Very curious if anyone's run an a/b test with this vs. a traditional email capture form.
@rrhoover will let you once I have a real figure out :). Thanks a lot :)
This is awesome! I typically hate pop-ups & close them due to the static nature of them. However, this certainly grab my attention & increase the likeliness of converting into a lead.
@sergio_villasenor Hey Sergio! Thanks a lot. Let me know if you have any feedbacks :)
@sergio_villasenor Haha, trending on PH. Good job Sergio
@meetchopra Thank you! We should talk though. I can see your solution embed in our sellers stores. It would be awesome for a "sales associate" like experience.
@sergio_villasenor Would love to collaborate. We can talk over email :). Let me know your email address or you can message me at meet@tryprosper.com
Hey Hunter πŸ‘‹! It's been a wild journey this year. I'm excited to launch Prosper ⚑️ We all know when popups get annoying, but as a business owner, maker, writer these popups are important towards building the audience and a way to reach out to them. That's the moment I decided to try changing how the popups are. And, if we can make them a little personal and more friendly to visitors. I'm sure, showing your face behind your startup or your website will help in gaining the trust of your visitor without being annoying at the same time! Introducing Prosper, where you can quickly record your message, add popup to your website and grow your email list in a more respectable way. I am currently on 9-5 so I'll try my best to reply all possible questions! If you liked it, hated it or have any ideas on how this can be made better, make sure to let me know in comments. I will make sure to analyse and improve on it :) - Peace!
@meetchopra congratulations on the launch Meet!!!! πŸ₯°πŸ˜πŸ˜‡ this is game changer! I love video stuffs like this. Much love from Singapore πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬
@fajarsiddiq Thanks a lot fajar! Happy to have your support!
@meetchopra Where's the video hosted? When I tried to watch the video on your site, it was all choppy and buffery.
@rossdcurrie thanks for letting me know the issue. I will make sure to inspect it. Answering your question, it's hosted on S3 and cached by cloudflare
@meetchopra Massive congrats on the launch, what an interesting product!
super impressed by the widget πŸ‘Œ
@jijosunny Glad you liked it. Made my day πŸ™‚.
For me, pop ups and auto-play videos are lumped into the same category, so having an auto-play video pop-up wouldn't make me more likely to give over an email, personalized or not.
@grahampark Absolutely agree with this. As much as I want indie products to succeed, this is a product that will make the web a worse place.
@grahampark I feel that most people just want auto-play videos to be over and generally spend that time paying attention to anything else so there would be even less of a chance this would capture my attention than a popup.
@grahampark I agree. Toasts and popups should be used once on an initial visit to a site and never again, auto-play videos with possible audio are an egregious design, especially for sites trying to minimize network usage.
