New Popups by Landingi – win customers’ attention!

On our road to enhance Landingi platform we’ve made another step – quite big one, to be honest. This functionality has been highly anticipated by our users since we can recall. Now it’s time to move forward! Buckle up, we’re launching a whole new product – it’s called Pop up Maker!

But hey, you already have pop ups!

Yes, there are pop ups in Landingi platform available for quite some time. The thing is, they are just very simple version of what we prepared for you now! This is why we decided to make a slight name change. Now read carefully: old, basic popups are lightboxes from now on, and a whole new pop ups will be known under the name of – wait for it – pop ups. Let’s ponder over these two for a moment and distinguish them from one another to avoid confusion.

Popups Lightboxes

Lightboxes are available from Create plan. You can make them using the same Landingi editor you use for creating landing pages, and save them for later use. One lightbox can be assigned to many pages, but only in our platform.

And what about the functionality? Add the button or an image on a landing page, set the on click option to “show lightbox”, then choose one of previously created lightboxes (or create a new one by clicking the green plus button). And that’s pretty much it. Simple, yet functional, as on click events are the least invasive ones. But sometimes you just need something more complex, that can hold users’ attention for longer and encourage them to stay on your landing page… or a website. This is why you should consider…

Pop up Maker

After some time spent on designing and programming new pop up feature we decided to run it as a separate product – Pop up Maker. Mostly because  the new version of popups by Landingi is far more advanced than its predecessor. And – what’s more important – you can use it even if you don’t have a Landingi account.

Oh, and there’s one more thing: Pop up Maker is free of charge! You can create one pop up for free and use it wherever you want. Of course, if you decide you need more pop ups and more advanced functions, you can upgrade from Pop Up Free plan to Pop Up Pro. Take a look:


Keep in mind, though, that if you are already a Landingi user on Create, Automate or any Agency plan, the new pop ups are included in your plan and you can use all their pro features.

How to use Pop Up Maker?

Let’s take a quick look at what new pop ups offer. Use all these features however you like and increase the visitors’ engagement on your landing pages and websites. The edition of a popup remains pretty much the same, but its activation looks slightly different – let’s do it step by step and learn how to use Pop Up Maker along the way:

1. Targeting

First, choose the proper targeting for a popup window – add any number of landing pages or external pages. If you want to include your newly created pop up in a Landingi landing page, choose the first option. If you have a website or a landing page created elsewhere and hosted on different server, select the latter option:


2. Pop up triggers

You decide, under what circumstances the pop up will appear. Set the pop up to trigger in a number of ways instead of simple clicking on a specific button or image. At the moment, there are four triggers available:

Then, choose any number of triggers you want (yes, they can work simultaneously) and configure them:

  • Time spent – after a specific time spent on a website or a landing page.
  • Scroll depth – after a user scrolls down to certain percentage of a page.
  • Exit intent – when a user hovers his mouse cursor somewhere near the upper border of the page.
  • Click on element – when a user clicks on a specific element on a page.

3. Display rules

Next, set the frequency of popups display. You can choose one of the following options, depending on what exactly do you need:


And lastly: publish your popup and start using it!


If everything went smoothly, you should see the same notification as below, containing the list of landing pages or website you’ve assigned your popup to:


After the popup is published, you can freely change its display options, assign it to new pages or edit it. As always: we don’t put limits on number of popups you may create. Log in to Landingi, select popups tab and start using our new feature!
