What is Local Storage?

Local Storage objects are small pieces of data stored in the web browser, similar to cookies or Session Storage objects, are unique to a specific site, and can be accessed by typing `window.localStorage` in a browser console.

Local Storage objects have no expiration date and can only be removed using JavaScript or by clearing the browser’s cache.

All Local Storage objects have a key and a value. For example, a Local Storage object could be eat=pizza

OptinMonster has transformed our business. Before integrating their optins, our clients saw a 2% conversion rate from web traffic, which is slightly above the standard for their industry. With the integration of OptinMonster’s lightbox popup, exit-intent technology, split testing, and other tools, our client’s conversion rates soared by an unprecedented 500%. They attracted substantially more customers while spending less on digital advertising. Their success propelled them to the top of their markets, outperforming national chains and other medical spas with much bigger marketing budgets. Our client’s success in their market has distinguished us in our own. We are now one of the most sought-after marketing firms in the industry of aesthetic medicine. We know that the integration of OptinMonster, more than any other tool or marketing strategy, has supported this growth and achievement.

Through OptinMonster’s exit-intent popups, we have more than doubled our sales conversion rate. Best of all is the compound effect of using OptinMonster over a long period of time—more conversions mean more customers, which means more word of mouth.
