If you are a Developer and Web Designer you are very familiar with using Gravity Forms for WordPress development. Gravity Forms is what Trinity Web Media considers the industry standard for WordPress forms. As a WordPress Developer, our Gravity Forms developer license allows us to do some pretty cool things on our WordPress projects.
Four Ways We Use Gravity Forms For WordPress
On any given site we could use any of these ways to make a WordPress site work great for our client’s goals.
1. Form system: Of course, first and foremost we use Gravity Forms in its purest form — as a form system. Forms can be created with simple conditional logic to make the forms run off of ‘if this then that’ logic. Pretty slick to route submissions to specific individuals based on their responses. But, yes, at its essence, Gravity Forms is a great form system.
2. E-commerce: With developer add-ons, Gravity Forms can power simple e-commerce. By integrating a payment mechanism add-on, Gravity Forms can power simple online sales. Trinity Web Media likes to use this method for e-book downloads, static non-variable products and other physical items. Simple. Fast. Effective.
3. Quizzes and surveys: There is a lot of intel you can gather from your clients and audience when you ask them surveys and quizzes. We are a believer in creating self-scoring assessments to better qualify clients and let them learn more about what they needs and how our Web Development and Digital Marketing Solutions help. Pretty cool stuff.
4. User Generated Content: With a little strategy, you can leverage Gravity Forms to automatically post the entered content to a WordPress Post. By using a moderation notification, your users and audience can be authors and contributors to your WordPress site.
If you ever had to write the code for an html form you understand the power of Gravity forms. Newsletters, Quizzes, Payment, CRM Integration and E-Commerce is really just the beginning. Kudos to the Gravity Forms team for making such a big impact on the WordPress community.
