Here are some alert example screen shots. You can pretty much design your own from scratch using this plugin.
An optin alert.
A simple alert.
The beauty of this plugin – and what I particularly like about it – is that it sits there doing nothing until your visitor clicks one of your activation links.
When they do, then the alert is displayed to them.
THEY’RE the ones that actively trigger it.
This alert could be to convey some important information about your site or services, an optin form for more information on the topic, or a special offer.
For example, a reader clicks a link to find out more information about a topic they’ve just been reading about and they get an optin form to complete before they can get to the page.
The nice thing about this is, at this point you know they’re good candidates for your product or services and so are extremely likely to fill in the form and join your list.
A sort of “squeeze” presented right inside a link.
Or, you could present them with a special offer and an invitation to find out more.
Or, give them some informative “Learn More” content to make instructions or training easier to follow.
The plugin admin is pretty much self-explanatory and very easy to use. Here are some annotated screen shots of the admin panel.
