The 7 Best Exit Intent Popup Plugins For WordPress (2018)

Pop-Ups convert well. But they are annoying. People don’t like those boxes while reading content. And sometimes, they might even scare the readers away.

That’s why Exit-Intent Pop-Up came to the scenario. The idea is to show the pop-up when readers are about to leave the page. It's not only increases the conversion rate but also decreases the bounce rate.

Here at RoadToBlogging, I am using Exit-Intent Pop-Up for getting both subscribers and affiliate sales. And it works GREAT. In fact, it helps me to convert visitors into loyal followers.

If you are planning to use the exit-intent pop-up on your blog, you are in the right place. In today’s post, I am going to introduce you to the 7 best exit-intent pop-up WordPress plugins for increasing conversion rate.

1. Thrive Leads Exit Intent

Let’s start the list with Thrive Leads, the only tool we use to show exit-intent popups here at RoadToBlogging.

        I am deadly delighted hearing this from you. As a new blogger, I really need your help. I will contact you through your contact page.

  • Hey brother,
    After your recommendation recently I had installed “Yeloni Exit Popup” in one of my sites. But the plugin developer cheating with all the plugins users by putting her AdSense code in after subscribe page, redirected page and so on (however its free!). I’ve utilized a couple of hours on this plugin’s customization, but the free version is really very worst! I’d like to request you to remove this plugin name from your recommendation. Thanks.

    • Jayasri says:

      Hello Masud,

      Thanks for trying out Yeloni pop ups. I am Jayasri, I built the Yeloni plugin.

      You are right about the adsense on the redirect page. We try to keep the plugin free and pay salaries at the same time!! :)

      Professional bloggers and business websites can remove the redirect page with a premium add-on.

      However I do understand your concern about the adsense on the redirect page. I will be happy to completely remove that if you can share any other non-intrusive monetization ideas.

      Looking forward to hearing from you.

      Thanks.
      Have a happy day ahead.

      Jayasri

        Hello Jayasri,
        Thanks for your response! But at the moment I don’t want to use any premium add-on for your plugin. There are a huge premium alternative on the market and am decided to grab one of them. Keep fine.

      • anand says:

        Hello Jayasri,

        this is not a good practice and Google even bans the site using this type of activities.

        Try to make your plugin so good that people take paid subscription rather then triking the users.
