They help bloggers for building email list and then marketing their contents via auto generated emails. This in turn will improve the traffic of a blog.
You can signup in any of the above free tools and implement in your blog. And one very important additional tools such tools provide for bloggers and website owners is easy creation of optin plugins/gadgets.
What is optin tools?
You must have seen features in many of blogs from where a reader can subscribe to newsletter of the blog. That is actually optin tool. Some will be floating and some will be statically positioned at sidebars or footers of blogs.
But professional bloggers’ recommendation is to have floating optin for any blogs or websites. Because it will not only double the attention received from readers when they pop up but also increase the possibility of more readers subscribing to your blog.
People who have subscribed will receive all your updates as mails. And not only that we can also keep them in our loop and send updates that were made in the past embedded in mails. This will really increase the number of people visiting a blog daily, monthly and yearly.
