Most people don’t really like the idea of a pop-up box on a website, but they do actually work! So yes, do use them!

Pop-up boxes have come a long way. There are tools out there now that offer a much better user experience. I personally find it a hassle when a box pops up when you’re in the middle of reading something.
So instead of interrupting the website user experience, you can get a box to pop up right at the start when people open a page, or upon exit, or after say 20 seconds.
