PopUp Domination Review – What’s New In 2.0?

by Sushant Risodkar · 32 comments

PopUp Domination is a new way to build email list. If you are an email list owner, the main thing you always look for is – how to increase the email list subscribers.

One of the main things in list building is how creatively you can make the person behind the computer screen share his/her information with you.

This can be done through many ways like giving away high quality product with superb graphics, quality designed squeeze pages and many other conversion techniques that will make the offer look tempting for the person.

But there is one more way through which you can increase the creativity of that page and it surely does wonders. The thing I am talking about is – PopUp.

Yes, PopUp… I know you get really angry/irritated whenever you see a popup yourself while surfing. But this PopUp is something different and it won’t annoy 99% people.


The thing I am talking about – PopUp Domination Worpdress Plugin. And they recently sent out PopUp Domination 2.0 copies for their previous buyers and it is much better and the best lightbox optin form I have ever used after spending like $80-$100 in other similar products for example Action PopUp and some other (I don’t even remember their name!).

Through this PopUp Domination Review, you will get to know everything that this cool product has to offer.

What Is PopUp Domination?

PopUp Domination is a premium wordpress plugin that presents an awesome looking PopUp on your page which tends to increase your opt-in rate by almost 300% and sometimes even higher. PopUp domination is founded by Michael Dunlop who is a well known young blogger.

What Was In PopUp Domination?

The earlier version of PopUp Domination was just for bloggers or those who had wordpress blogs. Many people jumped into its early release and are enjoying what it offers.

The earlier version of PopUp Domination offered:

  • 4 Great Looking Templates with 14 Color Combination’s & 8 Action Button Colors.
  • Compatibility with almost any autoresponder service.
  • Only 2 Options for scheduling the lightbox i.e; after how much time and after how many days it should appear.

The earlier PopUp Domination was quite good considering it was the first release. BUT people thought for something more and Michael Dunlop listened us…He released PopUp Domination 2.0 that sets this product to a new level.

I was happy to get it’s FREE upgrade as I was a previous buyer.

What’s New In PopUp Domination 2.0?

The new PopUp Domination 2.0 is not just for WordPress Blog now… You can now use PopUp Domination on any HTML website which is really great thing for many internet marketers.

The standalone version of pop up domination is nothing different but it requires a little technical skill for installing. But don’t worry; the help file gives you step-by-step way to install it on such websites.

The new PopUp Domination has many new additions like:

  • 3 more awesome templates i.e. a total of 7 templates with the same 14 Color Combination’s & 8 Action Button Colors.
  • Two new features for Mailing List behavior. The new version now gives the ability to submit the form in a new window and also enables you to disable “Name” box if you are building an email list without their names.
  • Offers new PopUp scheduling options. You can now make the PopUp appear when a user brings his mouse button close the ‘X’ sign of his browser window.
  • It now also works as an EXIT PopUp by throwing-in an alert box when the user decides to leave/close the page.
  • You can now also choose where to display the PopUp on your wordpress blog based on Categories and Pages.

All the new additions in PopUp domination 2.0 are great and are really useful in building an email list through popup.

Let’s Look Inside PopUp Domination

Installing PopUp Domination is very easy on wordpress blogs. It’s like installing a normal wordpress plugin.

Here is how the main interface of the PopUp Domination 2.0 wordpress plugin looks:

You can easily see above how cool the interface is and it’s also easy to understand.

The tabs use javascript functionality for easy access and thus it saves your time.

Here is what every tab on that interface has to offer:

  • Look and Feel – This is the very first tab you will see and it’s the very important part of it. From this tab, you will be able to choose from 7 various templates to use on your blog with various color combination and action buttons colors. All the templates are different in sizes and are different in terms of design.
  • Mailing List HTML – In this tab, you will be able to add your autoresponder code. Just paste your code that your autorespodner gives and PopUp Domination will handle the rest. It’s compatible with almost any autoresponder service.
  • Template Fields – Here you will able to add/edit the text in your template like Heading, Text for Action Button, Sub Heading, and Paragraph etc. It’s different for every template.
  • List Points – This will help you add text as a list which will increase conversion in a creative manner.
  • Schedule – From this tab, you can set various scheduling options for the PopUp lightbox form like time interval, when it should appear, where it should appear.
  • Preview – See how your PopUp will look like before making it LIVE on your blog.
  • Promote – Simply lets your promote this wonderful product by placing a small “Powered by PopUp Domination” text with your affiliate link.
  • Advanced – This tab is for those who know working with css. You can edit css of your template to make it appear the way you want by just adding/editing the css file from this tab.

Here’s How My PopUp Looks Like:

What Makes PopUp Domination Different From Others?

As I told you at the starting that I have tried some other lightbox form plugins in past by paying for it and I feel that PopUp Domination should have been released earlier after comparing it with those product.

Here is what I feel makes PopUp Domination Stand Out from other lightbox form in the industry:

  • PopUp Domination doesn’t need expertise in designing. Awesome templates are already built-in which makes it stand out from other similar products.
  • PopUp Domination is very easy to install on blog. It is compatible with almost every wordpress theme. My earlier purchase of similar lightbox form was not compatible with the ultimate blogging theme and hence I had to perform some code checking to make it work at that time.
  • Helps you REALLY boost your opt-in list. My previous lightbox form didn’t worked out well which I think was mainly due to it’s lack of designing plus compatibility. PopUp Domination makes your popup form highly attractive and engaging.

What I am Looking For In PopUp Domination 3.0?

Hmm..PopUp Domination 2.0 is already so good that it’s hard to make more wishes. But still, after looking deep, here’s what I feel should be brought-in for PopUp Domination 3.0:

  • Ability to quickly change the font size of various text. Currently, it can be done only by changing the css file.
  • Could be utilized as a way to increase feedburner subscribers. It would be great for those who don’t use an autoresponder service.
  • If possible without much load on the servers and slowing the site; “effects” can be included for the appearance of lightbox form like moving from right to the center or paintdrop effect or scrolling from top/bottom etc.
  • Umm..What More?? I am out of ideas because it’s a complete product 😀

Seriously, at the moment I can’t think more than this as it fulfills all the needs of a light box form. But still those were my suggestions regarding PopUp Domination 3.0!

How Much Does PopUp Domination 2.0 Cost & My Final Verdict

You will be amazed to know that the New PopUp Domination 2.0 comes for the same price like the earlier version. That is there had been 0% increase in the price but 100% increase in the quality. 😀

Let’s look again on what you are getting with PopUp Domination 2.0:

Great review Sushant! I’ve been seeing a lot of reviews about popup domination lately, even on Kristi’s (kikolani) new blog, she made a comprehensive review about this plugin as well. I’m not yet starting with my own email marketing campaign, but I’m getting closer to it, so I guess I’ll have this plugin installed any time soon.

I’m using Pop up Domination on several of my blogs and love it! I knew when I saw it here that is exactly what it was. Only issue I’m having is that I cannot figure out how to turn off the “powered by pop up domination” at the bottom of the lightbox and I see it’s not on yours, so I’m going to figure out how to turn it off now.

I just purchased PUD today and I’m having one problem (although it’s kind of a big one)… wonder if you know how to solve it. In the version seen on the video, when you get to the HTML section, you just click on the autoresponder service you’re using and it automatically populates the box with all of the HTML code.

On the version I have, it doesn’t do that. I had to ask our mail service (Constant Contact) and it didn’t give me the proper code. Once people fill in the Name & EMail address box on the PUD Lightbox, it then takes the reader to another page and you have to join the email list AGAIN. Plus, it takes you away from the blog.

Any idea how to get the proper code, and prevent people from leaving the blog?

Hi Karen, I would try to answer your questions as accurately as possible though I think the real support team will be able help you better.

1. In version 2.0, there is a small box in the “Mailing List HTML” tab that says “Submit the form to a new window”. Make sure it is not ticked if you don’t want people to go onto new window and see your autoresponder confirmation message. So this way the second problem you mentioned is solved.

2. About your first problem. You will need to copy the subscription form provided in your autoreponder account to the empty box in the “Mailing List HTML” tab. Selecting the autoresponder you are using from that tab is just a part of it. It’s just to confirm which autoresponder you are using for pop up domination plugin which will help it to smartly select the first name and email address field from the whole subscription form code of yours. Since every person’s subscription form is different, pud doesn’t does anything like “you select your autoreponder company and it is ready to work”. Again: You will need the subscription form code that you can copy by logging into your account and selecting the respected email list and then paste it in the empty box.

I hope this would solve your problem. Do let me know. For further assistance, you can contact the pop up domination support desk.

Excellent write up. Although I still prefer to stick with options provided with my aweber account, this looks very interesting

Rodger January 14, 2011 at 8:10 pm

Typhoon, It might be pretty, but I think Popups annoy readers all the time. It doesn’t matter how nice it looks. Most readers do not like it right in their face.

Debbi February 15, 2011 at 8:27 pm

It is toooo bad that it does not work as a stand alone in IE. It breaks up… what good it it when you can’t use it except in a WordPress Blog.

Jannah March 31, 2011 at 5:01 am

I’ve had some trouble with Popup Domination not closing in either IE or Firefox. When the lightbox pops up on the screen, even if you click on the x in the corner you can’t get rid of it.
Any idea how to fix this?

Martin Russell May 22, 2011 at 5:44 pm

Seems like you are not using PopUp Domination on this site now.
