Do pop ups still work interms of ctr and conversion rate.

Or are they old hat

Secondly does the size of a pop up make any difference to a ctr and conversion rate.

Please let me know if you are or have run any campaigns.

Although pop-ups are annoying to most, they give you a second chance to catch those visitors who are on the fence. My conversions on pop ups are quite high. Plus it's just exit traffic anyway, why waste it?

the way I see it, a popup on your site for exit traffic cant hurt. Now two, three, four..now we're talking annoying. Keep in mind both Mozilla firefox and the new SP2 have built in popup blockers. Im sure most people who have popups have seen a big loss in sales in that field because of the built in popup blockers. But no need to worry, I say go for it, it cant hurt!

Popups are going the way of the dinosaur soon.

Popup blockers are free these days and the latest IE even automatically blocks them. Very soon, no one can see your popups anymore ;)

I now use some sort of hover ad thing (draggable layer) but it can't "act" as an exit pop, only shows up on entry.

It is not blockable and is allowed on PPCs.

I use float-ins for some pages on my website and I've found them to be pretty effective in certain instances.

If you have a free newsletter or training course that you use to make follow-up sales, I would definitely suggest float-ins. I personally use this on different traffic-pulling pages on my site and I have consistently seen higher opt-in rates.

I'm not so sure about float-ins actually. Do they distract the visitor from what you are trying to sell?

I would have thought that an "unblockable exit popup" will be less annoying. It does not distract the visitor who is interested and at the same tries to catch the email of a visitor who is leaving :)

IBut is there such a thing as an unblockable exit popup?

Yeah, badly! It keeps blocking genuine windows that I click to open. Not everything that opens in a new window is a popup Microsoft - do you guys even surf the web anymore?

Internetheaven's comment prompted me to consider that since so many of my clickable links open in a _blank or _new window, perhaps these are being blocked. This is not a problem with Google popup blocking, but what about IE or others?

(please don't derail the discussion into the "good" and "evil" of opening links in a new window -- it's been done so many times here before)
