Pop-ups, just hearing those two words together makes most of us cringe, those annoying little pop-up ads that… unfortunately, work.
A few days ago we started a poll on pop-ups. Actually, it was a pop-up on pop-ups… (even better).
Thank you to everyone who participated and here are the results!
Question #1) Pop-up opinion as a website visitor. The first question was asking how you felt about pop-up ads as a website visitor.
How do you react when you’re a visitor to a website with a pop-up?
Question #2) Pop-up opinion as a website owner. The second question we turned around a bit. This time we asked your opinion about pop-up ads as a website owner.
How do you view pop-ups as an owner of a website?
So, what do you think? Seems people’s opinion about pop-up ads is pretty consistent.. we hate them, but unfortunately they work, and because of that many website owners continue to use pop-ups on their websites.
Overall, 77% of people really don’t like pop-ups, but close to 40% of website owners would use a pop-up on their website.
What this should tell you is this: If you are going to use a pop-up, use a little pop-up etiquette and you may find that not as many people will be offended by it.
