If you are really serious about blogging and want to make a business out of it, then I would strongly suggest you, to put your efforts in making people subscribe to your blog so that they can be brought back to your blog again and again.
This point becomes more important when you see how unreliable search engines traffic is, the Panda update in Google search has already destroyed so many blogs because they are getting all their visitors from Google.
Traffic from Social Networking sites like Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus can be made consistent by making people subscribe to your blog on these channels.
Email Newsletter is one tool that can be placed on the top of everything because you have the power to directly communicate with your subscribers.
In this post, I am listing few of the best Subscription Plugins that will help you increase the opt-in rate for up to 700%. These all are Premium plugins, which means, you will have to pay an amount to use them but considering it makes the process of capturing leads is so easy, it’s totally worth every penny you spend on these tools.
I have been using Popup Domination on few of my blogs since 2010 and I love it. There are only a few premium plugins that I use and Popup Domination is one of them, It is the same plugin that I use on Evergreen Recipes (my wife’s blog), and the opt-in rate increased 3x since I started using it, which is nice.
Popup Domination Templates are nicely designed and you can choose any of their templates to make it blend with the design of your site. At one point in time, it was the only thing that looks pretty on my blog, prettier than the blog itself, and yes, effective also.
The plugin also offers Slit Testing to see which popup works best and converts well, so that you can continue using it. I am very satisfied with this plugin.
OptinMonster is another great premium tool for increasing your subscription rate, OptinMonster is the newest plugin in this category but has become very popular in short span of time because of its awesome features.
I have seen this plugin being used on blogs I read every day. I have also read many positive reviews from top bloggers in different industries. Which makes me consider this plugin for this blog and write an in-depth review of it.
Pipity also has got many positive reviews, it is a feature-rich plugin that will increase your subscription at a rate which is more than any other plugin. It is also easy to build. The feature they advertise the most is the ability to display the popup conditionally, like when a reader reaches at the end of the article, the popup will appear, or when the readers have viewed a certain number of pages.
Pippity offers different templates with different color schemes to make it look good on any site. and yes it does not slow down your site.
Ninja Popups plugin is listed on CodeCanyon, which is an Envato Marketplace, which is the reason it is priced lower than all the premium plugins I have listed above and it’s not the only positive thing about this plugin, it is more than just a newsletter subscription popup, it can actually pop up any kind of content, like videos, cards, Facebook like box etc.
Plus is also works with all the major email marketing services like MailChimp, Aweber, iContact, Get Response etc.
The best popup type that I liked the most is Exist Intent, which makes the subscription box pop up only when a visitor is going to close the browser.
All the popup plugins that have been mentioned in the post are high-quality products with positive reviews, they all offer similar features and any of them can get your work done.
My suggestion to you is to only invest in these premium tools when you are serious about your blog’s growth and want to take it to the next level.
