Want a better Hellobar alternative?
We’ve gathered the most important information below from both Sleeknote and Hellobar, so you can easily compare the two.
Read on, and see what features, tools, and more you get with Sleeknote, and Hellobar.
We hope this information will make your decision a lot 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 Hellobar’s lead form builder, you can’t fully customize your forms, and they don’t offer free onboarding or best practice sessions.
2. Edit all elements of your opt-in forms
Have you ever felt limited by the Hellobar editor?
Sure, you can pick different colors, write different messages and even add an image. But are these really the only things you should be editing?
No – you should be able to edit every single element of your opt-in form so that it matches your website and product in both design and content.
The more unique and relevant your opt-in form is, the more visitors you’ll convert.
With Sleeknote, you can edit everything in your opt-in form, in our user-friendly drag-n-drop editor. Drag and drop elements exactly where you want them, and make your opt-in stand out from all of your competitors’.
3. Hellobar Pricing vs. Sleeknote Pricing
Hellobar is very cheap, but unfortunately, the quality also reflects that. The Hellobar tool is very limited and only offers basic features that won’t let you customize your form down to the last detail.
With so many competitors on the market today, you need a unique form that’s specifically designed for your website and that can trigger based on the actions of each individual visitor.
With Sleeknote, you can target your visitors based on where they came from, specific URL sequences, which page they’re on, how much of the page they’ve read, if they’ve already signed up for your newsletter, and much more.
All of these features and triggers are part of ALL Sleeknote pricing plans, so no matter how small your business is you have access to ALL features and triggers, and you can create as many forms as you want for as many domains as you want.
Sleeknote pricing plans are only based on the amount of sessions you have on your website, which makes it easy to see what plan you need.
4. Sleeknote does more than capture leads
While Hellobar’s tool lets you create simple bars, 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 required.
5. Smart Triggers
Another Sleeknote feature that Hellobar, 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.
6. Target your visitors with rule-engine
With Hellobar you get very limited targeting options.
The reason you should want more specific targeting, is that your visitors respond much better to personalized content, than they would to a random message.
With our rule-engine you decide exactly who of your visitors see which opt-in forms.
You can set different conditions in our rule-engine and decide whether or not to exclude this visitor segment from your opt-in form.
Use your own cookies from your website, and add them to the rule-engine. This way you can exclude existing subscribers from seeing your sign up form, and instead show them another relevant opt-in form.
Your visitors will be much more likely to sign up, when they feel that the message is relevant to them.
7. Avoid Google blocking your mobile opt-in forms
You don’t what to spend time creating a Hellobar 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.
Hellobar doesn’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.
8. World class customer service
Communication is key in every successful relationship.
We value our relationship with our customers, and we always want them to be able to contact us and talk to an actual human being.
With Hellobar, you get no personalized customer support. They don’t have a customer success team, ready to answer any questions you might have, or help you when you’re experiencing problems.
You can enter their website and pick from a number of different themes and subjects and sometimes find an answer to your question there.
It’s not optimal, and you know it.
At Sleeknote, you can always get in touch with us if you have any questions, and we are more than happy to assist you in creating your opt-in forms.
We also offer best practice meetings to everyone who would like to learn more about list building. Everyone can book a meeting – you don’t have to be a customer – and we will happily share our best tips, tricks and hacks to help you grow your email list. And the best part is that it’s FREE!
9. Explore the many possibilities of Sleeknote
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.
