Designing your pop-up form

  • The next step is to choose from a variety of templates or start from scratch to design a pop-up form that aligns perfectly with your website's branding and style.
  • If you choose to build from scratch, you can use the different elements in the form builder to customise the pop-up form as per your need.

Using elements

  • You can also use different elements present in the form builder. The builder provides a good mix of basic and advanced elements.
  • With basic elements like "Add image" and "Add video", most of your requirements would be met, but for folks who like to be more technical, the builder provides a "Code snippet" element as well to add your own custom CSS and JS code.

  • We also have some cool elements as well - like the countdown timer, which you can use to create a sense of urgency on your pop-up. This is a handy way to drive more sales and subscription when you publish a popup form on your website.
  • You can customise parts of elements and your form such as BG color, shade, size and other things. It's best to try these things out in the builder itself to play around and customise the form as per your design language.
  • For adding a form element, it's crucial to select the contact fields like email or anything else you want to capture. You also need to select the list from a dropdown. All your submissions will be added in this list. P.S. We show all the lists that you created in Mailmodo and you can create a new one as well.

Setting up your pop-up form

Setup different rules to decide how, when and for whom your pop-up form will appear

  1. Audience: Let's you decide about who should be seeing this popup form.
  2. Rules: Let's you decide about when should the pop-up form appear for your visitor.

We have different rules in setup configuration of the popup form. For. e.g. in the below image, you can see that the pop up form will appear when 10% of your your website (first page where you will show the pop-up form) is scrolled through.
