Set up in-page navigation
Insert anchor links to your content (e.g. a href=“#features“) and link to sections of your page. You will need to add a name or id attribute to the elements you are linking to (e.g. div id=“features“).
Set up an email opt-in

Set up an opt-in locker
Use UMW’s built-in opt-in locker. Lure users to submit their email by providing ‘a gift’, for example. After they provide their email address, an email is sent to them with a link to the locked content, for example.

Users often come to your website to understand how much things are going to cost them. Using other plugins, you can create various price calculators and provide them to users via the side menu.
Insert internal or external links in your menu item. Open in new window, if you want.
Use Modal Windows
In conjunction with the Ultimate Modal Windows (UMW) plugin, add modal windows that will open when user clicks on the menu item. This opens up a lot of possibilities: use it for inquiries, price calculators, enable UMW’s opt-in locker, insert any other extra functionality and content!
