Your email list can't be shut down - the algorithms can't stop your emails from being delivered (so long as you email valuable content!), and while some people use Facebook and some use Pinterest... EVERYONE uses email.

So you're working frantically to build your email list, right? Great! I hope you're using one of these tools...

Thrive Leads vs Elementor Pro Popups

Elementor Pro has recently released a major update to their plugin which allows you to build custom-designed pop ups and display them anywhere on your website using a very easy and slick engine.

  • I wanted to let you know that this is really an informative guide for beginners like me! I have bookmarked this article and IĀ’m sure these tips will be very helpful for me.

  • Hi John,
    thanks for this comparison! I’ve been using Thrive Leads for quite some time and I’m currently testing Elementor Popups. The only thing I miss in Elementor are the reports. Otherwise it is easier to handle and the page speed is better than with Thrive.
