Top Info Bars are an easy and effective way to close more leads. Statistically speaking, info bars convert on average 1.5% of visitors. Info Bars with truly exciting offers tend to cover at a much higher rate, roughly 6-8%. While these numbers alone may not seem like a ton, combining all of our lead conversion steps together leads to much more effective conversion funnels.
With WordPress its extremely easy to start converting more leads with your top bars. We’ll walk you through adding your own top bar, using QuickieBar, a free alternative to the industry leading paid conversion plugin OptinMonster, and then provide suggestions for more optimal conversion solutions.
Think of something you’ve been trying to promote lately: a new product or sale, your latest page or post, an upcoming event or trending piece of content. Alternatively, the bar can act as an announcement such as, “Free Shipping on Orders over $20,” or, “Closed for Labor Day.”
Take a moment to sum up your offer in a short headline or call for the user to take action.
Voila! You implemented a simple, site-wide conversion driver that can help you direct your traffic quickly.
There are many use cases this simple solution may not work for your site. If any of these use cases sound like your situation – it’s probably time to upgrade to one of the industry leading solutions like OptinMonster.
