Popups are a fairly controversial topic among marketers, small business owners, and users of the Internet. Some argue that popups work; why else would they be so ubiquitous? Others argue that popups are as annoying as telemarketing, and that they are quite simply rude.

Popups Alternatives

Fortunately, there are a lot of fabulous marketing tools available to those who are reluctant to use intrusive techniques. Newsletters and opt in lists are great ways to drum up new clients, or to keep in touch with established clients. Autoresponders can also be very effective marketing tools when used properly. Affiliate programs can also be a wonderful part of your eCommerce system.

Unless you know a lot about both marketing and computer technology, the whole thing can make your head spin. You want your consulting business, fundraising efforts or small business to grow, but you don't want to have to get an MBA to do it! What are your options?

I strongly suggest working with a company that can do it all for you. Find one great company, with exceptional customer service and a knack for communicating clearly, and use them for all your marketing needs. If you try to set up your shopping cart software with one company, your autoresponders with a second company, and your opt in newsletter with a third, you're setting yourself up for a giant headache. Choose one company, and let them do it all for you.
