Mobile Exit Intent
So, what is mobile exit intent? Have you ever visited a webpage and as you moved your mouse away from the page, you got a pop up? That’s mobile exit intent technology. It’s a way to capture your readers’ attention one final time before they leave your site.
Now, this can take many different forms but it often involves pop up advertising of some sort.
How does exit intent work?
On mobile, as your reader scrolls up to the top of the page, they are presented with some type of pop up advertising. This can be a subscription box to encourage them to subscribe to your newsletter. Or, it can be a request to follow you on social media. It may even be a coupon code that they can use to encourage them to purchase your product.
One challenge with traditional programs is that they don’t work on mobile. When you’re on your desktop, it’s your mouse’s movement that triggers the pop up advertising. For mobile exit intent, there is no mouse to trigger an action.
However, OptinMonster has a mobile exit intent ability that captures your readers’ movement as they scroll to the top of the page.
Not only does it have a scroll up trigger, but it also has a back button trigger that works the same way. These are the two most common ways your readers leave your site via mobile.
Do exit popups work?
When it comes to mobile exit-intent popups or any other type of pop up advertising, it all depends on how it’s structured. You don’t want to overwhelm your reader with slide-ins and popups and ads. But, a strategically placed popup that they can easily close out of if they want to can be very helpful.
