We’ve been talking a lot about list building this month. Sometimes the options can be overwhelming.
Finding just the right plugin or tool that’s easy to setup, doesn’t cost a fortune and beautifully does the job can be challenging. Here are 3 of my favorite tools for capturing opt-ins:
The HelloBar is a notification bar that draws visitors to your call to action on your website. It’s a great way to grow your list.
You can customize the bar color, button and where the button goes – whether it’s a landing page for a product or your email list sign up.

This free plugin allows you to create popup sign up forms without having to code anything – in minutes. You can customize all sorts of options and there are even free tutorials.
You can upgrade to the Pro version and have access to many more options.
- After testing, make sure you update the Show popup every ___ days. The popup developers recommend every 14 days.
- After testing, make sure you update the Time-delayed popup Show after ___ seconds so it doesn’t show immediately for everyone. Maybe a delay of 40-50 seconds will work for you.
MailChimp for WordPress
This plugin is easy and simple to use. Just check a few boxes and pick a color scheme. You simply add the shortcode to your post, page or widget.
