The Best WordPress Popup Plugin

By now you know that online visitors have a pattern: find, read, leave.

And, you know that 70% of those visitors will never return. That’s why you’re here, right?

You want the best WordPress popup plugin to help you get those site visitors to stay on your site longer, buy something, or at least sign up for your email list so you can market to them later.

Enter OptinMonster.

OptinMonster is more than just the best lead generation software around. It’s also the most powerful conversion software in the world.

Here’s what all that means to your brand:

OptinMonster popups get more interested people on your email list. Interested people spend money.

Leads and conversions. That’s what OptinMonster is built to do. And, we do it really well.

And, the OptinMonster WordPress popup plugin wasn’t just an afterthought. Our popups were built with WordPress users in mind.

That’s why our popups help you grow your email list and boost your sales better and faster than any other popup plugin can.

Seriously. Our customers do amazing things with our popups:

Powerful Exit Intent® Technology

OptinMonster is a pioneer of exit intent popup technology.

Exit Intent® helps you track your user’s mouse behavior and prompts them with a targeted popup message at the precise moment they are about to leave.

Our WordPress exit popups allow you to re-engage the visitor and encourage them to subscribe to your email list or complete their purchase. Exit intent is proven to increase conversions.

We used it on our site, WPBeginner, and increased conversions by over 600%.

But the success doesn’t stop there. Check out what one of our customers, and a respected industry leader, was able to do:

In only 7 months, we added more than 95,000 names to our email list using OptinMonster’s Exit Intent™ technology. We strongly recommend it!

Advanced Page Level Targeting and Behavior Personalization

Our WordPress popup plugin integrates with our powerful targeting and segmentation engine so you can show your perfect popup offer to the right people at the exact right time and maximize your website conversions.

OptinMonster’s page level targeting module lets you show unique offers and campaigns based on visitor’s location and interaction on your website.

This means you can segment your email list and group subscribers based on their interest and interaction with your website, leading to higher open rates, higher click-through rates, increased sales, greater revenue, greater customer retention, and lower unsubscribe rates.

Check out the impact this had for one of our users:

OptinMonster played a critical role in increasing my email optin conversion rate by 469%. In real numbers, that is the difference between $7,765 and $47,748 per month in revenue.

Easy to Use A/B Split Testing

A/B testing is one of the most desired features, but normally it’s extremely hard for beginners to get it going.

Well, we changed all that and now it just works as part of the best WordPress popup plugin on the market.

OptinMonster’s easy A/B split testing tool helps you eliminate the guess work and make data-driven decisions on what works best for your popups and other optin forms.

You can try different content, headlines, layouts, styles, and optin triggers to see what converts best.

Using OptinMonster we got a 300% improvement on our email conversion rates which translated into significant revenue. We have tried many similar popup plugins and nothing can compete with OptinMonster.

OptinMonster is unlike most popup plugins. Most plugins cost you money. OptinMonster makes you money. Most barely get updated – OptinMonster just keeps getting better.
