Using a value rule to restrict the data you collect

Image
What is a value rule? Validation rules are used to restrict data input by specifying a criterion that all valid field values must meet. These validations work while the visitor is filling in the form, before it is submitted.
There are common field validations we all know, such as an “email validation”. In this validation the email field is checked and an error message is given if the format of the email address is not correct. In addition, there are custom field validations a form owner can decide to apply specifically on his form in order to collect a certain kind of data.

What is a CTA? CTA is an acronym for “call to action”. It is a term used in marketing as an instruction to provoke a response. It usually includes a verb to make an active sentence. like: “call us now” or “find out more”. In web forms, a CTA is used as a banner, button or promoting text that tries to get the user to submit your form. Converting him into a lead and later into a customer.
Because you may have lots of visitors on your page, but if you can’t convert them into customers it doesn’t mean anything. It is up to you to let your visitors know what it is you want them to do. It is up to you to convince them.

A/B testing and the presidential campaignWhy what works so well for an online form won't work when it
comes to choosing a president?

A/B testing is a great thing.  It lets you compare alternatives and make better decisions.  In this short post we want to demonstrate the benefits of a/b testing by comparing testing for online forms with using a/b testing for choosing the best candidate in a political campaign.   As you can imagine, it won’t be so simple for the latter.

A/B testing background A/B testing is a simple way to compare two things in order to find out which one of them works better.  In most scenarios, once you figure out which one is your “winner” you stick with it, and get rid of the other.  The treatment for the winner as well as the loser is probably where the similarity between running an a/b test for an online page and a presidential candidate starts and unfortunately ends.

Conversion rate optimization turns Online forms visitors to leads

Image
Do you know your goals?
From an online form perspective the answer is simple: to get the best conversion rate you can.
Conversion rate is simply the ratio between those visitors who submit a form to everyone who was exposed to it. So ideally you want every visitor to fill your form and submit it, translating into a 100% conversion rate. Unfortunately in most cases conversion rate would be a single digit number or low two digits. Most people just abandon the form within seconds after being exposed to it. This post is about the visitors who abandon, and what can you do to change their minds.

Create an online form with built-in Sentiment Analysis Using Google’s Prediction Engine

Image

However, in many cases you want to let your customer voice themselves using open text to ask a question, require something or provide feedback. The main drawback usually associated with such input is that your staff needs to manually read each and every entry.

Building and optimizing a Squeeze Page Using a professional form builder

Image
Squeeze pages have one goal - to squeeze some data from visitors. Any page where visitors land on is by definition a “Landing page”. But a squeeze page tells you more about its design: It has to leave a visitor with no other choice but to fill in the required fields in order to proceed, no other links and wayouts. Obviously some, maybe even most visitors may not like being “squeezed” and will just abandon the page. This is exactly why you must understand landing and squeeze page optimization. By optimizing your design and message you will be able to minimize the number of visitors who abandon your squeeze pages.

Are you using the simplest and most common way to test and compare two designs? Are you A/B Testing?

Image
What is A/B testing ?
A/B testing is simply a way to decide between two alternatives. A traditional A/B test system lets you specify two variations of a form. Then it divides your viewers, around the same time, into two groups of the same size. One group gets to view form ‘A’ and the other form ‘B’. When the test is done you can easily see which of the variations worked better for you.
