Updates to Bloom Email Opt-In

Post by Dani

On April 25, 2017

Good news! Divi’s Bloom plugin is now compatible with ConvertKit for email opt-ins. I’ve had a few clients migrate from MailChimp to ConvertKit recently, so this is a welcome addition to the mix. If you have a mailer or want to collect emails from your visitors, the Bloom plugin gets it done nicely. Check it out.

From the developer:
Bloom version 1.2 was released today. This version adds 3 new email providers, bringing Bloom’s supported email provider count up 19! In addition, we have completely re-vamped the API system that Bloom uses to connection to third party providers, streamlining the system using WordPress core functions and laying the groundwork for the easy-addition of new providers in the future. This means better compatibility with more hosting accounts and a much leaner and more maintainable code base. The new system has also been extended to the Elegant Themes core framework shared by all of our products, which means we will soon be able to take advantage of all 19 email providers in more of our products. Finally, we have added a Success Action system that allows you to perform different functions when someone subscribes to your list (such as redirecting them to a new URL).

Three New Email Providers

Bloom now supports a total of 19 email providers! No matter what service you use, we want to make building your email list as easy as possible.

Today we add support for three new email providers, including ConvertKit, MailerLite and Mailster. Bloom now supports a total of 19 email providers, including all of the most popular third party services and WordPress plugins. We want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to build their list, no matter what email provider they are using. We continue to recognize email as the king of online marketing, and every business should be encouraging their users to opt-in to their newsletters!

Convertkit claims to have found a sweet-spot between power and usability. “The power of Infusionsoft, but easier to use than MailChimp” is their motto, and we have had a lot of Bloom users requesting support for their service. Converkit was built with bloggers in mind, which makes it a natural choice for WordPress users. Combined with the power of Bloom, it’s the perfect way to take your blog to the next level.

277,365 businesses, start-ups and freelancers around the world trust MailerLite, and it has been at the top of our “most requested” email providers list for some time. Now you can easily grow your MailerLite list using Bloom’s suite of opt-ins and advanced targeting methods.

Mailster is one of the most popular WordPress email plugins, allowing you to build, maintain and email your subscribers right inside your WordPress Dashboard. This makes it a more affordable solution than most SAAS providers since your hosting company handles the work.

Introducing Success Actions

Each opt-in that you create in Bloom can now have a custom success action assigned to it, such as a custom success message or URL redirect.

Success Redirect

You can now redirect users to a custom URL after they subscribe to your lists. Each opt-in that you build in Bloom can have its own success action and its own unique URL redirect. This is the perfect way to welcome users to your newsletter. It’s also a great way to distribute incentives after signup, such as free downloads or resources. Offer a “free ebook” for signing up and then redirect them right to the download page!
