We tried pop-ups.. not for ads but for an instant
messaging service - http://chatterpop.com. We found
they had to download fast or be perceived that way (as
the pop-up is the secondary download - therefore takes
longer). People have become used to clicking off
pop-ups in the usual place - we would generate 20,000
user sessions but around 100 or so registrations.
what we did was to make the pop-up appear in a spot on
the desktop that the user was not used to... in the
bottom right corner.. so by the time their eye tracked
to the pop-up the whole pop-up page had had time to
load.. this worked much better.
Plus I would suggest making your pop-up's
interactive... Actually I wonder if long copy would
have an effect on generating more hard responses?
