Create a new text element for your ‘typed’ text and add some default text. Make this text element wide enough to accommodate your ‘typed’ text.
Click ‘view source’ and create a new innermost span around your default text. Give this span an id of ‘typed’ (or another ID/class of your choosing)
Replace ‘.element’ with the ID from step 2.
Add your ‘typed’ words or phrases to the strings array
Optional: for blink cursor effect, copy CSS from ‘animated_cursor.css’ and add to your page Stylesheets
Like any other feature that you implement onto your page, you’ll want to see what effect it has on your conversion rates. We recommend running an A/B test and segmenting a small portion of traffic towards the page, just to be safe. Documentation on A/B testing can be found here.
