How to Create an ActiveCampaign Popup For Free

ActiveCampaign offers limited form-building options for its users who want to collect customer emails from their websites.

To elevate the process, you can use Popupsmart to create an ActiveCampaign popup for free and use various design and targeting options with a simple integration process.

Follow the steps below to learn how to create an ActiveCampaign popup for free.

To start the integration process, you need to have some default features:

• You need to have an ActiveCampaign account.

• There is a default ‘Master Contact List’ on ActiveCampaign to collect your contact. Yet, if you want to have a specific contact list, you can create one by clicking Contacts, then Lists, to add a list.

• You need to verify your website on your Popupsmart account.

1. After signing in to your Popupsmart account, click the “Create a new campaign” button. Then, you can choose a ready-to-convert popup template or a blank popup for an effective popup campaign.

2. To start the integration process, you need one of the Form Input elements. So, you can either choose a popup with a form input element or add one. Then, on the Customize step, click on the related element.

A form input element helps you only collect the data that your visitors or customers share with you on your popup. So, the integration hosts the carrying of data to the related CRM.

These fields may change according to the elements you include.

✅ Form Field: It is used if you put one of the form elements in your popup. If you don't use any form element, you will see 'No options' on the dropdown.

✅ System Field: You need to choose your option based on what you demand to get as data. For example, you can get the Browsers or Devices of the people who filled the popup.

✅ API Field: You can transfer the data you sent to Popupsmart JS API with the integration again. You can get your data from your ActiveCampaign account.

✅ Static Field: You need to determine the specific data you want. For example, you may want to have sales or downgrades so that you can put them as 'sales' or 'downgrades'.
