Update: As of January, 2015 Hybrid Connect has been discontinued and you can no longer purchase the plugin.
In it’s place, a new plugin called Thrive Leads has been developed by Shane and his team. It takes some of the best parts of Hybrid Connect (form templates, real-time editing, split testing) and combines it with the excellent Thrive Content Builder live editor to make an even better list building plugin.
While I have not personally tried out Thrive Leads yet, my friend Josh Kotsay has posted a full detailed review of Thrive Leads over at SlickWP. I would recommend that you take a look.
In the meantime, I’ve left my original Hybrid Connect review below in its entirety.
Every marketer will tell you that building a mailing list is essential. There is really no way around it. Over time it will grow to become your most targeted traffic source which makes it an important asset for you to build up as soon as possible.
I’ve used many different popular wordpress plugins over the years to build my own mailing list. Popup Domination and Optin Skin being two of my favorites. While they are both decent products, I’ve just recently started playing with Hybrid Connect and I’ve been really blown with what you can do with it.
