This is Day 23 of the 30 Days, 30 Killer WordPress Plug-ins Series.
Back on Day 10 of this series, I talked about OptinSkin. This is a pretty nice opt-in form builder for WordPress. And, if you don’t have the theme hacking skills to design and place opt-in forms anywhere you want on your blog, OptinSkin is a good solution for you.
But, then there’s Hybrid Connect.
But, there’s a good reason for that – and it goes right to the heart of why they call this HYBRID connect.
See, one of the features of this plug-in is the ability to show Facebook-integrated opt-in forms. By using Facebook Connect, people could opt into your list using their existing Facebook information. Seeing as a lot of people surf around the Internet essentially logged into Facebook, the idea is that you will get higher conversions by pre-filling the form and having the recognition of Facebook.
In order to make all that work, apparently they had to keep a lot of the resulting source code on-site.
Now, that was all just me being me. 🙂 As I said, I was having some server issues at the time, so it likely swayed my decision. However, Hybrid Connect is one HELL of an opt-in form plug-in.
It basically combines many of the features which often require separate solutions. It does all that OptinSkin does. It can do nice-looking Popup Domination style pop-ups. You can do slide-in forms similar to Scroll Triggered Box. It can do squeeze pages, like OptimizePress. It does GotoWebinar registrations.
It just does a TON of stuff. And it is very well built.
I’d definitely recommend you check out Hybrid Connect. I can’t give you my FULL recommendation because I personally decided not to use it due to the potential performance hit, but I definitely recognize a capable plug-in when I see it.
