Pop-Ups still work. At least for the time being.
by Jason Blackston
Do you remember playing with the jack-in-the-box toy as a
child? You knew that if you kept winding it up,
eventually jack was going to burst out of the top and
Many of you found old jack-in-the-box an annoying
toy and confined it to the toy box.....
Well, it reminds me of pop-ups on the internet. Eventhough
you know that when you get on the internet there is a good
chance a pop-up will present itself, you always act
surprised and somewhat violated.
But as irritating as they are, pop-ups work. Most
businesses are able to utilize pop ups for growing their
list. This way they can market to you for years to come.
Others actually make sales off of pop up offers.
Now, these days if you don't want to deal with pop ups, you
have the pop up blockers and stoppers. This pretty much
remedies the situation if you don't like multiple offers
However, many people still don't have any type of pop up
blockers because they haven't gotten around to purchasing it
or because they actually want to view the pop up offers.
*Aggravating Pop Ups Mop Up!

you can have multiple offers. Depending on the pop up

page. And even position them to the exact spot on the page
where you desire.
**Remember when I said that pop up blockers and stoppers can
pretty much be stopped these days?
Not so fast!!

After you get there you'll notice a pop up that flies
onto the page.
Even if you have a pop up blocker set up on your computer,
it shoudn't stop it. You see, this pop up is built into the
html page. This way when it loads, it does not open in a
separate window. It is a part of the page and can not be
Maybe it's sneaky, but it works....
The word on the street is that Pop Ups will soon be done
away with. Believe me, this will not hurt my feelings in
the least! They tend to annoy me also. However, until
then, you can continue to reap the benefits
of utilizing pop ups for your business!
