When & where to use pop ups

Any advice on using pop ups? It seems a little annoying to have them open on every page of the website. Should they just be used on landing pages for PPC? Or should I try them out on every page.

Hi Kurt

Popup (or popovers - which arent blocked by popup blockers) can be annoying and overused, like a desperate salesman who wont take no for an answer, so once youve added a popover make sure you go through your site as a customer would and make sure it doesnt feel like its too much.

One of the premium tools on the Affilorama site is the popup generator which allows you to specify different settings for your popover. In my experience having a delay of 20 seconds before it appears works best as it gives the visitor time to know what your site is about before signing up to your newsletter etc. Also make sure it doesnt appear every time for repeat visitors, that can get annoying.

Just monitor it too, once youve added it to make sure its not causing a spike in your bounce rate, i.e. scaring off visitors.

Thanks Mark,
I am in week 9 in the affilo blueprint course, so I am using that tool. I just don't seem to recall websites using the pop over. I see them all the time on landing pages and sales pages. So I hope trying it out on my site will workout okay.
