30 Jul Using Contact Forms On Your Website
Now that everyone (well of course not probably everyone) has email on their phone, why do you still need a form on your website when they could just email you directly?
A form is great for both the sender and receiver. It eliminates the sender having to recall or retype your email address which sometimes leads to human error. The receiver is also guaranteed of receiving all of the information from required fields populated. The fields can be specific to the type of form used such as a general enquiry, quote or something very detailed.
You get a submission, now what?
If you have used a plugin on your WordPress site such as Contact Form 7 or Gravity Forms, you will then have the ability to export the data. This can be populated into Excel where you can filter, sort and even import into third party platforms such as Mailchimp.
Any form on a website MUST have a captcha. Otherwise get ready for lots and lots of spam.
