OptinMonster (lead generation tool), WPForms (drag & drop WordPress form builder) and MonsterInsights (Google Analytics plugin for WordPress) are three separate divisions of the same team headed by Syed Balkhi. For operating a WordPress site, OptinMonster should help capture new subscribers complementing email marketing and other internet marketing endeavors.

The same goes for WPForms wherein you leverage forms not only to get new leads but also serve customers with a better tool to interact. These forms can be integrated with Paypal/Stripe making it easier to raise subscriptions/donations. From accepting CV of candidates (making use of customized fields in the form together with file upload feature for uploading CV already prepared in Word/PDF format) willing to join your company to a customized form for booking hotel rooms, a lot can be done with well thoughtout forms. With no technical or coding knowledge needed, WPForms are mobile friendly. Use their pre-built form templates to save time so that you never start from scratch again. Here is a full list of features that includes spam protection, instant form notification, and so-called Smart Conditional Logic: WPForms – WordPress Contact Form Plugin.
Once you are logged into your WordPress admin panel, MonsterInsights with its dashboard eliminates the need to once again login to Google Analytics for understanding what is going inside your WordPress site from visitors’ perspective. While Google Analytics dashboard sucks (complaint of many users), MonsterInsights is user-friendly giving the stats that matter. Here is the list of features that you get with MonsterInsights: MonsterInsights Features & Addons.
