With the NEW Popup Builder, you can create highly professional popups!

Engaging visitors and learners has never been easier

As a user, you hate popups. As a marketer, you love popups. But what if we could change all that for the better?

Popups are remarkably effective for collecting leads, notifying users, and increasing conversion for any online business. Yet, historically, popups presented three critical issues for online schools:

So no wonder why, as users, we find them annoying. We believe that our LearnWorlds school owners and their students deserve better. So how to fix all that and make popups clever, beautiful, and valuable for both users and school owners?

We’ll go through 20+ Popups Ideas to Copy in Your LearnWorlds School and many suggestions to be a savvy marketer!

The familiar interface you love… plus popups!

The newborn Popup Builder provides the most intuitive way to build and manage beautiful popups for your LearnWorlds school. Our dev team created an easy workflow, entirely manageable in one single and familiar interface, your LearnWorlds Site Builder.

If you already have a LearnWorlds school, you can add popups as part of your usual web building process. There’s no need to spend money on a new plugin, no need to learn how to use a new platform, and no concerns about data.

Creating a highly professional design and maintaining brand consistency across all visual elements is fundamental for any school’s online presence. Therefore, having one single design interface that manages your online school design and your popup design is the only way to properly achieve this.

With LearnWorlds Popup Builder, all four components of great popups are streamlined in one workflow:


And you’re ready to engage with your users!

Expert advice: Have a goal in mind first

Do you want to notify the users of a discount? Expand your mailing list? Invite them to a webinar? Download a piece of content before they leave? Be clear on your goal before you proceed. And remember: one popup, one action. Any additional action would just confuse your audience.

Boost your Popup Content

With LearnWorlds’ versatile Popup Builder, you can create beautiful popups and engage your users. For example, you can:

You can start from the many designer-made and ready-to-use templates or build your own. Add, mix and match any widget, copy, images, or videos you want! We got for you ready animations, CTA buttons, social links, timers, vector graphics…

Look & Feel: Create a design that stands out

Use the Popup Builder‘s styling capabilities to create and fine-tune your engaging popups!

You can take inspiration from the designer-made, ready-to-use templates available and adjust the layout until it’s just perfect for what you want to achieve. Of course, they all adapt to any device your users prefer.

With the Popup Builder, you can also customize the design surrounding your popup. You have complete control over the layout (height, width, horizontal and vertical alignment), styling options for the X-button, and the overlay. We got designs for any use, fun animations to attract attention, and overlays for extra focus.

You can choose between:

Use its various widgets, mobile editing tools, and advanced customization to really make your popups stand out!

Tailor your message to your audience

These settings help determine to whom the popup appears. To make this decision, you want to answer questions like:

You can simply select the audience you want: logged-in or out and any tag you may have previously created to segment your contacts.

Set up your triggers and conditions to decide when your popup should appear

On behalf of all the web users out there, I beg you not to prompt me to subscribe to your mailing list the very moment I land on your site for the first time. Be a savvy marketer instead, and take advantage of all the settings that we have carefully created to make your users like you and your site even more.

Triggers and conditions help set off popups based on user actions. You can select the pages where you want the popup to be seen and whether you want it to appear after a certain amount of time the page loads, or after a certain percentage of page scroll, on click, detected user inactivity, or even exit intent.

Take advantage of the targeting engine we built and segment popups according to page-based, time-based, device-based & visitor-based targeting options:

For example:

Once you are happy with your creation, test it and let your popup… pop up!

Popup analytics

If you thought that this was it, well, you were wrong (sorry). Why? Well, because we don’t just claim that popups are engaging.

You can actually see it with your own eyes. For each popup you create, you can monitor views, conversions, and time-open evolution over time.

This is extremely important to get to know your audience preferences and test different types of popups to see which one works best for you!

The built-in Popup Builder that Does It All

Forget about the boring, annoying popups. Experiment with what works best for you and engage your learners!
