Pop-up windows are a pestilence on the web. Users are fed up with them. People visited your web site because they wanted to view information about some product. But as soon as they started scrolling down, an annoying pop-up window appeared in the middle of the screen, blocking what they were trying to read. Their response was simple - get rid of that ...

As other have said, most visitors have developed a banner blindness and will either ignore or close your pop-up without reading its content. Improving the content of the banner will have minimal effect on this behavior. A better alternative would be to advertise your feature inside the page content and not as a generic overlay. Depending on what value your ...

There are a few issues that spring to mind here. For example: The title of your Popup is 'New Feature!', but you don't explain clearly what that feature is OR why it's of value to the user. If the current 'deal' the user is viewing isn't interesting, why would they want updates of a similar type? The button text says 'Activate Now'. Again, the user may not ...

TL;DR You don't, and can't, get high response rates because nobody wants the notifications. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, actually wants to "opt in for web push notifications". That is the core problem. One of the absolute top things I do on a customer's computer the first time I work on it is to remove existing browser push notifications and turn off ...

I think the biggest issue here is that it's not clear what will happen once I click that CTA (as Scott mentioned). Where and how will I be notified? "Activate" sounds like I will be installing a new program or browser extension. The best thing to do is just make it more clear what you actually mean. Another issue could be, that it visually looks ...

Drop the popup, make it an option in the main page. And make it look better integrated with the rest of the page (e.g include it in a list of options with "buy now" and "add to wishlist") At the moment, that look like an advert, spam, or clickbait, trying to trick users into going to a different (potentially malicious) website. It hits ...

It's possible that 95% of your visitors don't want push notifications. My humble suggestion: Put two more buttons on the pop-up. One that says, "Close this popup" and a second that says, "Close this popup and never show me another pop-up on this site again." Tally your responses. That will point you in the right direction.

I believe I can answer this question. Couple of years back I faced similar issue of users not clicking the pop-up as I desired. So, as you have mentioned that users would mostly leave the page after they get the desired information. In order to increase the conversion rate what I did was, instead of using the pop-ups I used to place the same content of pop-...

With so many rules there can be a very high density of information with potentially a lot or very little change. However, since the focus is on the delta (i.e. difference rather than actual details) between the previous and current rule set, the visual design is on how to highlight the disabled/enabled permission differences. The easiest approach is to ...

At my workplace the UX team has early reviews of the developers' work (during the code reviews) so we can comment on things like this. We also include a link to the mockup in the work item, either in a comment or in the list of requirements. And we discuss what's needed during our planning meetings when the items are picked up. So there are plenty of ...
