Building Your Email List is Easier Now

Building Your Email List is Easier Now

You know those billboard ads that you see littering the highway, the ones you pass by every day on your way to work. How often do you actually look and engage with them and how often do they completely blend into the background and you don’t give them a second thought?

Well, popups can be EXACTLY the same! But the problem is that they can be a great lead magnet to attract customers to specific services and drive engagement with your website. 

So what is the solution?

You know those billboard ads that you see littering the highway, the ones you pass by every day on your way to work. How often do you actually look and engage with them and how often do they completely blend into the background and you don’t give them a second thought?

Convert Pro is a lightweight but hugely powerful plugin that we are proud to already provide to all our customers using the EZWP Complete (soon to be EZWP Membership) plan. 

So how is this plugin different? And what will it offer you?

Convert Pro takes popups and opt-in lead magnets to a whole new level allowing you to completely customize their appearance using a super intuitive interface. What this means is that you can create completely custom popups that will actually grab people’s attention when they are navigating your website. 

Let’s dig a little deeper into the host of functions in this lightweight plugin.

Design to your heart’s content

The fully customizable designs are really what this plugin is all about. It was originally launched back in 2017 when nobody else was considering how important varied designs are to encouraging engagement with visitors. 

The bulk of the interface is incredibly straightforward and shares a similar layout to many of the other popular opt-in plugins like SumoMe and Optin Monster, but that is where the similarities end.

The design interface is incredibly intuitive and affords you complete control over where elements are placed. It is about as close to working on a blank canvas as you can get!

If that does make you feel a little nervous, we completely understand. A lot of people can be put off if they need to start from scratch. Fortunately, ConvertPro also includes an extensive list of templates that provide a launchpad for inspiration. From there you can design to your heart’s content. 

Well-thought-out details like the addition of alignment lines when moving elements around the design canvas are a real timesaver and they take the stress out of thinking about whether everything is lined up correctly or not. 

Add some variety

Convert Pro provides you with a total of eight different types of popup. Our personal favorites, and the ones we use most often, are the modal popup , the info bar , and the convert mat

Modal Popup

Your classic, old faithful style popup. This will appear on top of your web content with an opaque white background that highlights your beautiful design within. You can tweak all of the content in here—as you can with all of them—to create a custom form or just include a simple Call To Action (CTA).

Select any you want or start from scratch and make it your own. Add your own graphic as the background

Info Bar

This is less of a popup and more of a constant on your page, which is why we love it. Ideally suited to limited-time offers or specials, it will display a bar with your custom messaging and CTA, either at the top or bottom of the page and it will remain there as you scroll.

Great for important announcements or maybe a sale or highlight a product/service on your eCommerce store

Convert Mat

You can think of the convert mat as more of a landing page because it completely fills your browser window containing a background image and your value proposition in the center. If your visitor doesn’t want to see it anymore, they can easily scroll down from it and continue browsing. 

The variety of options afforded by the plugin means that you can create content across multiple pages that will always appear engaging in a totally different way and increase engagement.

Another unique way to build your list is the Convert Pro Convert Mat module

Custom popup triggers

This is one of the best features of the plugin, the ability to completely customize how popups are triggered on your site based on your visitor’s behavior. 

They allow you to display your content at the key moment when a visitor may be spending more time reading your page—a clear indication of interest— or if they are about to leave it—one last try at grabbing their attention.

You have full control over setting your trigger when the popup module will appear to your site visitors.

The real advantage of creating custom popup triggers is that they feel less forced. What you are saying is that you want to give the customer some time to browse your information and content before pouncing with an offer or CTA. 

Think of it like going into a store. It can be very off-putting when you step foot into a store and the shop clerk immediately jumps on you trying to “help out”. It’s so much nicer when they say hi and then give you a few minutes to look around before asking if you need help with anything in particular. 

These are the kind of experiences you can create for your own website using ConvertPro

Convert Pro’s bonus features

In addition to these standout features, there are a few other additional benefits that we could see for our EZWP Members. 

ConvertPro offers around 38+ third-party integrations so you should have no problem incorporating the plugin with your preferred platforms.

That’s a lot of integration!

You can quickly switch between multiple screen sizes to be sure that your popups look just as appealing if they are viewed on a desktop or on a mobile device. 

The plugin won’t affect the speed and performance of your site because it passes off your analytics data to Google Analytics rather than storing it on your WordPress dashboard keeping it very light.

And finally, one of the questions you may be having is why you would need a new plugin to design popups when you could just as easily make them in Photoshop or Canva. Well, if you were to use one of those platforms, your result would be a static image. By using ConvertPro, your popup is fully readable (text on images is not) by Google so it can feed into your Search Engine Optimization (SEO). But the good news is you can add the static image you make in your favorite graphics program to the Convert Pro creator.

Easily build your mailing list

ConvertPro works with the most popular third-party integrations such as MailChimp, Mailster, ActiveCampaign, HubSpot, AWeber, SendinBlue, Constant Contact, Mailgun, Mailjet, FluentCRM so you can grow your mailing list and ensure that every contact is being fed into your Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system.

These are just a few of the integrations available and you can find a full list on the ConvertPro website.

We are confident that your email marketing system should be compatible, but if not, please feel free to contact us and we will find you a solution. 

Can we tell you a secret advantage of how to use ConvertPro and your Email Marketing Service? Offer a Free eBook with a title of “The Top 3 Things that make _____ Easy”. Set up the Email Marketing service to Auto respond and send the eBook when a visitor submits their name and email address in your new ConvertPro popup. It’s a Win Win for you and for your visitor.
