Fun fact: Most people never see the home page of a website. Usually, the first impression comes from following a social media link and landing on a promoted or otherwise random blog post on your site. This is a great article that not only gives you the importance of adding your opt-in after blog posts, it also includes a handy ‘how to’ guide complete with screenshots.
Signing up for your email list is a natural next step, and people are more likely to take that step if you make it clear and easy for them. From there, you can send them through a welcome sequence that builds trust and brings them back to your website for more.

In this tutorial, we’re going to use the free PopupAlly plugin.
Go to Plugins > Add New and search for PopupAlly. Then install and activate.
The free version allows you to add two opt-ins to your site, and you can choose from a popup or embedded forms before or after your posts or at the bottom of your site. The Pro version allows you to add unlimited opt-ins anywhere on your site and gives you more control over the look and feel of your opt-in.
