I’m going to share the good and the bad with the plugin here and I’ve also got a free gift for you at the end of this post, should you want to get more subscribers on your blog and want an easier time getting it set-up.
My Code of Ethics when recommending products to you: You know me if you’ve been reading my blog for a while. I very rarely will promote an affiliate product, but when I do, it’s one that I have personally used and benefited from and I am fully confident that it is something that can help you achieve greater success in your internet network marketing business. I give you my promise that I will ONLY recommend things I’ve purchased and use in my own business and I will NEVER recommend something just for the few dollars I may make if you purchased through my link.
I know that it’s easy to spend a lot of money when getting your business going. You don’t have the experience to know what purchases are going to give you the best results…and trust me please, when I say that I’ve made a lot of unnecessary purchases. But there have been a few things I’ve purchased that have made a big difference in my business and I will share them with you from time to time.
That is absolutely the case with this recommendation and review of the max blog plus subscribers magnet plugin. It totally ROCKS, and I’d be doing you a disservice if I didn’t recommend subscribers magnet to you!
You may have seen the plugin briefly on my blog…appearing as an option to check a box in the comments if you wanted to get my clever marketer kit, the emails that were sent out after someone left their first comment, thanking them for the comment and inviting them to get their free gift, the opt in form at the bottom of my posts, the pop up bar at the bottom of the screen…
I didn’t really pay attention to how well subscribers magnet was really working, but a few weeks ago my blog crashed and I had to start from scratch adding in and configuring my plugins. I started with the biggies like All in One SEO, but I had not added in a recent purchased plugin called Max Blog Plus Subscriber’s Magnet.
It was on my list, but you know how life gets, it was one of those things I hadn’t gotten around to, until I received an email from them that they were relaunching and had upgraded the plugin. It reminded me that I had not yet added subscribers magnet back on my blog.
I figured this was a great time to “test” it out and compare apples to apples if subscribers magnet really worked. I went back to check how many subscribers I had received the week before my blog crashed (63) and how many subscribers I have received this past week (24) when I was not using the plugin.
I had not changed anything. I was still posting the same number of posts, I was getting about the same number of visitors and comments, but I had less than half the subscribers.
You had better believe subscribers magnet is making a comeback on clevermarketer.com today!
Here’s what Subscribers Magnet plugin does:
You can use all or just a few of these features and can customize it to what fits your blog and readers best!
- Auto-fills the opt-in form for your readers (the ones who have already commented)
- Adds a footer bar to your blog
- Makes your opt-in form more noticable in your sidebar
- Adds your opt in form in each and every post
- Adds a subscribe check-box in your comment box
- Silent subscribe (I’m not using this, but it automatically subscribes commenting visitors.)
- Adds an opt-in form inside the comment your subscribers made
- Lets you send a personalized email to your commentators
- Adds delayed pop-ins so the popin shows up after your blog reader has had a chance to recognize the value your content adds to them
- Customize and design your opt in form with pictures, font colors, etc.
Here are is what I like about the Subscribers Magnet plugin:
- I’ve noticed a definite increase in subscribers after using it 63 subscribers vs. 24 subscribers when I’ve not used the plugin.
- It lets me put a footer bar at the bottom of my screen. I can also set it so that it only appears for a certain number of visits so it doesn’t bug my repeat traffic every time the visit my site.
- It will do pop-ups for you (but I don’t have it set to do them on my blog yet.) I know many marketers swear by them, but they just really annoy me and I’m still on the fence about it.
- It puts the opt in form at the end of each post (something I wasn’t doing before.) You can set it so that everyone who comments gets added to your list and they only have to click the confirmation in your email to be a double-opt-in. (I have not done this yet.)
- I love the opt-in check box next to the comments.
- It will put the opt in form right in the comments box after someone makes a comment (I’ve got it set for the 3rd comment), so when someone makes 3 comments on my blog, the opt in form will appear in their comment and since everyone checks their comments to make sure they posted correctly, it is something that gets their attention. Because it doesn’t show up every time, it’s not annoying.
- I can customize the opt in forms any way I want, add graphics, change where it appears on my blog, change if it appears all the time or after a few visits, etc. I think it’s a much more graceful way of reminding my readers of my free offer without annoying them.
- They do have a great 60 day money-back guarantee that you double your subscriber rate or you get your money back!
- It’s 30% off through October 1st! Order here. It is $97 through October 1st and then goes up.
Here’s what I don’t like about Subscribers Magnet:
- It took me about an hour or so to get it all set up. (The only reason I hadn’t set it up again after my blog crash.) I don’t know if this is because I’m finicky about how it looked and wanted to include my graphics and things, but I had to tweak the side bar widget so that my graphics and text looked the way I wanted to and so that it fit within my sidebar. (It was too wide)
- They provide information on what they recommend you set the various features to so that you don’t annoy your readers with too many options for your optin, but the default settings are not what they recommend. I believe they should have set the defaults to what they believed the best approach would be and then allow marketers to get more aggressive if they wish. (Right out of the box it’s set to market more aggressively than they recommend.)
Overall, it’s a very helpful plugin and it’s doing what I hoped it would; increasing my optins!
I’ve created a document for you (free, no opt-in required) of how I’ve set up Subscribers Magnet Instructions. You are welcome to download and use this even if you choose not to purchase through my affiliate link. It helps me to have a cheat sheet to help me set things up. The subscribers magnet setup is not ultra technical. You do have to know how to copy/paste your email autorsponder code, but everything else is pretty easy.
So please let me know if you’re already a subscribers magnet user any tips you’ve discovered for setting it up or getting the maximum results from it in your blog. You are on a dofollow blog so you will get some link love from me if you comment and share.
