Why I love it:
For a non-techy like me, Hello Bar is WordPress plug-in heaven!
(That’s WordPress.org by the way, not WordPress.com. Read about the difference here)
Picture the scene:
You’re visiting a site, and suddenly a wee little message pops down from the top of the website, encouraging you to sign up to the newsletter or visit a particular page. It doesn’t block what you’re reading – it’s not that in your face – but you don’t miss it either.
I had no idea how to install one of these prior to discovering Hello Bar. I thought I’d have to pay out for a WordPress developer to create and install this for me, or buy an expensive plug in. How wrong I was!
What you’ll get if you sign up:
Super simple step-by-step instructions for creating and installing your very own Hello Bar – for free!
Who’s it for:
Anyone with a WordPress.org site and a desire to engage visitors in a non-intrusive way.
What’s wrong with it:
I was a little frustrated at the number of options for customisation. I’ve yet to install it on this site so can’t give a full user experience or stats for measurement.
