Sleeknote Compared to HubSpot
Picking an alternative to HubSpot shouldn’t be difficult or complicated.
Therefore, we’ve compiled a list of the most important things to look for when choosing your HubSpot alternative.
We hope the list is helpful in comparing HubSpot and Sleeknote, and that your decision will be much easier to make once you’ve read it.
1. Sleeknote puts emphasis on unlimited
When we say unlimited, we mean unlimited.
- unlimited amount of SleekBoxes
- 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 HubSpot’s lead form builder, you can’t fully customize your forms, and they don’t offer free onboarding or best practice sessions.
2. Sleeknote does more than capture leads
While HubSpot’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 required.
3. Smart Triggers
Another Sleeknote feature that HubSpot 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 SleekBox 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.
4. HubSpot Pricing vs. Sleeknote Pricing
HubSpot is a free tool, but unfortunately, the quality also reflects that. The HubSpot lead form 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.
5. Better targeting with Sleeknote’s rule-engine
HubSpot has very limited targeting options, which is a shame since targeting is crucial in order to convert your visitors with the appropriate message.
With Sleeknote you have a wide array of different targeting options.
In our rule-engine you can set different conditions and then decide if you want to exclude or include specific visitor segments based on this condition.
We also have very advanced cookie settings that enable you to exclude your existing subscribers from seeing a signup form.
Add your already installed cookies to our rule engine and start making your opt-in forms more personalized.
No one wants an increased bounce rate because of opt-in forms.
Neither do we, which is why we’ve tested all opt-in forms over and over again, to make sure that you can use them on your site without worrying about your bounce rate.
We have even proven that our exit-intent forms can decrease your bounce rate!
6. The best customer service
HubSpot doesn’t offer free best practice sessions or onboarding tutorials for their lead forms.
At Sleeknote we believe that everyone should be able to learn from us.
We offer tutorials to all of our customers if they need it, and we even offer free best practice meeting to everyone (including non-customers!)
Our customer success team are experts within the field, and they are always ready to help you no matter what the problem is.
It doesn’t get any better (or cheaper) than that!
"We needed a tool to help us increase the size of our email list and gave Sleeknote a try. Now we have 35,000+ subscribers and approximately 60% of them have signed up through Sleeknote."

7. Avoid Google blocking your mobile opt-in forms
You don’t what to spend time creating a HubSpot 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.
HubSpot doesn’t have a mobile editor to customize mobile forms, but we do.
We have 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.
8. Explore the many possibilities of Sleeknote
Get creative and see how many things you can use your opt-in forms for!

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.
