OptinMonster

OptinMonster is a perfect tool for companies that want to convert website visitors that leave without providing any information. Having more email addresses gives you more prospects to sell your products and services. You can use OptinMonster campaigns to generate leads on blog pages that normally lack a call to action, or use them to capture abandoning visitors on important product or service pages. It is generally a pop-up software, so it can't necessarily replace any plugin or software that handles web forms.

Privy is a great software for anyone who wants to turn their visitors into a relationship. Here's the deal: Websites can convert from 1-4% (great ones can convert at 10%), and landing pages can convert up to 30% (great ones can convert higher). What happens to that other 70-99%? That's what email capture is for. It's vital for every site, business, and store owner to provide an offer and collect email information... So that you can develop the relationship through email marketing. Privy is well suited to users at many different levels because of its flexibility and customization ability. I rarely say "everyone" should be doing a particular thing or another...Marketing plans usually mandate tailor-based solutions for specific problems... But in this case, it's hard to imagine anyone who wouldn't be able to use this software. Though, those who are driving paid traffic to their site and a strong offer will see greater conversion. Those who have no offer, a poor offer, bad branding, and low traffic may see a poor result using this software...

Cons

OptinMonster

  • Analytics is probably the area for the biggest improvement. Other than showing how the number of visitors, number of conversions, and conversion rate, there isn't much else to the native analytics. It would be nice to see campaign metrics side by side. Otherwise, you have to view one campaign at a time. In the history of conversions graph, it doesn't overlay website traffic or show how the conversion rate has changed over time.
  • The only other area that may use improvement is their capable integrations. There are a few that are not provided, such as Kartra and Salesforce.

  • Their A/B test option needs a little improvement - It can be hard to find where the second design is so that you can edit it.
  • Their embeddable forms need greater flexibility - To be GDPR compliant, you need the ability to give granular user options and provide a few checkboxes. Our team has to use other embed options or create custom HTML for our Euro users.
  • Social support group - Right now the software doesn't have a social group. They have a slack channel for partners but they don't have a social group for users. (common for most software these days to connect users to one another).

  • Flexible options: The software allows so many different kinds of opt-in form solutions: Full-page, pop-up, bar at the top of the page, embedded, etc.
  • Easy UX: This software is easy to use for just about anyone on my team. It's easy to implement and work with. Design, form field determination, and integration is all relatively very easy to perform.
  • Great support: We've had in-person calls with their support team, and they've been answer specific questions and offer relevant strategies. They've been willing to get on the phone with me and my clients to help us solve problems.
  • Multiple integrations - No matter what CRM you're using, there's likely a way to integrate Privy forms into it.
  • Easy installation on sites: Just a strip of code.
  • Visible, measurable results: Tracking and data with visits, conversion events, and conversion $ tracked to the forms.

It is very well designed from both a UI and UX perspective. I've never been lost in the tool and building your rule sets is very easy—you'll have no problem hitting your target.

Super easy - Choosing the form fields - easySetting up the entire form - easy Integration with other crms - easy Designing the forms - relatively easy Measurement - very visible Support - greatThe only thing it lacks is a little more visibility in the B variations of A/B tests and the price - It's very low at first, but the more that you earn off of your pop-ups, the more that they will charge you. However, even compared to the revenue gained, this cost is not much.

They are very responsive and helpful and courteous. They solve issues quickly. Aside from their tech support staff, they have a great knowledge base and OptinMonster University which has plenty of content about how to use OptinMonster to its full potential and learn digital marketing strategies and tactics. A complete package for sure.

Alternatives Considered

OptinMonster

We used to be Justuno customers but their editor kept overwriting a small bit of HTML that we needed written in a certain way to work with a plugin on our site. I contacted their support team who tried their best to help, but their tool just couldn't make it work. When I asked OptinMonster support if my code could be used as-is they confidently said yes. We haven't looked back!

After having used quite a few email marketing platforms, I can say out of all of them we like Privy the best. Privy's integration with the BigCommerce platform makes it much easier to use than the others we tried in the past and we are happy with the results we have gotten and their excellent customer support which is superior especially to Mailchimp which can only be reached by email.

Return on Investment

OptinMonster

  • For several clients that we have implemented OptinMonster for, we have had a significant increase in leads, which keeps our clients happy and we retain the business.
  • Campaigns are quick to set up, so it saves us significant time versus having to go to a web developer to build pop-ups or web forms. We can add something that goes "on top" of the website and turn it on and off with ease or change display rules to adjust how we want to use it.

Privy

  • We have had better conversion rates on our emails.
  • We spend less time creating email marketing campaigns that look professional.
