Carl Taylor | October 2, 2018

Bringing a new lead to your website is just one step towards growing your coaching business. In order to convert leads into paying customers, they also need to be able to contact you easily.

There are various ways you can nudge your website visitors to connect with you after they come to your page. However, one of the most efficient ways is through a WordPress contact form plugin.

WordPress form plugins are easy to install and simple for your visitors to fill out. Because they don’t require your visitors to open a new page or take an extra step, it’s easy to encourage interested individuals to send you a message.

There are many different WordPress form plugins that add a contact form to your website. However, they’re not all created equal.

The Best WordPress Form Plugins for Coaching Sites

Different kinds of content forms need to be used for specific purposes. Depending on the kind of information you’re trying to collect, you’ll want to use a certain plugin.

If you’re looking to add a contact form to your WordPress website, here are some of the best WordPress form plugins available.

Is Automation Agency The Right Fit For You? Take This Quick Quiz to Find Out!

1. Gravity Forms

If you’re looking for a simple solution for adding a contact form to your WordPress site, Gravity Forms should be your go-to.

Personally, I think Gravity Forms is the only form plugin you need. The others in this list are really only if you’re looking for an alternative for some reason. Gravity Forms is 100% my recommendation.

Gravity Forms comes pre-equipped with over thirty form fields, allowing you to pick and choose exactly what information you want to collect from your audience. You can even use conditional fields, adding or removing specific content based on the responses your visitor provides.

Gravity Forms is a great choice for coaches looking for a completely customizable tool. With Gravity Forms, you can create something as simple as a basic contact form, as well as a multi-page custom integration for more complex situations. There is no better Form Plugin in my mind – Gravity Forms is the most flexible and powerful.

Gravity Forms easily integrates with your favorite apps, such as PayPal, Stripe, ActiveCampaign and Dropbox. Pricing for Gravity Forms begins at $59 a year.

If you’re an Automation Agency client, we can install Gravity Forms on your website at no extra charge through our developer license. Simply submit a task and let us know you’d like to start using the Gravity Forms plugin.

2. Jetpack

Jetpack is a contact form plugin created by Automattic. As one of the most popular WordPress plugins, Jetpack goes beyond simple form building.

Jetpack is a much larger system that monitors site stats and analytics, automates social media posts, and even implements SEO tools. This means it’s great for coaches who don’t want to get too involved with another tool.

However, because Jetpack does so much, it means you’re pretty limited when it comes to the forms you create. While this won’t be a problem for many coaches, it might be too restrictive for those looking for a highly customizable option.

Jetpack begins with a free option, with paid options beginning at $39 a year.

3. FormCraft

FormCraft allows users to develop clean, great-looking forms with a simple drag-and-drop feature. Because FormCraft doesn’t involve any coding or design experience, users of any experience can create forms that fit their unique needs and preferences.

With FormCraft, it’s easy to monitor your form submissions. Notifications are delivered straight to your email inbox, so you don’t need to worry about checking yet another dashboard.

FormCraft also comes with a premium version that includes auto-save form progress, analytics, and conditional fields. This means you can better understand how your audience is using your forms so you can optimize your page and improve their experience.

FormCraft offers a free version with purchased add-ons, allowing you to pick and choose exactly what other features you’d like to use.

4. eForm

If you’re looking for a tool packed with features that will allow you to easily create highly specific forms, eForm is the plugin for you. As one of the most advanced tools on the market for WordPress contact forms, eForm allows for a completely customizable experience for users and visitors.

eForm goes beyond building just WordPress contact forms. It’s also a great tool for building quizzes, surveys, securing payment, or processing feedback. This means it’s a great tool if you’re looking to get more bang for your buck.

eForm is notable for their e-commerce integrations. It’s easy to connect eForm with your Stripe, PayPal, or WooCommerce account — making it a great add-on tool for coaches selling products.

There isn’t a free version of eForm. However, you can purchase the tool for a one-time fee of $29.
