Why Hello Bar Rocks For Lead Generation

When you run a business website, it’s no secret that you must gather leads and emails to make money.

Since lead generation is vital for success, some people use aggressive tactics like pop-ups to capture emails.

However, if you’re like me, you may not want to go that route just yet, and that’s where Hello Bar comes in.

The Power of the Hello Bar

If you’re unfamiliar with the Hello Bar, check out my site, and look at the top. It’s a full width bar that spans your browser window with some text and a link promoting my free newsletter.

It doesn’t look like much, but I can tell you first hand, that using the Hello Bar can generate more than 1,000 leads in 30 days.

And that’s the point here… Hello Bar rocks for lead generation. I use it on the DIYthemes marketing blog, and I use it here on Social Triggers.

Exclusive Hello Bar Beta Keys

Currently, the Hello Bar is in private beta, but the wonderful people at Digital Telepathy, the founders of Hello Bar, provided Social Triggers with 100 exclusive beta key codes that grant you access to the Hello Bar instantly.

All you have to do is enter “socialtriggers” in the beta key section on the Hello Bar website and you’re set. Act fast because there’s only 100 invites, and once I run out, I don’t think I can get more.

Do you use the Hello Bar? Have you enjoyed using it so far? Did you get any results? Leave a comment.

Did the ‘socialtriggers’ key get burned out already? There were 100 available.

Took me forever to find the “beta key section”. Was this another deliberate cunning psychological technique? To save others from the hassle, it’s here: http://www.hellobar.com/activate-your-account

No… no deliberate psychological techniques here. Wouldn’t that be silly? Tell you about all this stuff, and then try to use it on you? :-D

Definitely going to check this out. I’ve actually been considering the annoying popup but this is way better

annoying pop up converts much better… However, I’m trying to avoid it. The answer is, just get more traffic :-D

Have you knocked off the Hellobar of your homepage? Can’t see it anymore…

No, it should still be there…

I’ve got a “pop-over” (def not a pop up right? :) ) running on one of my sites but I’ve been seeing a lot of people using the Hello Bar, looking forward to trying it out.

And the beta key is still good as of 17 seconds ago. Thanks man!

Any reason why you have removed the hello bar now? Looks like your split testing or trying out that different opt-in form. I definitely pay a bit more attention to that…

Anyway, glad I found your site! Thanks for the great stuff!

The Hello Bar was supposed to show on individual / single post pages only, since I’m using the big opt in form on my home page. However, my coding was a bit bugged. I have to get that updated.

I dissed Hello Bar at first because from a developer’s standpoint, it would be easy to create. But, for non-developers this is actually an indispensable tool.

Thanks for turning me on [to Hello Bar], Derek!

Hey Derek,

just installed it myself and I’m checking how well it converts. It’s a perfectly simple idea, but I wonder if people actually notice it !

Thanks! I just submitted my Beta key and my account was activated! I’m looking forward to installing it! :D

Hey Derek, I was looking at installing the Hello Bar on my site and just noticed that you are no longer using it. Is there a reason for that?

Thanks! Love your site. So simple!

I love the idea of the Hello Bar. I’t s so easy to install. It’s easy on the eyes, not annoying either. I noticed it right away when i went to another website. I never click on popups. But i do click on the bars like hello bar. Perhaps some combo of both would be a great to have.

I’ve tried “socialtriggers” but it doesn’ seem to be available anymore :-(

Derek,

Love the site! One question, is it possible to tell some of us technologically challenged folks how to implement some of these things?

Thanks!
