NEW FEATURE ALERT!! That’s right ladies and gentlemen, we’re excited to announce the launch our newest feature, the Hello Bar Demo Editor. A preview mode for anyone interested or a current user to see what a Hello Bar looks like on their website.
There has been some changes to our homepage lately and the most recent was the adding of our, “Try The Demo” button. We wanted to open the opportunity for anyone to test a Hello Bar on their site, not just registered users. The new Demo Editor is a fully customizable editor that you can launch from our homepage allowing you to create a Hello Bar on any website. Pretty slick huh?
It works like this. Click the “Try The Demo” button on the homepage. Enter any URL of your choosing could your website, a friends, or even your Facebook application. If you’re unsure of which URL to choose, we’ve provided a few examples of popular websites around the web. Once you’ve entered a URL, you will be shown a notification bar at the top of the website. Now it’s time to have some fun.
With the demo feature, you now have a full editor at your finger tips before logging in. You can test any message and link to find the perfect fit for visitors on your website. Make sure to keep the message under 85 characters. Aside from the perfect message, you want to make the web toolbar noticeable and look good on your website. Here you have a variety of fonts (even Times New Roman!) along with a loaded color palette to tweak every option until you have the perfect fit.
So you’ve created that perfect Hello Bar, now what?
We went the extra mile to make sure you wouldn’t have to ask yourself that questions. The demo includes two features for allowing faster integration of a Hello Bar. We brought the “send to a friend” feature out from within the create a Hello Bar section to give you the option to send a direct link of your perfect Hello Bar to anyone.
Say you’re a web developer and know the benefits of having a notification bar on your website. Instead of having meetings pitching the idea, sending around documentation, use the demo to create the desired look and feel of the Hello Bar and send it to the parties involved.
Now that you’ve seen what the Hello Bar looks like on your site, created the perfect look, sent it to everyone, go ahead and click “Add This To Your Site” and it’ll be saved to your account or you’ll just need 60 seconds to sign up for account.
More new features and improvements coming. Let us know what you think of the demo and how it has worked for you.
