Answers to Common Questions About Subscribers Magnet
I recently introduced you to Subscribers Magnet, the plugin that DOUBLED my optin subscription rates!
There have been some questions though – not surprising given how powerful this plugin is – and I wanted to put them together in one place for you!
What Is Subscribers Magnet?
Subscribers Magnet is a WordPress plugin which will rapidly build your email list by using the technology in some unconventional and unique way. It’s unobtrusive and highly impactful.It has power to grow your list conversion rate by 300%.
Who Makes Subscribers Magnet? Should We Trust Them?
Subscribers Magnet was created by Pawan at MaxBlogPress.com. MBP has a GREAT reputation in the WordPress community and they focus on plugins that make your life easier. They also cater a lot to those that are focused on monetizing their blogs, rather than just having a hobby site. MaxBlogPress has a ton of free plugins including their ping optimizer (which if you don’t already use please go get!), their favicon plugin, their stripe ads, and their banner ads plugins. (You can see the banner ads plugin running in my sidebar.) They are also the creator of the much loved Ninja Affiliate premium plugin that I’ve mentioned before. Now they’ve introduced Subscribers Magnet! These guys understand the need for results.
I had the opportunity to work PERSONALLY with Pawan on beta testing Subscribers Magnet and have used it EXTENSIVELY. There’s a lot of praise coming in for Subscribers Magnet from some big names, but few have had a chance to do as much testing with it as I have! I’m actually still working with them on continuing to improve it as I find things that would be nice to see tweaked.
MaxBlogPress also has a really great blog that I read regularly. Its one of the few that I subscribe to from my main email account if that tells you anything!
Are You An Affiliate For This Plugin?
You bettcha! And proud of it! I am INCREDIBLY picky about the companies I support. And while I have a ton of affiliate links (going to buy something? Just ask me for a link!) there aren’t many I’ll get out here and shout about.
It does slightly annoy me that there’s a ton of super affiliates running around promoting the plugin that didn’t take the time to REALLY put it through its paces, but what’s a gal to do?
What does DOUBLE or TRIPLE Your Subscriber Opt-Ins Really Mean?
For example, if you actually get 100 unique visitors to your blog on a daily basis [on average] and you get a 5% conversion rate, meaning 5 subscribers, then using this plugin, you could get 10-15 subscribers instead, from the same amount of traffic.
Can I Really DOUBLE My Optin Rates With Subscribers Magnet?
When you use the majority or all of the “hitting” points available in Subscribers Magnet, then you should DOUBLE your email subscription rate. However, in business, as in life, there are no guarantees.
That’s why I highly recommend you TEST DRIVE the plugin for 60 days and see for yourself, instead of guessing. If you’re not fully thrilled and satisfied, MBP will give you your money back, no questions asked!
I already have “MBP Optin Form Adder” plugin. Do I need to deactivate this and delete to be able to use Subscribers Magnet?
Subscribers Magnet will automatically detect the “optin form adder” plugin. You can click a button to import all the settings of optin form adder and disable the optin form adder plugin.
No need to use optin form adder plugin afterward!
Will It Work With My Autoresponder?
This plugin works with the largest list of autoresponders I’ve encountered to date on any similar plugin. There’s about 12 of the major ones and it handles a ton of ones that use generic forms. It also works with Feedburner if you really must. There’s a REALLY good chance it will work just fine with yours. Got one you want to ask me about? Leave a reply! Got one I don’t have access to? Email me the form code and I’ll even test it for you, but hurry because this plugin is only on sale through October 1st.
When I did my initial testing, I was testing it with an old mailing script called Infinite Responder. Seriously that script is WAY out of date but it’s what I was using (and was responsible for making some problems I recently had with that particular mailing list.) Because it used a generic form style, Subscribers Magnet had zero issues handling it. I really don’t think we’re going to run into one that it doesn’t handle with grace, but anythings possible!
Why Do I Even Care About List Building?
Because list building today is ESSENTIAL if you want to make any cash off your blog!
If you’re blog isn’t making cash – and you want it to be – its probably because you haven’t yet been introduced to just how vital and essential list building is and how it can shift you from a hobby to a business!

How Come Your Optin Boxes Are Ugly?
Currently as of 9-29-10, I have been running the plugin with stock settings for the boxes. They will take advanced html, graphics and more. I plan to fully customize them.
It also has some editor buttons with easy to use color settings and such to insert images even if you don’t know html, very similar to how the post editor in WordPress works.
However… I wanted my test numbers to reflect REAL WORLD results. Not everyone is going to get around to customizing theirs right away. Not everyone will play with the editor to get them looking good. Good graphics will substantially improve optin rates – and I wanted to test the plugin – not the graphics! I know that my numbers will go up AGAIN when I add better graphics.
My numbers, on stock graphics, without using two of the most powerful features of this plugin – the silent subscribe and the popin/popup – during my testing phase – are incredibly realistic percentages.
In the very near future I plan to add custom graphics and style them so what you see now will change while still using the same plugin.
Are There Cheaper Alternatives?
There is not a single competing plugin that brings all these features together under one user pane in an easy to use way. This plugin is the only one in its class.
Two of the features, one of which is to put a subscribe to newsletter check-box were recently added to the main Aweber plugin so if you’re with Aweber that’s one partial alternative. (I don’t know of an alternative for GetResponse, etc).
Have I mentioned lately just how much I love Aweber? Seriously they take the cake!
MaxBlogPress also offers a free “MBP Optin Form Adder” that does the single function of helping you add the optin form to the inside of your your posts and sidebar.
Popup Domination (which I have a developer license for so see me if your a client of mine) actually has a really sexy popup form that works well, but is not integrated with the rest of the conversion solutions and only includes that popup in the price. (I may be switching my popup for the one from Popup Domination, but I don’t mind another plugin AND Subscribers Magnet is actually still very effective even when not using it’s integrated popup solution.) However, Popup Domination isn’t cheap, and while its very nice, it doesn’t do a fraction of what this Subscribers Magnet does!
For the footer popup, which I really like, there are several free and paid alternatives for, but most of the free ones are sadly pretty clunky and techy. I wasn’t willing to use them on my blog at all prior to getting Subscriber Magnet which made it a piece of cake to set up.
The Aweber plugin (free), plus MBP Optin Adder (free), plus Popup Domination (paid) is a useful intermediary stack for anyone on a very tight budget. However, it does not bring in autofill or stealth subscribe, or the ease of a single plugin integration that Subscribers Magnet does.
Oh yeah… and silent subscription… and auto form fill for previous commentators… is just damn hot… Subscribers Magnet is in a class all by itself!
So yes, there are workarounds and free alternatives, they just don’t compare. I’m generally a big fan of free but there’s not a lot I can say in this category when it comes to things of quality.
Won’t People Freak out That You Scooped Their Name and Email Information Without Them Knowing It?
Subscribers Magnet was designed carefully with that in mind and for that reason it only displays the information from someone that has previously commented on your blog. That means they know, like and trust you and your blog enough to provide you with their “contact” information in the comment form. Visitors that didn’t comment yet won’t see the fields completed with their details.
The autofill is a very powerful magnet because our eyes are naturally drawn to words we recognize – and we recognize nothing better than our own name! By auto-filling the field we help ensure that the visitors eyes will be magnetically drawn to the form.
Aren’t the Multiple Hit Points Too Frequent? Won’t the Visitors Get intimidated By Them?
The multiple hit points are not meant to fire all at once. The blog visitors will come across those hitting points one by one without ever overwhelming themselves.
For example, you can set the footer bar shown once only. You can make popin display in the 3rd visit only. Embedded comment can be made to show only when the visitor make his/her second comment .. and so on .. and so on..
They have taken a great care while designing this plugin to make sure that it don’t hamper the user experience while at the same time make sure to dramatically increase the subscribers number of the blogger.
Also, there’s an accompanied guide called:
“Multiple Hit Strategy For Rapid List Building Using MaxBlogPress Subscribers Magnet”.
It will guide you step by step for properly configuring all the hitting points for best user experience and maximum subscription rate.
In my experience used without the popin (which is not part of the multiple hit strategy and was not part of my result numbers), and used as directed, this plugin is incredibly unobtrusive while definitely continuing to offer the reader a number of way’s to subscribe. Adding the popin (popup) will improve your results (as all popups do) for conversion but carries a much higher odds of annoying the visitor. Popups are tricky business!
How Sure Are You It Will Work?
Your results are guaranteed – You WILL double your optins using their multiple hit strategy with Subscribers Magnet or they will refund 100% of your money! How’s THAT for a guarantee!
Plus, if you would for some reason get stuck along the way and want to ask a question, if you purchased from me you can always drop me an email! It’s that simple!

Is It Really Only Available Through October 1st?
If you want it at 30% off the list price it is! After October first you will have missed the awesome 30% discount!
Subscribers Magnet was available for sale a couple months ago and I was so wrapped up in my relationship mess that I didn’t get to tell you about it! In fact I got a bunch of free traffic out of it because they featured me in their newsletter! Several in the community looked at it and waited too long and missed it last time and really were upset it went off the market for so long. Pawan works hard to be able to SUPPORT everyone that purchases Subscribers Magnet. When you buy this you can be sure that their help desk will get any possible hiccup you might have straightened out! I love companies with good support and MaxBlogPress is one!
I hope that answers all your questions!
If you are sick and tired of not getting optimum list conversion and want to get the maximum from your blog’s real estate by placing your opt-in form in strategic, non-intrusive locations, where anybody can see it…
