A lot of times when people tell you that you need to get something for your site TODAY it’s because they think the product is so great that you don’t want to spend another day not having it.
While I do think of OptinMonster that way, that’s not the reason that you literally need to get it TODAY (or at least in the next couple of days).
What the heck is OptinMonster and why should you even care?
I’ve been slowly changing over my signup forms on all of my sites from a variety of different options to only using OptinMonster. I started the process on this blog when I switched from Aweber to Mailchimp and was so happy with the results that I made it my goal to switch every one of my sites by the end of the year.
Not only was the process easy, but I have been seeing better conversion rates.
I was using ListBuilder before and here was the last set of stats that I pulled before I switched the site:
You can see that for the time that I ran a specific set of popups, the conversion even doing A/B testing was never higher than 2.43%. I do love the A/B testing option in ListBuilder, but it is definitely not a feature unique to them.
Here’s a sample of my data from one of the tests I have been running using OptinMonster:
Just one campaign without even running A/B tests yet to maximize conversions yielded me a 3.23% conversion rate.
Also…ListBuilder costs me $20 a month per site and I paid $99 a year for 3 sites for OptinMonster ($199 a year for unlimited sites). If you wait to sign up after August 23, the cheapest plan will be $108 and the Unlimited Site plan will be $348. My $99 plan will be going up to $228.
Obviously I have a lot still to learn and play with when it comes to OptinMonster. My dataset isn’t huge for my campaigns because I have been changing them up and figuring out how their system works. But even the limited test above with 500 popups is enough to tell me that it is worth continuing to use them and see how I can increase that even further.
For those of you who need more specifics on their popup timing, customer segmenting, mobile-specifics, reporting, etc. I would suggest that you visit their site and read up on it yourself. They have so many great options that I am just scratching the surface!
