I built a new thing, it’s called Holler Box. It’s a WordPress plugin I built for myself, because I wanted a better way to communicate with my site visitors. For example, I did a webinar a couple weeks ago, and I was trying to figure out how to announce it to people on my website so they could register.
I’m a developer, and even adding a simple banner or popup to my site is not easy. I have to write the code, test locally, push to staging, test there, then push to production and do a final test. When I want to remove the message, I have to reverse the process. I’m busy, and that takes time.
I looked at other options, like complex popup plugins, but that was totally overkill for what I needed. I could add a banner or a blog post, but what I really wanted was to create a subtle notification quickly, and then move on to other tasks.
I didn’t know a good way to do it, so I created Holler Box.
What is Holler Box?
It’s a smart, non-intrusive notification box to help you convert more visitors into customers.
Announce a webinar, collect email optins, show sale notifications, (fake) live chat with email capture, forms, and lots more.
