Did you know that WordPress powers around 20% of the websites in the whole world wide web? That’s why it isn’t a surprise that there are literally hundreds of WordPress opt-in plugins out there.
But what about the rest 80%, what powers them?
The rest of them are a combination of HTML websites, sites built with frameworks like Bootstrap, different CMS systems like Drupal, Joomla and Typo3, or even forum solutions like MyBB, PhpBB, vBulletin, IPB, eCommerce platforms like Magento, ZenCart, OSCommerce and others.
A huge number goes to custom CMS solutions too, since there are a lot of serious business companies that won’t (or can’t) use WordPress as their CMS for different reasons.
That’s why I have created a list of opt-in tools for all those websites that are not powered by WordPress, but they would still like to do their list building the proper way.
Take a look at all the options below and choose the one that seems the most appropriate for your business. I haven’t tried all of them, but you can see for yourself which one gives the most for the price they charge.
