How To Create Signature Forms With WPForms? (Ultimate Guide)

John Wallace, the CEO of a leading online consulting firm, was receiving 3-4 leads through his website every week. As per his company’s policy, he was bound to use online agreements with signature mandatory for users. Someone told him to install digital signature forms on the pages. Surprisingly, in a few weeks, John saw an increase in leads by 40%. Let me explain how to create signature forms with an amazing plugin; WPFroms.

Why? It’s a fact that humans don’t want to waste their time. Think about it. You have a lead generation form or service agreement on your website. Due to company policies, it’s mandatory for you to ask for signatures. A user would download your form, put his signature on it, scan it, and upload it. That’s some time-consuming activity.

Instead, you could use a WPForms Digital Signature Form plugin for your WordPress site. It lets users add a signature to their forms with the swipe of their cursor. In this step-by-step guide, we’ll tell you how to install and use signature forms using WPForms addons on WordPress.
