Whether you want to promote a specific product, service or newsletter, an optin bar can be a great way to increase signups and click throughs. As great as Divi theme is, it doesn’t come with this feature built-in which is where Divi Bars comes in handy.
In this review, we’ll take a look at the ease of use of Divi Bars plugin, go over the main features, and cover the support and pricing options.
To install the Divi Bars plugin, you’ll need to purchase it and then download the zip file onto your computer. Once you have the plugin file, go to your WordPress dashboard and navigate to Plugins > Add new.
Drag the zip file with the plugin, install it and activate it on your site. You’ll also need to enter your license key so don’t forget to copy it from your Divi Bars account area.
Once the plugin is installed, you can start using it on your site. All you have to do is go to Divi Bars > Add New, enter the name for your Divi bar, and activate the Divi Builder.
You can then use all the blocks found in the Divi builder to create your bar. This includes text, buttons, optins, countdown timers, and more.
You can also import a premade template instead of starting from scratch. Importing a template is as easy as importing any other Divi template. Simply click the arrows icon in the Divi Builder screen, navigate to the .JSON file template and import it into your Divi page.
As such, if you’re familiar with the Divi theme, Divi Bars is very easy to use and you can quickly create custom notifcations and promo bars for your site.
Now that we’ve covered the ease of use, let’s take a look at the main features of the plugin.
The Divi Bars plugin makes it easy to specify when your promo bar should appear on your site. You can choose to have it display after a timed delay or trigger it when a visitor wants to navigate away from your site. You can also have it display after a visitor has scrolled down a certain percentage on your site.
You can also set the bar to appear on certain dates. You have the option to choose a fixed start and end time or you can have it set to a recurring schedule. This means your promo bar can be set to appear every Thursday at midnight and automatically go away on Friday at midnight. This is great if you want to run a specific promotion every week.
On top of timed and delay triggers, you can choose whether the notification or promo bar will show on your site. It can be shown on all pages or only on specific pages. You can also choose between top or bottom position.
The plugin allows you to customize each aspect of your notification bar, down to the close button. What’s more, you can create several promo bars and set them to display on different pages. This allows you to create targeted promotion messages based on the page the visitor is viewing which can increase your conversion rate.
The Divi Bars plugin integrates with a total of 20 email service providers. This includes major email service providers such as MailChimp, ConvertKit, ActiveCampaign, Aweber, InfusionSoft, MailerLite, MailPoet, and others. The integration is possible through the Divi Email Optin module so you can easily create a bar to promote your latest lead magnet.
One of the great things about the Divi Bars plugin is that it comes with a number of premade templates. You can find templates for a countdown bar, Divi 3 notification bar, GDPR notification bars, subscribe layouts, and more.
Currently, there are 15 premade templates which is a bit on the low side and some of the templates are not incredibly unique. However, the premade templates are still a great starting point and a nice way to save some time designing your promo or notification bar.
As mentioned earlier, the Divi Bars plugin is easy to use and feels like it’s a part of the Divi theme so there is no steep learning curve to go through. The plugin works with Divi theme as well as with the Extra theme since Extra uses the Divi Builder plugin.
Divi Bars integrates with a total of 20 most popular email service providers which means you should have no problems connecting your promo bar to your email service provider.
This makes the Divi Bars plugin a reliable and affordable plugin to use with the Divi theme.
Although the plugin is easy to use, it’s worth mentioning that you can find a detailed Getting Started guide as well as a tutorial on how to use Divi Bars plugin. You can also open up a support ticket if you run into problems directly from your customer account on Divi Bars website.
Once you purchase a license for Divi Bars, you’ll get support and updates for the plugin for as long as your license is active.
The Divi Bars plugin is available in four different plans:
All plans, except for the Lifetime license, renew automatically, however, if for any reason you want to cancel your license, you can do so at any point in time.
Divi Bars is a handy plugin that makes it easy to promote any type of content on your site. You can use it to drive more webinar registrations, sell more products in your store or grow your email list. The plugin integrates well with Divi and is easy to use. Another benefit of the plugin is that you can use it to trigger the bars with exit intent and time delay features.
Divi Bars works with 20 most popular email service providers and offers a lifetime plan. However, the plugin can be glitchy at times and could use more design variations.
Overall, this plugin scored 4,5 in my review which means if you’re looking for a way to drive more attention to your promotions, give Divi Bars a try.Try Divi Bars
