3 Effective Use Cases of Yes / No Popups in Joomla

Lately a new trend has sprung into existence for your Conversion Optimization strategy. This trend is the Yes / No Popup and Joomla users should rejoice because they are able to very easily create a Yes / No Popup with Engage Box as we announced in this blog post.

But, what is the reason a simple popup like that has become a trend? Let's see.

The Zeigarnik Effect

For any kind of process or procedure out there, the major factor for its success has been SIMPLICITY. People's tolerance of taking complex decisions has grown very thin. Their reaction to complex decision making is to avoid it as fast as possible. On the other hand, the Yes / No Popup offers an increasingly valuable simplicity which visitors in your Joomla website can click through effortlessly.

Now you might ask, what is the point in using a Yes / No Popup if they click Yes and leave right after?. The answer to this logical question is simple. The chances of them leaving if they choose Yes are stacked against them! Why? Because of the Zeigarnik Effect!

In a few words, the Zeigarnik effect states that people remember uncompleted or interrupted tasks better than completed tasks. This can only mean increased CTR (click-through-rate) and increased CRO (conversion rate optimization) for your Joomla website with just a simple Yes / No Popup!

Effective examples

With Engage Box providing such a simple and fast way to create a Yes / No Popup, your own imagination is the only limit on how many different popups you can come up with. To give you a start, try the couple of proven examples below.

1. Offer Content Upgrade

The Content Upgrade offer is ideal particularly for all the Joomla Publishers. The premise is that when a visitor has been reading an article for a certain time, it is relatively most likely to be interested in reading your premium content as well.

Then all you have to do is to create a Yes / No Popup which will trigger after a minute or two, asking the reader if he would be interested in receiving a content upgrade. Whether you use a discount or not, it's entirely up to you. However, a discount or a trial will certainly help towards converting him.
