Contact forms are an effective way to gain new leads that convert into sales.
Updated: Oct 7, 2022
After all, when leads voluntarily give their info, this indicates a heightened interest in purchasing from your brand. Right? Questions I hear a lot are "How do you capture these leads?" and "How do successful brands convert these leads?".
I feel for business owners that ask me what I call the 'million dollar' or 'billion dollar' questions specific to Websites, Digital Assets, Automations, & Ai. Business owners want other successful owners to share an industry-specific Playbook that isn't really readily available without it becoming a Cost of Doing Business.
"My greatest piece of advice for business owners looking to tap into their digital resources, lead capture online, or grow a successful digital arm of their business model is to not get sucked into the rabbit hole of third-party and industry-specific platforms. Trying to find a solution to a problem digitally without understanding what you want the end result to be. This leads to more digital problems and less solutions. I suggest reverse engineering the approach. Consider the end-result you are looking for and work backwards to create that exact customer experience. Use what is available to you, install a system, and then find better solutions to the new and better problems you will encounter."

In my opinion, the"pay by the month" or "pay by the user" programs provide great learning lessons and steal valuable time from employees and business owners alike. Many of these programs are available for free through powerful easy-to-use tools. One program offered for FREE for lead capturing, is Google Forms.
