After working with numerous clients who experienced high rates of website abandonment, Crowdvert founders Jeremy Wallace and Yosem Sweet asked themselves an important question:
“If you had just 4 hours to improve the performance of a website, what would you do?”
With that simple question, Rooster was born.
Rooster is a user engagement tool that utilizes exit-intent technology to increase leads, sales & signups for site owners. When Rooster’s proprietary tracking algorithm detects an abandoning visitor, it activates targeted messaging that entices the user to remain on the site.
After 13 months of development and some impressive early results, Rooster was launched as a subscription service in the spring of 2014.
In June of 2015, Rooster was acquired by Unbounce, a landing page builder that empowers marketers to design, build and publish custom landing pages without I.T. support
