I tracked down a Sumo customer who sells flavored water and has had 633,901 views on one popup that generated 43,096 email signups.
I asked their digital marketing manager to send me stats on how many people have claimed the 15% discount code on this popup, as well as the sales they have made. I found out that the company has made $335,288 in one year from this one popup (see proof below).
These sales don’t account for return visits from these customers; this is $335,288 from first-time customers only. This popup shows up five seconds after you’ve been on the homepage if you haven’t seen a popup in three months. Here’s what it looks like:
The popup above uses Sumo’s Border design template. 43,096 people entered their email, and 5,239 claimed the discount code NEW15 (that’s shown on the success popup below) to make a purchase.
What’s so fascinating about this case study is that’s it. When you click the “Continue” button, the popup closes, and you go back to the homepage. And the follow-up email is a simple welcome email that doesn’t even mention the discount code.
You don’t even need the paid version of Sumo to do this. All you have to do is follow these steps to test if it works for your eCommerce business:

Simple and effective (two of my favorite words in marketing).
