What are “Pop-Ups On Exit”
I’m sure you have all experienced it before, when leaving a website, a pop-up window that appears promoting either an offer, or an information snippet for you to read before actually leaving the website. Do not be confused, this is not your regular pop-up that loads when you visit a website, it is a pop-up message that appears only when the user of a website moves their mouse to leave the website, or to select another browser tab, from the top of their browser window. If you haven’t seen one of these pop-ups, no worries, in this post I will explain a bit more what they are all about and also be discussing the real benefits from using such pop-up marketing messages when targeting visitors to your website, who are in the process of leaving your website.
We are seeing this marketing strategy used more and more in modern web design, with great success. After all, these pop-up messages are not a hard faced sales pitch, they are simply informing the user of a current offer that you may be running, or informing the user of some key information on your business before leaving your website. A great example of this can be seen on our website, www.adiodigital.co.uk. If you load our website, then go to close the window browser down, or move your mouse to go to a new tab, a message appears informing the user, before they leave, that Adio Digital are currently offering 25% off all digital marketing services.
