How Do I Add a Popup in Beaver Builder?

Adding a popup in Beaver Builder is a straightforward process that allows you to engage your website visitors effectively. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you through the process:

Step 1: Install and activate Beaver Builder and Popup Maker plugins

Begin by ensuring both Beaver Builder and Popup Maker plugins are installed and activated on your WordPress website.

Once you install and activate the Popup Maker plugin, the Popup Maker post type (popups) will be automatically enabled within the Beaver Builder settings.

You can locate this setting in your WordPress Admin Dashboard under Settings > Beaver Builder > Post Types:

Step 2: Create a new popup in Popup Maker

To create a new popup, head over to your WordPress dashboard and navigate to Popup Maker > Create Popup. Give your popup a descriptive name for easy identification:

Scroll down to define the popup’s appearance using the settings panel. Set triggers to determine when the popup appears and configure display rules to target specific pages, user roles, or devices:

Here you can choose from the following types of triggers:

  • Click Open: Displays a popup on a click
  • Time Delay / Auto Open: Displays a popup after an amount of time
  • Form Submission: Displays a popup after a form is submitted
  • Exit Intent (premium): Displays a popup when someone moves their cursor off the body of a page
  • Scroll (premium): Displays a popup when someone scrolls down a percentage of the page or when an element comes into view

Step 3: Design your popup content using Beaver Builder

This is where the magic happens! Unleash your creativity using Beaver Builder’s intuitive interface:

Click on the Beaver Builder tab to launch the editor. Here you will be able to design your popup layout. Drag and drop various Beaver Builder modules to structure your popup’s content. Add text, images, forms, and style your popup to match your website’s branding:

  • Text Modules: Craft compelling headlines, informative descriptions, and clear calls to action.
  • Image Modules: Showcase relevant product images, team members, or add visual interest.
  • Video Modules: Embed captivating videos to grab attention and explain your message effectively.
  • Form Modules: Capture valuable leads by including opt-in forms or contact forms.
  • Box Modules: Add Flexbox and CSS Grid layouts to Beaver Builder Page Builder Layouts.
  • Call to Action (CTA) Modules: Design prominent buttons that encourage visitors to take the desired action, whether it’s subscribing to your newsletter, downloading an ebook, or making a purchase.

In addition, you can utilize Beaver Builder’s Global Styles feature to maintain design consistency across your popups and website.

Click DONE and PUBLISH once your popup design is complete.

Step 4: Display your popup

The last step is to display your popup on the page. Simply select a module within your Beaver Builder layout that supports linking, such as a Button or Callout module.

Then, in the module settings panel, navigate to the “Link” option. Click on “Select,” locate the popup you created in Popup Maker, and choose it from the list:

Save your settings, and voila! Your popup is now linked and ready to engage your audience.

Unleash the Potential of Popups

By combining the design power of Beaver Builder with the functionality of Popup Maker, you can create high-converting popups that seamlessly blend into your website’s design. Here are some examples:

Welcome Popups

Welcome popups are a fantastic way to greet new visitors to your website and incentivize them to join your email list. Offer a compelling discount code, exclusive offer, or freebie in exchange for their email address. By providing immediate value, you can encourage visitors to engage further with your brand and stay connected for future updates and promotions.

Exit-Intent Popups

Don’t let potential leads slip away! Exit-intent popups are designed to capture the attention of visitors who are about to leave your website. These popups trigger when a user’s mouse cursor moves towards the browser’s exit button, signaling intent to leave. Use this opportune moment to present a last-minute offer, showcase valuable content they may have missed, or provide a special incentive to encourage them to stay or return in the future. By leveraging exit-intent popups effectively, you can turn abandoning visitors into engaged customers and subscribers, ultimately boosting your conversions and retention rates.

Scroll-Triggered Popups

Engage visitors as they explore your website with scroll-triggered popups. These popups appear when a user scrolls to a specific point on a page, capturing their attention at a moment when they’re actively engaged with your content. Use scroll-triggered popups to promote special offers, encourage newsletter sign-ups, or direct visitors to relevant product pages based on their browsing behavior.

These are just a few examples of the types of popups you can create using Popup Maker and Beaver Builder. With their flexible design capabilities and powerful features, you can customize your popups to suit your specific goals and objectives, whether it’s growing your email list, promoting special offers, or gathering feedback from your audience.
