Lead Generation is the process that attracts the attention of your potential customers and enables you to get information about them. The purpose here is to get to know the people who will use your products or services better. Here, it is also aimed to create an idea of how to approach them with some information you will receive from your potential customers. Cinema8 has developed a feature for this, that your audience can reach you easily. In this way, your viewers can reach you with one click and deliver their information to you.


You can say that I can collect hundreds of leads with different methods. But sometimes, in the hundreds of leads you collect, it doesn't provide you with an efficient return. With this feature of Cinema8, you can get leads with high return rate.


Preparing Mail Drafts with Cinema8
With Cinema8's "Mail to" feature, you can collect e-mail information from your audience and let them send e-mails quickly to the address you will write. With this feature, it is aimed to reach the audience more quickly. Because the less the audience tries to reach you, the more positive the user experience will be.


Let's take a look at how you can use this feature in Cinema8.


First of all, we add the button that we will direct the viewers to our e-mail address with the "Image" element. Our goal here is to direct viewers who click the button to their device's default mail application.
