You may have read how pop-ups can turn readers off. I’ve read figures as high as 95% of people hate pop-ups. Personally, I have have found some of the pop-ups to be quite intrusive especially on mobile.

But more and more people have been using these creative pop-ups on their blogs and websites.
Surely I was holding out back in early 2015.

But then I read Neil Patel’s post on Growing your traffic by 20,000 visitors a month and how the Hello Bar plays a crucial part of that. I had to check it out!

Neil also recommends the Hello Bar in his 12 tools to build high converting landing pages.

Martin, It does work there too. I just asked the folks over there to be sure :)

I will test it out for my relaunched newsletter, Lyceum Bulletin. How does the bar work on a mobile device?

Hi Martin, I hear you! I was the same way but you know, they work! I love the Hello Bar because you can easily how the X there for people to close it out and it only pop ups for a new user 3x. You can easily do A/B testing with it. I love that as technology can sometimes challenge me :) Have a great day Martin and hope you are feeling better!

Lisa: Thanks for your input! Do you know if it works to put a Hello bar on a Squarespace site?

I am feeling a bit better... Thanks for asking! :)

All the Best,

Martin

Lisa: I am not a fan of pop-ups. It could been seen as you are screaming at your visitors and readers. But I must say that the Hello bar doesn't look too intrusive. Maybe I will give it a try in the future.

Best Premises,

Martin
