Old WordPress Customers Migrating to the New OptinMonster App

Old WordPress Customers Migrating to the New OptinMonster App

DEPRECATED: In May 2015, OptinMonster moved from a WordPress-only plugin (i.e.: the old plugin was deprecated), to a SaaS platform. This means OptinMonster can be used on any website, among other benefits. Read more about all the reasons we moved to a SaaS. With 4.0 updates to OptinMonster’s SaaS platform, in addition to 2 years worth of coding updates since the deprecation of the old plugin and transition to SaaS, it is now no longer technically possible to migrate.

Going forward, this means you will need to recreate your campaigns from scratch on the app. Our Getting Started Checklist for WordPress and 5.0 Builder Overview is your best place to start.

Did you know?: With OptinMonster’s Plugin, you can use our Advanced Targeting Rules to target WordPress Categories, Tags, and more. Learn how our WordPress Plugin and Display Rules work together.

OptinMonster has transformed our business. Before integrating their optins, our clients saw a 2% conversion rate from web traffic, which is slightly above the standard for their industry. With the integration of OptinMonster’s lightbox popup, exit-intent technology, split testing, and other tools, our client’s conversion rates soared by an unprecedented 500%. They attracted substantially more customers while spending less on digital advertising. Their success propelled them to the top of their markets, outperforming national chains and other medical spas with much bigger marketing budgets. Our client’s success in their market has distinguished us in our own. We are now one of the most sought-after marketing firms in the industry of aesthetic medicine. We know that the integration of OptinMonster, more than any other tool or marketing strategy, has supported this growth and achievement.

Through OptinMonster’s exit-intent popups, we have more than doubled our sales conversion rate. Best of all is the compound effect of using OptinMonster over a long period of time—more conversions mean more customers, which means more word of mouth.
