1. Suitable Layout
All the times, it’s not necessary to follow conventional popups view which we usually experienced in middle of the screen and concealing the important content beneath.
And of course, that might be the possible reason behind the customer distraction and leaving the popup in fraction of second.
I would be glad to suggest, some of the unconventional popup views which can help to change your conversion rate.

Here it is:

Sticky: Appears at the edge of your website, the position doesn't change.(Example: header sticky bar, Footer bar etc.)
Sticky Popup

Tab view: Small tab appears on edge of your website page which happens to be a toggle switch to on/off pop up view. Tab Based Popup

Fixed: Appears fixed on your web page no matter where users are surfing, scrolling etc. (let's say fixed at top-right corner) Fixed Position Popup

Default view: Appears over your website, covering the content beneath. Landing Page Popup

Test different popup views for the different campaign and figure out which type of popup driven campaign works best for you.
And — boom — you're set.

2. Meaningful Design
Someone rightly quoted:
"There are three responses to a piece of design – yes, no, and WOW! Wow is the one to aim for."

Let's discuss what’s really matters for popup design?

  • Box dimensions: You should be careful while determining pop-up box dimensions which depend on content to show. A popup box shouldn't be too large that it covers most of the site content under it.
  • Box background: You may keep it very simple like the white dashboard or you have to place background imagery. Simply adding a relevant, appealing image to your pop-up can make a massive difference to the conversion rate.
  • Box border, corner, shadow: Do you know which type of border, shadow etc. work to better your pop-up’s conversion rate? Neither do I. That’s one more reason to test everything: border, corner shaping, shadow and any other attribute you can control.

3. Content Crafting
Content precedes design. Additionally, Design in the absence of content is not design, it’s decoration. That’s why, impressive, straightforward and convincible content can also be the good contributor to convert your visitor into customer.

So how to craft your content exceptionally good?

  • Beautifully designed headline: Clear, relevant and specific content usually works well. Check out several different headlines to figure out suitable most for you. Once you’ve identified a good headline, try a few variations of the headline font, text size, color and style and line breaks until you become conclusive that reads clearly.
  • Body content: It really becomes the cause to click CTA (call to action) button and helps to maximize your conversions. Popup body content should be terse and informative with the relevant image to make it more convincible.
  • Call to action: One click on it and you've very well optimized and taken care above mentioned points. Rather sticking to old-fashioned 'Submit' button, every time try something related text (Example: 'Get Advantage Now', 'Be A Member' etc.) with an elegant design that can get user attention.

Bottom line?
These well bound tricks mean a more standardized look and experience for web popups. It also means more importance on popup rendering settings, personalized content, and segmentation that give you an edge over others. It's high time you try out these if you haven't already.
