4th Rule: Call to Action

Every exit-intent popup has to include some sort of Call-to-Action.

It is not there just so the visitor knows where to click – it’s there to make him do it. Remember to give visitor a choice. You don’t want to close him in a box without visible close button and tortured by flashing CTA button. Show confidence, that your offer is good and worth his time.
