Types of Popups

Types of Popups

There are several ways to display your popup based on visitor actions. Some of the most popular below: 

  • Timed-Based - This method will show your popup after a predetermined amount of time. A time-based popup can work well if you set it to 60 seconds or greater, as you know at that point you are showing it to someone thats been engaged with your site for a while and more committed. 
  • Content-Based - Content-based popup will only show your popup on specified pages.
  • Scroll-Based - A scroll-based popup will show your popup when a user has scrolled a specific percentage of the way down your page. This is commonly used on blog posts and is similar to the timed method as you are only showing your popup to someone who has engaged with your page a specific amount. 
  • Exit-Intent - An exit-intent popup only shows when a visitor is about to leave your site. Using cursor tracking, the popup app will determine when someone is about to click the back or close button on their browser and show your popup in a last ditch attempt to get an email address or offer a discount before the visitor leaves your site. 
  • Pop-Out - A pop-out is a slightly different version of a popup. Instead of popping up and blocking the visitors surfing experience, it pops out of the side of the browser but still allows the visitor to continue browsing.
