🌎 Popup for Geolocation

Determining the location of shoppers is very essential as it directly affects product prices and courier costs.

This strategy can be regarded as a crucial marketing skill of J.CREW. We have reasons to believe that it dramatically increases sales.

Using popups to display content instead of opening a new tab increases the conversion rate greatly.

J.CREW also uses a popup to display details related to a product.

In addition, “Shop the look” has been added to the left which displays some recommended products.

Very smart indeed!

If you have an online store, you too can use popups to display product-related information and give suggestions to your shoppers.

If using these elaborate details seems to be difficult, you can place an action button or picture next to the product.

It has also added “recently viewed” to the details page.

J.CREW surely takes a lot of effort to promote its products and reduce cart abandonment.
