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%.
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 agreements on your website. Due to company policies, it’s mandatory for you to ask 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 your 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.
How to Install Signature Forms Using WPForms addons
You will lose customers no more, for WPForms has made installing digital signature forms a piece of cake for you. It lets you add a signature field for your forms where users can sign them online.
Step 1: Create a Signature Form
Before doing anything, you need to install a signature addon for your forms. The signature addon will be a blank box where users can digitally add their signatures.
I. Go to your WordPress admin dashboard. Click on addons in your WPForms plugin on the right sidebar.
II. Search for the signature addon and activate it.
The signature addon will give you the access of using the signature field into your forms. This can be done for both new as well as the existing forms.
Now, let’s try if it works.
Once you’ve installed the signature addon, go to the WPForms settings and choose to create a new form.
Add as many fields as you want such as Email, Phone number, First Name, Last Name, etc.
Now, go to the fancy field option where you’ll find a signature field. This is the one you just installed. Click on the field or drag it to your form.
To make the e-signature mandatory, check on the required box so that the user won’t be able to submit the form without adding a signature.
Step 2: Publish Your Signature Forms
In the previous baby steps, you installed a signature field to your forms. Now is the time to publish your form. If you are using a WordPress Gutenberg editor, follow these simple steps to install your signature form in WordPress.
