There's a case to be made that the most important thing you can do with your WordPress website is build out a good email list. Even if it's not the most important thing, it's certainly in the top five. Traditionally this has been done by placing a simple signup form widget in your blog's sidebar. But that doesn't always convert very well and not all themes come with such a widget. Thus the need for list building plugins. I've collected 19 of my favorites below, check them out and let me know what you think in the comments section!

  1. Wysija. I just started using it and i’m very satisfied so far. You can start with free version (up to 2k subscribers). Above this level it’s paid.

  2. Should add Viral Optin plugin to this list, you have them sign up, then in order to get a special offer for free they have to get 3 people to sign up as well by generating a referral link for them to share to everyone. When the people click the link and sign up it tallies it up and the person waiting to get the freebie has a top bar notification above the navigation to let them see the progress. You can set it whatever you want to get them to get the special/download/gift. There’s also an option of hits or sign ups to be able to be used as well. You can check it out here http://viraloptins.com/

  3. Nice list thank you. We will try a few of these on our site that is being developed in China. http://bmfc.com We are looking for the most robust and fully featured plug-in that we would put on a subdomain, cost is not a constraint – reliability is.

  4. I just looking for wordpress newsletter for my wordpress site. Thanks for sharing. Have you got any experience with NYLON Subscription Form – WP Plugin?
