Adding a Pop-up or Lightbox form to a Beaver Builder button

Here we look at two ways to add a “two step opt-in” form to a Beaver Builder button. The first video uses a free lightweight plugin called Popup Maker. The second features the Modal module from PowerPack. One of the best of the new premium addons for Beaver Builder… that does so so much more too.

The Free Way with Popup Maker.

This video was recorded before PowerPack was released.

The PowerPack way

This video was made by my good and clever friend Colin Cartwright. He’s the person who converted me to Beaver Builder (that’s a huge debt). If you have not checked out his Dynamik Beaver blog you really should.

Here, he gives an overview of  Power Pack’s modal module and shows how to create the same effect as in my video but more conveniently within Beaver Builder.

Which is best?

For creating lightbox forms –  it’s a tie!. Popup Maker is truly excellent and free, but I bought PowerPack I will be using this from now on.

Funny, I bought PowerPack on the day it was released thinking that I may have wasted my money. Now (in a very short time) they have added modules I don’t think I could live without. I’m pleased I grabbed the lifetime deal.
