How To Reduce User Exits & Shopping Cart Abandonment in WordPress


User exits and Shopping cart abandonment are probably two of the main metrics that define failure for your website, both in organic traffic as well as revenue gen. With so many distractions going on, it is common for users to have multiple tabs open and not return to your website. For e-com sites built on WordPress, this is a challenge.

Here’s a neat way to reduce user browser exits and reduce shopping cart abandonment in WordPress.

Simply use this plugin called RetentionTab. It has a neat way to bring abandoned users back. Whenever a user forgets your website and don’t return back (leaving it open and idle), this plugin automatically detects it and shows a custom flashing message in the browser tab, which can be clearly seen by the user, gets his attention and possibly will bring him back to your website tab.

Here’s how the plugin will work it’s magic.

The powerful thing about this plugin is that the message can be customized. So let’s say you are an e-com site running on WordPress, then you can flash a discount or a custom offer for the abandoned user. Ex: “Come back and get 10% off on your purchase!”. Getting creative about it will offer more optimization options.
