What are Exit popups:

Exit popups play an important role in convincing users why they should not leave our site. With proper knowledge and understanding, companies can assure users what kind of benefits they are going to get. For companies, if they are constantly experiencing high volumes of bounce rates. They can figure out where they are going wrong and what steps to be taken care. These are few examples, let us discuss more in detail. Exit popups can be useful for endless reasons. Just remember how big giants like Amazon and Filip kart show the kind of exit popups during Big billion days etc.

Exit popup is a message or content which can be shown to users who are almost attempting to exit from the website. With good and precise valuable information making customers to fill the form or driving to browsing the website instead of exit. It is like a final message to the user who is almost leaving.

Discount or coupons: If we give special discounts, users may change their minds and buy a product instead of leaving the site. It helps for paid traffic. For e-commerce, we can place them on product pages, landing pages, signup page etc depending on the product and company.

Seasonal offers:

Shipping: We can also attract them by giving free shipping where our competitors are not doing it. Once mention it on the home page or write some good blog article about it and share on social platforms.

Social media:

As everyone is aware of this digital age, social proof is very important for any business to grow and perform well. So we can build brand awareness and trust showing how many people have already liked your site. A good message something like “please join us in the community”.

An attractive and a good image improves more user engagement.

Newsletter: Some websites as soon as users come to their site they collect or ask users to fill to reforms taking email address. And personalizing with the name is some of the driving factors.
