Must-Have Amazing WordPress Plugin That Increases Subscribers & Sales

 

I'm a minimalist when it comes to add-ons, plugins and software programs. I like to run my computers and blogs as clean as humanly possible...

But I just installed this amazing WordPress plugin, because I practically HAD to. I'll explain why - and what you're going to LOVE about it. πŸ™‚

WHY I Installed The WP Notification Bar

Let's start with the "why" because I think that's the most important point. There's one main reason, and then countless other reasons I've discovered that it's totally amazing now that I've actually started using it.

My Instagram following has exploded this year.

But even before that, I noticed in my site stats that the majority of the visitors to my niche site were using tablets or mobile devices. Add in Instagram, which is a mobile-only platform, and that number went on the rise - and fast!

You're probably seeing a similar pattern in your own stats?

The fact is, most people are using mobile devices or tablets these days.

I had one main problem that kept coming up. People in my Facebook Group and on my Instagram account kept asking me "How can I subscribe and get your emails??" That is a GOOD problem to have. Not that they cannot figure out how to sign up, but that they want to bad enough to take the time to ask. πŸ™‚

Realizing they were on a mobile device and couldn't see my sidebar, which has a very obvious subscription form at the top right, I started adding in a subscription form to every post. Still, they actually had to open a post and scroll down to the very end to find that box. And that didn't slow down the number of times a day I got asked "how to subscribe to my site."

Guess what?

Most people will NOT ask. They simply won't see the option, won't realize there IS an option, and so they don't subscribe to your email list.

That is NOT a good problem to have. πŸ˜›

I had to come up with a simple solution that would work well for mobile users, and also desktop users. I could have picked any old WordPress plugin that had a mobile-friendly opt-in overlay...

Here's why I chose the WP Notification Bar

First, because it came highly recommended by my friend Elaine Perry, which is what prompted me to check it out as a potential solution to my problem.

I was immediately impressed! This is NOT just another opt-in bar. Here's a quick description of this versatile, high performing notification bar plugin:

WP Notification Bar is a custom notifications and alerts plugin for WordPress that displays a sleek message bar on your website.

It can help you grow your email list, manage marketing promotions, increase your social media following or grow the audience for specific pages on your website.

This image gives you a few visual examples of what it can do:

It was SO easy to set up!

It has a very friendly user interface, with tons of options already built in, making it easy to connect your mailing list manager and set up a variety of notification bars on your blog or WordPress site.

You can set up a general site-wide notification bar, but you can also set up specific/unique notification bars on individual blog posts.

So if you want to notify readers of something relevant to THAT blog post only, you can do that! πŸ™‚ I'll show you some live examples since I have it set up on my own niche blog. Check it out on both your mobile device and your desktop...

 

Live Examples On MY Blog:

 

How cool is that?!

You can scroll your recent posts, create a strong opt-in incentive, play a video only on certain pages or posts of your site, add an animated bar with an affiliate link on review/product posts, put a countdown timer on special offer pages or posts, etc. There's tons you can do with this one little plugin! πŸ™‚

I've only started using it in the last couple of days, and I'm already seeing fast results. For example, there were 8 clicks on the Keto Krate notification bar... and 4 sales. πŸ™‚

YES, you get stats for each of your notification bars!

Again, that's my affiliate link, and in addition to getting the plugin you should join the affiliate program so you can share this with others!

 

The uses for this notification bar is giving me tons of creative ideas to test out on my niche site. πŸ™‚ It'll be a PERFECT way to promote my new product when it comes out, a great way to monetize archived posts that are getting steady traffic, a great way to encourage visitors to join challenges when I host them, and obviously a GREAT way to increase affiliate conversions on product-based posts & reviews!

Consider all the ways you could use this on YOUR site...

I would love to hear your thoughts!

Best,

p.s. When I got the WP Notification Bar, there were tons of free plugins & resources in my account when I logged in to download it. Cool free WordPress themes, even! I was seriously impressed with that. They REALLY over-deliver. πŸ™‚

  1. I've seen this on other blogs. This is something I will definitely consider once I am in profit mode on my new blog. Keeping it really simple and doing it without investing too much for now.

  2. Where did you find instructions for how to create the bar? I'm not sure how to go about getting an opt-in form in there like you did.

    • Hi Rivky! I just went to the plugin in my WordPress dashboard and got familiar with all the options. For the opt-in notification bar, I clicked Content > Newsletter ... then selected Aweber. And it was really easy to create!

  3. Dang cool! Thank you.

    Hi there Lynn,

    First of all I want to say that I have something in common with you.

    You stated that you want things minimalistic, simple as possible. I also like that.

    As for the article, is short and to the point.

    I'll give a shot to the wp-notification bar.

    Cheers, Clay.

  5. Lynn,
    I absolutely love this! Thanks for sharing. This will be perfect for my new product sales page. Sometimes on a long sales letter it's easy to get lost, and if the copy is good the reader is ready to order at any point during the sales letter.

    What better way to increase sales than to have a notification bar that scrolls with the reader with an "Order Now" button? And / or a "price goes up in" with a countdown bar, urging the reader to order quickly.

    I was recently reading your top 8 wordpress plugins that you use and wondered if you had anymore since that article besides this one?

    Or if you had replaced any on this list with something better? Or if any had been removed from your list? An update would be great!

    For example, I don't see KeywordLuv or CommentLuv by your comments form anymore.

    I was particularly wondering if you use a social marketing plugin for the social media buttons that appear at the top and bottom of your post pages. I love how the buttons appear to sit down below a ledge and when you hover over them they pop up. I wondered if this is a plugin and if so where can I get it?

    Thanks for all the great info!
