But the harsh reality is this…
“Pop–ups collect more emails than any other tactic“, according to co–founder of HelloBar, CrazyEgg, and KISSMetrics Neil Patel.
So when I heard that my friend and digital strategist Nathalie Lussier was developing a new kind of popup software with her husband, I was intrigued. I know that she has a strong point of view when it comes to user experience and conversions, so I took a look at her new WordPress plugin.
It’s called PopupAlly, and they’re baptizing it the polite popup.
In my mind, “polite” and “popup” don’t go together.
Yet I checked it out, and it’s amazing what this nifty piece of code can do. First, it lets you choose from 5 different display modes… so you can show the popup right before someone leaves (in a gentle way), after someone explicitly clicks a link to open a popup, or after they’ve reached a certain point on your page.
Not only that, but you’ve got a slew of embedded designs so you can add a non-popup opt-in to your sidebar, do a horizontal opt-in below your header, or a floating opt-in bar at the top or bottom of your page.
It’s also one of the fastest and cleanest interfaces I’ve seen on a plugin. These guys know their stuff, and they care about the look and feel as much as the effectiveness and functionality.
Now, the most important piece of the puzzle is whether it helps with list building, without annoying visitors.
Well, Nathalie ran an experiment on one of her non-marketing blogs and with just a simple exit-intent opt-in, opt-ins increased by 220%. In this case study that means the difference between 4,000 new opt-ins or 10,000 new opt-ins per year.

With the PopupAlly team, you’re in good hands. They’ve got 5-star customer service, and because it’s a husband and wife team, you know that nothing is being outsourced overseas and that the plugin is going to continue to be maintained and supported over the years.
So, don’t let old school online marketing get you down… there IS a way for you to quickly build your email list with hot-to-trot prospects, without turning people off.
