Written by Mark Steinbrueck

paperwork-315083_1280Welcome back to our series of why WordPress is a great website platform for you.  We are in the final stretch of posts on this topic and if you have missed any of our previous posts, below is a list of the past 10 blog posts discussing the benefits of WordPress websites:

  1. It’s Supported World Wide
  2. It’s Free!
  3. It’s updated on a regular basis
  4. It is easy to use
  5. Image Sliders
  6. Easy Calendars
  7. Staff Directory
  8. Easy Contact Forms
  9. Photo Galleries
  10. Online Event Registration

We are going to keep the discussion on specific functionality that is easy to integrate into your WordPress website.  The 11th reason that WordPress is a great website platform for you is:  Custom Online Forms

OurChurch.Com designs and creates a lot of church websites, ministry websites, and school websites.  Most of these organizations have needs for people to fill out forms that are tied to things non-date related.  For example, do you require volunteers to turn in a form?  Do you have prospective members or students fill out a form for a tour?  If so, adding custom online forms is a great solution to the hassle of paper forms.  Just like offering online event registration, having online custom forms eliminates the problem of lost or misplaced paper forms.

We have found that the best online forms plugin to use is Visual Forms Builder.

Some of the benefits of Visual Forms Builder are:

  • Eliminate the hassle of paper forms
  • Environmentally friendly (GO GREEN!)
  • Ability to export all registrations into a spreadsheet
  • Create unlimited forms
  • Choose the specific information you want required for registration (customized fields)

Visual Forms Builder comes standard with our Custom Premier website package or can be added to the Express or Pro website.
