List building can be super easy and it can be very hard. I have tried so many list building techniques, but today I’m only using one wordpress plugin, and that’s what I’m going to present to you today. This plugin alone is what makes list building super easy for me.
I’m going to show you exactly why I highly recommend this plugin. I believe that it’s the best list building plugin for WordPress.
To me, list building is very important, and it’s a way to create and maintain a strong relationship.
I have been using various plugins and I’ve even tried to add some codes to manage list building on my blog (I got good results by using PopUp Domination, but I really don’t like pop-ups, they’re just too annoying, even though it provided me with the best results. I stopped using it).
Now, the only plugin I’m using is WPSubscribers. This is an all-in one list building plugin. And the features are just amazing.
At the moment, I’m only using four features, but I’m always testing (and there are so many of the other features that I’ll be testing soon).
The four features I’m currently using are:
List building using the sidebar
I have added a widget to the sidebar, where you can subscribe to my weekly newsletter. This is fairly visible to most visitors. And I keep adjusting the message (and the design) to see what works.
List building using the Comments
Every person who are commenting on my blog will see an option where they can check a small box to subscribe to my newsletter. A lot of people do this. I have 100% control of the text, and it’s very easy to add and edit. I keep adjusting this text as well in order to see what works.
List building below every single post
I have added a fairly large box below every single post on my blog. If you read the whole post, this box will grab your attention.
List building using a box inside the blog posts
This is probably the easiest way to grab someones attention, without using pop-ups. The box will show by adding a piece of code (you’ll get the code as soon as you create the custom optin-form) anywhere inside your post. The reason it’s so effective is that it becomes part of your content.
Just take a look at the box to the right. It took me about 10 seconds to create it and add it to this post. I could have added some fancy design, but I didn’t. This is just to show you how easy it is.
The other features of WPSubscribers
What I like the most about list building with WPSubscribers is how easy it is. This can be done by anyone, you don’t have to know hardly anything about wordpress or coding. And all the features are just amazing.
Let me just list some of them for you:
- Create beautiful Lightbox Subscription forms
- Create a footer bar with a subscription form
- Create a header bar with a subscription form
- Add subscription forms inside your blog posts
- Create exit popups
- 100% control on where to display your subscription forms
- Subscribe on user commenting
- Subscription referral system
- Integrates with Facebook
Testing is important to me, and I am testing various features of WPSubscribers. I have both tested a footer bar, and a header bar, but I didn’t find the right “design”. I don’t want to be annoying to my visitors, but at the same time, I want as many as possible to subscribe in order to create a strong relationship with them.
