Contact forms are a fundamental part of practically every website. For many companies, the contact form is a primary way to convert a casual visitor into an engaged client.
However, the graphic design of the “Contacts” page is often omitted and is simply implemented by the site developer.
Keep in mind that a functional contact form, with beautiful design and wonderfully integrated allows a first positive approach with your casual visitor.
When you will design the contact form on your site keep in mind these 3 points:
1) Design integration: the forms match the style and appearance of the site you find them on; restyle all the elements that constitute a form is not a simple job (input type, check boxes, radio buttons, etc..) but it’s worth it.
2) Help user: assist the user filling out the form will lower the probability of receiving incorrect data or even losing the casual visitor’s conversion. So is helpful, for example, include tooltips, error messages and indicate required fields.
3) Confirmation: It is absolutely necessary that the user can know the outcome of completing the contact form and what will be the next steps. So after the user has pressed the “Send” button, you should show a page containing, for example, the text: “The message has been sent successfully, you will receive an email confirmation that summarizes the reported data. Our sales staff will take care to contact you as soon as possible. Thank you!”
