I absolutely HATE it when you go to a web page and suddenly there’s music blaring from your speakers for some advert.
I hate anything that moves or makes noise when I land on a web page, including those creepy “how can I help you” chat popups on some sites.
Oh, yes, I hate animated email messages, too.
If I control my user experience, I am much more likely to read your email or stay on your web page. I’ll even click on a few advert links if they’re something I’m interested in. I might even click on a “click to chat” link if I do have a question.
But if you get pushy with me, I’m gone.
