In this article, I'm going to tell you about the most advanced WordPress form builder plugin i.e. WPForms you can use to create interactive conversational forms to increase your conversions.

Conversational Forms is a recently added feature in WPForms plugin which is also known as the best alternative to Typeform.

Many of you might have been using Typeform to create forms in WordPress. But, Conversational Forms by WPForms is a cost-effective solution which lets you create interactive WordPress forms.

Let's see how it is different from Typeform.

WPForms vs Typeform: Which is the best option?

Both Typeform and WPForms are great to create conversational forms in WordPress. But, there are certain factors which show how WPForms is different from Typeform.

  • Data Security - Typeform is a SAAS (Software as a service) tool which means when a user fills a form on your website, the data will be stored on their servers. Whereas, WPForms is an open-source WordPress plugin which means all your form data is stored on your own website, not on a third party platform.
  • Price - Though Typeform offer a free plan, their features are very limited. If you want more features, you'll have to upgrade to their premium plans that start from $30 per month. Whereas, WPForms gives you all powerful features such as unlimited forms, templates and more without the high costs of Typeform.
  • Ease of Use - Typeform provides you a number of templates to create surveys or online forms. However, to add your forms on the website, you need to add HTML code separately on a page where you want it to appear, that can be a difficult task for beginners. On the other hand, WPForms lets you create any type of forms including conversational forms in minutes.

Let's learn how to easily create conversations forms on your WordPress website with the help of WPForms plugin.

Conversational Forms will be highly effective on following types of forms:

  • Survey Forms
  • Job Application Form
  • User Registration Form
  • Email Subscription Form
  • Event Registration Form

These types of forms are typically longer and include several fields. By displaying all field at the same time, most of the users might get overwhelmed and leave the form without completing it.

You can fix this issue by using conversational forms. Instead of asking all questions at once, conversational forms ask users to answer one question at a time, leading to more interactive and a better completion rate.

Here, I'll show you an example to create a conversational survey form.

Firstly, you need to install Surveys and Polls addon by visiting WPForms >> Addons page to create a survey form.
