Say Hello to Hello Bar

This next five-minute growth hack will genuinely take you five minutes.

Whilst there are at least a dozen effective tools that can do the job which we’ll outline in this hack, the Hello Bar ( is effective because it does it well and it does it fast.

What is a Hello Bar?

It’s a prominent ribbon which sits on the top of your website with a strong and enticing Call To Action message.

Adding a hello bar to your website or blog is a simple but effective conversion trick for desktop and mobile. “Hello Bars” automatically scroll with a user in order to ensure you are constantly providing users with a CTA.

It’s free, but you’ll have to include their logo or if you’d rather not have their logo then you’ll need to pay for the premium version.

What’s good about the Hello Bar is that you can track your clicks and conversions from the color of the ribbon (or strip if you prefer to call it that) and your copywriting and adjust accordingly.

Simply applying this tool will almost certainly give a boost to your sign-ups and conversions.

Personally I use my own code to achieve this identical effect which can easily be coded by a developer. If you’re using the GeneratePress WordPress theme then you can activate an “element” to place as a ribbon.

Most themes within WordPress do allow you to insert a ribbon on the top too, I mentioned GeneratePress because it’s a favorite of mine and I know that it can add this feature out of the box.
