Editorial Note We may earn a commission when you visit links from this website.

Want to provide your target customers with the right offer at the right moment, and when the time is relevant for that? The timing of your marketing messages is crucial, and getting it right can significantly impact conversions.

But here’s the challenge: traditional popups can often feel obtrusive and disrupt the user experience. An ill-timed or intrusive popup can lead to user frustration and decreased engagement.

The answer lies in Divi Area Pro’s innovative scroll-event trigger for popups. It’s arguably the most considerate way to present a popup when users reach a specific part of a page, making it non-intrusive and highly effective.  

Without further ado, in this article from our ‘Divi Popup Triggers Explained’ series, we’ll discuss the scroll-event trigger, how this trigger converts visitors to leads and customers, and how you can use Divi Areas Pro to set a scroll-event trigger for your Divi popups.

What Are Scroll-Triggered Popups?

By now, you’re aware of just how powerful popups are, but at the same time, how obtrusive they can be for the entire user experience on websites. They can either earn you a new subscriber or alienate visitors as soon as they appear.

However, you will not push people away only if the popup appears at the right moment, which is often when visitors arrive at the certain place on your page. This is where the on-scroll popup can appear.

The after-scroll trigger works by triggering the popup when the page visitors scroll a predefined percentage of the page. This trigger can help you launch marketing campaigns to people who are actively showing some interest in your content and want to discover more by scrolling down.

In turn, this helps you segment website visitors, which improves lead generation efforts as a result and provides more value for visitors in the process.

How to Use Scroll-Event Popups

To make scroll-triggered popups as effective as possible, they need to appear at the right moment, but even more importantly, it is critical to appear within the right context and convey the right CTA and information in the process.

eCommerce CTAs

An after-scroll popup can help you get the most out of your calls-to-action because when the visitor sees the popup at the right moment after scrolling a particular part of the page, he/she can make the best decision at that exact moment.

Instead of waiting for the user to reach the ‘Buy’ or ‘Subscribe’ button at the bottom of the page, the scroll-event popup will display that CTA when someone reads a blog post explaining the product features or the product page description.

Email Lists Building

Are you making the most of your content? Do you encourage readers to sign up for your newsletter when reading your content? If not, you should! 

Email marketing is one of the best tactics to improve your lead generation and sales efforts, and a scroll-event popup can help you get more subscribers without being annoying for asking.

You can motivate people to subscribe to your email list by presenting them a popup with a sign-up form, particularly when users are finished reading an article or scrolling to the most relevant part of the content.

Creating a Scroll-Event Popup in Divi Areas Pro

Now that you know just how powerful the scroll-event can be for triggering popup campaigns, let’s review the simple steps you can take to create a scroll-triggered popup with our Premium extension for Divi websites, Divi Areas Pro.

Step 1 – After you’ve downloaded and installed Divi Areas Pro, the first step would be to create the content of your scroll-triggered popup with the Divi Builder. For this purpose, open a new Area and start customizing your content.

Step 2 – Once that’s ready, you need to navigate to the Divi Area Settings and choose the Area Type ‘Popup’.

Step 3 – The next thing you would need to do is configure the popup’s automatic on-scroll trigger that would display the popup after it senses that the user scrolled a particular % of the page.

Click on the ‘Trigger’ options, choose ‘Add New’, and choose the ‘On-Scroll’ option. This is where you can choose whether you prefer the on-scroll logic to be ‘Distance’ or ‘Element’.
