Hi folks, what I'm going to show is how to install and configure these two plugins so we can get those email marketing and lead capture campaigns running!

I will be doing a step by step tutorial with screenshots and description of what I'm doing.

These two plugins are free, clean and simple to install.

Let's get on with it.

1º Go to your dashboard, mouse over on "plugins" then "add new"

2º Type icegram on search bar (they will appear side by side) if not don't wory to much because Icegram will suggest you to install rainmaker plugin anyway.

3º Install and activate both Icegram and Rainmaker

Does icegram have the same role as mailchimp?

No,

Icegram is used to engage you visitors with messages and or forms.
Ex: subscribe forms (integrated with MailChimp) or leaving intent message to give them final offers

Mailchimp is an email marketing software that allows you to customize and automatize email messages.

Beware MailChimp don't allow "make money online" email marketing campaigns, so read carefully their rules.

Cheers

Hi,
As stated by Google, not all pop-ups and overlays will be penalized in Google’s new rankings.

Pop-ups needed to meet a legal requirement — like verifying someone’s age — are still okay, as are smaller banners at the top of a screen like cookies policy messages.

There is not a Google’s defined formula, “Banners that use a reasonable amount of screen space and are easily dismissible.” are ok!

Is there a way to use Icegram without rainmaker? I had looked into these a while ago but didn't understand if you could use only one and not the other. Also, is there a way to get it to send out a free e-book once someone subscribes?

Hi Tanja
Yes you can, you must redirect people to landing pages instead using the mail form.

check the images bellow.

As for the "send out a free e-book once someone subscribes?"
You can but to do it automatically you have to use a 3rd party service. Such as Mailchimp.

I will post a video later how you can do that and get back to you

Ok, so if I don't have a landing page then I would need to integrate the 2?

I am using Sumo right now but like to know about what else is out there.

I switched from Mailchimp to Benchmark email because Mailchimp no longer allows any affiliate marketing. Not sure if you were aware of this.

Benchmark is really good but unfortunately they are still fairly new so many things don't integrate with them yet.

No, for instance, if you want to give someone a free ebook you could do like this.
Create a page with no links from or to your website.

Make a simple design and put a download button so people can download your ebook from that page

Only way to get to this page is by hitting that "click get a free ebook" on your pop up.

I was not aware of mailchimp policy. I just read it.

Correct if I'm wrong but if I got it right, you just can't use it for promoting WA type of business. You can use into niche sites that are not "make money at home".

Ex: if you have a cooking website you can send recipes books with your mailing list and on that recipes pdf have affiliate links for an awesome amazon oven.

They clearly state that they are against affiliate marketing but are ok with no spam affiliate links.


I'm going to check that Benchmark mail.

Not a fan of Rainmaker. They are trying to create a parallel sort of WordPress (and charge for the opportunity).

I know, still made a good WP plugin, free to use. Pretty much like having a chocolate cake with a cherry on top, I hate cherry so I remove it and still eat the cake ;)
