Hi guys. I'm planning to start my own blog (with the main focus on e-commerce and everything connected with that). Surely, I want to get more readers to subscribe to my posts. And seems like popups is the most effective way to do that. However, pop-ups is such a controversial topic. After browsing through various forums I came to the conclusion that they are damn irritating and readers hate them. But despite this fact, email popups helped a lot of bloggers to double the amount of the subscribers and collect decent email lists. While researching the topic I bumped into this post about different types of popups: http://webmeup.com/blog/do-your-pop-ups-annoy-customers.html Which one do you consider to be the most effective and the least annoying? Also, as this posts says: http://unbounce.com/email-marketing/get-subscribers-from-pop-ups/ , we should put too much info into popups. But how much is ok? Should I only ask for an email/name, or add some info/details? What can you advise?
