Old Popups Are History! How I Tripled My Signups!

by Neil Shearing

You know, I'm a lazy guy!

I just slapped popups on my pages around about 1999 and just left them. Yesterday I decided to find out if all the popup blockers had decreased my signups, or if that was a load of hooey. The results may surprise you. :-)

Here's the problem from a web marketer's point of view...

More and more people are using popup blockers whether they know it or not. Internet Explorer already has a built-in popup blocker. A lot of antivirus, anti-spyware and firewall software comes bundled with popup blockers...

"McAfee Internet Security helps safeguard personal data, prevent viruses, stop unauthorized computer access, filter spam from your Inbox and block popup ads—all in one powerful, fully integrated package."

"Norton AntiSpam 2005 helps users speed up Internet connections and reduce Web distractions by blocking annoying popup, popunder and banner ads."

On top of that, most free toolbars such as...

* Google—"Eliminate annoying pop-up ads"

* Yahoo—"Enjoy hassle-free surfing with Pop-up Blocker and Anti-Spy"

* Alexa—"Stop Pop-ups, Surf Related Links, and More!"

...all come with popup blockers. There are hundreds of other toolbars that also come with popup blockers. So, what can you do? Well, here's what I did. I replaced my old popup...

...with an unblockable drop-in box.

You can't really tell the difference between the two popups as they have the same content, but the old one generates a new web page (which the popup blockers can block) whereas the new one doesn't...It creates a new layer to the page, and the layer can't be blocked!

You can create a free drop-in box here: Creative Connectivity.

You may also want to check out this latest technology in popups...I haven't tested it, but they do look incredible: Instant Popover.

The results I got from my new drop-in boxes were incredible. Signups tripled from the day before the change to the day after!

And more signups means more chances to turn a list member into a customer!
