Popup Maker provides you with 2 options for creating a custom pop up for your website – From Scratch and via Templates.

From Scratch

  • The so-called “From Scratch” method of popup creation is the one where you build all the looks by yourself. Add any elements you wish into your popup, add images, and set up the sizing and the rest of the customization options to have the desired results. There are 14 popup elements available for your choice to include in your popup and have the desired look and feel. Contact form and Subscription forms, Button and Floating button and PayPal button elements, Countdown, Spinner, MailChimp, Age Restriction, and many more super useful elements are provided for your choice. 
    The process is very easy even for a newbie and non-techie person. You simply click on the element and it’s added to your popup content.

Pop up Triggering Events – Essentials of Reaching Better Results

How the popup appears is the most important aspect of the whole popup campaign. This is what we name “triggering events”. That’s the very first step of catching the reaction of the visitor. It’s all about appearance and first sight. 

There are various triggering events for popups, and Popup Maker has gathered them all in this simple, yet powerful pop up creation service. Let’s check them one by one and see the use cases for each type.

On Load
Subscribe with group
* “Subscribe with group” popup template was used for this popup.

A popup with this event will appear automatically when the page fully loads. The best use of this event is setting a time delay for its opening. This is a perfect practice not to irritate the users, and not get penalized by Google. One of the advantages of this event is that you can use the “Repetitive” mode to show the popup repeatedly, after a specified amount of time.

On Scroll

Spinner Popup Maker
* “Subscribe to win” popup template was used for this popup.

This is one of the best engaging events for any popup type. You simply specify the percentage of your page, scrolling and reaching which the popup will be triggered. Showing a popup with this event is a good practice for bloggers, for example. Add a subscription pop-up to your blog posts, with on scroll event. This is a proven way of collecting subscribers as if the user has scrolled the page and reached some specified part, this means they are interested in your posts. And this is proof they will be eager to subscribe to your newsletter.

On Click
Contact us left bottom
*  “Contact us left bottom” popup template was used for this popup.

Click-triggered popups are one of the most optimal ways of showing some content, like forms in a popup. This is the best way to get rid of additional content on your website, showing them in a beautiful, tiny popup. For example, you can show your Contact forms in popups. Simply have one button on your page that will open a popup with the form, instead of placing the whole form on the page. 

On Hover
Summer sale pop up
* “Summer sale pop up” popup template was used for this popup. 

This pop-up triggering event is the best way of showing “hidden” offers in the content. You add the custom pop-up on a text or some other element in the page content. And it appears suddenly when the visitor is simply rolling over your pages. A great instance of an “on hover” popup can be the product’s short description on an eCommerce website. This is just a perfect way of attracting more customers to your online shop. As this is a very convenient way of checking out the description of the item without going to that product’s page separately.

Exit Intent
Back Friday Discount

* “Back Friday Discount” popup template was used for this popup.

This is the very special event of all the triggering events out there. No other event can be more engaging and effective than exit intent. This is a real-time conversion, just when the user tries to leave your website. Use this triggering event with a nice popup offer and you have all the chances to bring the user back! What is more exciting about this event is that Popup Maker makes it work even on mobile devices, which is a rare thing in the sphere. So you can show a mobile exit-intent popup to keep the conversion on any device.

Discount popup 60
* “Discount popup 60” popup template was used for this popup.

The last and no less effective pop-up triggering event is the inactivity one. The word itself tells us that this event shows a popup when the user is inactive on the site. You can set a specific amount of time after which a popup offer will appear if the user does nothing on the site for a while. A great example of the usage of this event can be a popup, shown on the checkout page. Offer some discounts to convince the user to finalize the payment. 


Summing up, we can certainly confirm that creating a custom pop-up for any website can be a really easy task, even if you’re a newbie. The chief factor in this process is having the perfect popup creator tool. With a perfect tool, the popup creation process can be not only easy but also very fun. As a result, your website conversion rates will insanely grow without any effort. Check out yourself! 😉
