Make More Profit with WP Contact Ninja Plugin

Many readers of John Chow dot Com have blogs of their own. There’s a good chance that your blog is powered by WordPress and that you’ve enabled comments. That’s a good thing, because comments allow your readers to engage with your content and keep your blog dynamic. But you’ve got to ask if you are leaving money on the table.

The subject of today’s review is a new WordPress plugin called WP Contact Ninja. The idea here is so simple, but it’s one that most bloggers fail to capture appropriately. Let’s have a look at what it does.

Squeezing More Profits

Think about it this way. You have many visitors to your blog who just come and go, but the ones who feel compelled to leave a comment have obviously connected with your content in some way. They’re necessarily interested.

While the comment form in WordPress does capture their IP, email address and URL, these same visitors might not ever come back. That’s why there are features like “subscribe to comments,” but not everyone wants that either. WP Contact Ninja goes about things in a slightly different way, automatically sending a follow-up email to anyone who posts a comment on your blog for the first time. This email message can then be used to “squeeze more profits out of your WordPress blog.”

An Advanced Auto-Responder

In effect, WP Contact Ninja is an auto-responder plugin for WordPress, but it comes with several additional features.

Let’s start with the basics. When someone leaves a comment for the first time on your blog, they are then automatically sent the e-mail message that you’ve pre-composed. This email can be used to simply thank them for their comment, but it can also remind them to opt into your mailing list or you can use it to promote one of your affiliate products. That’s up to you. What’s nice is that this message doesn’t have to be sent right away; you can time the auto-responder to send the email up to 24 hours after the comment has been posted.

Normally, after someone has submitted a comment to your blog, they are redirected back to the original blog post. With WP Contact Ninja, you can redirect the visitor to whatever page that you’d like. Perhaps you could set up a thank you page that contains a product link or a message to encourage signing up for your mailing list. Again, this is totally up to you, but you can see how having that follow-up e-mail sent some time later can work as a great reminder.

Sample E-Mail Received

Another interesting feature is that the email message does not need to be universal to all the comments on your blog. If you have a look at Beyond the Rhetoric, for example, you’ll notice that I have some posts that are about freelance writing, others about movies, and others still about eating out. These may not be the same kind of audience, so the same follow-up email might not be appropriate. With WP Contact Ninja, you can set different email autoresponders for different categories and tags. These customized messages can be much more targeted and effective.

Shown above is the example email message I received when I used the live demo of WP Contact Ninja. You can try that for yourself too. At the bottom of this email is a cloaked affiliate link for WP Contact Ninja. This footer link lets you passively promote the plugin and, if someone buys it through your link, you earn a 60% commission from Clickbank.

How Much Does It Cost?

If WP Contact Ninja were just a basic auto-responder, I’m not sure how much value it would really be bringing to your blog as a paid product. However, since you are able target based on categories and tags, since you are able to delay the auto-response by up to 24 hours, and since you can set up a different redirect after a comment is posted, WP Contact Ninja sounds much more compelling.

What’s great is you can get a multi-site license for just $9.97. It’s offered through Clickbank and comes with a 60-day money-back guarantee. If you’re not happy, just ask for a no-questions-asked refund.

    This is great! But does it integrate with other existing commenting solutions? Or must it be the only one active for handling comments?

    1. WPContactNinja says:

      This plugin integrates with the standard WordPress comment system only. Other solutions such as Disqus and Facebook comments are never actually adding any content to your blog so will not work with this plugin. I recommend using standard WordPress comments because it’s the only way you own the comments left on your blog and get search engine juice for those comments.

  5. Abhik says:

    Well, I have MBP Subscriber Magnet and it already has a similar feature.

    1. WPContactNinja says:

      From what I can see that plugin will actually subscribe people to your email list automatically. That’s not what this plugin does though since people who leave a comment on your blog are not necessarily asking to be subscribed to your list. We don’t want to annoy people.

      This plugin allows you to send a one-off welcome email to those who comment on your blog for the first time. By delaying the sending of that email it also makes it appear more personal. You can also (optionally) redirect people who comment to any other page on your website. The page you redirect people to can be different for every post and page on your site.

      Oh, and this plugin is also a tenth the price of the one you mentioned.

  6. Naveen says:

      Yes, encouraging comments is very important. There are several things you can actively do to get more comments from your current visitors.

      I created a free report (NO optin required) that shows you the simple changes you can make to your blog right away to help encourage your visitors to leave more comments.

      You can view that free report here:

      I hope that helps.

    This is an interesting plugin, but is the reply customizable?

    1. WP Contact Ninja says:

      It sure is. You can customize the entire content of the email. I suggest you head on over and try out the demo to see exactly how this plugin works:

    John, you have an ebook offer in the column on the right. Would WP Contact Ninja work on a website offer like this? Or does it just work on the comment section of a blog?

    I want to do something like this with a free white paper, but I can’t get a cookbook set of instructions on how.

    Thanks.

      Ann,

      WP Contact Ninja is designed to work with the standard comment form on Worpress blogs. What you are wanting to do is to create an optin form in the sidebar of your blog.

      The easiest way to do that is to use an autoresponder service such as aweber.com. It will allow you to create an optin form that you can simply paste right into the sidebar of your blog. When people subscribe through that optin form, they will then be added to your list and will receive the email(s) you have set up in your autoresponder account.

  11. I hadn’t really thought about the fact that Disqus and Facebook comments weren’t actually adding any content to your blog, I’m gonna start thinking about moving comments over to WordPress, for $10 this sounds good.

  12. Peter Galton says:

    This plugin looks very useful, and seems like it will be very good for getting better results for returning members. This is a one time payment correct?

    thanks,

    Peter!

    1. WP Contact Ninja says:

      Yes, just a ONE time payment.

  13. Chirag says:

  15. Chris David says:

    So do you have to set the comments to be automatically approved for the plugin to work?

    Wouldn’t take much to make your $10 back pretty quick.

    1. WP Contact Ninja says:

      Your comments can be set to auto approve or manual approve. It’s totally up to you. This plugin will work in both situations. The commenter will be redirected to whatever page you choose after leaving their comment however the welcome email will only be sent after you have approved their comment. So if you don’t approve their comment until 3 days later, that is when they will receive the welcome email. This is to prevent you from sending emails to people who have spammed your blog.

      To be perfectly honest though, if you make a few small changes to your blog you can totally eliminate 99.9% of all spam comments you receive so you can then confidently set your comment to auto approve (if you want).

      These free plugins will help eliminate 99.9% of all spam:
