If you are running an online website for your business, you need an enormous amount of visitors. Because these visitors will one day turn into paid customers.
And, to this end, a web form can play a vital role. Because using a webform builder will help you to create contact forms, rating forms and a lot more to grow your business.
Luckily, if you do have a WordPress website, you don't have to create any webforms with hard-core coding knowhow. Because there is already a plethora of web form builder plugin available in the WordPress repository.
In this tutorial, we will show you a few ways to increase returning users using weForms and get the most out of this WordPress form builder. Now, let's dive in…
1. Use Conditional Logic to Ask the Right Questions
No one loves redundant and non-personalized content. To sustain visitor traction, it's quite necessary for you to make your content precise and properly personalized.
For example, you may want to run a survey to collect reasons for the deactivation of your plugin. Now, you can use a few checkboxes for that purpose. However, there may be reasons you might miss to include in the checklist. In this case, you may use the ‘Other' option. When the user clicks on the other option a text box will open up.
And to do so, you need to use conditional logic. Here is how it works:
Hiding in such a way is also pretty useful when you want to hide or show particular fields. For example, you may want to show particular fields for male while you don't want to show them to the females.
2. Send Custom Form Notifications to the Right People
Now, if a visitor opens an account on your site, you may need to send them personalized notifications to their associated email inbox. You can not only configure this email but also can edit its content effortlessly with weForms.
