Profitable Lead Gen Series: Optimized Forms

Posted by Shaye Smith

July 3, 2020

Lead generation doesn't actually happen until you turn a visitor into a lead by collecting their information via a form. Forms are the key to building a landing page that converts.

Forms come in handy when it’s time for people to sign-up, subscribe to your blog, download an offer or piece of content, or take the next step on an action you’re encouraging. These forms are a way for you to find prospects, but they also allow prospects to identify themselves to you, so you can reach out and nurture the relationship in relevant and personalized ways.

Posted by Shaye Smith

May 15, 2020
