Contact forms are a basic functionality in almost every website – and getting leads is one of the key targets for most commercial websites.
Sometimes mail doesn’t work / goes to spam folder / get’s missed.
Save all your leads on top of them being sent to you. There are a multitude of options here (CRM’s, plugins), I found that Flamingo meets the needs of most small/medium sized websites.
Flamingo was made by the same guy who created Contact Form 7 so they work seamlessly together.
Once installing the plugin, you don’t have to do anything, all the leads are recorded into your site.
There are a few advanced settings if you’d like, these are added in the additional settings tab:
flamingo_email: "[the-email-field]" flamingo_name: "[the-name-field]" flamingo_subject: "[the-subject-field]"
And you can use plain text and mail tags:
flamingo_name: "[first-name-field] [last-name-field]"
Go ahead, install the flamingo plugin and never loose a lead!
