10 Awesome Hello Bar Users and Their Strategies

Blog / Tips and Tricks

What do Tim Ferriss, Tammy Camp, Chris Brogan and Andrew Warner all have in common? They have all joined the ranks of the thousands of Hello Bar users throughout the web.

The Hello Bar has served over 50,000,000 impressions and encouraged more than 500,000 new clicks. We’ve highlighted some of our favorite users and provided some insight into how they benefit from Hello Bar.

Tim Ferriss’ Blog:

Timothy Ferriss the author, entrepreneur, and public speaker uses Hello Bar on his blog to promote his new book, The 4-Hour Body. A very direct use of Hello Bar to promote his latest achievement. Congrats by the way Tim!

Tammy Camp

Aside from a great looking blog with a lot of conversation and comments, Tammy’s got a big idea. She wants to be the First Woman to Walk on the Moon. Read more about her big idea and weigh in. Tammy uses Hello Bar to link to a page with 10 reasons to subscribe to her site; simple and effective.

Chris Brogan

Chris is using Hello Bar as a promotional tool for Kitchen Table Companies. From his extremely successful self-titled domain, The Hello Bar serves as an excellent launching point to get users over to one of this other ventures.


Mixergy is using Hello Bar to get people on their list. Their Hello Bar asks the provocative question “How did Groupon grow so quickly?” Once clicked, it prompts users to subscribe for more. I see this as a great use of Hello Bar as email sign-up forms can otherwise be obtrusive and in-your-face.

Plastic Jungle

Plastic Jungle uses a nicely color coordinated Hello Bar to announce that you can get instant payment through PayPal and provides you with a nice brief path to getting started with the PayPal option.

Whoop This @whoopthis

Whoop This uses a nice subtle gray Hello Bar to call attention to their Facebook page. I think it’s a really great example of a Hello Bar and a simple, direct use.

Geoff’s Blog @geoffgirardin

Geoff is a specialist according to his Klout rating and he blogs about some pretty random and interesting stuff. It’s also refreshing to see a Hello Bar being used to promote the “Agents of Change” http://love146.org who help put an end to child sex slavery and exploitation.

Ready Fire Aim @michaeln

On “Ready Fire Aim Blog – Musings of the Serial Entrepreneur”, Michael Nelson blogs about travel, retiring from college, and is using the web toolbar to show the latest tweet from his Twitter feed. Nice trick ;-)

Karim Boubker @KarimBoubker

Karim’s site is really beautiful. Atop, there’s a subtle blue Hello Bar that encourages visitors to become a Facebook fan. His site is a Tumblr blog and it’s nice to see that he’s set the Tab display option to the left side-something that we added just for Tumblr users.

Katy Widrick @kwidrick

Katy’s blog is full of interesting content and very purple! She uses Hello bar to show off a link to her welcome page and encourage visitors to subscribe to her feed. Two calls to action in one! She’s also managed to match the purple used in her layout to make the Hello Bar appear to be an integrated part of her site.

These users are all benefiting from Hello Bar’s simplicity and easy to use statistics system. Hello Bar is currently in private beta, but we’re always approving new users and you can sign up at the Hello Bar homepage. If you’re looking for a Hello Bar invite, post a comment below. You can also search or ping Twitter as new users commonly share their extra invites.

If you’ve got a Hello Bar + web page combination you’d like us to see, then post it in the comments below along with a little blurb explaining your thought process behind the bar. Trust me, we’d love to hear it and we do enjoy feedback.
