Popups are a powerful way to grab attention and engage users who visit your website on their mobile device.

Why a Postscript Mobile Popup Benefits You

  • Easily (and compliantly) collect SMS and email subscribers.
  • Design your popup to match the look and feel of your brand.
  • Use your popup to provide discounts, promote a giveaway or contest, or invite subscribers to join your exclusive VIP club.
  • Enable mobile two-touch which allows subscribers to opt-in with just a tap.
  • Add engaging background images or GIFs to catch the attention of your website visitors.

Create a Mobile Popup

Postscript allows you to create and maintain multiple mobile popups, though only one mobile popup can be enabled at any given time.

  1. Select Acquisition in the side menu of your Postscript dashboard, then select Popups.
  2. Select Create Popup in the top-right corner of the page, then select Mobile from the drop-down options.

Design Your Popup

Postscript makes it easy to customize your mobile popup, from the behavior, design, and content. Check out the tabs below for more information.

Behavior Design Content Confirmation Preview

Your mobile popup basics serve as the foundation for your popup and the popup's behavior on your mobile website.

  • Name. Choose a name that speaks to the offer in your popup. This name displays in the list of available popups on your main Popups page.
  • Collection. You have the option to collect only phone numbers, or phone and email. For phone and email, you can choose which popup page displays first and second. We recommend you set the phone page to display first.
  • Two Touch. Changes the phone input field to a button. When subscribers tap the button, it launches their messaging app with an auto-generated message they must send in order to verify their phone number.
    • Keyword. If you enable two-touch, you will need to pick a keyword to associate with the opt-in. You can create a new keyword or choose an existing one.
  • Countries. Choose which countries should see the popup. 
  • Popup Size. You have three options for your popup type: PartialFullscreen, or Banner.
  • Popup Delay. Define how long a popup should wait before appearing. We recommend a 3-second delay. The longer the delay, the lower the conversion rate.
  • Close Action. Choose what happens when a customer exits your popup.
    • Exit closes the popup entirely.
    • Bubble minimizes the popup to a small image in the bottom-left corner of the page. Visitors can access the popup later if they change their minds about subscribing.
      • Close Action Text. Edit the text that appears on the minimized bubble popup.
  • Include Pages. If you wish for the popup to display on specific sub-pages (aside from your main webpage), you can select those pages from the drop-down.
  • Exclude Pages. If you want to ensure the popup doesn't display on specific pages, you can select those pages from the drop-down.

Enable Your Mobile Popup

Once you have designed your mobile popup, it's time to enable it. You can do so from the main popup page or from the specific popup page.

Simply select the toggle besides Mobile Popup so it is green and reads Enabled to the right of the toggle.

Advanced Popup Design Customization

If you wish to further customize your mobile popup, you can do so using CSS code. We have created a few resources that will walk you through that process.
