Grow leads & drive sales with exit overlays & popups

With a beautifully designed exit overlay, brands can have a one last go at their visitors to convince them.

How to Use Exit Intent Overlays

1

Determine your goal

Figure out your CTA

Create a beautiful design

4

Write copy that converts

Determine your goal

Step 1: Determine your goal

You need to be clear about your goals. Identify your target audience and set the goals for different categories of visitors. Some people might be interested in a particular type of product or offers while others might be looking for assistance/help related to your products & services.

Figure out your CTA

Step 2: Figure out your CTA

CTA will be different for various pages of your website. Figure out the most effective CTA for landing pages, product pages, checkout/cart pages, blog pages, and so on to give your visitors a solid reason to choose you over the competitors.

Create a beautiful design

Step 3: Create a beautiful (and powerful!) design

Keeping a beautiful, clear, and minimalistic design that leaves a powerful impression on your visitors should be your focus. No need to go all fancy with eye-stressing fonts or colors. Go for brand name/logo, and use creative multi-step options to make it more interactive. Place the [X] button in the corner so that the users click on the outside of the popup window.

Write copy that converts

Step 4: Write copy that converts

The content that goes in the pop-up will command visitors’ attention. Make the copy all about incentivizing and helping visitors, and try to incorporate some trigger words/phrases like stop, wait, hold on, join, don’t miss this, before you go/leave, etc., to increase the chances of conversion. While using these words, highlight them in bold fonts so that they stand out.
