the battle I endured before choosing OptinMonster.
You have no idea.
Well, I imagine some of you do, based on your own epic struggles to cobble together an effective marketing system. And due to the fact that you’re here, hangin’ with me.
OK. I loved OptinMonster right away.
But based on other tools I was trying to integrate, and based on waffling end game plans, I couldn’t tell whether or not OM would work for me.
I tell you this because if you are NOT familiar with this type of an ordeal you probably will be, once you wholeheartedly decide to make a run at your Big End Game, as I have with KRT.
But, I did settle on OptinMonster.
To discuss all I was up against that created the earlier confusion would be counterproductive.
So let’s focus on the reasons why I’m with OM now.
Email Marketing Service Optin Forms.
Aweber, Constant Contact, MailChimp…doesn’t matter who you decide to go with for your email marketing. You will soon discover that their optin forms are (and I’m trying to say this with love) somewhat shitty.
- Plain. Boring. And uneditable on your end if you’re not already a high level coder.
- Plus you’ll find they don’t like to go at the end of posts in any neat way. Or sometimes at all!
- Or they aren’t able to be placed “inline”, which is when you see a banner somewhere in the middle of the text on a page.
- Or they don’t allow for a Thank Page redirect in a way that suits your needs.
Now, this next thing might be a biggie for you too.
You don’t need to know any code!
Their editor lets you pick from a wide variety of goal specific formats and then go make’ em look how you want from there.
It’s called “WYSIWYG”. What You See Is What You Get. You don’t have to know code to make your optin forms beautiful!
Their editor gives you easy choices for various steps of the formatting process and you click on them.
Now, do they seriously require NO code from you?
And if you DO know code, there are areas inside their editor where you can make your forms sing!
OM makes the form do what it does and look like it looks, in conjunction with the place from where you send your emails to your people…your list.
(Hopefully, you’ll click on my optin on the right or at the bottom. I created them with OM. You’ll get added to my list. Then we’ll not only be buddies, you’ll also get to see how this system works!)
OptinMonster also controls who sees what, when!
You have complete control over the display of your forms.
So you can have it be that people who are already signed up will no longer see any forms on your site.
Or forms can display after a certain amount of time has passed or after someone’s read a certain distance down the page, etc.
Sky’s the limit with these guys.
And remember, if you end up running with a platform plan similar to mine, I’ll have a course put together to show you how I did it sitting there on the right with all the others, soon.
Might already be there now, depending on when you’re reading this!
