Popup Domination

Popup Domination WordPress Plugin is an Exciting List Building Experiment

Since the first time I saw it on a blog of one of my friend, I immediately fall in love with it, and told my self “THIS WILL WORK”! I had an exiting experience with the new Popup Domination plugin that speed up the process of list building like magic, I have got my first 9 subscribers in a few hours and still counting!

I didn’t even think about it more than one minute, I got the Popup Domination plugin and it’s up and running, probably you have seen it today when you visited our blog, and I even customize it to fit our Thesis Skin which gives it a very unique look and feel than any other popup you have seen before on any other blog, I have taken advantage of one of it’s four themes to create our own!

I just know that price will increase soon, so.. don’t miss this chance, only 50 customers will get it at the low price of $47 , I have sold it to 5 clients today, and I am not the only one who actually promote it, there are so many others, and chance will not wait for ever!

It’s very exiting, and if you know me well, then you know that I always to discover new techniques and implement them LIVE on this blog and see the REAL reaction of our blog visitors, that’s what gives me the ability to tell an exciting and true story each time I blog!

So, I am going today to share with you not only one list building plugin, but I have more interesting experiment to share about:

  • Two awesome WordPress plugins help you to build your email list
  • Two ways of building your email list and FAST!

Then you decide which one to go for, and how you will use it the best way that match your own needs!

But first, I want to let you know that I am using Aweber, a cool mailing list service that everybody knows about it! Check it out! And give it a try for only one dollar for the first month! I am sure you will not let it go!

Call it Shady ways! Who Cares?

I usually don’t hide anything, simply because I don’t have anything to hide! An I almost share everything I am learning and it’s part of my own experience, and probably this is why my blog readers never stop coming back unless someone is taking it personal lol!

I am using a very nice and simple plugin called Aweber WordPress Plugin, it connect two sensitive parts of your blog to your email list directly, these parts are your:

  • Registration form
  • Comment form

So, basically the Aweber WordPress Plugin allows you to automatically send an invitation and subscribe new members when they register to your blog, or add a new comment, this is very useful for blogs that open for guest blogging, as you might want to subscribe all your guest bloggers as you need a fast way to let them know about your blog news and updates, so there is no problem with that at all, just go a head and require them to subscribe with no worries, everybody is happy!

But, talking about enabling the plugin in your comment section is a little dangerous thing, because you can tick the check-box in the plugin features to subscribe everyone comment on your blog (this is what I did) and most of your blog commenters will actually not read, not even notice what the heck you put under your comment form, and because people are “too lazy to read” then problems happen, and some will complain about that, specially if you are trying to sell something for them, this will annoy the majority of your subscribers! They will just forget your goods and remember the bads, well.. this is how people are!

So, let me share with you what I got by using this list building technique, you can see the results from my Aweber account, I have got 441 subscribers in only 2 months, and with no work at all more than enabling the Aweber WordPress Plugin:

aweber stats

Someone might call it a “shady technique”, I must say that this technique works just fine if you use it on the right time, but probably in the long term it’s not the best way, as you can get into a mail list problems that you really don’t need!

Plz, put in mind that I am experimenting these techniques live, jut like anything thing else I am experimenting to find out the right way to do things by my own, and my main reason is to develop new ideas for my blog to write about, and share with you what’s really working by approve it to you!

I was expecting more feedback and maybe some bloody reaction, but I was shocked because this technique seems to be working! I actually got one single feedback and 2 complains out of 401 subscribers! But because I really care and it’s my main target to create a safe place, I won’t bother my readers, and this is why I didn’t use this list in a serious way! I am going only to send one single email to let them know that I am closing this list for ever!

Don’t Try this Technique at Home!

Put in your mind that my case could be different than yours, I know my blog authority and I am sure I am not hurting my blog or reputation! but I am not sure about you!

So.. from my own experience, no one will recommend it and I also don’t recommend it! And this is why I un-ticked the check-box and give people more freedom to choose whither they want to subscribe or not! (I have done this based on feedback from the community)

Build your Email List the Right Way

I am sure that everyone of you want to build his own list and FAST! Some of you give free stuff to do it and some others find some other ways, and this is pretty cool!

But what I see and it’s not working is to place your “Mail list sign-up” ugly form on your sidebar and/or below the content area, and wait for months till your list meets a few convinced subscribers! I must say it’s not the very best way, and it will take so long till you reach your very first 100 subscribers! I have done this for a whole month and got only 2 subscribers! Probably because I wasn’t giving away anything, or maybe because my form was not attracting anyone to sign-up (it was not working!).

How Popup Domination Changed Everything?!

I worked yesterday night till 5 AM in the morning of today, I didn’t want to sleep before setting up Popup Domination WordPress Plugin, and make everything fine, and I created a brand new email list to connect it to the plugin, then I activated the plugin and sent to sleep! I don’t sleep that much, so I wakeup around 11 AM, I check my Aweber account to see who jumped in the list, I got 9 subscribers, yes this is just amazing!

It Works with All Major Email List Services

any email list service

They already put 4 different themes, but the good guys of Popup Domination plugin are committing to releasing monthly template packs, for FREE! and I don’t have any doubt about that, but for me I prefer to create my own look and feel, it was based on one of the already available themes and took me just 5 minutes to customize it! This means the Popup Domination plugin will witness a big improvements all the time, and it has a brilliant future indeed!

    Hello! I was wondering if any one cared to send me a sample form made with aweber that I can use with popup domination? I’m having a hell of a time trying to create one there. I want to send a confirmation email to the subscriber and then the thank you email with the download link for their free gift.

    Can any one help me please? I’m new at this!!!!!

      Mmmm Rakesh, why you expect that every blogger should use it? I think they have already gone so far with their list building and they don’t need it!

      Anyways, I know many famous bloggers who are using popup domination plugin and recommend it!

    Hi Hesham (or anyone else) – I was convinced and installed PopUp Domination and instead of getting the uptick in subscribers, it dropped right off. I was using the standard Aweber lightbox and that was doing really well.

    I have it configured to trigger after 7 seconds.

    Weird right? Any ideas or suggestions?
    Thanks!

    • Hesham June 2, 2011, 12:36 pm

      Hi Khalid, sorry for the late reply!

      I can not believe this happening with you! Very strange, the popup dom is working just great for me, so I assume you was not having enough traffic or something that time when you put it up?!

      I hope things are getting better!

    PopUp Domination plugin is the best looking popup opt in box on the market. It’s weird, but when it does popup I don’t get nearly as annoyed as other types of pop ups. I’m still on the fence whether to us a popup at all. I appreciate subscriber rate increases, but I’m nervous about angering readers. I’ll be considering this move carefully, but if/when I add a popup it will be with PopUp Domination.

  • Codrut March 11, 2011, 5:58 am

    Now, I wonder how in the world did these guys get the word out about their plugin, as it seems 8 out of 10 bloggers have already installed it on their blogs. I guess its either an incredible plugin, or they did a great job promoting it?

    What do you guys say?

      Codrut , you’ve got a point, but let me tell you that both things are true!

      Popup Domination is a great plugin, and they have done a fantastic launch and follow up which extended it’s life cycle!

  • Kristof March 8, 2011, 11:19 pm

    I’m curious why, if you’re already using aWeber, why you don’t use aWebers form builder for your subscription popup? They have more options including split testing.

    • Hesham March 9, 2011, 1:30 am

      Hi Kristof,

      I am actually using aweber’s form on three different places like sidebar after single post and on home page at the end of content!

      The popup domination to me is a plus, and I’ve set it’s option to show only once for new visitors!

      Combining results has been great so far with an average of 40 daily subscribers!

      • Kristof March 9, 2011, 2:53 am

        I’m not trying to push aweber — there are lots of good list managements systems available — but aweber forms can be graphically customized, made as popups/lightboxes and set to display X times per user as well. So what exactly does PD offer that AW doesn’t?

        • Hesham March 9, 2011, 3:17 am

          True!

          Let’s look at it from a different angle… Popup Domination is a popup form, but aweber is an email responder service!

          So, the idea of using popup domination here is the easy integration with several email responders (not only aweber) which makes it really useful for those who are using a service that doesn’t provide good looking opt-in forms or doesn’t actually allow high customization for forms!

          I hope this explains how PD can available tool to some people!

          • Kristof March 9, 2011, 3:43 am

            Okay, I can see how it would benefit people who aren’t using a service that provides a lot of features and customization options. But since you are using aweber, what feature/s does PD give you that aweber doesn’t? I use aweber for popup forms, etc. so I’m trying to understand why I should also invest in PD. Thanks.

            • Hesham March 9, 2011, 3:54 am

              For me, personally I prefer dealing with HTML and CSS which PD allow me to because it has a theming platform that you can play with!

              It’s more harder to control the form elements using aweber drag and drop tools to look exactly the way you want it to be! This is why I use an empty form then use CSS to design it in my blog theme files!

              Note: Maybe this is only me! It really depends on how comfort you are with coding and styling!

      • Codrut March 11, 2011, 5:47 am

        It’s a plus definitely. I’m not using on my blog because I prefer to welcome people and let them take action, not slam an offer in their face.

        It depends: you want subscribers or loyal readers and fans. A loyal fan is nurtured within your blog posts faster/better than within autoresponder emails; just imagine how often we send emails (once every 48 or 72 hours, some are doing it weekly)

        With a blog we can let readers visit/click 5 pages in 2 minutes and then decide if they want to join the list…

        What do you guys think?

    Hi,
    Is popup domination intelligent, aka, once a person subscribes, they wont get the popup box on subsequent visits to the site?

    • Hesham March 4, 2011, 9:09 pm

      Hi Josh,

      You can control when the popup will show, everyone week, month or a certain number of days! It depends on the visitor browser’s cookies! So.. well yes.. I can say it’s inelegant :)

      • Codrut March 11, 2011, 5:48 am

        Did you also test/try MaxBlogPress Subscribers Magnet plugin?

        • Bican Valeriu March 18, 2011, 8:32 am

          This plugin is the best for displaying popups but MaxBlogPress Subscribers Magnet is not so good. I only like the sidebar widget and is extremely customizable, you can set your own background image, fields, dimensions, colors. The great feature is the autofill function.
