1. It Helps You Build High Converting Opt-in Forms ONLY!

That is so right... Tell me when last have you subscribed to a blog or website with some sort of form that looks like below?

Or have you done something like this in 2016?

Here's the truth... Opt-in forms like these might have worked back in those days but not now especially when what we see everyday is website owners asking visitors to subscribe via emails.

No one wants to leave their emails anyhow anymore... So what's the solution? Something more fancier? Like these?

You can so relate this to the cheesecake 3 factor technique to growing your email subscribers I found on Growthlab which involves putting the good irresistible things on display.

You see with Thrive leads you're not only making unlimited beautiful and high converting opt-in forms you're also making something that's super responsive and 'll look great on any device.

A recent study by Statista and Creative Commons found on Digital sunami says that mobile traffic is growing at an unprecedented rate.

mobile internet growth

If your main source of traffic is from the search engines, You should also know that sometimes last year, Google officially stated that the amount of searches from mobile is now higher than that of the normal desktop computer.

If Google says that, Bing and the other search engines can't be far behind.

And what better, stress-free way to do that than to lay hands on a already optimized & responsive opt-in list building creation form plugin? Thrive leads.

In addition to that, Thrive leads due to the fact that it was written with 100% fast and clean code has been tested working well on all browsers.

4. It Puts You In Charge, Decide Where You Want Your Forms to Appear!

My own definition for super advanced targeting! You know how painful it is to design an opt-in form only for you to wanna modify where it appears but you can't due to the fact that the plugin you're using has not that option.

It really hurts...

Well that's not the case with this plugin. You totally are the one in charge of where your forms are displayed and with thrive leads advanced targeting feature you can acquire more leads today displaying laser targeted forms tailored for different people all in different sections of your website.

I have used Thrive leads to build a feature box that looks super sweet on one of our new blogs! It only appears on the homepage then as you proceed you find others specific to where they belong and where you see them.

In thrive leads, we call them lead groups and they're very powerful. With the highlighted part of the screenshot from your dashboard  you can configure any of your beautiful, high converting and unlimited forms to display anywhere ranging from:

  5. Even specific Categories only...

You own your forms and you control where they're displayed not the plugin. The thrive leads short codes function also lets you place forms anywhere in your theme using a standard PHP Code.

5. It Helps You Better Understand Your Opt-in Forms & Visitors.

How many of you can live without seeing the detailed stuff on how your opt-in forms are doing/converting? I can't.

You see this is one reason to love thrive leads. The smart analytics feature helps you gain actionable insights as to how your forms are doing, Conversion rates and so much more...

Are you convinced yet? That's not all... We still have 2 more reasons to go.

6. It Integrates Easily With Your Favorite Email Services, But There's More.

Yeah, It does but not directly with all like Benchmark email marketing software (my favorite). But hey, Thrive leads integrates seamlessly with the following email services thereby making email collection darn easy.

  1. GetResponse
  2. Madmimi
  3. Klickk Tip

And a few others. If your software is not on the list like mine? You can always use your opt-in form html code like I do mine... and it works great.

But wait, That's not all.

If you're the type that conducts Webinar alot, Since Thrive leads integrates directly with services like Webinarjam and Goto webinar, It has a feature you'll love called Sign up Segue, One of the most powerful one click sign up feature ever available in Thrive leads.

This makes signing up for your upcoming webinar stupidly easy for your email subscribers as they won't have to re-enter their emails at the webinar sign up page.

This a plus one for webinar organizers. And people looking for stress free ways to create high converting opt-in forms.

7. Thrive Leads Actually is What I Say It is...

And that's the 7th and last reason you wanna choose this plugin. What did I say Thrive leads is again?

The number Choice for WordPress website owners when it comes to building high converting email opt-in forms that actually works. Period!

Apart from the above mentioned reasons, Here are a few other reasons why I chose Thrive leads and you should too:

  • It's Cheap - Thrive leads is Cheap. In fact it was cheaper in the past but seeing as the plugin is, It had to go up. Compared with others like SumoMe which costs about $100/month for the full version Thrive leads only cost $97 for the unlimited personal sites license.
  • It's Built With Speed In Mind - While most advanced feature rich plugins for WordPress slows down a website, The thrive leads does not. In fact it has a lazy load feature that makes your form loads after everything else only when it comes to Viewport, Amazing!
  • Thrive Leads is All In One - I've tried many many email list building plugin for WordPress. You name it, Optinmonster, Bloom, Ninja Popups, Layered Popups, WP Subscribe pro and one other... What I've noticed especially with Ninja Popups is you need some other addon which you'll have to pay for separately to get most important features activated for you. Optinmonster does this too but in a coded way.
  • You're creating Living Forms - With Thriveleads your opt-in forms are moving, they're alive and not static thereby making it draw more attention to itself. With the availability of various events and animations your forms won't go un-noticed.

Many other crazy features. Like have you seen any other opt-in plugin that lets you add the below elements to your forms just for conversion purposes?
