How to Set Up PopupAlly

How PopupAlly Works

With the PopupAlly plugin, you can create popups, opt ins, and site banners on your WordPress website.

PopupAlly allows you to create custom branded opt in forms, including:

  • Exit-intent popups
  • Scroll-activated forms
  • Full-width banners
  • Embedded opt-ins
  • and more

Since each opt in form is linked to your email marketing tool, your list-building efforts are seamlessly automated.

What the PopupAlly setup looks like on your site:

With PopupAlly, your email list building efforts are easy and straightforward:

  1. Create a new opt in form with PopupAlly.
  2. Sync the opt in form with your email marketing tool, so PopupAlly knows where to send the new signup info.
  3. Once the opt in is live on your site, website visitors will be able to see it and enter their contact information.
  4. You can review the opt in data in PopupAlly to see which opt ins are performing well.

  • I need different popups, in different places, doing different things. Help!

    PopupAlly is perfect for you: Using the 6 Function Controls, and the 6 Power Features, you can create different popups for different areas of your website and have them be activated in different ways. And with the Priority Control Power Feature you can feel confident that your website guests won’t be bombarded with popups because you determine when (or if) readers see other popups elsewhere on your site. If you have multiple websites, you’re covered. You can install & use PopupAlly on all of them.

  • What if I follow best practices and still get complaints?

    Effective Marketing is a Screening Tool: Sometimes there’s just no pleasing folks. Even when we go to extremes. Nathalie once experienced this very thing when a reader signed up at Real Foods Witch, consumed the free content, and then complained that the site’s “Witch” motif was religiously offensive. Go figure! We’ve all been there. Just remember this, when people complain, they’re usually not your ideal customer. But when they’re paying attention (the kind of customer we want!), they’ll likely see you’re doing your best to give them the relevant information they need, when they need it.

  • I still get popups for newsletters & email lists I'm already signed up for! Yikes!

    Smart Subscriber Recognition to the Rescue: Our Smart Subscriber Recognition power feature is a unique solution to this wide-spread problem. This extraordinary feature automatically flags existing newsletter and email subscribers. When readers click links from inside your emails or newsletters, they won’t get more annoying requests to sign up when they land on your website. Because PopupAlly recognizes them immediately and de-activates the popup so it doesn’t appear.

  • I get suspicious when I sign up for something and it goes to a different URL. What's up with that?

    PopupAlly stays on your Website: Compared to other ordinary popups, PopupAlly doesn’t bounce through another company’s website and display another company’s URL. This can be a big trust factor. When people see a different web site address, they immediately get suspicious. When this happens, establishing trust can be more difficult. Which means they may be less likely to do business with you. Or, at best, much slower to say yes, because there is less trust. PopupAlly runs on your website independently because once it’s installed it is part of your website.

  • Does PopupAlly work with mobile?

    Definitely! PopupAlly works on Apple mobile devices like iPhone & iPad. PopupAlly also works on Android devices, including smartphones and tablet computers. It’s the WordPress popup plugin responsive to mobile and different sized screens!
