I’ve recently been working with Typeform and specifically building forms for a current client.

I’ve used different Form builders before in the pursuit of embedding them into WordPress and trying to find that happy middle ground between asking people for information and making it interesting to fill in.

I’d been using JotForm previously, but found that though there was excellent functionality, it was lacking on looks. It felt like you were filling out a form in post office. Not that exciting.

So getting to know Typeform was a breath of fresh air and I can definitely recommend giving them a go. There’s an easy free version with buckets of functionality, but if you check it out and fancy 10% discount for ever (yes, ever ever), use this link:

Integration is easy as adding an iframe. If you’re not sure what an iframe is, don’t worry, it’s really easy. If you know how to get into the text editor in WordPress, that’s all you need. Drop the embed code in there.

I had a very specific set of visual needs and Typeform delivered. Simple as that.

There does seem to be a very distinct “style” to Typeform and you’ll see what I mean when you have a look, but as far as a form builder solution for WordPress, it’s a good place to start.

Benefits:

  • Looks good and has a cool scroll down reveal effect
  • Doesn’t look clunky and can easily be styled with content to be very personal
  • Mobile responsive
  • Lots of integration options
  • Excellent Free plan – you can achieve most things

Drawbacks:

  • You’re locked into a certain “style” unless you want to get cracking with css
  • You’ll need to get the PRO plan to get the Thank You page editor – kind of essential if you’re designing with website branding in mind

Cheers and let me know if you’ve any Typeform success stories (or nightmares!),
