Internet Marketers have been using the power of email lists to earn money over and over again from their blogs since a long time.

Free Popup Plugins:
Developed by WPMU.org, which has a collection of many different types of plugins, WordPress PopUp is a nice free plugin that lets you create fancy popups. You can also customize the appearance of the popups as per your liking by changing the pop over size, position, margins, background color and font color. The only thing is that Aweber, GetReponse and other email service integration is not easy.
FasterIM Opt-in is the most decent free popup plugin for WordPress. Though the designs are nowhere as good as that of the premium plugins, you can still create decent looking popups for your blog. The integration of the plugin is also very simple and you can integrate your aweber or getresponse code into it as well.
As the name suggests, MaxBlogPress Unblockable popup plugin allows you to create popups that cannot be blocked by your visitors. Though the plugin is free and you only need to sign up for the newsletter to download it, the popup’s design is very basic, which means you won’t get many signups at all. However there are some good options as well, such as setting the frequency of displaying the popup and choosing the color and size according to your taste. There are also three effects to choose from – Simple, Fading and Lightbox.
