Checking in here on February 8th, short answer- Yes. The Hello bar works. The traffic and sign-ups that have resulted from displaying the Hello bar definitely say YES. We’ve seen an uptick in the amount of potential customers that complete both steps of the sign up process, not just the first one.
If you don’t have the Hello bar up yet or have a campaign launching soon to take advantage of it… get on it! Remember, you can use the Hello bar for a multitude of options:
Grow your MailChimp email list
Promote a discount code
Promote important news
Link to a new online article about your company
If nothing else, we recommended something simple like “Take 15% off your first box with the discount code: AWESOME No-risk, try it out today!” Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with what you want on your Hello Bar.
