Hello to all my DIY (do it yourself) small business owners and entrepreneurs out there! I’m sure many of you have a website that you either had built by a web designer or you built it for yourself. And you do all the website maintenance yourself.
Have you ever wanted to add a special form on your site for people to fill out but you didn’t have the money to pay a web designer to do it? And does the thought of building a form from scratch intimidate you?
Well, I’ve found a simple DIY solution for you that I wanted to share with you! It’s called JotForm. It’s a free web form builder. For basic usage, up to 100 submissions/month, you can use JotForm fully. No crippleware. No ads. Just what you need.
So how does it work?
- You drag & drop fields to a form
- Copy the HTML code generated for you
- Paste to your website
- Smile as you wait to receive responses from your website! That’s it!
It takes really 3 easy steps to get a simple yet professional looking form on your website in minutes. There are so many wonderful design elements so you can find one to match your website colors instantly.
What kind of forms can I create with JotForm?
JotForm supports all standard web form field types. In addition, it allows you to use new and intuitive fields in your form such as Date Time Picker, Star Ratings, or CAPTCHA checks. Using JotForm, you can create any kind of web form.
