    1. OptinMonster


    OptinMonster is a useful plugin that makes it convenient for you to convert one-time visitors into permanent followers. Since 70% of the traffic on a website constitutes random visitors who probably won’t visit your website again, OptinMonster helps you turn them into the email or newsletter subscribers.

    4. Inline Related Posts
