Table of Contents

Pop-ups are an effective way to quickly capture your visitors’ attention and increase your website’s engagement rate. With Elementor, creating eye-catching pop-ups has never been easier. Elementor is a popular WordPress page builder that allows you to build and customize websites visually and effortlessly, regardless of your coding skills.

In this post, we’ll show you how to create a stunning pop-up with Elementor using simple drag-and-drop tools. Whether you’re looking to promote a new product, collect subscribers, or enhance your user experience, this guide will equip you with the tools you need to create a high-performing pop-up in no time.

Step 1: Create a new pop-up

To create a pop-up with Elementor, you’ll need to install the Elementor Pro plugin. Once you’ve installed and activated the plugin, head over to your website’s WordPress dashboard and click on “Templates” from the left-hand menu. From there, click on “Popups” and then “Add New Popup.” You’ll be directed to a new page where you can choose from a variety of pre-designed templates or start from scratch by selecting the “Blank Canvas” option.

Step 2: Customize your pop-up

Once you’ve selected a template or created a blank canvas, you can start customizing your pop-up to fit your branding and goals. With Elementor’s intuitive drag-and-drop interface, you can add text, images, videos, buttons, forms, and other interactive elements to your popup. You can also adjust the size, position, animation, and behavior of each element to create a seamless and engaging user experience.

Step 3: Configure your pop-up settings

After you’ve designed your pop-up, you’ll need to configure its settings to control when, where, and how it appears on your website. You can set the trigger type (such as On Click, On Scroll, or On Page Load), the trigger action (such as Show, Hide, or Toggle), and the target location (such as All Pages, Specific Pages, or Archive Pages). You can also set the targeting options (such as User Roles, Devices, or Cookies) and the exit-intent behavior (such as Stay or Leave).

Step 4: Add a form integration

One of the most common uses of pop-ups is to collect leads or subscribers. To achieve this, you can integrate a form plugin (such as Mailchimp, HubSpot, or ConvertKit) with your pop-up. Simply drag and drop the form widget into your pop-up, select the form you want to use, and customize its fields and styling. You can also configure the form submission settings, validation messages, and confirmation messages to make sure your visitors have a smooth and seamless experience.

Step 5: Publish your pop-up

Once you’ve designed, customized, and configured your pop-up, you’re ready to publish it live on your website. Simply click on the “Publish” button at the bottom of the screen, select the display conditions, and save your changes. You can preview your pop-up on desktop and mobile devices to ensure it looks and works as intended. You can also track your pop-up’s performance using Elementor’s built-in analytics tool and optimize it over time to achieve better results.


Creating a pop-up with Elementor is a straightforward and rewarding process that can help you achieve your website’s goals and boost your conversions. By following the steps outlined in this guide, you can unleash your creativity and design a stunning pop-up that engages your visitors and drives action. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different templates, elements, and targeting options to find what works best for your audience. With Elementor’s powerful and flexible tools, the sky’s the limit when it comes to creating effective and memorable pop-ups. Happy designing!
