What are B2B popups?

B2B popups are website popup campaigns used by companies that sell products or services to other businesses (SaaS, automotive, logistics, consulting, etc.). Just like in B2C, B2B popups serve as an additional onsite channel for visitor engagement.

Examples of B2B popups

Here are some of the most common and effective examples of B2B popups businesses use, in no particular order.

1. A service promotion popup (Tebra)

b2b popup example

Tedra is a SaaS business that offers healthcare marketing tools. This popup drives their leads (healthcare practitioners) to a page where they can use a free tool to compare their online presence (in Google results, review platforms, etc.) with local competitors.

2. A software demo signup popup (Wisepops)

Wisepops is our onsite marketing platform that includes popups, so it's no surprise we use them on our website. This campaign allows visitors on our website to sign up for a personalized demo and provide some details about their needs.

Also, note that it's an on-click popup, meaning it appears only when a visitor clicks the "Book a demo" button:

On-click popups are perfect for creating signup forms on websites because you can place them on any page and connect with your lead management solution.

3. A video demo signup popup (Zendesk)

This demo signup popup is different: unlike Wisepops, Zendesk leads visitors to the dedicated demo page where they provide details needed to choose a relevant video demonstration. So, basically, it's a campaign that drives traffic to the demo page.

4. An in-app popup with trial expiration message (Luigi's Box)

Luigi's Box is a product recommendation software. I got this message on the day the 30-day free trial expired.

Note the section with the social proof—this is a good way to motivate a potential user to switch to a paid subscription. Just as the section with the advantages of the paid plan.

5. A webinar registration popup (Cin7)

Cin7, an inventory management software, uses this campaign to increase registrations for an upcoming webinar. It's an important one, too—Cin7's founder will be explaining how their newly acquired AI inventory tool will be incorporated into the existing functionality.

6. An announcement popup on mobile (Cin7)

b2b mobile popup

The previous Cin7 popup promoted a webinar on the acquisition of a new AI tool, and this one continues that strategy. But it promotes a news announcement about the acquisition, to give readers more info on why they need to attend the webinar.

It's a good example of a non-intrusive mobile B2B mobile popup—and how creating different campaigns for desktop and mobile visitors can help achieve more goals.
