How to create a pop-up form

EmailOctopus form editor allows you to create pop-up subscription forms. You can trigger them based on timing, scroll percentage of your website, exit intent, or a button click.

Creating a pop-up form

To create a pop-up form, go to the "Landing pages & forms" tab. Next, choose the "Forms" option and click on a button to create a form – this will open the form editor.

First, choose the connected list and the format of your form – in this case, a pop-up form. Next, pick the template, and start editing your form.

The form editor works the same way for all formats – you can read about it in detail here. Pop-up forms have some extra options related to their display mechanism. You can find them under the "Settings" tab within the left-hand column.

Pop-up forms display options 

Using Display options you can choose on which devices to display your form, and how often your visitors should see it.

  • Exit intent: the form will display when visitors attempt to exit the page

  • Scroll percentage: the form will display when visitors scroll down through a selected portion of your page

  • Timing: the form will display after a specified amount of time

  • A link is clicked: The pop-up will display when a link is clicked

The last setting lets you choose how often your visitors should see the pop-up form. If you'd like the form to be displayed anytime someone visits your page, set it as "once every 0 days". 

To get the code for the link, click on the "Add to your website" link in the upper right corner. The second code in the pop-up box is the one you can use for the link:

When using our Starter plan, you can create up to three forms and/or landing pages per account. If you need more – upgrade to the Pro plan.
