Our 2022 Stats: What They Tell Us

What a journey we had this year!

We welcomed a whopping 21,365 sign-ups so far to our platform.

Of these sign-ups, 20,240 came through our trusty version 1 popup builder, while 1,125 signed up through our shiny new version 2.

We can't wait for all of our users to try out the cool new features we've added in version 2! (We'll keep you posted)

There are currently, 16,682 active websites using Popupsmart.

We are constantly amazed by the support and engagement of our community and are truly grateful for the opportunity to help businesses grow and succeed. 🚀

The real cherry on top is our impressive average popup conversion rate of 3.22%.

That's a major win for brands using Popupsmart. 😎

We've also served up a total of 76,508,924 popup displays to users.

That’s something worth celebrating! 🥳

The Most Popular Triggers Were…

Exit Intent trigger killed it again in 2022!

Just like last year, the exit intent trigger took home the trophy.

This feature detects when a user is about to leave a website and displays a popup as a last-ditch effort to keep them on the site.

It's like the website giving visitors a virtual hug and saying "Don't go! We have so much more to offer!"

It's a useful tool for capturing the attention of potentially lost visitors, which appears to be well-understood by many of you.

Geo Location technology got your attention.

With the Geo Location feature, you can display targeted popups to users based on their physical location.

So if you have a business in a specific city, you can use the geo location trigger to show a special offer or promotion to users visiting your website.

New or Returning Visitor feature found its way to your heart.

This feature saves you from being intrusive.

Showing the same campaign to visitors who have already signed up or engaged with it ruins your user experience.

Popupsmart’s “New or Returning Visitors” targeting helps you better segment your audience and maximize conversions.

The most favorite template award goes to:

Social Media Growth 2022: A Year in Review

As we delved deeper into social media marketing in 2022, we experienced incredible engagement and growth!

Now let's look back at what we accomplished with your help on each platform this year.

You Watched Us 105.317 Times on YouTube

YesSsss, we made it to 105.317 viewers! 🥳

With 105,317 views, 92,046 watch time minutes, and 338 new subscribers, we were over the moon to capture your precious time & attention.

And let's not forget the 2300 likes - as they say, the cream always rises to the top.

Speaking of great content, it's no surprise that our top three most-watched videos were:

These tutorials were clearly a hit, and we're glad they were helpful to so many of you. 🥰

But our YouTube success went beyond those three videos. 👀

This year, we also created 13 Shorts videos and 67 long-form videos, all thanks to our great video marketing team's hard work & dedication and, of course, our top YouTube star Nazli.

We couldn't have done it without her!

And last but not least, we want to give a special shoutout to the United States for being our top viewing country.

Thank you for your support & interest, which makes our YouTube channel a success! 💙

The Twitter Bird Got Supprised by All the Mentions

This year, we published 4 informative threads every week, covering everything from how to build a high-quality email list to a list of the best Shopify cookie tools.

We were thrilled to gain 217 new followers this year, and we appreciate each and every one of them.

But the love didn't stop there - we were also mentioned in a ton of tweets from users & experts, who were kind enough to recommend us as a great tool for boosting brand conversion.

We couldn't be more grateful for the support and are thrilled to see our hard work paying off.

We Could Not Resist TikTok

We couldn't fight the temptation of joining the TikTok marketing craze!

So we created our account and shared our first post on October 26th. 🎊

Since then, we've shared 28 videos and gained 288 likes.

While it's not much compared to some of the Gen Z TikTok stars out there, we're proud of our humble beginnings, and we know that good content will eventually find its way into TikTokers’ hearts.

So if you want to see more of our (hopefully fun & informative) content, give us a follow on TikTok!

We Were Impressed on Pinterest

We were overjoyed by our 59.6K monthly views and 11.18K engagement on Pinterest!

So grateful for all of the interest, and the best part is that we've got even cooler content on the way.

Get ready for some more fun, creative, and engaging Pinterest boards from us!

You Could Not Take Your Eyes Off These 3 Blogs

With the huge number of visitors coming to check out our content, it's clear that our focus on organic traffic paid off, and we're glad to see such engagement from our readers.

One of the highlights of the year was the success of our blog, which featured a number of popular articles, including:

These articles struck a chord with our audience, and we're glad they were able to provide valuable information and insights.

We can't wait to see what the future holds and to continue providing top-quality content for our readers.

The Most Used Popupsmart Micro Tool Award Goes to…

One of the standout successes of the past year has been our micro tool, the Freechat solution.

This handy and FREE tool lets users instantly add a chat feature to their website, helping them connect with their visitors in real-time.

It's no surprise that it was so popular - users loved it so much that we created an imaginary award for it, the "Most Used Micro Tool" award. (Okay, so it's not an actual award, but we like to think it should be!)

In all seriousness, we're thrilled to see such enthusiasm for the FreeChat Popup tool, and we're grateful to our users for their support.

The Fun Never Stopped, and It Won't Any Time Soon

At Popupsmart, the fun never stops, and we don't plan on slowing down anytime soon.

From quarterly meetings to exciting events, we've kept the good times rolling all year long.

We Gathered All for Our Quarterly Meetings

Even if we work mostly remotely, we know how important it is for the whole team to connect and come together.

That's why we made sure to gather everyone for these special gatherings throughout the year.

We Celebrated the Version 2.0 Beta Launch Together

We also celebrated a major milestone this year - the launch of Version 2.0 Beta.

It was a challenging but thrilling process; as they say, the hardships make the rewards sweeter.

Plus, it was a ton of fun to work on this project together.

In addition to these internal events, we also sponsored a number of networking JavaScript Sessions, bringing together experts from around the industry to share their knowledge and insights.

We Were Pretty Happy on Fridays

And, of course, we made sure to inject some fun into every work week by celebrating happy hours on Fridays (and sometimes Mondays, Tuesdays, or Wednesdays 😉).

It's all about finding the right balance between work and play!

Popupsmart's 2023 Goals: Let's Make Them Come True

We've got some big plans for Popupsmart in 2023, and we can't wait to share them with you!

First up, we're excited to announce that we're working on an enhanced Popupsmart Shopify integration to help users boost their conversion, get more subscribers, and showcase their best product/service deals in the most effective way.

We're putting all our efforts into making this integration as seamless and powerful as possible, and we're looking forward to launching it in 2023.

But that's not all - we're also working on a recipe engine that will suggest the best solutions to popup builder users looking to achieve their goals.

Whether you're looking to increase conversions or boost your email list, this tool will have you covered.

And last but not least, we've got some super cool new elements and features in the works for our V2 Beta release.

You won't want to miss what we've been cooking up, and we promise it will be worth the wait.

Finally, Thanks for sticking with us in 2022!

There's no doubt that even greater things are on the horizon, and we're grateful to have you by our side as we continue to grow and evolve.
