In the online advertising many companies together with banners, newsletters and other advertising tools use pop-ups. For some companies it works, for the others it does not. Many online consumers became tired and annoyed by the constant appearance of these pop-ups messages on their desk tops, while they are surfing the Web. Moreover, pop-ups are considered by many consumers as only another form of spamming. Therefore, using such ads in some cases may resolve in creating a negative image and name for online companies. Nevertheless, there is a great number of companies with an excellent reputation and a financial success, which still resort to using pop-ups as an essential part of their advertising campaigns. Let us take a look at how pop-ups can benefit your company and what forms of them are applicable in the online advertising.
First of all, pop-ups are still very capable of increasing the consumers' awareness about your company, brands or products. Otherwise, they would not have been used by such a great number of advertisers. Furthermore, pop-ups can boost the number of your subscribers or page viewers, as they can still grab the people's attention and reach them with your advertising information. Thus, you can find a proper place for pop-ups in your advertising campaign without causing any damage to your companies' name and reputation.
Consider some hints on how you can use pop-ups on your own web site for promoting your own products or services and getting more subscribers into your mailing lists. First of all, you may use informational pop-ups. These pop-ups can contain valid and relevant information your target consumers may be looking for, since a lot of people complain that the pop-ups' contents have nothing to do with the sites they visit or with the products or services they look for. It means that if you can make your pop-ups useful and interesting for your site visitors, you can make them work and advertise for you. In addition, such pop-ups can be used for placing some specific information, which concerns only some segments of your target customers. In this way, you will avoid crowding your web pages with this sort of content.
Pop-ups can also contain calls to action and subscription options. You may use them to approach your site visitors with appealing offers of a free membership, a free article or an access to your archives. In this case, they will only need to subscribe and leave you their contact information, such as their name and email address, in exchange to the information or some other benefits you offer. Another kind of pop-ups you may use on your web site is survey pop-up ads. The main idea that stands behind using such pop-ups is to gain the feedback of those people, who did not purchase anything from your site. Hence, you will be able to obtain their opinions, which may help you improve and enhance your site contents and architecture.
Those were some clues on how an online entrepreneur may use pop-ups in a user friendly way and without damaging his or her business reputation.
