Website Form Generator

You can increase the interactivity of your website with an email form. An email form can help your customers have a conversation with you, and can help you suggest or control the topics of conversation. You can:

  • Collect visitors’ email addresses for an opt-in newsletter
  • Have prospects contact you for more information
  • Have clients send in their project-start-up information (like an intake questionnaire)
  • Have interested visitors ask you a question or suggest article topics

Creating a form that emails you its’ content can help with all of these tasks and more. But, how do you code the form?

I just found a free online tool that works really well for this purpose:

You sign up for an account, and then it walks you through the process of creating an email form. Then, it generates a simple link that you can paste into your website code, email to your designer, or place on a blog post.

The added bonus to these forms is that they come with CAPTCHA images – those combinations of letters that some forms make you type in. These help control spam submissions.

Try it out if you need to make your website a bit more interactive.

  1. Rachel, you took one of the next ideas I had for a post right out of my head! Great design minds apparently think alike.

    The forms out of this tool do come out looking pretty decent “out of the box”, though. There are certainly some tweaks to be done and a bit of customization, but they’re not that much work.

    Watch for a post on that topic here soon!
