  • Did you know that 70% visitors leaving your blog will not come back? And even if your content is good?
  • Did you know that all professional bloggers need at least 15% of their daily or monthly traffic to their newsletter?
  • Did you know that a list of subscribers can also earn more money on the internet?
  • Did you know that popups convert 10 better than any other type of email capture form?
  • Did you know that…

In short, you need a newsletter. And to build your list of targeted prospects, you absolutely have to use the best tools ... or let's say rather, THE BEST TOOL when it comes to email capture: Optin Monster. This plugin will allow you to boost the listings to your list of more 300%.


Sometimes, on some blogs when opening a page, a window opens (One popup) and asks us (Sometimes imposes) to subscribe to the newsletter. This practice is very annoying for visitors, therefore very little recommended. Because you have to say it as it is, NO ONE LOVES POPUPS!

And this is the difference with OptinMonster. It only displays the popup when visitor tries to leave your site. This one should not therefore complain because at no time during his navigation on the blog, he was “disturbed” by the viewer. This is possible thanks to the functionality “Exit Popup”.

You can also use this tool to display promotional messages, share discount coupons and more. And it's not over !

OptinMonster also offers the possibility of adding a newsletter subscription form on the sidebar of the blog, at the bottom of the articles and to the right of the blog. Personally, I believe it is The best capture plugin Email. It is the most complete and the one that is most regularly updated.

I highly recommend it. And if you need help buying and setting it up, you can choose from the English tutorial below or ask us for help via our contact page.

OKAY. I believe it is time to take the next step.
