One thing I’ve learned to do with case studies I publish is including a CTA that leads to a “Request to be Featured” form. Any customer reading or viewing a case study of ours who wants to be included fills out our brief request form, greatly reducing the tedious process of hunting for willing customers.
Email and in-product personalization will become more standard. Companies will continue to broaden their personalization strategy and will move away from sending a large and diverse user base the same generic message. Trigger-based and action oriented messaging will continue to ramp up as companies seek to increase conversions through personalization.
If that doesn’t meet your needs, you might want to consider a third-party platform, such as the JotForm platform. With more than 2.5 million users and 200 million form submissions to their credit, JotForm is a very reliable solution for today’s digital marketer.
A new integration between JotForm, the easiest way to build online forms, and BlueSnap, a trusted payment processor, gives businesses a way to collect credit card payments online.

Using a customizable online form builder like Jotform is perfect for creating ultra-specific customer service experiences. For example, perhaps you need to know multiple things about a customer before you can help them? Form builders make it easy to collect and organize this information.
When I launched JotForm in 2006, we built our own public support system. During August 2017 alone, the forum had over 150,000 unique visitors. In this article, I’ll discuss how to create and manage this growth hack, and why it’s so valuable.
Online forms are essential for any business. Contact forms, registration forms, and surveys help us to connect with our customers. And when it comes to building your own form, it doesn’t get much easier than JotForm.
A “form” is any place on your website where visitors enter information into spaces called “fields.” The donation page always has a payment form. Your website likely has email list signup forms, contact forms, event signup forms, and others.
One of the biggest reasons JotForm users wanted to receive check payments is sheer cost. Even on the low end, it costs a merchant a 2.7% fee for every credit card payment they receive.
Jotform’s success with video doesn’t stop with how-to videos. They’ve had great success with Jotform Case Stories as well by focusing on the ways professionals in different industries have used Jotform to drive their own success. Integrating video marketing into their content strategy has given Jotform an edge against the competition.
“Communication is equally critical for the two-person company as it is for the 3,000-person corporation,” explains Chad Reid, Director of Communications at JotForm.
Organizations using JotForm may now opt to collect payments via electronic checks, an approach that many merchants migrated away from because of the risk of delayed funds and fees from checks returned for nonsufficient funds.
You won’t realize how helpful online forms are until you start using them—and there’s no better way to collect and manage important information than with JotForm.
Over the past year and a half, JotForm has adopted a much more robust video strategy, and it’s been great. What we’ve had the most success with is developing user case study videos.
From permissions slips to quizzes, the team at JotForm has updated their collaborative form builder tool to make sure you’re covered.
JotForm is a very dynamic company eager to innovate and that constantly brings new features to its users. In the spring of 2017, they launched JotForm 4.0, which was a reimagined version of their traditional form builder, allowing users to create forms using any device.
Effective communication between sales and marketing is imperative as the teams should help each other at a regular pace, not just when necessary. Updates should be frequent, and clear communication should be part of the culture of an effective sales-marketing partnership.
JotForm is the gold standard for creation of forms whether on PCs, Macs, or mobile devices. It can be used to sign up volunteers, get feedback on events, enroll people into classes, ask for donations, or collect payments.
Chad Reid, director of communications for online form building platform JotForm, explains that, “In this day of automation, make sure your organization uses a software that can take information about a donor or member, and automatically distribute the information to spreadsheets, email marketing services, collaboration tools, CRMs and cloud storage softwares.”

Remote offices and employees need to be actively managed from a different office. Small remote office do not work well in a silo. They need to be connected to the “mothership” and entire organization with structured expectations, meetings and check-ins, and every employee needs to produce accordingly.
JotForm recently announced, for example, an integration with First Data Payeezy, an online payment processor, that will allow anyone to accept payments and donations via an online forms.
Employees can either be emailed an online form to fill out on their own, or a company tablet can be used where everyone will submit their form by a certain date. Access to anonymously giving feedback can be important in situations where employees don’t feel comfortable speaking to HR, or if no official HR department is in place. After all, it is the company’s responsibility to provide a safe place for employees to work.
We decided to analyze data from Priceonomics customer JotForm, a company that helps vendors embed forms - including payment forms - on their websites. This data set tracks every time a potential customer loads a JotForm payment form and measures how often these potential customers submit payments (ie did they convert to purchase something).
Pricenomics and JotForm recently studied the impact of form fields on purchase conversion rates. Here’s what they discovered.

In 10-15 years, I see content marketing as becoming much more dynamic. With advancing technologies, we should be able to dynamically alter sections of content, depending on the characteristics of the lead or customer.

JotForm publishes support queries in our forum (unless a customer chooses to make the interaction private) so that other people who experience the same issue can get their questions answered sooner, as they can search the forum to find previously asked questions.

“I use Google Calendar every single day, as my personal assistant and life organizer. I like knowing what I have going on every day of the week, preferably weeks ahead of time. I even create events for myself for tasks that I need to get done, blocked for the time that I should be doing them. This helps me stay on track and get a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day, and allows me to look forward to the days ahead (as both necessary and fun activities are on the same calendar)." Leeyen Rogers, VP of Marketing
JotForm is an online form service used to generate leads, distribute surveys, collect payments and more.
For a long time now, we’ve recommended JotForm as a tool for creating powerful forms easily. While embedding a JotForm in Zoey’s Visual Design Editor was always relatively simple, we like to make things even easier, and we’re pleased to announce a JotForm block within the drag-and-drop editor.
We receive JotForm intake forms, and Stripe is integrated for the payment. That’s my little nest of tools for consultations, which has been a huge departure from how I was doing things before.

Creating original content to help draw links back to your site is a proven method to remain competitive at relative value. As Chad Reid of JotForm describes, “Since SEO is resource-intensive, a better strategy is dedicating time to crafting great site content, not necessarily an army of backlinks.”

One of my favorite perks at JotForm is that we go out to a restaurant of our choosing for a team lunch once a week. I’ve heard of catered lunches before, but it’s really nice to get out of the office, explore San Francisco a little, and find a new restaurant.

For all the talk of analyzing a website for key performance indicators and making changes based on the findings, altering even a single website element can be quite difficult for companies where requested changes - even those that are timely - are queued only to lose their effectiveness once they are made. Website Magazine caught up with online form builder JotForm to get insights into how to speed up the website change process for greater revenue opportunities.
Video is definitely one of our favoured channels for marketing. It allows us to deliver our message in a unique way that is both visual and informative for our audience. Unlike static graphics and text, people seem to be drawn to videos and more likely to stick around to hear what you have to say. That's something we've definitely found to be true for our video campaigns.
“Before you [create your survey], make sure your survey tool integrates with, or already provides, an easy way to analyze the data,” says Reid. “I like having my data sorted in spreadsheets. So I choose to have my surveys automatically populate a spreadsheet in Google Sheets so I can sort through everything as the responses come in.”

It will allow marketers to go beyond developing one-size-fits-all pieces of collateral and become much more adept at providing relevant information.
Forms can be complicated. We’re looking for what users want and how to uncomplicate those features. Our newest version is lightyears ahead of what anyone else is doing in terms of functionality. It makes form building fun.
At JotForm, we primarily look at last-touch data: where did the user sign up from? It could be organic, AdWords, social, referring websites, in-product, etc. From that source, we also look at the quality of those signups, which for us means the rates that they became active users and the rates that they became paid users.
As a marketer, I’ve used the JotForm form builder for many years. Most of my clients use it, too. If you’re unfamiliar with the software, you can use the JotForm builder to design and host highly engaging webforms.

Messaging should be personalized depending on your customer’s behaviors or profile. On a basic level, if a customer is actively using a feature, they can be excluded from any on-boarding messaging specific to that feature. Instead, use trigger-based and personalized messaging for their specific needs.
Knowing what makes for an engaged user versus a user who is likely to downgrade or churn is important in developing strategies to increase engagement and reduce churn. Creating a user profile of someone who is likely to upgrade from free is especially important for SaaS products that have a free or free trial option.

My wife and I ended up choosing JotForm. When setting out to find the right service, we had a couple of constraints in mind. First, we wanted it to be free. Second, the form needed to be able to support conditional logic, e.g., the ability to show specific fields based on the name input by the guest. This was crucial for us, as we wanted to be able to tailor the RSVP form for those guests with and without plus ones. And finally, we needed to be able to output the form submissions to Google Drive since my wife and I maintained our master guest list as a Google doc spreadsheet. JotForm meets all of these requirements (and offers a nice user experience to boot!).Read MoreJanuary, 2017
