Most people reading this post will be somewhat familiar with Neil Patel. The guy is all over the place…
Neil Patel is a New York Times best selling author. He is the co-founder of Crazy Egg and Hello Bar and he helps companies like Amazon, NBC, GM, HP and Viacom grow their revenue. The Wall Street Journal calls him a top influencer on the web.
On his Quick Sprout blog he does something interesting with a banner that he displays in the sidebar area on his site.
The banner he displays is “sticky” meaning it will follow people down the page as they’re reading a post or scrolling down the homepage.
This is an easy way to get a ton of clicks and draw attention to one of your primary offers.
In the video below I show you an example from Neil’s site and also show you how to set up something similar on your WordPress powered site (using a free plugin):
- Click Here To Download The Free Q2W3 Fixed Widget WordPress plugin from the repository.
- Upload and activate it on your site.
- Click on “Widgets” within your WordPress dashboard.
- Select the widget you would like to make “sticky”.
- Click on the “Fixed Widget” checkbox and click save.
I made mention of this in the video, but if you’re having trouble with your banner or optin box disappearing into the bottom area of your site you need to adjust the bottom margin area by adjusting the number in the “Margin Bottom:” box in the settings.
We are currently using this plugin on our site to push more traffic to our offers.
It’s all about getting people to click or take some sort of action when visiting.
That’s how you make money.
