What are Popups and Banners? 

In the web design world, popups and banners are lead capture tools used to deliver value and engage users on your site. Popups and banners typically aim to capture user attention and prompt an action like clicking a button, filling out a form, visiting a certain page, etc. While both service similar functions, they differ slightly in format and usage: 

Popups: Popups are windows or boxes that appear over your website page’s content, attracting your visitors attention. Popups are designed to appear based on certain triggers like time on page or scroll position. Generally popups pause visitors’ interactions with your page to draw their attention. This makes them incredibly effective for capturing leads, promoting offers, or delivering important information. 

Banners: Generally more static and less intrusive than popups, banners are placed at strategic locations on a webpage, such as the top or bottom. They can be used to announce new features, promotions, or provide alerts. Banners often stay in view as the user navigates the site or can be dismissed with a click.

Types of Popups

Understanding the various forms of popups and banners will help you choose the right type for your specific needs. Here are a few common types:

Popup Layouts

We have several available popup layouts you can choose from! And of course you can always customize your popup layout by adjusting the size and inset. 

Using Popups and Banners Strategically 

When used strategically, popups and banners can dramatically enhance your website’s performance. They can be tailored to match the look and feel of your site, ensuring a seamless user experience while also serving as powerful tools for increasing conversion rates, promoting engagement, and providing valuable information at just the right time.

Popups and banners are an important piece of your marketing campaigns and function of your website! Have a new product launching? Set a banner with to remind visitors of the time of launch. Just wrote a new blog post? Use a popup to display your new content. Have a promotion running? Display a discount code! Popups and banners should always be designed with the user in mind.
