Leave That Page

by Kristi on September 24, 2010 · Money Saving Tips


One of the best money saving tips I can give you when purchasing products off of a squeeze page is to leave that page. Don’t just buy it now on your first visit. The worst case scenario of what will happen when you close that window or tab is that nothing will happen, and the tab will close.

Now the BEST case scenario, which I have seen happen on a lot of squeeze pages, is that you will receive an additional offer to stay on the page.

So far I have seen the following on a variety of squeeze page products:

  • Additional $ or % off.
  • Additional free bonuses.
  • A free trial offer or an extended trial offer.

All of these are worth closing the page, just to be sure. I have even seen one site that if you tried to close out the second time, you get an additional deal on top of the first offer. Of course, that was only once, and on most sites, if you close out of the second offer, you don’t get it back again. Should that happen though, just open the site in another browser, and you’re all set!

Great tip! It’s like threatening to leave the car dealership – suddenly they will have a new offer to coax you into staying!

Thanks for posting this little secret. My hope is enough people will become aware and I can go Reverse Ninja on everyone and stop having to design these in. These offers are kind of like how every concert I’ve gone to in years where the band holds back at least one of their best songs to save for the encore.

If you come back out for an encore every show its not really an encore. Just play the damn songs! If every pinch page offers a secret special offer, they aren’t secret special offers any more.

As a visitor to a website I absolutely can’t stand having these annoying pop up boxes appear to keep me from leaving. For me it only re-assures that I won’t purchase anything at that site.

Hey Kristi,

Great Tip! I always leave the page before buying a product, and 9 times out of 10 it is discounted.
