Gain more newsletter subscribers with the PopUp Maker Contact Form plugin for Wordpress

With pop-up forms you boost the sign-up rate of your WordPress newsletter, because the sign-up forms that suddenly pop up cannot be overlooked - and are therefore particularly successful!

A clear advantage for the PopUp Maker! And here are some more plus points:

  • Pop-ups are like trash TV icons: kind of annoying, but you can't avoid them. For this reason, the conversion rate is significantly higher than with a login button in the header or footer of the page.
  • Surprise effect: The pop-up suddenly appears, for example after a certain amount of time spent on the page or when the website visitor is actually about to leave. A previously set trigger such as user behaviour (the movement of the mouse cursor in the direction of leaving the page) activates the pop-up.
  • The pop-up requires attention because it is so large that it cannot be overlooked and it overlays everything else. The user must first perform an action before other actions are possible: Either click away or log in. 10 % - 15 % of all website visitors decide in favour of the latter with the exit pop-up.

You can find out more about pop-ups and other registration options on the website in our magazine article "10 ways to gain newsletter subscribers on your own website".

By the way: Don't be afraid of pop-up blockers! Technically speaking, the registration form that opens in the foreground is a modal, also known as a lightbox. This means that no new window is opened - which an activated blocker would suppress. The registration form as a modal, on the other hand, only moves to the foreground of the page, but it is subordinate to the main window of the page. This is why it is displayed despite the blocker being activated.

Combine the PopUp Maker with the CleverReach registration form to attract more newsletter subscribers to your WordPress site.

Now it continues in the PopUp Maker plugin:

5. give your new pop-up form a name. Then paste the copied shortcode of the CleverReach form into the content area. You also have the option of adding additional text, images or other content to the CleverReach form shortcode.

6. now define a trigger that triggers the display of the pop-up registration form on the target page so that the contact form pops up. You will find all the options for this below the content area. Possible triggers are a click, leaving the page (indicated by the cursor movement) or a timed trigger.

It is possible to restrict the display of the modal to certain pages of your WordPress website.

7. set live: The last step is to publish the popup. To check that everything is working as desired, go to the WordPress page(s) selected for the pop-up in preview mode. As soon as the selected trigger condition is met, the CleverReach form modal will appear.
