How to Increase Conversions with Pop-up Signup Forms
By Scott Schiess
Marketing is a numbers game. You want to drive as much traffic as possible to your business and consistently convert that traffic into leads. The ability to successfully convert often comes down to having an attractive website that keeps a visitor's attention long enough for your value proposition to set in. After taking a moment to mentally digest what you are offering, a visitor will then look into ways to learn more about you. This interest often leads to filling out a signup form, the most essential part of the conversion process.
You never want your signup form to be hard to find. That being said, the from also shouldn’t distract from the lead magnet that visitors found engaging in the first place. Ideally, you want to integrate your form in a way that makes it hard to ignore but not obtrusive to the website experience.
For a growing number of digital marketers, the solution is using pop-up windows to introduce a form in a way that forces visitors to acknowledge the form without cluttering the page. The benefits of using pop-up forms are well documented, with some studies boasting a 1,375% increase in conversions compared to sidebar forms!

But be warned, the success of a pop-up form isn’t guaranteed! Marketers must offer something relevant and valuable to visitors in order for them to feel enticed enough to exchange their information for it. Think of what your audience cares about and align this offer with that interest.

Give them a taste of your expertise while teasing the crucial secrets to come. Be brief and relatable so the value is clear.
