Are you unsure of what to look for when comparing different lead generation tools?
Don’t worry – we’ve got your back!
In this simple guide, we’ve included the most important things you need to know when choosing your next lead generation tool, such as tools, features, customer service, and a few other, to make it easier for you to compare Sleeknote and OptinMonster.
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.
2. With Sleeknote, you can customize every single element of your lead capture form
OptinMonster’s drag-n-drop editor is fine when you don’t want to customize your opt-in form down to the last detail.
But if you do – which we strongly encourage – you need a user-friendly drag-n-drop builder with an intuitive interface that lets you customize every detail.
It has never been easier to customize every single element of your opt-in forms than it is with Sleeknote.
In our drag-n-drop editor, you can edit and customize all elements of your opt-in form, such as colors, fonts, texts, images, sizes, triggers, timers, shapes, and much more.
If you think it sounds overwhelming with the many possibilities – don’t worry! Our drag-n-drop editor is the most user-friendly you’ll ever see. Here is a short video on why you should consider an OptinMonster alternative.
3. Sleeknote does more than capture leads
While OptinMonster’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.
4. Smart Triggers
Another Sleeknote feature that OptinMonster 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.
5. OptinMonster Pricing vs. Sleeknote Pricing
OptinMonster and Sleeknote pricing are both based on the number of sessions you have on your website. But that’s where the similarity ends.
In Sleeknotes pricing plans, we’ve included ALL features in all plans, meaning our pricing plans are ONLY based on sessions.
OptinMonster’s plans are also based on how many features you want access to. The more you pay, the more features you get, and the less you pay the less you have access to. Features such as cart abandonment, retargeting options, campaign scheduling, and various types of forms are only available for users in their Pro plan, and not for Basic and Plus users.
OptinMonster’s pricing is also based on how many domains you want to use, while you with Sleeknote can use our tool on as many domains as you’d like no matter what plan you’re on.
Sleeknote is a simple tool to collect leads on your website. The system is extremely flexible, and at Sleeknote the service level is high. Moreover, Sleeknote makes it easy to implement and build campaigns.Morten Storm Lind
Today 17% of our total subscription database come from Sleeknote. Before we started using Sleeknote our subscription database grew with 1-3% per month, but after we started using Sleeknote the growth has been around 6-7%.Jacob Fusager
6. Better targeting with Sleeknote’s rule-engine
Sleeknote has the leading exit-intent technology on the market, and we are continuously developing our targeting technology to ensure that you get the best technology.
OptinMonster has page-level targeting and exit-intent, but why stop there?
The more specific your targeting is, the more visitors you can convert.
In Sleeknote’s rule-engine you can set different conditions, and exclude or include specific visitor segments based on these conditions. Examples could be segments such as visitors who have followed a specific URL path, visitors from specific referrals, visitors from specific UTM campaigns, etc.
There are many different conditions to choose from to make your campaigns much more personalized.
Use your already installed cookies to target your visitors.
Another great feature of our rule-engine that OptinMonster doesn’t have is advanced cookie settings.
You can, for example, exclude existing subscribers from seeing a signup form, and instead, show them an opt-in form with other relevant and exciting content.
You just copy paste your cookie into a condition of our rule-engine, and you’re ready to go.
7. Convert without worrying about bounce rate
Many think that their website’s bounce rate will increase if they use popups or other opt-in forms on their website.
We understand why they might think this, and we want you to know that you can easily use Sleeknote opt-in forms on your site without worrying about your bounce rate.
We have proven beyond any doubt that our opt-in forms have no negative effect on your bounce rate. In many cases, they have even proven to decrease bounce rates.
8. The best customer service
At Sleeknote, we have the drive and the passion for helping you get the most out of your opt-in forms.

9. Avoid Google Punishment – Mobile specific Sleeknotes
You don’t what to spend time creating an OptinMonster 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.
OptinMonster has mobile optimized forms, but they don’t have a mobile editor to customize mobile forms and they only offer mobile forms for users in their Pro plan, excluding all other users from converting mobile users.
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 and no matter what pricing plan you have. 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.
