If you are looking for a Jotform alternative, I suggest you to check out our friends at Typeform.com
The UX of their product is unparalleled on the market, I love the way you can create a multi-step conditional flow for the users, which makes it so much smoother and increases conversions between visits and submissions.
Embeds & HTML
As you would expect from a Jotform alternative, you can embed a Typeform on your website. Just as you would embed a Youtube or a Vimeo video. It’s great but sometimes it can behave weirdly on mobile, as all iframes usually do. As far as I’m concerned, I prefer to host the full Typeform HTML file on my own server. That way it shows under my own domain (not as mysite.typeform.com).
TIP: you can easily create multiple HTML versions of the same form ( = which will feed the same answers DB ) which can be uploaded to your own custom domain in a snap. On self-hosted WordPress for instance I usually upload a bunch of different Typeform HTML files in the media section of my sites for a lead generation form. I create hidden fields for each variant to track the origin of the submissions, all feeding the same form.
Say for instance that I place a call-to-action linking to my lead generation form on the homepage, I’ll use a hidden field called “homepage” for that specific HTML variant uploaded in my media section. I’ll create a “services” variant for the page introducing the services, etc. You can also append hidden fields to the direct URL of your Typeform. But the form won’t appear under your own domain (you’ll see in the address bar “mysite.typeform.com”)
Typeform has recently added a much needed feature if you need to place a tracking pixel on the success page (a page which appears after the user submits the form).
Basically Typeform will automatically redirect the user to whatever page you choose. There you’ll write a “Thank You” message and place your invisible Google or Facebook JS pixel. You can read the details about this brand new feature right here.
After reading this short piece, you’ll understand that I absolutely love Typeform. I’ve used it so many times and I’ve seen so many startups using it for all sorts of purposes. Market studies, customer satisfaction surveys, lead generation or even as a first iteration of their product, a proper MVP.
Typeform is a great Jotform alternative. I strongly encourage you to give them a try!
