Website Management: Pop-Ups
Take a moment to step back and reassess your site. Before you begin, keep in mind that your website is typically what customers, investors, and other businesses inspect before they decide to go forward giving you business. That’s right, your website is your “first impression”, so make sure you cross your proverbial T’s and dot those I’s.
Place yourself in someone else’s shoes for a second; even think about times that you’ve been on someone else’s sight. Did you really appreciate those pop-ups that flash across your screen? If you venture on your own site and you notice that the pop-ups are being obnoxious, chances are, other people feel the same way. Limit the pop-ups. If you do still want to keep one or two, then make sure they’re tasteful.
If you venture on your own site and you notice that the pop-ups are being repetitive and obnoxious, chances are, other people feel the same way. Limit the pop-ups.
If you do still want to keep one or two, then make sure they’re agreeable. For instance, if items are being placed in the online cart, create a pop-up with a code as a gratuity offer.
Stay away from complex semantics and create an easily detected method of exit. If visitors to your site are coming across pop-ups with hard to find exits, they will most likely become annoyed with the site.
Don’t let pop-ups stand in the way of having your successful online presence. If you know how to create the right content for your page, all should go well and positive feedback will come your way.
