So, what is PopUp Domination?
It is a WordPress plugin for list building that creates a PopUp window for your blog to capture email leads.This plugin’s integration of an opt-in box is designed to increase your blog site’s visitors subscription rate. It is compatible with most email autoresponder providers including: AWeber, GetResponse, iContact, MailChimp, and Constant Contact.
The PopUp generated by the plugin is not a standard PopUp window but rather a lightbox that opens inside the website window, and thus, it is technically not a popup. When the lightbox PopUp appears after a user-configured delay, it will freeze the page your visitor is on, and display the opt-in form while the website is slightly darkened but visible. This focuses the visitor’s entire attention to the opt-in box while the other visual stimuli is suppressed. Pretty ingenious. And, moreover, there is no risk of the PopUp being blocked by PopUp blockers.
PopUp Domination is easily customizable and comes with 4 professionally designed themes, 15 different color combinations, and 8 button styles. It also has the capability to provide 4 list points to highlight your product or offer, and thus provides a simple and easy process to create an ad copy by simply filling in the blanks.
What it does PopUp Domination?
It’s for WordPress bloggers who have an email newsletter and wants to increase their subscription rate. Once the plugin is installed and activated, it’ll pop up a subscription box whenever a person visits your site, however, you can configure how often it’s shown to the same person. Some people like to pop up the box every time someone visits your site, returning or not.
My preferred settings are to show the box to everyone at first and then show it to them again after 7 days.
So why does the popup domination plugin work so well? I’ve definitely seen an increase in subscriber rate to my newsletter since using this plugin. The plugin seems to work so well because the popup templates which you are supplied with are high quality and are visually pleasing to your visitor.

As of the writing of this article, the plugin has the following settings available: 4 different pop up templates to choose from; Multiple options for the template and button colors; Easy embedding of many of the popular mailing list services (MailChimp, AWeber, etc.); Customization of text shown on the popup; Allows you to add quick bullet points; Schedule how often it appears to visitors; and Advanced settings where pros can edit the template and CSS files
How To Increase Your Email Opt-in Rate
Most of you will know that email marketing is a big part of their income, without it they wouldn’t be where they are today. This is how it works: You get people to opt-in > Promote Something On ThankYou Page > Sell Affiliate Products in Autoresponder > Email List at Any Time Promotions and Updates! All marketer believe that anyone who has a mailing list should be giving something away to entice people into signing up, in many case they created a 7 day free eCourse to creating your first profitable blog. They then set up an autoresponder in Aweber so that every day for 7 days they get lessons, then after that they switch to weekly and in between weeks they send out promotions.
Having a mailing list can be quite simply and it really is the biggest game changer you can have for your business, ask any guru or big internet entrepreneur and they will say the power is in the list and this is because they can keep sending back visitors time after time to their sites promoting new offers and content.
Designing Your Lightbox Opt-in
Once you install the plugin you need to click PopUp Domination on the left hand side under Settings and you will be presentation with a page like this, you will see in the top right that it is turned off and that you need to activate it once you have added the settings you want. You will see across the top is the links to different pages in the plugin and down the left side are all the styling options.
Start by choosing from one of the 4 great designes, personally I like number 4 because you can add an eCover which increases conversions. Then select the colour of the button, personally I think this should match the colour of your site, so if you have a blue site, pick a blue button. Now you get to choose from 15 colours, I really like some of the colours, it may sound odd but I think the Grape colour looks quite cool! For this design, I went with the colour black, you will notice that their is a preview of the template and the colour you chose to the right.
Choosing Your Theme and Colours
Adding your Email Providers HTML
Next we have to add the text we want to see on the lightbox, we have let you fully customize this from the title to even the text you see on the submit button. On the theme you can chose for your lightbox and you have the option to add a image so you uploaded an eCover design of the course you are giving away – this will increase your conversions further and by a lot! If you want to get a well designed eCover, check out the eCover Creator 3D tool, you can design it yourself, similar to using Popup Domination, all you do is pick from options and it generates it for you.
Adding Text To Your Lightbox
Adding your list fields is easy, add the text you want to see on each line and it’s really as simple as that. If you want to add more bullet-points just click Add new and you can add more.
Adding Bullet-Points To Your Lightbox
Scheduling your lightbox is really important, you want to make sure you choose the right options, however for mass exposure you can choose 0 and it will show on every page or you could choose 999 and it will only show once ever. Another thing we let you do is choose is how long after landing on your blog do you want the lightbox to appear, I personally thing 0 or 2 seconds is best, if you leave it much longer people will of started reading your posts and then it can become an annoyance
