So without further ado, let’s get started:

PluginOps Landing Page Builder: Features

Before we talk about the plugin’s features it’s important to note that the PluginOps Landing Page Builder is a freemium WordPress plugin.

The core plugin is available for free directly from the WordPress plugin repository but includes only the basic features. The more advanced bells and whistles are locked behind a paywall in the form of a premium extension.

So with that out of the way, here is a look at all the features that comes with the PluginOps Landing Page Builder plugin. And don’t worry as we have explicitly labelled all the features that are exclusive to the premium extension.

Key Features:

  • Visual page/layout editor with drag-and-drop support.

  • Support for custom fonts and Google fonts.

PluginOps Landing Page Builder: Pricing

As we just stated, PluginOps Landing Page Builder plugin follows a freemium pricing model. The core plugin is available for free and you can use it on as many websites as you want and for as long as you want. The plugin can be downloaded and installed straight from the WordPress plugin repository via your WordPress dashboard.

Now to unlock the premium features you will need to purchase the PluginOps Builder Extension Pack from their official website. It’s available in three licenses – Advanced, Business, and Agency.

The Advanced plan costs $48/year and gives you license to use the extension on 1 domain. The Business scales that up to 10 domains for $72/year. And finally, there’s the Agency plan which gives you the license to use the extension on unlimited domains for $120/year.

All plans are subject to a 14-day money back guarantee, so you can ask for a refund if you don’t find the product satisfactory.

PluginOps Landing Page Builder: Installation and Set-Up

The free version of the plugin is actually the core plugin so we first need to install that.

To do this, log-in to your WordPress dashboard and then navigate to Plugins > Add New and type in PluginOps Landing Page Builder in the search field. Next, click on the “Install Now” on the plugin highlighted in the image below, followed by the “Activate” button:

With the free plugin installed, you should see a new “Landing Pages by PluginOps” option in the left-hand sidebar of your WordPress dashboard. Expand it and click on the “Go Pro” section.

This lists all the premium features that are not bundled with the free plugin. Just click on the “Get All Features” button on any of the modules and it will take you to their official website from where you can purchase a premium license.

PluginOps Landing Page Builder: A Quick Walkthrough

Now that you have the plugin installed and activated, it’s time to see how you can use it to build amazing landing pages and capture more leads.

Build Landing Pages using Free Templates

To build your first landing page using the PluginOps Landing Page Builder, log-in to your WordPress dashboard, and then from the left sidebar, navigate to Landing Page by PluginOps > Add New Page > Click To Open Landing Page Editing Panel.

This is going to bring you to the following panel, where you will get to pick from the 90+ templates to start the editing process.

As you can see, all templates are divided into categories – Lead Generation, Click Through, Sales, Coming Soon, Thank You, Webinar, Home Page. Select the template that most closely suits your requirements.

For the purpose of this tutorial, we will be using the highlighted template in the above image.

After selecting the template, it will open inside the visual editor. Here you will get to tweak and edit the different elements to create a landing page specific to your needs.

Hovering your mouse over any of the elements will bring up three option panels – a row option, a column option, and a widget option.

This is because each of the elements hold a position corresponding to a row and a column, and then the contents of the element is made of widgets. In the above image, the element is made using three text widgets followed by a form builder widget (more on form builder widgets in a later section).

Now to edit a widget/section, all you need to do is hit the edit icon, and then make the necessary tweaks.

For example, to tweak a text widget, you hit the Edit Widget icon shown in the image, and then insert your custom text in the provided field.

Similarly, you can also tweak/update the default eBook image, by clicking the Edit Widget icon and then clicking the UPLOAD button as shown in the image.

This will open the WordPress Media Library from where you can pick the image to replace with the stock/default image.

Also, if you wish to delete any widget or element you can hit the delete icon. Likewise, to move the widgets you can click and hold the black direction-pad icon and simply drag and drop it to a different location.

Now, following everything we discussed, here is a redesigned look of the template with edited text, a new e-Book image, and positions of the elements swapped with one another.

With everything done, click on the Publish button located at the top-right corner of the screen, and the Landing Page will be published on your WordPress website.

Set Up Form Actions

In the above section we redesigned a landing page template that is meant to capture user leads and then provided them with a free e-book in return.

So how do we provide the e-Book for the user to download?

Well, to do that, select the Form Builder Widget and click on the Edit Widget icon. Now in the options side-menu, go to the Actions section and there you will notice a Success Action option. Click it and a drop-down menu will appear from which you need to select Redirect to URL. Now in the Redirect URL field you will need to paste the URL for the e-Book/PDF file that you want to provide to your readers.

But what’s the URL to the downloadable e-Book/PDF file?

Well, first you will need to upload the PDF file to your WordPress Media Library. There you will notice that the PDF file has a File URL.

Just copy and paste this into the aforementioned field and you’re done!

Now, when a visitor enters their email, they will be redirected to a page from where they can view the PDF file and also download it.

Add Forms With the Free Form Builder Widget

In the previous example, the form widget only captured one user detail – their email address. But what if we want to capture more information?

Well to do that, you select the Form Builder Widget and click the Edit Widget icon. Now on the options side-menu go to the Fields section and click on Add Fields to add a new field asking for additional user data.

Now to help you better understand how the Form Builder widget works, let’s delete the current one by selecting it and clicking the Delete Widget icon and then adding a new Form Builder widget.

To do this, expand the left side menu by clicking the arrow button and going to the “New Widget” section. From the list of all available widgets select the Form Builder and drag and drop it into the template. It should look something like this:

Now, we want to ask the user to provide their:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Email Address
  • Phone Number

We don’t require users to write any specific message.

So let’s remove the Message field and add the Phone Number field.

To do this, again select the Form Widget and click the Edit Widget icon.

Now press on the “Trash” icon beside the Message field to delete it.

Next, click the Add Field button to create a new custom field. Expand it and you will find a drop down menu containing all the field types. Select the Number type. Now on the Label section, type in “Phone Number”, and on the Placeholder section, type in “Enter Phone Number” to let the readers know that this field is for their phone number.

As you can see, there is also an option here to control the Field Width, add a Preset Value, and set the Field to Required or not.

Once that’s done, all we need to do now is change the “Subscribe” text on the button to “Download” and re-assign the PDF file as Form Success Action.

Here is how our updated Download Form looks:

How to View All Your Form Submissions

To view all the data you collected using the landing page, head on over to your WordPress dashboard and from the left hand sidebar go to Landing Pages by PluginOps > Form Submissions.

As you can see, there is a drop-down menu at the top of the page which lets you select the landing page whose submission data you want to see.

The following section showcases all the submissions captured by the selected landing page in reverse-chronological order.

As you can see, the first submission holds extra details like first name, last name, email, and phone number because this is collected from the updated form we created in the previous section.

The submissions below this one only hold the email addresses because although it was collected by the same landing page, it used the default form which only asked for an email address.

Now, you can easily download all the submission data in a CSV file by clicking the Download Data button. Alternatively, if you wish to delete these data, you can hit the Delete All Data button. The submissions can also be individually deleted using the “Trash” icon beside the submissions. And you can see all the captured submission input in detail by clicking the View button.

Installing the Extension Pack (Premium)

After purchasing one of the licenses you will also get to download the PluginOps Builder Extension Pack in a zip file. You will now need to upload this file to your WordPress website.

To do this, again head over to your WordPress dashboard and go to Plugins > Add new > Upload Plugin. Next click on Choose File and select the .zip file you just downloaded and click the “Install Now” button.

Once the installation is complete, click on the “Activate” button.

With both the core plugin and the extension installed and activated, you will see that the “Go Pro” tab in the “Landing Pages by PluginOps” section is now replaced with a “Activate Premium” tab.

Here you will need to enter the License Key to activate the plugin, and that’s it – you have successfully installed and set up PluginOps Landing Page Builder plugin!

Integrate with MailChimp or Other Email Marketing Services (Premium Only)

If you get the premium extension for PluginOps Landing Page Builder, you will be able to integrate it with any one of the supported email marketing services and sync all the collected submission data with it.

For the purpose of this review, we will focus on how to integrate the plugin with MailChimp.

To do this, first select the Form Builder widget whose submissions you wish to sync with your MailChimp account, and hit the Edit Widget button. Now go to the Integrations section where you will find the MailChimp option.

Under it, set Enable MailChimp to Yes and then enter the List ID and API Key.

For your MailChimp API Key, head on over to your MailChimp Account page, click on the Extras drop down menu, select API Keys, and then if your account is new, click on Create a Key.

After creating a new MailChimp API key, it should appear like this.

Copy the key and paste it inside the appropriate field in the PluginOps Form Widget.

Once done, head back over to your MailChimp account and go to Audience > Audience Dashboard, and then select Manage Audience from the drop-down menu as shown in the image.

Now, under the menu section, locate the Settings drop-down menu and select the option – Audience Name and Defaults.

This will bring you to the following screen where you will find the Audience ID which is your List ID.

Copy this code and again paste it inside the List ID section in the PluginOps Form Widget.

Once done, update the landing page and that’s it! You have successfully integrated your MailChimp account with your PluginOps Landing Page Builder. Now, every single time a user fills up a form, their submission data will be sent to your MailChimp account.

Be More Productive with Global Rows (Premium Only)

Global Rows are unique rows that you can add to multiple pages with a click of a button. And if you have to change the Global Row, you can make the edits at one place, and the changes will take effect in all the landing pages where it is applied.

To create a Global Row, just hover your mouse over a row and click on the Yellow Icon.

You will then need to add a name for the Global Row after which it will get added to your Global Rows Library.

Now, everytime you go and create/edit a new landing page, you will have these options – Add New Section, Insert Global Section, Insert Design Block. Just click on Insert Global Section and it will open the Global Row library from where you can select the required Global Row from the drop down menu and add it to the template.

Now, to edit the Global Row, just hover your mouse over the Global Row in any of the templates where it’s added and you should notice that the section gets yellow with a pop-up message – “This is a Global Row – You can edit it here.”

Click on it and you will be able to edit the Global Row. Once done, the edits will take place in all the landing pages where the Global Row is added.

You can also manage the Global Rows from your WordPress dashboard, by heading over to Landing Page by PluginOps > Global Rows.

Wrapping Up

As you can see, PluginOps Landing Page Builder is a feature-rich WordPress plugin for creating custom forms and capturing leads.

The free version is more than adequate if you are just starting out, with the main headache of manually exporting submission data. But as your business grows and you get more and more submissions, you should consider getting the premium extension as that will help you to automatically sync submission data to your email marketing service.
