Making changes brings results

It's always a question on how to keep improving your website, create more content, but most important of all; to keep generating subscribers.

I added a subscribers popup on my website that pops up when the user leaves the website.

I noticed that one person subscribed today via that popup.

Current statistics since launch on October 4th:

  • Subscribers: 13
  • Visits: 209

    I've recently done some experimentation with a client that was using email popups.
    After watching a lot of Hotjar recordings, we decided to remove it (it clearly annoyed people).

    We did notice a drop in email signups, but we also noticed a conversion rate increase. While we can't attribute it directly to the popup, it seem that users now stay around longer without the popup.

      I agree. But depends on what your conversion is. Mine is just subscribing so it has a benefit. If your conversion is another action that popup might be distracting. Overal you just better test what works and what doesn't.

    I did that too for growthhacklist and added a pop up - not a big fan of it but 34% of the new sign ups in the last days for the newsletter came from the pop up

      Yes they do actually work pretty well. I guess the most 'hating' part is when and where will it popup.
