OptinMonster, Bloom and Thrive Leads — when it comes to growing your email list, these three commercial plugins are the main players in the WordPress ecosystem. But which is the best? Well, unfortunately, there really isn’t a simple answer to that question.
However, if you want to know which is the best for you, then read on: By the end of this article, you’ll have all of the information you need to decide for yourself.
In today’s comparison, we’ll be looking at what these three plugins have to offer, how easy they are to use, how much they cost and what you get for your money.
