As long as you have the right software in place and are collecting the right information about your customer, you can use these tips to ensure that there is an increased open rate on emails and an increased click-through ratio. These kinds of tips for personalizing newsletters and emails will be able to convert open baskets into sales.
1) Bold Pop-Up DesignAn effective exit pop-ups is all about grabbing attention. Bold and clean designs generally perform well because they stand out while still showcasing the main message. The design of your exit pop-up should attract visitors to read your marketing message, not to distract visitors from reading the content. A full screen pop-up and big text make sure that visitors see your call-to-action message. Here’s a good example of a full screen exit pop-up to bring visitors’ entire focus to the action of getting the coupon code.
2) Actionable Headlines
Since exit Pop-Ups will only “fire” to visitors who are leaving your site, personalize the headline to speak directly to them. Commonly we see headlines like “Wait, Don’t Go!” or “Before you go”, and truth be told, that can make visitors uncomfortable. However, we do suggest creating the sense of a missing out. So if one doesn’t leave a contact point with you, saying “Free Shipping on your first order, valid today only!” could be very convincing.
Use short headlines that are easy to understand and clearly show what you want to offer. Keeping in mind that your visitor is about to leave, only a clear and direct message will stop them from going.
3) An Attractive Offer
Though giving away margin isn’t ideal, clients are more inclined to take action when they have something to gain. Our research shows that 2 out of 3 clients will subscribe for a value proposition that includes direct or indirect financial benefits. So, make it worth it for them to stay connected with you!
Common incentives for your exit pop-up are discounts, free shipping, contests and downloading a piece of useful content. Including an incentive on your exit intent pop-up will reward you with higher subscription of up to 6x.
Consider this an initial investment to increase the lifetime value (LTV) of a client by sacrificing up front cost of acquisition. A small discount to win a repeating client is worth a temporary decrease in margin.
