How to add and customize a form on a Squarespace website

Answer me this : are you making it super easy for visitors to you website to get in touch with you?

No seriously, how many steps does it take in order to contact you, get connected to the right person at your business, or inquire directly about a product or service?

I hope you're saying, "yes, duh, of course it's easy for people to get in touch through my website" but maybe you're in the "ahhhh I put my email address on my contact page, does that count?" group - if that sounds like you, listen up!

I'm about to show you how easy it is to add forms to your Squarespace website.

As a web designer, I'm a huge fan of including forms on your website because they are a great and simple way for your customers to get in touch with you. In tech talk, they are a good choice from a user experience point of view.

Better yet, forms increase leads and conversions which means that they are also a smart business decision! Forms that are placed in prominent or thoughtful spots on your site lead to more inquiries from your visitors, which can help you sell more of your products, services and/or offerings.

If you’ve ever wondered how to add and customize a form on your Squarespace website, I hope this video shows you how easy it is to get one up and running!
