The cornerstone of lead generation campaigns is the form on the page. Forms tend to be a pain in the ass to create from scratch and an even bigger pain to get them to look exactly how you want. For instance if you have a really intricately designed landing page with a specific weird shaped area for the form. I prefer form builders to build the form itself outside of the landing page and then import it later. Other specifications I need is the ability for the form to
- Log the form inputs to a database or csv file
- Custom output emails to deliver the leads in different formats
- Drag and Drop design for intricate landing pages
- Lots and lots of options
- Ability to post to 3rd party form processors
- Ability to design the form to an exact pixel height/width
There are 2 main form builder programs that i’m using right now:
CoffeeCup Form Builder – I like this app but it’s not currently my favorite. It’s cheap and it works great. It’s biggest negative has always been that the forms are in flash. This causes issues with some browsers and mobile devices. It’s a good starting point if your getting started with forms. Free demo available.
Simfatic Forms – I just found this program a few days ago. A free demo was available and I ended up buying the full version within a few minutes of trying the program. It does everything Coffeecup does and more. The forms are also NOT IN FLASH which solves the flash issue. Simfatic has TONS of options and is really easy to use. I just did a landing page with it and it made the form aspect a snap.
