Forminator Form Builder

Are you looking for a form builder to get leads and information on your blog and website visitors?

I was looking for a form builder a few days back. After going thru at least 15-20 plugins, I finally found one that is available for free.

The name of this plugin is Forminator. It may sound like a terminator, but it helps to build things, not to destroy anything.😂

Whenever I use any WordPress plugin, I first research its developers. Forminator form builder is developed by a famous software development company named WMPU DEV.

If you don’t know, this company has built some of the best plugins in the past that I have personally used. Some of the popular plugins are Smush and hummingbird.

I thought that with this plugin, I could only build form, but the free version gives more value than what other plugins offer by charging money from you.

Why should you use the forminator free version?

The best reason to use Forminator is that it is a drag-and-drop tool. Even if you don’t have coding knowledge, you can easily create a form in under 15 minutes. The free version of this tool also gives other features.

  • Easy to create forms – You can create amazing-looking forms with seven types of available templates, such as the contact us form, quote request, newsletters, Registration, and login forms.
  • Create from scratch – You can create forms from 25 available fields with just a few clicks.
  • Create quizzes and polls – If you own an educational website, you can create quizzes and take surveys building these forms.
  • Taking payments – If you sell any product or charge a consultancy fee on your site, you can add a payment method with stripe or Paypal.

I have created this newsletter signup form using this form builder. It took me about 10 minutes to do this, and now I can collect emails and send my reader the valuable information they want from this blog. You can also sign up for this.

Why should you use form builders on your WordPress site?

Form builders are essential; you should use them on your blog or website to get leads and know your blog’s potential readers.

I have observed that many people don’t use newsletters on their blogs. Using the benefits you as a website owner in a lot of ways. But the most important one is the emails of your readers. If you have great content, people will sign up for your newsletters to know more about the upcoming things you might share with them.
