Never miss another potential lead again. With this plugin, you now have the ability to add a simple checkbox and message to the end of your comment forms to allow your users to subscribe to a MailChimp list when commenting.
The plugin integrates seamlessly with the MailChimp API to register the name and email of your commenters into an email list of your choosing. By using the double optin method for capturing these email addresses, you can rest assured you are getting the best qualified leads for your growing email list.
