Why & How to Skip Google Forms and Use WPForms Instead?

Have you ever created any form in your WordPress site?

I am sure you have created many forms, So far…

You are investing time and money to bring people to your business website but less of them are filling forms.

It is like you are throwing your money out… Isn’t it?

Do you know what is the reason behind it? why people abandon the most important part which is filling lead generation forms?

This is what we are going to talk about in this Post.

The reason is Distraction!

Web pages contain multiple offers which distract users and take them away from the most important part, your lead generation forms.

You know when you create forms using WordPress Form builder plugins, it will look something like this…

This was the StayMeOnline Contact Forms some days ago, You can see sidebars on the right side, a search bar… Header navigation with pages link…

Don’t you think that it is distracting?

This happens because forms layout is managing by the themes you are using…

When people will come to your forms, it can be anything like a contact form(as you saw), a survey form, a guest post submission form or a lead generation form.

If they came and want to get in touch with you by filling that form, they will not able to focus because of having distractions on the page.

Because the page where form placed on, is having advertisements, links on sidebars and other offers which distract users from filling form.

For making a distraction-free form, you maybe use Google Forms… I have seen many people using Google forms on their contact pages.

I am sure you know about Google Forms very well…

Why You Should Skip Google Forms and Start Using WPForms Instead?

Here are the disadvantages of using Google Forms…

  • The design customization is very limited. Advanced users can change the design to use the tool with a greater number of purposes.
  • There are some security concerns. The user has to create a good password and protects it to increase the level of security.
  • There are certain limitations regarding the capabilities of this tool. It accepts texts up to 500 Kb; images up to 2 Mb; and for spreadsheets the limit is 256 cells or 40 sheets.
  • You will not able to use your own brand logo on Forms header.
  • You can’t customize URL to your own website.

But with WPForms you are not limited, You have tons of option to customize your Forms. Even you add custom CSS with your Forms to make that cooler.

You can add your brand logo on the header of the form page, Customize the permalink which you can’t do with Google forms.

And you can also increase the File upload size with WPForms, you can set your own size.
