The Story
Hello Bar was founded in 2010! In 2011, our owner Neil Patel was looking for a way to collect more leads on his site. He was hiring developers and designers to create pop-ups on his site and it was costing him a ton. When he found Hello Bar, he found out how simple it was, he didn't need a developer or designer and it was a much cheaper price tag! He ended up using it, it worked really well and he ended up acquiring it.
Best advice given
If anyone tells you that you "have" to use their marketing tactic, run! It is all about soaking up all of the advice and figuring out what is best for you.
Business day
I start with an awesome podcast, usually the quote of the day show and walk to work!
Mind yourself...
Stay in my own lane! It is hard, but I really try to do that, otherwise I get distracted.
You can't give yourself your own haircut even if you are the best hair stylist in the world.

Proudest moment
12 years ago, as the Marketing Director for a restaurant chain. I created a promotion that increased revenue by 50% in one evening. It inspires me to this day!
Funniest moment
So many! A few years back we had a law client who practiced divorce law and business law. On their website on the business law page, I displayed a Hello Bar pop up about divorce! Definitely the wrong message at the wrong time.
Stay in your lane, only own a business where you feel you can be 100% real and your true self.
