Are you an eCommerce business struggling to increase sales or capture leads? In this case study, we’ll learn how Cosmetic Capital gains 770 leads every week using OptinMonster’s Floating Bar feature.

Meet Cosmetic Capital

Cosmetic Capital is an eCommerce website specializing in affordable, trendy cosmetics from around the globe. Located in Sydney, Australia, Cosmetic Capital stocks over 3500 beauty items with a focus on providing great quality, service, and pricing to customers.

Cosmetic Capital

Cosmetic Capital started using OptinMonster in 2017. They were looking for a tool to create custom popups and increase their leads. What appealed to them most with OptinMonster was:

  1. How easy it is to build high-quality popups; and
  2. Our helpful support team.

When we started using OptinMonster, we were looking for a solution that would offer us customizable popups to increase our database. We knew that database acquisition was crucial for our business, and after limited success with a competitor, we were drawn to OptinMonster’s well-reknown platform to design really impressive popups.

How Cosmetic Capital Uses Scarcity to Increase Leads

At first, Cosmetic Capital tried out several popup options. These popups focused on list building and reducing abandonment.

Their first Lightbox popup saw a respectable 7-8% conversion rate.

In late 2017, Cosmetic Capital changed tactics. They added a Floating Bar campaign, detailing an offer (e.g. free mascara with your Maybelline product purchase today). Again, this campaign brought good conversion rates. But, they needed greater conversions for quick, scalable growth.

Finally, in early 2018 they had a light bulb idea. Cosmetic Capital made ground-breaking changes to their Floating Bar campaign:

  • Changed the template to Countdown Timer; and
  • Included a sign-up form alongside the timer.

These changes were paired with a carefully laid marketing plan. This allowed Cosmetic Capital to:

  • Stress the urgency of the website offer; and
  • Make the visitor curious to sign-up for an exclusive offer.

Overnight, Cosmetic Capital saw a 300% increase in leads daily. In total, they’ve captured more than 18,000 leads. That’s 600 new leads each week!

They also use a Lightbox popup to show a 5% discount offer. This brings an additional 170 leads per week.

Cosmetic Capital controls the customer journey from start to finish. On average the leads they gain using OptinMonster perform better than leads captured through other mediums.

Results

Cosmetic Capital used OptinMonster to capture leads and drive sales.

  • Cosmetic Capital gains 770 new leads each week using OptinMonster.

Summary

There are three primary tactics you can use to boost conversions from abandoning visitors:

  1. Scarcity: Let your visitors know that your offer is limited, typically by quantity.
  2. Urgency: Encourage your visitor to act quickly before the offer expires.
  3. Curiosity: Peak the visitor’s interest by hinting at a revelation or transformation.

Cosmetic Capital used urgency and curiosity by showing a limited-time offer to their website visitors alongside a surprise offer in their Floating Bar campaign. Both urgency and curiosity tactics are highly effective in eCommerce lead generation.

OptinMonster is a simple to use – yet powerfully effective – tool that will change your eCommerce store overnight. The range of options allows you to find the perfect popup for your site, whether you want to increase your list size, reduce abandonment or trial new features. We can’t recommend it highly enough.

I hate popups, so I was hesitant to try one on my site. But the results from OptinMonster exit-intent popup speak for themselves. I doubled my subscription rate immediately without annoying my users. I haven’t had a single complaint. My only regret is that I didn’t start using OptinMonster sooner. I can only imagine how many subscribers I could have added to my email list! If you have a blog, then I highly recommend you start using OptinMonster. I’ve researched them all, and it’s the best in market.
