Today, I have curated a list on the 8 Best free popup creator software (plugins) for WordPress after great trial, testing and research. So let’s dive deep into it….

What are popups on websites? How are Popups helpful?

As the name suggests, pop-ups are a hidden part of a website which suddenly pop on your screen according to the conditions set by the admin. They are a good way to capture people’s email to drive extra traffic to your blog.

Popups can be of any types, like Login popups, newsletter sign up popups, popups to offer discount to users etc…..

With the emails captured with your popups, you can send out newsletters and freebies so that people come back to your site. This gives a good impression to Google.

Returning visitors are more important than new visitors because they are the one who are loyal readers.
