About Exit Bee and Smart Exit Ads
We’re a rapidly growing startup and we just raised a 2nd round of funding. We’re re-imagining what’s possible in display advertising using behavioral analysis and exit intent to deliver the right message to the right user at the right time.
Smart Exit Ads is a new, premium channel for advertisers to reach their audience on trusted publishers. Our campaigns have over 96% viewability, which is double the viewability of the average banner ad. It’s the perfect way to create awareness for a product or service because Smart Exit Ads get triggered on exit intent, at a time when the user is no longer focused on the content making it almost certain that they’ll at least see the campaign. On top of that Smart Exit Ads have up to 30 times higher click-through or conversion rate compared to traditional display ad formats.
