What is an Exit-Intent Pop Up?

Exit-intent means when a visitor is about to leave your website. An exit-intent Pop Up is displayed when a visitor decides to bounce.

It is used to collect more forms, generate more email subscribers, and reduce cart abandonment by showing a popup once a visitor's cursor leaves the frame of your website.

Common exit-intent Pop Up strategies include:

  • Offering a discount code or coupon

  • Creating a free eBook or guide to download

  • Encouraging visitors to read reviews or watch testimonials

  • Directing them to a new site tool

How does it help?

When the visitors for any reason are about to leave your store, the Pop Up will appear right before they can do that. In this way, it will distract their exit intention. At this point, you can offer them an instant discount promo code to convert into a successful conversion or just simply ask them to leave information (email/ phone number) for future promotion.

The most lucrative benefits to effective exit intent strategies are:

  • Email list growth: exit-intent popups that ask for an email address can encourage 4% to 7% of your site visitors to join your list. That could lead to two new email addresses for every 100 site visitors.

  • Improved conversion rates: average conversion rates are 3.09%, but the best popups can have conversion rates from 10% to 60% if you optimize them properly.
