Why Use Contact Forms?

Nov 28, 2007
For an easy communication form, individuals and businesses, use contact forms for their guests. This gives all visitors a way to communicate with your business or with you, regarding all kind of things from questions about products to ordering your products and services. Many contact forms can also be used to gather information for survey questions, polling visitors on various topics, or allowing visitors to join your newsletter.

When companies post their email addresses on their websites, it opens the door for spammers to send you all kind of emails that you, more than likely, do not wish to receive, this can include advertisements, pornography, and other similar material. Running a business weeding, through all the spam emails, to find the ones you really need or wish to read can be a time consuming chore. On the other hand, if you use a contact form, your email is hidden from the human eye. Of course, this does not mean that you will never receive spam, but with the newest technologies available with our contact forms you will not receive as much as some.

There are such things, out there, called email harvesters and bots that can retrieve your email by visiting your website and seeing the posted address. Other bots can retrieve email addresses even behind the scenes. There are even some bots that can write in the fields you have on your form to send you spam submissions. With our contact forms you will have an advantage as we have a hidden anti-spam form field that the human eye cannot see. The robot, of course, will see this field and fill it in. When this occurs, the submitted content will automatically be discarded as spam.

Using contact forms is a better way to protect, not only your email address, but also personal information that might be included on the contact form by your visitors. You will be protecting not only yourself and your business, but all that wish to correspond with you through the contact form. Bots will not be able to retrieve any of the information supplied by yourself or by your visitors.

With contact forms on your website you will be able to give your visitors the ability to communicate safely and effectively through a website form, thus giving them a more secure and reliable communication system. With this in place, you will see an increase in community interaction and comments for your surveys and polls.
