Translate your MailOptin campaigns with Weglot

Converting website users into subscribers through optin campaigns such as popups and banners, is one of the key ways marketers capture potential new leads. 

They can convert your traffic, build your email list and ultimately drive more sales

Growing your subscriber list means you can reach a bigger pool of potential customers and grow your business tenfold

But, if you’ve translated your website to reach a wider audience, you’ll also want to make sure you can capture leads in your new markets too.  

Within this article we’ll take a specific look at MailOptin, which works effortlessly together with Weglot – meaning your optin campaigns can be fully translated, in just minutes

Why translate your optin campaigns  

It’s a common mistake to focus solely on translating just the written content on your site. But, there are a number of other elements you’ll also want to translate to make sure you’re giving the same site experience to all your users

And this includes your popups and any call-to-actions you have on your site. 

You’ve added an optin campaign on your site for a reason, so that you can generate a higher conversion rate. 

But, if your users can’t read and signup in their own language, then there’s little hope that they’ll take any action – which means your hopes of capturing leads in your new markets will be low.

There are numerous WordPress optin campaign plugins to choose from. But, if you’re looking for a way to create well designed, effortless signup forms that integrate with most email marketing software (including MailChimp, Constant Contact etc), then MailOptin is a great place to start. 

MailOptin is an intuitive and powerful form builder, allowing you to create beautifully designed popups, call-to-actions and banners on your website that link directly to your email list.

They also have useful features such as an A/B split testing tool so you can play around with different text and positions, eliminating any guesswork around what drives your site visitors to convert. With this feature you can be sure you’re making data-driven decisions.
