Mobile Pop-Up from Bleacher Report

Key Takeaways

  • Instead of dismissing pop-ups completely, try thinking about how you can actually provide the visitor with something valuable that they want at that very moment
  • If you can do that, you are in fact, helping them & giving them what they want while helping boost your conversions. It's a win-win.
  • In Bleacher Report's case, they simply created a pop-up with a variable headline. If they had a variable photo, it would be even more powerful.
  • This is an example of maintaining "scent" or maintaining consistent messaging & presentation based on the user's intent
  • Lastly, if you're going to be more generic with your offer, you might want to delay the pop-up more for the sake of user experience or only activate it on exit
