When the customer will get a pop-up alert that the TV set he wishes to purchase is provided at the online store he/she saw earlier with a 15% price cut, one will surely use this possibility and buy it. Taking into consideration the extremely small cost for the popups and their targeting, such an advertising and marketing method is a favorite thing amidst the advertising teams of large internet stores.
