In this video I take you through 3 options for adding a newsletter subscribe form to your self-hosted WordPress site. Creating a mailing list is a smart thing to do for any blogger. Email marketing is still one of the most effective ways to sell online and people sign up for your newsletter because they want to keep in touch! Even if you are just starting out, it’s a good idea not to loose your audience so adding a newsletter subscribe form is a smart idea! 1. JetPack Subscriptions Module The easiest way to start collecting email addresses! When you publish a new blog post, your subscribers (in your “users” section of your dashboard) will be notified via email. Later, if you choose to move to MailChimp, AWeber, etc -you can easily export all your users into their web app. 2. MailPoet Newsletters If you want to do a little more with your newsletter then this is an awesome plugin that gives you a drag and drop interface to build your newsletter. Just be aware that your self-hosted server will likely have limitations on how many emails it can send. 3. MailChimp for WordPress MailChimp is one of the most popular online newsletter web apps. It lets you collect subscribers, create sophisticated newsletters from a number of templates and also delivers stats. This plugin lets you add a newsletter subscription form to your blog and the info will be automatically sent to mailchimp. Mailchimp allows you to send up to 2,0000 emails for free! Then it has monthly fee or pay as you go options that are cost-effective for bloggers.

  4. Horses adjust their bones naturally when they roll; but, if they
    are unusually stiff from a long ride or a
    kick from a fellow pasture-mate, they may not be able to “self-adjust“
    adequately. Most people, however, agree that Chiropractic treatments are a safe
    and effective means of addressing a plethora of medical conditions and states.

    In my experience, chiropractic care can be very effective in treating Repetitive Stress Injuries.
