6 Free Hello Bar Alternative WordPress Plugins

As you know, Hello Bar is one of the popular eye-catching notification toolbar used by many sites all over the web, but because of its high price many bloggers are not using it; their free package provides only 25 clicks/month that is not even enough for a low traffic site. And the pricing starts at 4.95 per month for 100 clicks, where the pro package is worth $49 .95 per/month for up to 7,500 clicks. Obviously Hello Bar is not affordable for small Business owners and new bloggers.

Moreover, the installation process of Hello Bar is little time-consuming because Hello Bar is not a plugin, it requires a couple of steps to set-up.

However, these types of notification toolbar can be very beneficial for your business. It can be used to capture high quality leads, to guide your visitors to a specific sales page, to an eBook download page, can use as a subscription form, can use as a call-to-action button, etc. As you can see it has so many advantages.

In This article, I’m going to share some of the free WordPress Plugins that can be used as Alternative for Hello Bar.

    cool alternatives,

    For me I like to keep it very, very simple.
    I don’t what any distraction on my blog, no pop ups, shiny banners, nothing none-static.
    I have one banner on a black and white site that pops.

    perhaps down the line I’d incorporate some add ons though.

    thnx for the share, Adithya

      Hi Akos,
      I don’t think these small static bars at the top will distract anyone! I agree pop-up and ads will be irritating. . .
      Thanks for reading! :)

    Thanks for the post.
    I must be confused. I see nothing on the Hello Bar site about payment plans.
    Does it just show up once you get 25 new subscribers in a month?
    And I do love that it integrates with MailChimp!!

    I have also purchased and used FooBar.

    I totally agree that “hellobar” plugin can not be afforded by small businesses and new bloggers.
    The list of alternatives which you have mentioned are really good. I too think that attention seeker plugin will be great among all others.

    Anyway thank you for the list and moreover thank you for sharing this post.
