In my last post, The Latest Technique To Beat Ad Blindness, I introduced you guys to a brand new plugin, one that I believed would resolve the ad or banner blindness issue that we’re currently experiencing. In that post I used several examples to show people some of the many ways it uses to get your readers attention so that they will click on your links. Perhaps I used too many example because some of the commentators left comments that they found those types of ads annoying.
I’ve only personally come across one blog which used the plugin and rather than being annoyed I was intrigued. So much so that I bought the plugin. Now don’t get me wrong, I hate those popup ads, you know the type; you’re reading a post and then all of a sudden it pops out obscuring your view asking you to subscribe to their list or something. It stays there in your face until you find the ‘x’ so that you can close it.
Not so with the Sore Thumb plugin. (BTW, that was the Tada! effect. You can see some of the other effects in the post I linked to at the beginning) While in that post I had it set up so that it got activated every few seconds, but you can also set it to activate once it reached a trigger point, Like I’ve done for this one, the trigger point being when it comes up from the bottom of the page. It won’t activate again unless they scroll the page back down past the trigger point. Try it so you can see what I mean.
The question is how annoying do people find it? I reckon the only way to really find out is to run a poll. The poll requires you to vote twice, once to voice your opinion as to how annoying you find it and secondly to show whether or not you would click on the link if you found it interesting or relevant.
I believe because the plugin is relatively that if you’re not already a member now is the time to join JVZoo so you can promote it to your readers. Naturally the best way to do that is to have your own copy because they’re more likely to buy from you if they see you’re using it and are exited by it, just as I am.
Sorry, I couldn’t resist but to play with the plugin just one more time. Go on, click on it you know you want to. Besides, you’re always complaining that you don’t have anything to promote on your blog. This could be your first and you can use it to promote it to your readers.
Naturally I would love for you to leave a comment but lets not forget the poll. For as to get the best result we need to get as many people to take part in it as possible and the best way to do that is to share the post with your friends through the social media of your choice. Surely I don’t have to make that wobble as well
