How to create an Exit Intent Popup

Exit Intent is a great functionality to make your visitors stay when they want to leave the website.

It is not a separate popup type, but a functionality, which you can find inside of any popup type when the extension is added. To be able to use this functionality you need to create any popup and add the function there using "Events" section.

Exit Intent extension can be purchased either within the bundles or as a single extension.

Once purchased it should be installed like this:
• In case of the bundle click here.
• In case it was purchased as a single extension click here.

The key tool of the Exit Intent Popup is the Events section

Create popup of any type, navigate to the Events section and select Exit Intent from the dropdown menu and the Mode to work for.

Mode types to choose from:

Soft mode - This mode enables you to show the Popup when the user is going to navigate away from your site.

Aggressive mode - This mode allows you to show an alert box when a user tries to close the tab and only then a Popup will appear.

Soft and Aggressive modes - This will enable both of the modes depending on the action that is triggered first. When a visitor tries to leave the website, the Popup will appear. When the visitor doesn’t close the Popup and tries to close the tab, the alert box will appear.

Aggressive without Popup - This will only open an alert box without a Popup.

Go to the Settings section and specify the Expiry time for the Exit Intent functionality.

If the expiry time is set -1 day, the Popup will open with the Exit Intent event anytime the programming language detects the intention of a visitor to exit a page.

Page level cookie saving - If this option is checked, the technology saves cookie information for each page separately.

But if the Page level cookie saving option is not checked, the cookie information will refer sitewide.

If the Detect exit only from the top bar option is checked, the exit-intent functionality will work only if the mouse pointer moves to the top bar.

The result.

The Exit Intent works on mobile too, but with another logic. The popup will show once the user switches the tabs and once the back button is pressed.
