    Exit popup is another useful method to gain more subscribers. You can also setup a offer page to give coupons and daily deals to get their email addresses.

    Split test your wording. Changing one or two words can make a big difference in converting.

    In line when applicable. Best time is where you refer to something you have in your email series that is possibly more extensive or elaborated. Works on your About page too.

    You know what interstatials are, right?
    So, when a visitor comes to your website for the first time, you show them an interstatial above the post or half the size of their screen which says if you sign_up then you would be provided with a free e_book of whatever niche you are into or whatever you are giving away.
    Now by pop up if you meant interstatials then that's cool, otherwise interstatials are less annoying and won't be blocked by the browsers like the pop ups would be by default.

    I have no experience with welcome gate but remember that all of the popups increase your bounce rate and
    lower your opportunity for conversions.
