This article will explain different types of 'Behaviour Triggers' made by users on websites. These triggers can be considered as Exit intent. Exit intent means the user is about to exit the website. Using these behavior triggers you can immediately grab attention of the user by popups or notifications. This technique will improve conversion rate of your website.

Many people made the demand of Exit intent technology tutorial and details about how to create them.

Everyone works hard to bring visitors to your site. But in reality, many websites have an incredibly high bounce rate or abandonment rate. So, when a high intent visitor is checking out the website but decides to leave without converting or buying anything, the concept of exit intent lets you present that visitor with an offer (or something like subscription form for newsletter) on their way out. This way out can find out by behavior triggers. 

It's essentially a last ditch effort to get that visitor to convert while on your website or landing page. It's an incredibly effective method of increasing conversions and decreasing bounce rate. Exit Intent has always delivered 10% to 40% improvement in website conversions.

Here I will show how to create exit intent popup on various user actions (or behavioral Triggers). You can remove popups with other message types like action bars, messengers, toast notifications. Currently, I used popup message type for all triggers.

What are the types of different Behavior Triggers?

Triggers are divided into 2 main types i.e show triggers and hide triggers
