Most newbies who buy Thrive Architect think that they need to buy another Thrive plugin called “Thrive Leads” in order to show popups. But this is not true, you can easily setup popups using the “Thrive Lightbox” feature of Thrive Architect. Even though you will not get ready made popup templates but it will save you an additional $67.
In some cases it is better to show a subscription form via a popup instead of directly embedding it on the page. Because when a user sees they he or she will need to fill out a form to get the subscription/free e-book etc. they might be turned off. Showing the form in a popup form might improve the conversion rate as the popup removes all the distraction and prompts the user to signup the form only.
In this blog post, I will show you step by step how you can use Thrive Architect only to set up an on click popup form in a Thrive Architect landing page. The popup will have have an opt-in or signup form, and a nice progress bar at the top of the form showing “Almost Finished”
