How to Implement a Content Locker in WordPress using Opt-In Panda

What is a Content Locker?

A Content Locker is an area of your website where the user must take an action in order to access premium content. That action could be something like entering an email, or social sharing to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc in order to unlock that premium content.

What should I use for Premium Content?

Premium content can be anything from a “resources page“, to something like “click to read full article“, or anything you deem valuable to the user. Premium content can also be considered like a “Lead Magnet“, (feel free to check out my ecourse on how to implement a Lead Magnet on your WordPress website), in that the ultimate goal is to gain valuable subscribers by giving away something for free, but the delivery of that giveaway is not the same.

Difference between a Lead Magnet and a Content Locker

Whereas a “Lead Magnet” is marketed as an “Instant Download“, a “Content Locker“, is marketed as something of a wider range, like “Accessing a page that has more information“, even if the end goal could be giving away that very same thing.

At the end of the day, it’s a DIFFERENT marketing tactic with the SAME goal in mind. Collecting email subscribers.
