Introducing the new Progress Bars

Before we explore the exciting opportunities made possible by the new Progress Bar element, let’s take a quick look at the two main flavors it comes in…

The Simple Progress Bar

Simple Progress Bars show the progression as a percentage.

You can choose whether to keep it super simple, or to include a secondary progress indicator, to show your visitors how far the next step will take them.

Both of these simple Progress Bars are great for illustrating page sequences that don’t have recognizable milestones along the way, such as surveys and membership onboarding.

But simple Progress Bars are also excellent for illustrating gradual data, like product stock availability and funding goals.

The Noded Progress Bar

Noded Progress Bars show step-by-step progress with defined milestones, called nodes.

These nodes help visitors to understand their actions as they progress through the bigger sequence. Noded Progress Bars are perfect for maximizing conversions across multi-stage funnels like sales enquiries, commissions, webinar registrations and more.

How Can You Use Progress Bars on Your Website?

The new Progress Bar has tons of potential applications, both as a purely aesthetic element, and as a conversion booster.

You can use them on a simple landing page to communicate an impressive statistic, or you can use them across a series of pages to encourage visitors to complete a conversion goal.

Of course, each niche is different, but I’m sure you can find a home for this customizable new Progress Bar element on your website!
