If you have spend a fair amount time in blogosphere, then you probably know that the money is in your email list…and that is so true. By building a premium mailing list, you can generate a ton of traffic almost on demand to any new blog posts, as well as regularly promoting other people’s products as an affiliate.
If you ask any affiliate marketer or A-list blogger their biggest mistake, the answer would be not building mailing list from the day 1. Email List is one of the stable assets you can build for your WordPress blog.
In the past I’ve mentioned a lot of premium list building plugins for WordPress including Pippity, Newsletter Signup, Optin Skin, Subscribers Magnet, List Eruption, etc. And today I’m happy to do a review of the new list building plugin called Hybrid Connect.
So lets start with the review…
Hybrid Connect Review
One of the most amazing things of this plugin is the ability to allow the users to customize the whole opt-in form design from the front-end. The plugin comes with a lot of fantastic & nicest looking optin form templates.
The concept of Hybrid Connect is to offer all the list building options in one single plugin. Another fantastic feature is: the “Hybrid” feature. This is a feature that no other plugin has and that combines maximum conversion rates with maximum lead quality, for your list building efforts.
With HybridConnect, you will get a single solution for plugins like Popup Domination, Subscribers Magnet and a LOT MORE. So you will save a lot of money just by buying one single solution: Hybrid Connect.
Hybrid Connect Features:
- Hybrid connect has most highly customizable opt-in form builder.
- Works with almost all the popular autoresponder services.
- Compatible with all Browsers and fully responsive design.
- Hybrid Connect Lightboxes to get more leads.
Installation & Usage
The first thing you’d need to do is to purchase the plugin, as it’s a paid one. After making the purchase, install and activate the plugin. Installation will take a minute or 2.
When it comes to creating custom opt-in forms, I won’t say it is easy. It’s not an easy-to-use plugin, if you’re a complete newbie when it comes to technical things. Though, I’ll be doing my best to explain each feature of the plugin and how to use it (even if you’re complete newbie).
How to use the Hybrid Connect plugin
Once the plugin is installed, head over to “HybridConnect” options page that you’ll found under the left menu bar.
Step 1 > Paste the activation code that you have got after making the purchase, in the “license key” field.
Step 2 > Next step, is to create the Optin form by clicking on “Add a New connector” button, and connect it with your autoresponder service. It currently supports Aweber, iContact, GetResponse, Autopilot, Infusionsoft, mailchimp and ConstantContact.
Step 3 > Customize the web forms with the “Hybrid Form Builder”. There are four sections:
- Templates: It allows you to choose the premium templates and gives you an option to save the custom templates.
- Customize: This is where you’ll change the size, text color, font family, background color, button size, etc.
- Enter your Text: Here you’ll going to add the optin form text or messages to show your visitors.
- Images: You can easily upload / edit or change the position of images through the custom builder.
This is not the best plugin, but has everything that you’d need to build your mailing list. HybridConnect is a good product but very new in the game.
