Adding a Contact Form to Your WordPress Websites

Including a contact form is a staple of any professional website. Giving your visitors an easy way to contact you will provide opportunities to interact with them, and ultimately, increase your sales. If you don’t have a contact form on your sites or your client’s sites, make that a priority today. You are missing out on valuable sales opportunities.

Many of today’s WordPress themes include built-in contact form functionality. There are some that don’t, however, so if you find yourself working with a theme that doesn’t include a contact form, the best strategy is to use a plugin.

There are many quality contact form plugins available, and we encourage you to choose the plugin that includes the features you want.

If you’re looking for a plugin that provides a basic contact form, we recommend the Contact Form plugin. This plugin has a very intuitive interface, and it’s easy to create a basic contact form with it.

After you’ve created your contact form, it’s important to test it. Complete the form yourself, and then review the email you receive to assure that all of the fields are configured properly.
