Studies of how people react to online advertisements have identified several design techniques that impact the user experience very negatively. Opt-in pop-ups, Modals, and boxes that appear after someone has spent a few minutes on your website are all considered annoyances–and they’re bad news.
The Most Hated Advertising Technique
According to a study performed by Nielson Norman Group, pop-ups are the most hated advertising technique. Besides not working well on smaller devices (like our phones), they interfere with the customers goals. Because 76% of users say that finding what they want is the most important factor in a website design, you’re business will be better off giving the user the content they want on the page they are already on.
