If you’ve joined my email list, chances are you downloaded this Facebook targeting mind map. As a lead generation tool for my business, it’s been awesome. I’ve had people from all over the world getting in touch with me after downloaded the PDF.
Aside from Facebook Ads enquiries, I’ve also had people asking me what WordPress plugins I use for list building. The answer? ThriveLeads Plugin.
I’ve tried a number of plugins for list building including Sumome and PopupDomination, however, I’ve found ThriveLeads to be the most versatile and affordable option out there so far.
What’s so good about ThriveLeads?
Firstly, it’s versatile. You can easily add the follow lead generation form formats to your site using a WYSIWYG editor:
- Sticky Ribbon (similar to a hello bar)
- Popup Lightbox
- In-line forms
- 2 step opt-ins
- Slide in forms
- Opt-in Widgets
It also hooks up with a range of popular email marketing and CRM API’s including:
- Campaign Monitor
- Mad Mini
The ThriveLeads plugin is not completely infallible however. It would be nice to see a welcome mat style option similar to the one Sumome.com has created. Also, I’ve had the occasional issue getting the sidebar widget to show up on some blog posts, but apart from that, I’ve been pleased with ThriveLeads as a lead gen plugin.
