We are considering making our product's feature available as an add-on that websites can enable within themselves.
Any help with the following is appreciated:
- What are some effective ways of letting a user know they can perform a specific action anywhere on the website?
This is not meant as a feature in a usable platform (ex: "drag & drop files to upload in a file sharing site") but rather as a something to do on a content website (ex: "right click on any article to tweet").
- How to avoid the tip/notification/guide from being taken for an add popup (or a poll)?
- What are the pros and cons of a read-and-dismiss tutorial versus one that requires the action to be tried once?
