Background color or image
You can add a background color or image to each section of your pop-up by clicking on Pop-Up Layout in the left-hand sidebar, or simply hover over your pop-up and click the pencil icon in the top-left corner of the pop-up.
Open the section drop-down, then click the gear icon to navigate to the section's style settings.
Setting up your form
Each pop-up includes a form widget by default. In most cases, you’ll want to customize the following parts of your form:
- your integration settings: where you’re sending lead data
- your form fields: what information you collect from visitors
- follow-up: what happens after someone submits your form
For details on customizing and setting up your form widget, please see our article here: The Form Widget.
Publishing your pop-up
Now that you’ve created your pop-up, it’s time to publish it to your site. Click Publish in the top-right corner of the pop-up builder to explore the available options. For a full guide on publishing your pop-up, please see Publishing your pop-ups.

Can I use standalone pop-ups on a landing page or site?
You can paste any pop-up's code into an HTML widget on your page. At this time, we don’t have a way to connect standalone pop-ups to existing buttons or elements on pages.
