When creating a popup with the Popup Builder block from The Plus Blocks for Gutenberg you get the popup trigger element options within the block. 

While it is a great option but at times you might want to have the trigger element outside the popup or you might want to use some custom elements like an image as the popup trigger element. You can absolutely do that with the Popup Builder block using CSS classes.
