A smart Internet Marketer will start building email list as soon as possible

How To Build Massive Mailing List With Hybrid Connect

Update: Hybrid Connect is now renamed to Thrive Leads (read more about it here).

Mailing list is one of the best marketing instrument of all time. It doesn’t matter if you are just an upcoming blogger, an affiliate marketer or working for a huge Fortune 500 company; You need a mailing list and you need it right now!

Wired UK who is the top brand in online news published an article saying that mailing list is more important that social media.

So what makes mailing list so important in today’s world?

Mailing list offers you a chance to:

  • Connect with your readers
  • Provide instant updates and notifications
  • A gateway to promote your products
  • Increase the chance of sales
  • Building authority
  • And the lists on and on …

Now, if you have yet to start one now … or at least, after reading this article 🙂

And if you are still not convinced about starting a mailing list, you definitely need to spend 5 minutes (or less) watching these slides.


The trick here is to ensure that you build a great email list and not just a random list. There’s absolutely no use building a list where you aren’t getting the right ‘return of investment’ or ROI. In short, a better mailing list means more chance of traffic, sales and even creating healthy relationship with your readers.

Anyone can build a mailing list with those free email management services but beware. These comes with some extremely tough terms and conditions like this one.

My high end requirements when it comes to building mailing list

When you sign up for an email marketing service such as AWeber, you have multiple opt-in forms which you can easily embedded on your website.

For me, these opt-in form is pretty plain. I wanted to have a better and more robust email marketing tool.


I didn’t want to paste and wait patiently for it to convert! I am fussy and I want these opt-in forms to work on various scenarios such as:

  • Something flashy that could attract the eyes
  • One button sign up and go
  • Placing easily on widget areas and anywhere I wanted
  • Pop up with specific timer

And that are the reasons why normal opt-in forms will not work. They are not flexible and versatile as what I wanted. No offence but I am very particular when it comes to my tools. I want the best and there is no spot for second.

Here’s an example of what my opt-in form looks like. I’m offering weekly newsletter and free eBook for every sign ups. Just fill up your email and hit sign up now!


Introducing, the MOST advance mailing tool … that actually works!

Hybrid Connect is one of the best marketing tool for bloggers
Hybrid Connect offers a vast variety of opt-in forms and at the same time, excellent customer support.

Hybrid Connect was recommended by one of my friend and I thought why not of trying. No harm done right?

This tool is said to be the most advance mailing tool … ever. Just like you right now, I was like “okay, seriously?” What i can virtually see is that it can be setup pretty fast, lots of templates to work with and of course, easy integration. Now, reality kicks in and Hybrid Connect is offering something I was truly looking for.

Partially ‘wow-ed’ at the moment I would say. With a 30 days money back guarantee, I knew it was a safe purchase.

Task #1: Creating lots of ‘connectors’ or opt-in forms

I consider connectors as opt-in forms for your easier understanding (I’ll explain more in the video). Creating these connectors are very easy and straightforward.

  1. Plot in the connector name
  2. Choose the type of template for your opt-in form
  3. Amend or adjust the names, titles and even sizes of the opt-in form
  4. Select if you want it to be mobile responsive (super great feature)
  5. Save and you are done!

All these, in less than 10 minutes of your time!

Task #2: Connecting your email marketing code into Hybrid Connect

Oh my! This sounds challenging right? No frust! I’m using AWeber and thus, create a random sign up form, copy the Raw HTML and paste it in the Mailing List setting.

And that’s absolutely it! Yes mate. You’re all set. Seriously! Hybrid Connect makes integration with email marketing services a piece of cake.

We (end users) can easily integrate raw HTML data with it. Just copy paste the codes into Hybrid Connect and it will do the rest for you!

Yes, you are ready to build your mailing list with Hybrid Connect and AWeber in just … 60 seconds, I would say?

Task #3: Placing them as widget areas

This is crazy easy and nothing goes easier than this. Trust me!

All you need to do is to choose the right template or sign up form that fits your taste. Hybrid Connect has well over 40 ready made templates for you to choose from. That’s not all. You can easily customize anything from text sizes to font types with ease.

No coding needed but you need one thing. A designer’s mind set!

Basically, Shane and his team made a great WordPress plugin which made building a mailing list easier than ever. I still remember pasting those HTML codes here and there on one of my niche site. It was so messy!

But with the help of marketing tools like Hybrid Connect, it is easier to manage and everything can be found in one place; the plugin’s dashboard.

Task #4: Reporting at its best

Reporting tools are very important when it comes to building a mailing list
Bad reporting tools can cause many misunderstanding and many troublesome moments for an Internet marketer

Placing your opt-in form is one thing. Knowing what’s the conversion rate is another. You need to know exactly which opt-in form is giving you the best conversion and as well as the location that gives the biggest impact. Now, this is where Hybrid Connect triumph perfectly.

Just tell me which Internet Marketer doesn’t care about conversion rate and reports.

You can basically get lots of different ‘one-button’ reporting tools such as split testing results, number of subscribers per day or any given time. Hybrid Connect’s reports are easy to read and interpret … and I would be delighted to show you in the video below.

Task #5: Split testing or A/B testing

I love this feature offered by Hybrid Connect … but why? I know a few big names in mailing list tools that offer this feature but what makes Hybrid Connect different from the rest?

It does for you automatically! Oh yes. Once you end a split testing, the plugin will prompt you which connector is the winner of the split testing. Now, it will offer you a choice to choose who and which will be the main connector to build your mailing list. Select the one that you prefer and the plugin will automatically change all of the templates in that specific connector to your choice.

This means that any other connectors are safe and this save you lots of time. Forget about manually changing them all since Hybrid Connect does it all for you!

Prepare your popcorn guys. It’s video time!

This is actually my first video and thus, do apologies if this does look newbie! Hope you enjoy watching 🙂

  1. Hi ,

    I hadn’t heard of Hybrid Connect, so thanks for this introduction.

    Afraid I found the sound too difficult to cope with on your video – there was lots of loud buzzing in the background, which obscured your voice.

    This looks interesting, but I wouldn’t be prepared to sign up for a free trial without some idea of the price – it would be helpful if you’d included information about that in the post, as cost is an issue for most of us. If the idea is you use this in addition to Aweber, that could be prohibitive, as Aweber itself is very expensive.

    Many thanks,


    1. Hi Sue,

      Thank you for your comment and yes, I got to admit, the video wasn’t that okay with the noise. Maybe I did it in a closed room and all those echo. I hope to produce better videos in the future. Really newbie in this but thank you for the patience keeping up on that 🙂

      I have updated the article with the price too! I was about to get OptinSkin but the support team over at Hybrid Connect is great. Guess Shane really took in people who are good with customer service. Haha!

      Have a great week ahead Sue.

      Talk to you soon.


  2. I’ve heard of them before Reginald but I’ll tell you what I don’t like about them. Just like the Opt-In Skins plug-in they have their name at the bottom of the boxes. I also don’t like the fact that even though they give you a lot of options on different types, sizes and looks of opt-in boxes, you still have the same ones like everyone else.

    Sure, Aweber has some of the same ones too but like Aweber, you can include your own images like I have on my blog. Both of my opt-in boxes, in the header and the side bar, were done with Aweber. As you know I had the header created for me but I did the sidebar myself and I found it really easy to create your own look if you know how.

    I would like to change some of the basic ones up like below the post but I just don’t like their name plastered on the bottom of it. Is there a way to have that removed? Just curious for future reference.

    Thanks for sharing this with us though. I know a lot of people have been using them now.


    1. Hi Adrienne,

      Thanks for the comments 🙂

      Actually one of the reason why I used a marketing tool instead of AWeber is because it uses slightly more time to pull info from AWeber than from my server (opps…speed junkie here). So yeah you get the point.

      The opt-in form on your header is great! Lovely to see that 😀 Just a quick question. Does name and email or email only gives you more signup rate?

      As for your query, you mean the AWeber words at the bottom of the sign up form? You can amend and remove that in the design template. If you want, I could give you a print shot of it … if that’s what you are asking about 🙂


      1. Hey Reginald,

        I’ve never just asked for an email address. What’s the point? I’m about building relationships so if they don’t give me their name then I just prefer they not opt-in you know? Can’t help you with that one.

        No, I’m talking about the blurb under the opt-in boxes that say “Powered by Hybrid Connect”. That’s what I don’t like because you can delete them with Aweber but I see them on these opt-in boxes which is what I don’t like. That was the question.



        1. Hi Adrienne,

          Thanks for your feedback. I got to agree with you on that (name, email etc). Good input on that. Really got to know what writers like yourself think of it.

          Oh as for the Powered by … that could easily be removed. Why is it there? Just thought of testing it for a month (as that link to an affiliate). Seeing if that works out.

          Trying different ways each month. Makes things so fun if you know what I mean 😉

          Thanks madam!


  3. Hi Reginald,

    I have just started building my mailing list and I have a plain Opt-in, I was looking for away of having fancy opt-in forms and I think that this plugin could be the best, however I am not sure if I can make the investment. Is there any free plugin that you used and recommend, I know that it will not be as sophisticated and flexible as hybrid connect.

    1. Hi Qasim,

      Thanks for the comment! When it comes to free newsletter, I have tested two plugins only which both are equally good. Newsletter by Stefano Lissa and Wysija Newsletters by Wsija and Ben.

      Both are great. Simplicity wise, Newsletter wins it hands down. Wysija is better for its customization and this is extremely useful when you are planning to build more than one newsletter.

      Another one is using Feedburner. This is okay but I wouldn’t say great because it doesn’t really play well with other free plugins … you know, the raw code etc.

      The downside about these free plugin is that you need to really integrate it with whatever mailing list you have. It doesn’t have much option for copy paste for codes etc. I know a few bloggers who did great with these but of course, it is time consuming to configure them. Personally did that and whew, that was crazy!

      If you are interested to try out Hybrid Connect, do drop me a line if you need help. Will try my best to help out and that’s no problem 🙂 And, I could provide you my link too! Haha 😉

      Take care mate.


      1. Hi Reginald,

        Thank you so much for your reply and for the recommendation, I did check Wysija and it seems a very interesting and flexible plugin. Would do the best right now. Don’t be afraid when I am ready for Hybrid connect I will definitely come back to use your link.

        1. Hi Qasim,

          Thanks for that and glad you find Wysija useful. I used it heavily once and it is okay but configuration wise, takes forever! Haha. But it is a good plugin consider that it is free 🙂


  4. Hi Reginald,
    I’m pretty sure that these videos won’t leave anyone indifferent. Even though there are some concerns we should consider when making the final decision, I think this strategy is definitey worth trying. Thank you very much indeed for sharing.

    1. Hi David,

      Thanks for commenting! There is (definitely) consideration made before making a purchase but certainly, I do hope that the video give share some light on the matter 🙂

      Moreover with a 30 days money back guarantee, it is worth it. I even tried to ask for a refund to make sure it is legit (and yes, it does) 😉

      Take care.


  5. Well said. Mailing list is a very important tool of spreading business online. Its offer great marketing opportunities too. Thanks for the sharing, the way to generate more and more mailing list. 🙂

    1. Hi Kumar,

      Thanks for dropping by. Glad you find this useful. Building mailing list is super important nowadays and yes, you got to start it immediately!

      Good luck!


  6. Hi bro,
    I have read and seen this plugin on a good number of blogs. I think it’s a good choice for anyone building a list. As for the video, I’ll watch it later when I get to my private PC with sound system.

    good luck to you on this bro

    1. Hi Enstine,

      Thanks for dropping by! That is my first video and the sound quality is not that good. Still got to learn more but thanks for the support mate.

      Who knows … you might buy it from me 🙂

      Have a great week ahead!


        1. Hi Enstine,

          Yes I am using camstudio. One of the best but pricey. The product is okay and I did the video in the kitchen area. So, the echo really got it … you know what I mean.

          Still trying to find a spot to get it done in my house. Neighbours doing renovation and my family are not very ‘quiet’ type. Haha! The only time to do? Early Sunday mornings.


  7. Thank you so much for your reply and for the recommendation, I did check Wysija and it seems a very interesting and flexible plugin. Would do the best right now. Don’t be afraid when I am ready for Hybrid connect I will definitely come back to use your link.

    1. Hi Hari,

      Thanks for commenting. Glad you find Wysija good for you 🙂

      I did a review on Hybrid Connect and OptinSkin recently and have a look at the link if you are interested with it 😀

      Good luck mate!
