pippity-iconIf you are anything like me, even though you’ve heard popup forms can help you grow your e-mail list, you’ve resisted using them because we hate being interrupted by them right when we are trying to figure out if a site has useful information or not. Now there is a plugin that can help you build your list without aggravating your website visitors.

The Pippity WordPress plugin not only makes it super easy to create great looking popup forms, it also give you tons of control over how that popup behaves.

Creating a popup form is dead simple. You pick a template, customize it by following the steps in the wizard, hook it up to your email list provider and you’re good to go. While it’s simple to get up and running, you can still get fairly sophisticated with your design.

Pippity has built in support for the following email list providers:

  • Aweber
  • Madmimi
  • MailChimp
  • Constant Contact
  • 1ShoppingCart
  • Get Response
  • Campaign Monitor
  • Graphic Mail
  • iContact

Is your email provider not on the list? Not to worry, you can cut an paste your sign up form html into Pippity and it will take care of the rest (this is method I used to set up Pippity to work with Infusionsoft).

Once you create your form you can control when it displays. You can specify the time before it appears, whether you want to wait until someone gets finishes reading an article, and how many pages someone views before they see the popup. You can set filters to exclude the popup from certain pages. You can also control whether a popup shows depending on the page or post category.

Pippity also track analytics so you can see how well your popup form (or forms, you can create as many as you like) are performing. If you create more than one popup you can compare analytics between any two forms. You can even to A/B testing with Pippity forms.

Pippity’s pricing is incredibly affordable, starting at $49 for a single site. You can get a 5 site license for $87, and if you are a developer you can get an umlimited license for $164
