Update: I have removed several outdated plugins and added some new ones.
Email lists are one of the essential parts of a blog, and I have already talked about this in detail:
If you want to get more people subscribing to your blog, you first need to have a compelling offer.
After that, you need a good plugin.
WordPress Plugins To Grow Email Subscriber List:
Here are 7 awesome WordPress plugins to help grow your email list.
OptinMonster is one of the most popular email marketing WordPress plugins available.
OptinMonster can also be used by non-WordPress users, but for now, let’s focus on how you can use it for your WordPress blog.
OptinMonster offers various kinds of subscription boxes that can be used to capture the emails of your readers. In January 2016, I tried their full-page Welcome Gate & the results were astonishing.
The conversion rate was 4.09% (which is above average):
One thing which I really like about OptinMonster is its user-friendly interface & their ’round the clock support.
You don’t have to be technically savvy to create a subscription popup as you can use their ready-made subscription box & personalize it to your website.
I have been using them for the last 2 years & so far I’m very happy. They keep adding all of the latest techniques which help end users like you & me to sky-rocket our email capturing campaigns.
I highly recommend OptinMonster to all ShoutMeLoud readers.
If you are looking for a perfect solution to quickly grow your email list, look no further than Leadpages.
Leadpages lets you create stunning landing pages, email subscription pages, and Thank You pages within minutes.
They also have a WordPress plugin for easy integration with your WordPress blog.
Note: Leadpages can be used with WordPress & another platforms as well.
This is a complete value for the money, as for only $17/month (paid every two years), you get access to unlimited squeeze pages.
I’m using Leadpages on my blogs, and it has increased my email subscriptions by 34%.
