Main Round-Table Topic: Contact Forms for WordPress

In this episode, we looked at all the major players in the contact form plugin space.

Not only did we analyze premium plugins like Gravity Forms, WPForms, and Formidable Forms, but also freemium models like Ninja Forms ans Caldera Forms.

What did we like and dislike about each one? What sorts of extensions and integrations are included in each level? Essentially, the wet can you expect to do with each type of contact form plug-in?

One things that really stands out is how much room is left for other contact form plugins and services to exist.

There’s a strong sense of market validation when is 6 or 7 major plug-ins can all exist and grow simultaneously.

We even left some time to discuss a couple of contact from solutions that you might not of thought of.

If you’re building websites for clients, this is a good episode to listen to. Which contact form plugin is right for your project? We tried to clarify some of that in this episode.
