Quick Announcement Bar is an app launched by Hextom, a SaaS company established in 2015. It’s just one of the 7 apps that the Dynamic Duo, Warner Liu and Aaron Lin, developed in under a year for eCommerce businesses. They made the app to help businesses build and manage customer relationships. Announcement bars are a convenient and effective way to inform customers about updates, promotions, and special events. As the name suggests, the Quick Announcement Bar makes the process quick and easy.
Hextom says that they build apps to help store owners solve problems. But if an app is too complicated, it solves one problem by creating another. That’s why the company makes sure that their apps don’t fall prey to that and Quick Announcement Bar is a great example. The app has pre-made and curated templates. Almost anyone can make a banner with them in about 30 seconds.
Besides, it also has an auto-scheduling feature that can display banners according to the time we decide. They can be scheduled even before months in advance. Not only this, it’s possible to group multiple banners together and display them in rotation. The banners can have a call-to-action button, which can take prospects directly to the desired page.
The app also tracks the engagement that the call to action receives. With this feature, it gets easy to understand the kind of banners that are most effective at conversion.
Quick announcement banners have advanced targeting features so that store owners can create banners that convert. With Geo-Targeting, the app only shows banners to the chosen countries. This prevents inconvenience both to the store owner and the visitors.
Use Display Page targeting feature to select the pages on which banners should be displayed. Other than this, the Source Targeting feature can create different banners for prospects that come to the website from different sources. These include Facebook ads, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.
The banners created through the app are also completely customizable to sync up with the Shopify store. Choose the banner’s position, style, colors, add emojis, etc. They are also optimized to look great on any device. As of now, Quick Announcement Bar consists of a free as well as a paid plan, which is at $9.99/mo.
