“The money is in the list” they say.
The email list, that is.
So one of the most important things your website should be doing for you is getting you leads, growing your email list. And how do you do that?
Using opt-in forms. Which is what I want to talk about today.. one of the best opt in form softwares I have used to date, Convertbox!
My Review on Convertbox Opt In Software
If you still have the same popup everywhere on your website, or you’re not implementing 2-step popups, or worse – you’re using the default forms that come with your email autoresponder, you need to upgrade to Convertbox.
Why? Because a dedicated opt-in software can help increase the conversion rate on your website, getting you more leads with the same amount of traffic. I personally saw that result when combining Convertbox with [Drip] and am never going to look back.
I went from getting an almost nonexistent conversion rate on a blog post with Drip’s native forms, to a 5% conversion rate overnight when implementing a Convertbox timed popup and exit intent popup. And yes, it was the same offer and the same copywriting content used from the Drip CTA to the Convertbox CTA.
This isn’t just any opt-in software. Here’s what I love about it:
- Great templates
- Fast deployment
- A/B Testing (just released!)
- PERSONALIZATION integrated with your email marketing software
- Two step opt ins (where you click a button first)
- Timed pop ups
- Exit intent popups
- Full-screen and lightbox style
- Header and footer bar popups a la Hellobar
- Buttons and easy to understand settings galore
- It looks amazing out of the box
- Support is fantastic
- They’re always coming out with updates
- External CTA’s (holy cow)
- You can connect as many autoresponders as you want, even of the same brand
- There is only a one time fee
Why is Convertbox better than established software like Optinmonster?
Optinmonster does many of the same things, yes, but for an ongoing monthly fee, and the fee increases if you want all of the features like A/B testing and non-branded popups.
Even on Convertbox’s smaller plan, there is no company branding or restriction of features.
Many other popular opt-in software have platform limitations, for example Thrive Leads is limited to WordPress. Convertbox can be used anywhere and is extremely easy to install and setup – I was getting more leads within 24 hours of purchase.
Final Thoughts on Convertbox: Do I Recommend It?
YEP. Buy it. 100%. It’s the new software on the block and it already rivals the highly established opt-in software that has existed for a while, and they’re continually improving it even in the few months I’ve had it.
