On this next screen you can edit all aspects of the form itself – let’s start with Popup Design.

Then, to edit any individual component, such as Image, Headline, Body Text, Form, Button, or Background, click that item, then click the turquoise arrow on the right to load that particular set of editing options:

Thank You Page

Click Thank You Page to edit the look and text for your form. From here you can edit the Image, Headline, Body Text, add a Button, and adjust the background:

Tab Design

Use the Tab Design option to adjust the tab style, position, text, background color, and font color. This is the tab people will see on your website- by default it says Join Our Newsletter, but you can change it to whatever you like. Pro tip: Keep it short!

Edit Tab Design


From this tab you can control how your popup form behaves on your website.


Show on Exit-Intent: This means someone will see the popup when the click to navigate away from your website.

Timed Popup: The form will pop up after the set amount of time that you choose.

Frequency Limit: This will set how often the popup will show. The trigger is EITHER a click to your popup tab OR a click to navigate away from your website – whichever happens first.

Desktop & Tablet: Choose whether or not you want the form to show on desktop computers and tablet devices.

Mobile Devices: Choose whether or not you want the form to show on mobile devices.


Captcha Enabled: You can choose to have someone complete a captcha rather than Double Opt-In.

Double Opt-In: This will send a confirmation email to the recipient that they must click on to confirm their email subscription.

Advanced Settings

Auto Assign Contacts to a List: To automatically assign contacts to a list, check the boxes next to the list name(s) you want your new email addresses to go into. Remember to Save Changes!
