If you’re looking to create an online form but don’t want to use a free plugin like WordPress Form Builder then you can use ClickFunnels to create an incredibly simple to use and customisable form with no code required. In this article, we’ll show you how to build a simple contact form using ClickFunnels featuring fields from Name to Email, along with a button to send the message.
Create a Free Account
Before you start building your form, you’ll need to have a free account at ClickFunnels.com. Once you’ve created an account, you’ll see your dashboard which contains all the forms you’ve created and can access them from any device.
ClickFunnels also allows you to create forms for free in the same way as your account. However, if you decide that you want to keep your form for longer you’ll need to upgrade your account.
Add Your Field
Once you’ve created your form, you can start adding fields to it. To add a field, click the gear icon in the top-right corner of the form and select Add Field.
Then, in the input field that appears, add your field and click Save.
You can add as many fields as you like to your form, and if you want to add more options to your form (like an auto-complete or an option-group field), you can do so by repeating the above process.
Set up the Submission Process
Before you start sending submissions, you’ll need to set up the submission process on your form. To do this, click the gear icon again and select Edit Submission Process.
You can configure how you want the form to handle submissions here (for example, you can change the subject line and turn off the notification email that is sent to you when a new submission is made).
Build Your Button
To send submissions, simply click the button that says Submit at the end of your form. You can add a short explanation about what this button does if you want.
You can also style the button however you like by clicking the gear icon and selecting Add Another Style.
Then, in the CSS box that appears, add the class or ID of the button that you want to style and its text, and click Save.
Test Your Form
Once you’ve finished creating your form, you can test it by either going to your form’s URL or by opening up your account and visiting Dashboard/forms.
Then, click the test button to submit your form and see how it looks on your website. You can also add more styles to the button if you want to change its look completely.
Depending on how your form looks, you can decide whether or not to publish it. If it looks decent, then you can continue on to the next step.
Publish Your Form
If you decided that you want to go ahead and publish your form, then you can do so from Dashboard. To publish your form, click the gear icon again and select Publish Form.
Then, in the popup that appears, click the button that says Publish Now.
Your form will now be live on your site and accessible to anyone who visits it. You can give it a catchy name like “Contact Us” or “Submit Name” and tag it with your keywords so that it can be found when someone searches for content related to your niche.
If you ever decide that you no longer want to use this form, you can delete it by clicking the trash icon next to it and selecting Delete from Dashboard.
Optional: Add An E-mail Subscribe Button
If you really want to make sure that your visitors hear about upcoming blog posts and special offers from time to time, then you can add a button that subscribes them to your e-mail list. To do this, click the gear icon again and select Add Email Subscription.
Then, in the form that appears, add your e-mail address and other details (like name and blog URL) and click Save.
You can use this button to send out regular emails regarding new content and offers that you run across.
That’s all there is to creating a form with fields and a button on the Dashboard of a ClickFunnels account. You can add more styles, remove styles or edit the settings of your form at any time from your dashboard.
