Hi, Just out of curiosity; there happen to be milions of websites last years with popups while you are reading the article, like ‘want to chat?’, ‘want the newsletter’. Some of them pretty brutal just covering the full page, or even multiple big popups at the same time even covering eachother.
If I’m at one of those websites and see them coming it doesn’t matter to me if I was interested in the first place, I leave immediately and never come back. I’m sure everybody find this things annoying. So I am really suprised even more websitebuilders are using this aggressive technique nowadays.
Even if I was interested for a product or whatever before, if a website uses this agressive technique disturbing me when just trying to read an article I instantly loose interest.
Do these popups ever work on people? Is there proof? Are there really people clicking on those Call to action popups? Is there any reason why more sites are using this technique to get subscribers and customers?
I really wonder.
