Pop-up marketing itself is a good, low-cost and very effective advertising tool1. It allows the seller to attach the customers’ interest to their site, and the customers to receive the dynamic updates on the goods they want to buy. When the consumer will receive a pop-up alert that the TV set he likes to purchase is offered at the online shop he/she saw earlier with a 15% price cut, one will definitely use this opportunity and get it.
