Get More Email Subscribers With These 5 WordPress Plugins
Are you looking for ways to quickly grow your email list and generate more leads? In this post, we’ll show you some of the best WordPress plugins you can use to skyrocket lead generation and get more subscribers in your email list.
59% of B2B marketers believe that email is the most effective channel for generating revenue. Needless to say, building an email list is probably the wisest investment you can make to boost your marketing efforts and sustain your business growth.
Get started on supercharging your lead generation process by installing these WordPress plugins.
Setting up popup messages, embedding opt-in forms in blog posts, and creating welcome mats are some of the first steps you take to get more people to subscribe to your email list. Usually, you have to install several plugins to enable all these features for your blog, which results in increased page loading times and higher server resource consumption.
OptinMonster is a popular lead generation plugin you can use to avoid running into that problem. It lets you install all those features and more on your blog using a single WordPress plugin.
How To Use It
With OptinMonster, you can install popup messages, floating bars, slide-in forms, two-step opt-in forms, welcome mats, and much more. One of the most useful features of OptinMonster is its A/B testing tool, which allows you to test different versions of your opt-in forms to boost conversion rates and attract more leads.
OptinMonster also supports exit-intent technology. Using this technology, you can create popups that appear just before a visitor is about to leave your website to grab their attention to convert them into a lead.
OptinMonster pricing plans start at just $9 per month.
One of the biggest problems with blog comments is that the default comments system of your blog doesn’t support email notifications. Which means that there’s no way for your visitors to know when someone has replied to one of their comments on a blog post.
Subscribe to Comments Reloaded is a plugin that solves this problem.
How To Use It
Once installed, this plugin will show a small checkbox in your comments section, allowing your visitors to choose to receive email notifications when leaving a comment. That way, they’ll receive an email notification when someone replies to their comments.
The plugin also collects all the emails of the people who subscribe to comments and gives you full control over those emails – meaning that you can easily copy the emails over to your own email list as well.
You can install and use Subscribe to Comments Reloaded for free.
You can use many different types of forms on your blog to collect emails as well. For example, if you have a contact form, a file upload form, or even a job application submission form on your blog, you can collect the emails from those forms and add them to your email list.
WPForms is a powerful form builder that can be used to create many types of forms to collect emails.
How To Use It
One of the best uses of WPForms is the ability to connect your email marketing service (Constant Contact, MailChimp, AWeber, etc) with forms such as contact forms to export submission emails to your email list.
You can also use WPForms to create popup surveys and polls as well. With the OptinMonster integration, you can easily collect emails via surveys while better segmenting the email list based on the data you collect from the survey.
That’s not all. WPForms supports integration with Zapier, which allows you to connect it with dozens of different third-party apps for adding more functions to your forms as well.
WPForm costs a one-time fee of $39 for the basic plan. You can renew it each year for customer support and updates.
Entertaining your blog visitors is an important part of creating a loyal following for your blog and encouraging them to stay on your website. Quizzes are a great way to achieve this goal and grow your email list at the same time.
