Top services for creating a popup subscription form

A high-quality customer base is one of the key conditions for successful email marketing. And the easiest way to collect it is through website subscription forms. They can be static (built-in) and popup widgets.

The advantage of popup widgets is that they attract attention. Some users are annoyed by such elements of the custom interface, but if you set up the display conditions correctly and do not overuse the widgets, you can avoid negative effects.

Previously, we revealed how to use widgets for ecommerce. Now, we will talk about the services that can help you build it.

Criteria for choosing services for popup forms

A company can create a popup using its own programmers or hire a contractor. However, today there are many special services that offer quick setup of popups. On such platforms, you can find various designs of subscription forms and the opportunity to conduct A/B testing, set up targeting, integrate with your email marketing service, etc. However, you will definitely have to pay for advanced functionality.

You should pay attention to the following nuances when choosing a service:

  • options for placing the popup on the page and the conditions of its display;
  • availability of a library of templates and options for implementing various design solutions (for example, whether you can create a popup in the corporate style of the company or upload your own images and fonts);
  • integration with your email marketing system (whether there is a direct integration or additional tools that can be used to set it up);
  • the cost of using the service.

We've reviewed the capabilities of several companies that offer a subscription form creation. Once you familiarize yourself with a brief description of each, it will be easier for you to make a choice for your site.


The builder for creating subscription forms (widgets) is available for free to Yespo CDP users. You can choose one of the options:

  • inline;
  • popup;
  • floating box;
  • floating bar.

Types of widgets

The inline form can be placed inside any element on the required page of the website.

A popup form pops up on top of the main content of the page. The site visitor will not be able to interact with it until they close the window with the subscription form.

The floating box appears in the bottom corner of the screen and does not interfere with the user's interaction with the website content.

The floating bar is located at the bottom or top of the screen in its entire width and does not overlap the content of the website.

The widgets you create in the editor are already adaptive and display seamlessly on mobile devices. Here's how the same popup looks on different displays (mobile version is on the right).

You can create responsive forms in the Yespo CDP builder

You don't need the programmers to place the widget on your website. All you need to do is install the Yespo script on your website to make the form appear on it.


There are various settings available in the widget builder that will help you to make a form in the style of your website. First of all, you need to decide on the location and content of the element. Whether it will be placed vertically or horizontally, with or without a picture, and whether it will have accompanying text. You can also customize:

  • form style (choice of 5 options: classic, minimalist, decorative, soft, modern);

Form design options

  • button color (gradient or solid fill, with or without a shadow);
  • background color;
  • text style, color, size, and placement (+ underlining, italics, shading, etc.).

Working with the builder is intuitive and easy – just drag and drop the necessary blocks on the workspace and customize them. If you want to add an image to the form but don't have a suitable one, the system has a library with collections of illustrations, abstract patterns, and icons.

Additional features

Collecting and using data

Yespo CDP collects, stores, and updates the data of all contacts who sign the form in contact cards. This data can be used for omnichannel communication in 7 channels:

  • email
  • web push
  • mobile push
  • SMS
  • Viber
  • App Inbox
  • In-App

In addition, you can set up an automatic welcome email series for customers who subscribe to your newsletters via the subscription form. All you need to do is create an email or several emails, set up a workflow, and link it to the required subscription form. The system will then send messages to new contacts automatically.

Performance data for each widget is collected and updated in real time. The number of subscriptions, interactions with the form, and even tracking of widget revenue – all of this you can see in one system.


In Yespo CDP, you can set up detailed conditions for how and when your form will be displayed on the website. For example:

  • When to show
  • Frequency of display
  • When to stop showing
  • On which pages

Conditions for displaying widgets

Importantly, you can choose the segment of users who will see your widget on the website.


You can create a multilingual popup in Yespo CDP. When displaying the form, the language will be determined by the "lang" attribute in the html tag. If it is not specified, the browser language is used. For identified visitors whose information is available in the contact card, the language is selected based on the corresponding field value.

А/В testing

With Yespo, you can perform A/B testing of your widgets to find the best form for your website. You can test not only different content, such as images or text but also different types of widgets, such as popups and floating bars, etc.

Other types of widgets

In Yespo, you can use the same widget builder to create not only subscription forms to collect contacts of new website visitors but also survey forms. They allow you to get additional data from subscribers. For example, you can ask about a customer's birthday, children, or pets. All collected information is recorded in the contact card.

Survey example

You can also create a launcher that will be linked to your subscription form. The launcher does not prevent visitors from interacting with your website and allows them to open the form at a convenient time.

Launcher example

To inform identified and anonymous website visitors about company news or discounts, devote them to a specific product category, or involve them into interaction, you can create an informer in the Yespo builder.

Informer example

If you need to verify your website visitors by age, you can add an age gate widget to your website. It will block the website content until the user clicks the confirmation button.

Age gate widget example


The service offers a drag'n'drop editor for creating various types of widgets, including subscription forms. You can add images, manage text and button settings in a few clicks.

The service allows you to create 3 widgets for one website for free to test the functionality.


All elements of the form layout can be customized. In addition, the company can create branded widgets.

If you do not have your own images, the editor has a stock of images and icons. To make it easier to create the form you need, Claspo offers more than 700 widget templates for any purpose.

 Template library

Forms are created already adaptive, but you can edit the desktop and mobile versions separately if you wish – define the alignment of elements, font size, etc.

Additional features

Claspo allows you to define the conditions for displaying the subscription form on your website in detail. For example, set up:

  • show frequency (1 time, 1 time per session, 1 time for a specified number of days, no limits);
  • demonstration to users of a certain device type (desktop, mobile, all);
  • when to show (spent the specified time on the site in seconds, scrolled the page by 10% or more).

The service allows A/B testing of widgets and tracking their effectiveness using built-in analytics and Google Analytics.

Claspo can be directly integrated with a number of services, such as ESP and CRM.


This service offers a free option for using the subscription forms, as well as three pricing plans: Startup, Scale, Thrive. For the free mode, there is a limit on the number of views of the website's pages.


Users can choose from several types of forms for communicating with customers:

  • popup with a company banner (you can add a picture or GIF animation);
  • a shortcut button to call the form;
  • widget for getting quick feedback (with emoji);
  • a widget for rating a website on a 10-point scale;
  • a survey with answer options;
  • a form of demonstration of customer activity (for example, how many visitors view the product).

Additional features

You can create popup forms and edit templates in your Plerdy personal account. There you can also configure the conditions for displaying the widget (by audience and device type), and set a timer (after how long the visitor should see the form).
The user will be able to analyze the effectiveness of the display and track the moment when the number of form closures starts to increase sharply. This is a signal that you need to change its placement or set a different trigger time. All collected analytics can be exported in an Excel document or in CSV format.

Integration with Yespo

The service supports direct work with Yespo CDP as well as other systems.


The platform allows you to create various types of widgets, including subscription forms. Many email marketers like Sumo because of its free features, although the Free version of the platform includes Sumo's signature on the form. You can remove it in the Pro pricing plan. In addition, A/B testing is available only in this plan.

Statistics are collected and stored in your account for 30 days, but advanced analytics are not available in the free mode. There is no trial period for the paid plan. 


The user can choose different types and variants of widgets. For example, there is a subscription form embedded in the body of an article. This is useful for blogs or news and entertainment sites. You can also place the widget at the top or bottom of the page or fill the entire window (welcome mat). By the way, you can create a welcome mat with a CTA button and even a background video.

You can set up different conditions for displaying the popup:

  • a second after the website is loaded;
  • after the cursor moves to the address bar;
  • when the user scrolls through the entire page or half of it.

There is no direct integration of Sumo with Yespo, but the connection can be set up using the Zapier service.


In the Free mode, there are no restrictions on the number of subscribers you can collect using the form. However, the service offers a small selection of templates with Mailmunch branding.


Mailmunch templates can be customized. By working with the background, color of individual elements, and fonts, you can create a widget that matches the style of your website. All templates immediately support display on smartphones and tablets.

Available form types:

  • exit popup;
  • embedded form;
  • overlapping of all content;
  • top and bottom panels;
  • sidebars.

Segment the collected contact base by dividing subscribers into groups (age, gender, interests, behavioral patterns, etc.). This will help you to set up personalized communication and make more accurate offers. Using the collected data is easy with the functionality of Yespo Customer Data Platform: create customer profiles, build omnichannel workflows, segment contacts, implement product recommendations in newsletters and on the website.
