Which Mad Mimi form-type is right for me?

If your blog has a sidebar (like most blogs), you should definitely set up a Mad Mimi form and place it at the top of your sidebar. This is a quick & easy win.

Adding a Mad Mimi post box to the bottom of your blog posts is highly recommended. Readers are highly engaged after reading a post and will be more likely to opt in. For extra effectiveness, you could set up individual Mad Mimi forms with unique call to actions & text for each category. This will result in even more Mad Mimi subscribers.

The most effective way to grow your list is our Mad Mimi popup. This Mad Mimi form is a lot more agressive than sidebar widgets & post boxes so it should be used with care. The premium version of this plugin comes with some advanced settings that let you fine-tune the popup further so you can maximize conversions while not annoying your users.

Reviews

Excellent

I tried four tiny forms, which either didn’t work or were a mess. This is excellent, very easy to customize and worked in the footer widget.
This is how Plugins should be.

Works well!

No problems, easy to use and has all the options I needed. Highly recommend it.
