Before you can build a popup with Claspo, create an account on its website. Once done, you’ll be redirected to the Claspo dashboard where you’ll be able to create widgets and forms.
Claspo makes it super easy to build a widget; head over to your dashboard and click the New widget button to start creating. Enter a name for your widget, then choose from one of the following goals:
- Collect user data – gather information such as names and email addresses of your audience.
- Inform users – let your visitors know about existing discounts or upcoming products.
- Launch another widget – use the widget to direct users to another popup on your site.

Next, you get four layout types to choose from:
- Inline – embed the widget into any element of the webpage.

Additionally, Claspo lets you pick the color of the main button, title, and background, so you can build a widget based on your brand image.
Plus, you can choose whether you want the style to be minimalistic, artistic, classic, smooth, or modern.
Note: The workflow of creating a Claspo popup differs depending on the goal you choose. If your aim is to collect user data, you’ll get different options for building out your widget.
In the next step, you’ll be able to choose from ready-made templates you can edit as needed. The current range isn’t vast, but Claspo will soon update its Templates Library with new designs for its popups.
For design and personalization, Claspo offers an intuitive drag-and-drop editor. You can use it to:

Adding Claspo’s Script to Your Website
You can instantly display Claspo’s popup widgets on your site by installing its script on WordPress or adding it through Google Tag Manager (GTM).
Use the Insert Headers and Footers plugin to add the code on every page of your site, or manually add it to our WordPress files and integrate it in specific areas such as the header, footer, specific page, or specific post.
If you prefer using Google Tag Manager, follow this guide to install Claspo’s script. Note that you’ll need to create a trigger for your script in GTM for it to work properly.
Claspo also has a Chrome extension you can use to test widgets on any website without having the script installed.
To display your widget:
- Copy the script code and paste it into the plugin.
- Open your dashboard, create a widget, choose Published as its status and click Save.
- Reload the website, and you should see the widget there, live.
I especially love this aspect of Claspo. In analytics, you get a bird’s eye view of your popup performance. Claspo lets you track metrics like:
- Impression and views
- Target actions
- Conversion rate
- Desktop/mobile statistic
You can also use the joined features of Claspo and Google Analytics to upgrade the goals’ assessment or events tracking processes. Plus, you can view KPIs for specific periods such as today, last seven days, previous month, and all time.
Claspo supports a variety of integrations that help you view your popup data in other business systems. For example, you can transfer widget actions as custom events to Google Analytics. Claspo also supports integration with Mailchimp, SendGrid, Klaviyo, MailerLite, Pipedrive, Zapier via webhooks, and more.
Claspo comes with a suite of tools that makes popup customization a lot easier than the manual route. You don’t need to touch any code to tweak different aspects of your popup. Plus, you can use pre-built templates and elements like time delay triggers to make your pop-ups as effective as possible.
And as a cherry on top, Claspo integrates with a variety of email service providers and CRM. These integrations open up some really powerful functionality and let you access your popup data from one place.
