Keep reading and learn why you should make the switch….
Are you thinking about switching to Sleeknote or another Gleam alternative, but don’t know which to chose?
It can be very difficult to compare the different alternatives to Gleam, but we’ve tried to make the decision easy for you.
In the following, we’ve put together some information that should help you compare Sleeknote and Gleam. These include tools, features, customer service, and more.
We hope this makes your decision much easier.
1. Sleeknote puts emphasis on unlimited
When we say unlimited, we mean unlimited.
- unlimited amount of sleeknotes
- on an unlimited amount of domains
- unlimited super users
- unlimited sub users
- and unlimited customer service
At Sleeknote, we believe that the level of service you’re entitled to shouldn’t depend on your business size, or how much money you spend with us. Our customer success team is ALWAYS ready to answer any questions you might have, and help you get started, or fix your problems—and quickly.
Creating lead forms has to be fun, easy and most importantly, it has to work. That’s why we offer the most customizable lead form software on the market with the most user-friendly and intuitive system. We also offer free best practice sessions with our conversion rate experts to help you create the most effective lead form for your site specifically, so you can get more leads and sales.
With Gleam’s lead form builder, you can’t fully customize your forms, and they don’t offer free onboarding or best practice sessions.
2. With Sleeknote, you can customize every single element of your lead capture form
Tired of using an editor that doesn’t really let you edit much?
When you create a Gleam opt-in form, you have many different templates to choose from, but very limited editing possibilities.
Gleam offers you customizable opt-in forms but in our world (and surely yours too) customizable means that you can customize it down to the last detail. And with Gleam that isn’t the case.
With a Gleam alternative like Sleeknote, you have complete creative control of your opt-in forms, with our intuitive drag-n-drop builder where you can edit every single element of your opt-in forms.
3. Gleam Pricing vs. Sleeknote Pricing
Gleam and Sleeknote pricing are very different.
Gleam charge their monthly fee per site, which means if you want to use their forms on two websites, you pay double, and so on. Thus, the more domains you want to use the more you have to pay.
With a Gleam alternative like Sleeknote, you get unlimited domains in ALL our pricing plans, so you don’t have to limit yourself depending on which plan you’re on.
Gleam’s plans are also based on how many features you want access to. The more you pay, the more features you get, and vice versa the less you pay the less you have access to.
In Sleeknotes pricing plans, we’ve included ALL features in all plans, meaning our pricing plans are ONLY based on sessions.
4. Smart Triggers
Another Sleeknote feature that Gleam, doesn’t have is Smart Triggers.
Based on more than five billion sessions (that’s not a typo), we’ve developed an algorithm that continuously tests different triggers based on our best practice to find the ideal trigger with the highest conversion rate specifically for your website.
When the feature is enabled, the algorithm will automatically keep testing what works best specifically for your visitors and automatically make sure your sleeknote has the highest-converting trigger at all times. This means that every time a trigger is found to outperform the others, this trigger is used until another trigger outperforms it, and so on.
And now to the really “smart” part of the feature: The longer Smart Triggers is activated, the more intelligent it becomes. This is due to the fact that it will base its tests on a constantly increasing amount of data.
It’s also important to emphasize that the feature will never be too aggressive and hurt the user experience on your site. On the contrary—it will keep adjusting its choice of trigger to your website, its design, your visitors, and more.
5. Better targeting with Sleeknote’s rule-engine
The days of Gleam’s exit-intent and page-level targeting are long gone!
At Sleeknote, we want to keep developing and improving our products, because we want our customers to have the best tools available.
Our exit-intent technology far exceeds that of Gleam, and it is one of the leading exit-intent technologies on the market.
But we don’t want to stop there.
We have created an advanced rule engine that enables you to target specific visitor segments based on a variety of conditions, such as: visitors who have already seen your opt-in a number of times, new visitors, visitors who have followed a specific URL path, visitors from specific referrals, visitors from specific UTM campaigns, etc.
You can even exclude or include your visitors from seeing a specific opt-in form based on your already installed cookies. Our advanced cookie settings does all the work for you – simply insert your cookie in our rule engine, and watch the magic happen.
6. Sleeknote does more than capture leads
While Gleam’s tool lets you create simple lead forms, Sleeknote lets you do much more than that.
Besides using Sleeknote for lead generation, you can also use us to guide visitors to specific pages and products, promote new arrivals, promote sales, guide visitors to the right product with size charts and other guides, get in contact with specific visitors, provide service information, and much more.
The possibilities are endless with Sleeknote, and it’s super easy to use—no coding or design skills require

8. Avoid Google blocking your mobile opt-in forms with a Gleam Alternative
You don’t what to spend time creating a Gleam opt-in form if Google is gonna block it on all mobile devices.
With Google’s rules for mobile interstitials, your opt-in forms have to meet a set of requirements to avoid being blocked.
Gleam has mobile optimized forms, but they don’t have a mobile editor to customize mobile forms.
At Sleeknote, we know the importance of having full control over the forms you put on your site no matter what device they’re activated on. That’s why we’ve built a mobile editor for your mobile opt-in forms, to ensure that your mobile forms won’t be blocked by Google.
Now you can fully customize your mobile opt-in forms individually, and know that your mobile visitors will all get a chance to convert into leads and customers without hurting their user experience.
9. There’s more to lead generation than popups
Gleam has many different templates where you can choose what the purpose of your opt-in form is, but no matter what template you choose, it will display as a popup on your visitors’ screen.
We all know that popups work, but what if you could do even more than just use popups?
Well, now you can!
With Sleeknote, you can also use slide-ins, which are less intrusive than popups, and work just as well. We even invented a teaser that you can add to your slide-ins. This way your visitor can always reopen a closed slide-in, and they don’t miss out on the amazing content of your slide-in.
Get creative and see how many things you can use your opt-in forms for!
You can create different types of opt-in forms in our intuitive drag-n-drop builder. For instance, you can try our blank box template, which is exactly what it sounds like – a blank box.
With our blank box template, you have full control over every single element that goes into your box and how it looks. That’s what we call full customization.
If you’re in a hurry, we also have a range of FREE templates to use for any purpose.
We also have goal tracking, which enables you to track how many visitors sign up through a landing page that you’ve linked to in one of your opt-in forms.
Integrates with all websites and e-commerce platforms
Sleeknote works everywhere with every CMS and e-commerce platform. All you have to do is to copy paste a simple pixel/tracking code once. When you have done this, your Sleeknote will be up and running, and you do not have to do anything else.
You can easily integrate Sleeknote with your email marketing software. We have made sure that Sleeknote can be integrated with all major email marketing software so that all of your new email subscribers automatically will be sent to your email list.
