Pros: OptinMonster is a great lead gen tool for exit intent, slide-in CTA, lightbox popups, etc. The user interface and building a popup took me a little while but once I got the hang of it, not so bad. Also, whenever I've had questions or needed help their support team responded very quickly.

Cons: The biggest drawback is their templates are not very customizable. You can change colors of buttons and background colors and insert your own image but the templates I tried, the platform doesn't allow you move things around to get the pixel-perfect design I want. For example, inserting an image was locked into place basically without being able to crop it if necessary or move it closer or further away from other elements. Other competing software does offer that capability.

Pros: Optin Monster is a great, low-cost alternative to capturing leads on your website. The free version has a lot of what the average startup will need. And the pro version does some incredible things like A/B testing automatically. What I like is how simple it is to set up the landing pages, opt-ins, and thank you pages. I gave it to my clients to play with, and they were up and running with the software!

Cons: I don't really have any complaints with Optin monster. It works, there's frequent updates that makes the software better, and the free version is a excellent taste for many startups. Maybe one thing I don't like is the free version has the optin monster logo... but it's a free version for a reason.

Overall: So many useful features. It's one of the few pieces of software where I use about 80-90% of it's features.

Great upside, depending on your web platform and aims

Pros: Slick, advanced technology for pop-up opt-in forms. Easy to create good-looking, smart forms with really impressive functionality. Exit intent is the most technologically impressive, but I thought the sidebar and embedded forms were the most practical. Great that it plugs into email marketing software like MailChimp and the like, avoids the need for using Zapier or a more manual workaround. The form creation menus were mostly self explanatory and straightforward.

Cons: I'm likely an anomaly, but I had trouble getting it to work consistently with the website builder I use (Strikingly). The pop-ups usually worked, but the embedded forms often didn't load. I'm still impressed with the technology, but it's worth thoroughly testing that the opt-ins work correctly on your website before committing, especially if you intend to buy one of the more expensive plans.

Overall: Impressed with the product, I can see the value it would add to higher traffic websites.
As an earlier stage venture, it was probably overspec for my needs.

Pros: OptinMonster is super easy to use and works extremely well. I've used it for 3+ years and the functionality has gotten even better since I started.

Cons: It's hard to write cons for OptinMonster. The price is right. It's simple to use. It runs really quickly. And when I have a support question, they answer it expertly and really quickly.

Pros: Templates! I loved the fact that I did not have to KNOW about design or even think about the kind of offer I would present every time. Just used my designer's branding scheme and applied it to the templates, changing the fonts or colors as necessary and bam! I had created an amazing offer upgrade with virtually no effort. This helped increase my conversions a lot (not sure how much because I don't have the numbers with me) and my e-mail list kept getting new subscribers every day. Absolutely worth the investment! The visual editor makes it easy, and the targeting options are key for conversion, as I'm able to reach the audience I want, when I want.

Cons: I was not a fan of the way google analytics grab data from these, but it's not that important at least for the use I was giving the tool. I would have loved to see more detailed reporting options and split testing features that other lead generation tools do offer. Other than that, it's a great, intuitive tool.

Pros: Optinmonster is easy to use. They have great templates, you can copy and paste HTML/CSS in. Native Google Analytics integration makes tracking a breeze, and the setting triggers is super easy.

Cons: This tool breaks more often than it should. Every A/B test I've tried to run has technical issues. I've had pop-ups trigger when they shouldn't. CSS doesn't always play nicely. If you keep it super simple, you're good to go. If you try to get fancy with development and design, you might run into some trouble.

Overall: Great tool for driving conversions. You can launch tactics FAST.

Pros: I like how easy it is to get campaigns up and running within Opt-in Monster over to our website. It never takes me more than 15 minutes to get a basic opt-in for webinar registration up and running. The reporting is also useful and is a quick way to get data on what's getting the most conversions and what isn't.

Cons: We've had a couple of issues with Marketo form integration, but overall our experience with Opt-in Monster is very positive and I would recommend it.

I have been greatly pleased with this software and would highly recommend it overall.

Pros: OptinMonster is a fantastic tool to create and publish interaction pop-ins on any website. We use it daily to attract leads on our landing pages. It's easy to use, and has a lot of features that others don't have, like exit intents, monster effects. Also, the targeting is super precise, with a lot various criterias.

I used a free version of Optin Monster and it made designing my website optin form easy.

Pros: Here are some pointers which I feel are the best considering what the tool is offering.

- Various lead forms to generate leads
- Amazing customer support
- A/B Testing
- Integrates with all the major software
- Drag & Drop builder (Best part)

Cons: The base mo plan is very basic and you won't find anything great in it. I think they can add more lead gens forms in it so that a newbie blogger or marketers can use it to take their lead generation to the next level.

Comments: Optin Monster is a pretty good, middle of the road value if you need to start capturing leads. It's a great solution for marketers lacking highly technical skills but needs to customize forms on landing pages. I think some of the pre-designed forms could be improved in looks, but other wise is a solid tool.

Pros: I actually really liked the software. Also must add that customer service is completely AMAZING!!! I am so happy they helped me.

Cons: Nothing! It was really efficient. I didn't end up using it long, just because I haven't made the time for my blog. However, once I am able to put more time aside, I will
more than likely use this again!
