Hello Bar - WM Site of the Day
How do you get a notification bar on your website? Look no further than Website Magazine's Site of the Day - Hello Bar.
Hello Bar is a notification toolbar for websites that can be used to drive engagement with users by customizing it to deliver relevant messaging. FOr example, promote blog posts, display tweets, product specials, job posting or anything you want to call users attention to. For example, DIY Themes uses Hello Bar to offer a free ebook with an email sign up, and Tim Ferris (of 4-Hour Workweek fame) uses the notification bar to direct users to his book on Amazon.
The Pro version of Hello Bar is where real marketers will find value. A/B testing is possible, advanced stats are included and there is no branding or links to Hello Bar whatsover. Overall, a very well devised, elegantly designed toolbar that we here at WM can even see ourselves using. And we just may do that in the next few days.
