Keep It Simple!

+Social Media Today has 4 Tips to Create an Epic Web Form that we thought was worth sharing. The tips are simple... very simple... because that is all you need. Here they are, in a nutshell:

1. Keep the page uncluttered

Your web form’s purpose is to allow users to complete the desired task - so you need to make it as easy as possible for them to do so. Include only the most important information and keep it as brief as possible. Include some white space in the form’s design; it makes it form “feel” uncluttered.

2. Don’t ask for too much information

Drop-off rates increase as you include more extraneous questions and fields. Of course, you want to get know as much as you can about your users via your form, but only include necessary questions.

3. Make it easy

Do whatever it takes to make the form as easy as possible to fill out. For example, make sure that the length of a field is appropriate for the type of data it will contain. Auto-populate fields whenever possible. Make it clear which fields are required and which are optional. Allow for tabbing between fields. Provide help to your user if you think they’ll need it.

4. Create a stellar “thank you” page

Your 'Thank You'' page and follow up email are just as important as the form itself. Be creative and make people feel good about the action they just took. Use video, images, and make it personalized. A 'Thank You' page is not only polite, but also continues the interaction between you and your user. Your 'Thank You' page should confirm the action. For example, “Thank you for donating to our organization,” states the action that has been taken. A 'Thank You' page is also a place that can lead your user to interact with you on a social network, so include social media buttons.

The only other tip we can think to add is:

5. Make sure the form is mobile-friendly

As of 2015, worldwide mobile phone internet user penetration was 52.7 percent. In 2017, figures suggest that more than 63.4 percent of mobile phone users will access online content through their devices. It is imperative that your form is easy to fill out and submit across mobile and handheld devices.
