One of the Conversational Forms plugins I recommend for every WordPress website owner is WPForms. This is because of its long list of features, ease of use (you don’t need any developer) and integration with many other apps.

Another solid reason is the team behind the plugin.

If you’ve heard or used Wpbegginers, OptinMonster, MonsterInsights, then (from the technical point of view), you shouldn’t be scarred giving WPForms (the excellent WordPress Form builder) a try.

Today, we are looking at a unique and attractive WPForms addon called Conversational Forms. This allows you to create a unique experience and make your visitors feel like having a face to face conversation with you.

WPForms’ Conversational Forms builder

Have you ever been hit by a long boring form online?

You get to something quite exciting and you want to be part of the community or you simply want to submit some requested data. But the website owner completely smashes your enthusiasm with a dull form that seems to take your whole day.

I face this so often and for the most part, I simply postpone the action or completely click off and never return. This is happening to most of us online. But some website owners try to resolve the issue by kicking off and eliminating some fields on their webforms.

In my opinion, that’s not the solution because you don’t get the accurate information from your visitors. Removing a form field to shorten your web form means you never get the data that field represents.

WPforms’ Conversational Form is the solution

WPForms WordPress contact form generator doesn’t reduce your form fields at all. It presents your form in a conversational way and improves your readers’ form experience. It provides a unique experience for users that feels more personal, much like chatting in a face to face conversation.

WPForms gives your readers a seamless form feeling experience. The mouse click is not required to move focus from one field to the other on the form. This is some lazy and time consuming exercise on standard forms. But a hit on your enter keyboard on the conversational form will reveal and take the cursor to the next field.

Cool tutorial Enstine. I have been hit with some rough-looking forms. Long, kinda ugly and multiple CAPTCHAs turn me, forcing me to head for the cyber hills. Far better to set up pleasing, simply forms to collect little data and to make the connection.
