Have you seen the notification bar at the top of the website? Why bloggers put this notification bar? This is the fastest way to drive more traffic to a particular link, to sell affiliate products or increase our email list, etc.
This eye-catching notification is visible when sites completely loaded. Every reader will catch this notification because it comes after the site’s loading. There are some WordPress notification plugins available for doing the same, but hellobar WordPress plugin is a most popular plugin that every professional blogger use. Hellobar WordPress plugin adds notification bar wherever you want on your site.
Below I have created the Bluehost Affiliate link to get more referral or sale. In this way, you can add any types of links as discussed above. When the people visit your blog, they will immediately see the notification which you have embedded on your blog, and they will click the link.

The hellobar pro version is not affordable for small business as its price is $12/month and for the enterprise version it $83/month. This is the reason why people are leaving hellobar and finding an another option for it. I have tried hellobar free version it was a great experience, but because of the high price, I have not upgraded it to pro Otherwise the overall experience was excellent. When I installed this plugin within ten days, I have collected 50 email address.
Hellobar Pro pricing
- The free version allows us maximum 25 clicks with any premium functions.
- For 100 clicks need to pay $4.95/month which is expensive.
- For 7500 clicks you have to count $49.95.
If you look at above stats, you will realize that why I said this plugin is not affordable for small scale business. You can have multiple options for hellobar WordPress plugin like firebar, WordPress notification bar, etc. If you are using Pro version of Hellobar, then share your experience with our team.
