On-click WordPress popup forms are lightbox popups that appear whenever a user clicks a link, button, or image given on your website.

Significance Of On-Click Popup Forms

There is a psychological principle that says that when a user begins an activity, he is supposed to complete it as well most of the time. 

Hence, If a user has clicked on a link or button, it means that he has shown interest. Subsequently, when the pop-up form will appear in front of him, he is more likely to head towards filling it which in turn, will grow your inbox. 

The simplest way to generate an on-click popup is to employ WordPress’ popup plugin. 

One of the most popular WordPress popup plugin is OptinMonster. Let us see how to install and activate OptinMonster step-by-step. If you do not know how to install; hire WordPress Developer today!
