Back in February (20110209) the folks at Digital Telepathy, the creators of the Hello Bar, reported that it had “served over 50,000,000 impressions and encouraged more than 500,000 new clicks.” That’s not surprising considering the Hello Bar is currently being used by some of the top marketers in the world, including Chris Brogan, Tim Ferriss, Seth Godin, Ramit Sethi and Gary Vaynerchuk.

I just started using Hello Bar at 1stWealth.com yesterday. I’ll let you know if it increases my sales.

If you’re using the Genesis Framework for WordPress here’s a tip, I chose to place the ‘Hello Bar,’ javascript snippet under Genesis – Theme Settings => Header/Footer Scripts in the footer script area. It’s working perfectly.

    hi frank,

    thanks for the post! I tried installing this on wordpress, I’m running the genesis framework, with agentpress as the child theme. for some reason I have some extra space at the top (my site is http://www.monmouthhomesdirect.com if you’d like to see what I mean). any ideas how to fix this? Thanks so much!

    I fixed it, by switching hello bar settings to cover page instead of push page down and it did the trick

  3. I’m glad you got it working. Jay, thanks for posting your solution, I’m sure others will find it helpful.
