A contact form is a very important part of your website. Not only does it provide an easy way for people to contact you, but it also provides some SEO benefit.
Adding a contact form to your WordPress website is very easy and there are plenty of plugins to choose from. Here’s a look at a few of the top contact form plugins you can use for your WordPress website.
Maybe the best and certainly one of the most popular, Gravity Forms is a great choice for your contact form and other forms for your WordPress website. It’s very easy to use and provides plenty of function.
This is one of the most beginner friendly plugins for WordPress and your contact form. You can even use the plugin for quizzes, a web directory, lead generation, surveys and other types of forms. The only real issue with this plugin is that it’s a bit expensive, especially if you just need a contact form.
Contact Form 7
This is one of the most popular plugins found for a WordPress contact form. It’s found in the official WordPress plugin directory. This is a free contact form plugin and does offer premium upgrades.
The major advantage of using the Contact Form 7 Plugin is the cost. It’s free to install and will work for a great contact form if that is all you need. However, it can be a bit difficult for the absolute beginner and the user interface isn’t the most advanced.
Ninja Forms offers a free and a premium option with their very interactive form. This is an easy one to install and doesn’t take much effort to get up and running fast.
You can use the base plugin free of charge form the WordPress plugin directory. Along with the free plugin, you can add premium extensions to make it even better. These include SMS notifications, Salesforce, Freshbooks and other extensions.
The only real negative of this plugin is the cost of the extensions. Once you buy two or more, you might as well use Gravity Forms because of the price you will pay.
All three of these contact form plugins are high quality and will provide what you need for your WordPress website. If you just need a contact form, the Contact Form 7 plugin will do the trick. However, if you need more than just a contact form, both Gravity Forms and Ninja Forms provide great options.
