.
Condense Content into Accordions.
Our accordion component lets you stack content in vertically expandable chunks—giving your visitors a shorter, more digestible, interactive experience. In some contexts, tabs outperform accordions. In others, it’s the inverse. Test for yourself by publishing alternatives in minutes. Just drag, drop, add content and launch. Like other interactive components, your accordion’s appearance is styled by your brand standards.
Layer a Page Over Another with a Lightbox.
Lightboxes keep your visitors on a main page while you instantaneously give them an additional page within a smaller window. A great example of lightbox testing is to run a page with a conversion form on the page versus a page where the form only appears when the call to action is clicked. Is it better to see the form or not? Test for yourself and find out.
Lightboxes have never been easier to create. Drag the component onto your page and you have a lightbox that can be triggered by a click on a link, a button or an image. Any page you want can be displayed in the lightbox and, of course, you can size it as you see fit.
Display Videos with Ease.
Video can be a greater way to boost engagement and conversion results. ion’s video component makes it easy to include your Brightcove, Ooyala, Vimeo or YouTube videos within your pages. All of your settings and options are available within our point-and-click interface. We are passionate about making it fast and easy to publish and test all content—including video—without code, developers, designers or additional costs.
Anything and everything you ever wanted to do with Facebook is available within our component. Drag and drop it into your page. Then, point and click to create and style your Like Button, Follow, Like Box, Facepile and Recent Activity options. Easily experiment with how Facebook impacts your bounce and conversion rates by setting up alternatives and letting them go head-to-head in a test. Do it all in minutes—without code, developers or designers.
Our Twitter component gives you easy point-and-click access to add Tweet, Follow and Timeline options to your ion platform landing experiences. You can easily enable and set preferences within seconds. Plus, you can track interactions—to see exactly which behaviors lead to conversion. With ion, you can quantify the impact of adding Twitter components to your pages, test alternatives and improve your results.
This one’s our social superhero. Our social componenet pulls together Twitter (Tweet and Follow), Facebook (Like and Follow), Google+, LinkedIn and Pinterest—enabling you to use as many of them as you like in a single unit. Drag social onto any target in your ion platform landing experiences, point-and-click to set your options and launch. Within minutes, you can have rich, social engagement on any or every page—all without code, developers, designers, cost or wasted time.
Flexible, Professional, Unlimited Templates.
What we learned in our previous life in the content management business is that people will always find a way to outgrow templates. The mere idea of content types and fields was never going to work in the fast-paced world of landing experiences. So we rethought everything.
It starts with a basic premise: anything can be made dynamic. Yes, the platform includes more than 75 standard templates. And yes, those are proven to lift results—with 57% of our customers reporting 3X or greater conversion rate improvement. But anything can be turned into a dynamic ion page. And just about anything within a page can be made dynamic.
So the shackles of templates have been lost. Any web developer can add any page to the ion platform and make it dynamic. From there, that page can be used again and again—filled with content components and tested hundreds or even thousands of times—without code, developers, designers or additional costs.
It's all about reusability. If you make investments in code and design, you should be able to test alternatives within that structure to get the best possible conversion outcome from your investment. That’s the flexibility designed into our platform.
75 Proven Layouts
At ion, we have an impressive track record of successfully improving brand impact and conversion rates. In addition to specific client successes, our years of experience have resulted in a set of page layouts that have worked well across hundreds of customers and millions of pages. That’s not to say they are perfect for everyone, but they’re a pretty good starting point—and we include them in the platform.
ion comes with 75 different page layouts combined into more than 60 landing page, microsite and conversion path landing experiences. You can add your content—fill in the blanks—and launch. Or you can customize by adding and subtracting dynamic elements to your heart’s content.
Each one of the page layouts can be used in literally hundreds of ways to create great pages. By combining these super-flexible pages into microsites or conversion paths, you have a blank canvas with virtually unlimited possibilities.
“With the flexible, reactive nature of the ion templates, I can modify and iterate landing pages on the fly which ultimately makes it so much easier to create targeted, specific landing pages.”— General Mills
Freedom Within Boundaries
By letting you make almost anything dynamic, ion also lets you keep anything static. There are many organizations that want to maintain control over brand, layout and user experience to ensure that visitors find consistency across online properties. ion was explicitly designed to make the cohabitation of dynamic and static elements an elegant, intuitive and flexible reality. Freedom is entirely up to each ion customer. You decide how much freedom there is and where the boundaries begin and end.
The ion platform takes brand continuity seriously. Your brand is faithfully reproduced within the platform, to your standards, as part of your onboarding. Your custom-branded theme is applied to the pages within your ion console, so that every page you create is 100% brand compliant and consistent with your other web properties.
You can also have many different themes within your ion platform. Each one makes an experience look and feel completely different. This enables support for multiple brands, regions, languages, demographics, clients, seasonalities all in one ion console. You change any experience from one theme to another in two clicks.
