It’s always a good idea to let your website visitors scroll through your site in peace for a while. After all, they’re there to find something: information, a product, or a service.
To grab the attention of relevant visitors, consider adding a review popup. One of the most popular places review popups are added is the bottom right corner. It does not interfere with the experience, but grabs the attention of an interested visitor.
These types of review popups can be triggered either by the time they have spent on your site or by how much they have scrolled.
To make the experience even more effective, try targeting people from different locations with reviews from their area.
Exit-intent popups are widely used because they are a way of salvaging 10-15% of visitors one otherwise would have lost.
To make them even more powerful, you need to finetune the messaging. It should grab the person’s attention AND arise emotions in them.
The best way to do that is to use existing Google reviews from happy customers.
Most effective ways to combine reviews with exit-intent popup
- Offer a discount code, and spice it up with Google reviews from customers
- Get visitors to signup for the newsletter by showing what others think about you
- Highlight the benefits you offer by including product-specific reviews
