We are using Optimonk for over a year now and it really helps to drive more leads from our traffic. We had a few tricky cases with the support but they were quick, on time and helped us out all the time. Thanks for that 🙂

This plugin is very easy to use. They give me a rich feature for free plan. We also can check engaged, analytics and many things with this plugin. I recommended this plugin as best pop up plugin I ever seen. I'm glad with their support to fix my problem using this plugin. It deserved to get 5 star 🙂

Easy to use form builder, no intrusive popups asking you to upgrade, you see EXACTLY what your visitors see through the builder and in your account. The Google Analytics integration is so easy to implement but their own dashboard is all you need. Each individual element in the form can be styled exactly as you need, without resorting to CSS like for most other plugins.

I've only used the plugin a little while, but it seems a lot more stable and reliable than others I have worked with.

This could be a good plugin but unfortunately, it isn't accessible so it's unusable on any site with WCAG or Section 508 requirements. Modal isn't navigable via keyboard or picked up by a screen reader once activated.
