The best way to gain email subscribers is todeliver great content via your blog.
Here are seven great WordPress plugins to grow your email subscribers and let you focuson delivering great content.
#1: Pippity Customized Popups
Popup boxes that appear when readers are browsing a website can get you more email subscriptions when they are used correctly.
But they can also annoy users, so they need to be handled with care and tweaked for your audience.
Pippity allows you to do this. Pippity provides you with the configuration options necessary to ensure that popups are delivered in the most unobtrusive and beneficial way to your users.
The key to using these popups is to make sure they’re relevant to the user. You also need to make sure they don’t appear every time someone goes to your website or before visitors get a chance to read your blog post.
Pippity gives you great control over how the popup looks, when it appears and what it displays. It can be very effective for growing email subscribers.
A good way to use Pippity is to display a popup that is particularly relevant to visitors from a specific site.
Let’s say you have a link from this post to your website. When someone follows the link, you could display a popup that is relevant to Social Media Examiner users.
You could also configure the popup only to appear once and only when the user has reached the end of the post.
This design is just one of Pippity’s standard popup boxes and it took me only a minute to set up. You can easily change every color and font to tweak the design to match your site.
These are just some of the ways in which you can configure your popup.
Pippity’s settings and power filters give you many ways to tailor when and how your popups appear; such as only displaying it for a specific post or any post in a particular category.
You can also do split-testing and display different popups to different users todetermine which one has the best conversion rate.
Pippity gives you great control over the use of your popups and, when used strategically, it can be very beneficial. Just remember, give your visitors some time on the site before displaying the popup and make sure it’s relevant to them.
