Today in the blogging era mailing list has a lot to do in term of driving traffic. There are many mail list subscriber builders some render free services while others render only paid services
Some of the mailist subscribers widely used are Ymlp, Get Responds, Aweber, Sendy etc.
In one of my previous post about mailist I have discussed the meaning of mailist and its important to your website . can read it here
Sometimes it is hard committing to paid services especially when you have a very low traffic. it may not be a surprise that at the end of a whole month of subscription you hardly get 5-10 subscribers that is if you are even able to get any.
This is why it is a good idea sticking to free services until your business grows then you can migrate to pro versions.
I have talked about YMLP-The Best Free 2016 mailist service for bloggers but today am going to discuss how you can set up free mail list to your WordPress website using MailMunch and the plugin .please continue bellow.
How to set Up Free mail list Using Mailmunch plugin
Download and install the mailmunch plugin to your WordPress bog.
After successful installation you will see a new window on your WordPress admin Dashboard at the left side menu click on it.
Now sign up with MailMunch
Having signed up Select the option create your first optin form
You will be prompted to a new page were you will need to fill your form choose your mail layout from among the given five choices which are:- Popover, Embedded, Topbar, Scrollbox and Sidebar.
Select your mailList theme. note this option entails only two paid and free. if you choose the free theme you can later upgrade to pro version when your business finally grows.
Now customise your appearance in terms of colors , text and other personal configuration instead of using the default.
You can also Use HTML customisation if you are good at HTML language. but if you are not better use the simple method lest you get your mailist into trash.
Now the next option is to remove the MailMunch logo this will prompt you to upgrade version but if you don’t have the fund you can leave it like that since will not distract your subscribers neither does it have any diminishing effect on your blog…..
Set the time your optin form will appear to your site visitors.
from the next option you will be asked to integrate an email subscription service like GetResponse and Aweber.
This integration option is a must , but if you don’t have an account, the mailmunch plugin will still saves your email subscribers in their own database and you can export it as a CSV file at any time.
since you can still save your data in your database if you don’t want this option you can just skip it to the next step.
From the next step you will be asked if you want to continue with the free account or a migrate to a paid account.
Like you know we have already wanted the free option lol. so just click on Finish Setup and now you are done….Now your form will appear in your blog according to your configuration style.
Not to bridge too far you can see how it will appear on your blog
