Powered By Links – The Dark Side of Branding
Today messages like Popups, sidebars, hello bars etc are very important for grabbing visitors attention and converting them to customers.
Sadly however, these messages are turning out to be the main source of losing visitors, thanks to the in-app branding like logo/ powered by links that third party plugins display.
This sort of subtle branding( what plugins like to call it) might not seem to be a major threat to your visitors but eliminating them has it's own set of ADVANTAGES..
The advantages of Removing In-app Branding:
1. No advertisements by external plugins
2. Readers pay full attention to your website only
3. More traffic and conversion
4. No extra money to spend
