    I am putting together a new website and a large portion of my efforts shall be going towards capturing email leads to market them clickbank products.

    I've already looked at the pros and cons of many list building services (mailchimp, aweber, etc.) but am looking for a plugin that will allow me to capture the lead but also immediately redirect the visitor to an offer. Any suggestions? Free is preferred but any ideas are welcome.

    Thanks

    Formidable is a paid wordpress plugin that does what you want and much more. Haven't been able to find a free/cracked version.

    Seems like your approach may be off a bit, but of course redirecting to an offer immediately after an email signup is very doable. Most of the major platforms have a section where you input the "destination" landing page, or the redirect after an email is submitted. I can't see why you would want to add more work by using a plugin instead of simply using whichever lead capture program you are already using.

    The biggest problem with this approach though is that it seems to target a sale immediately after an email signup. The general course of action in email marketing is freebie -> signup -> provide value and information -> Get sales. By removing the steps or altering the funnel you are putting a lot of stock in your own influence. Most marketers would try to either get an email signup, or a sale at any given stage of their funnel. By trying to get both you are ultimately going to lose sales, and credibility. Of course - some people make this approach work OK, so as long as you have great sales copy, and are appropriately building value with your list subscribers you may find this method can work.

    Don't make it harder than it is though -> You can already redirect traffic after a signup using any of the major lead capture providers including Aweber, constant contact, etc... -> Just look for whatever field they provider that says "final landing page," "destination url," "redirect," or some variation of that. Good luck!
