Share your typeform to collect data

Related to:

You created a beautiful typeform – built all the questions, created the Logic path, applied an elegant design to it. That’s the way to go. But even the most exquisite form feels useless and sad unless it can collect data.

We have great news for you. Collecting data with your typeform is easy – and you will be surprised by the completion rate you’ll get!

There are three common ways you can reach out to your clients, peers or audience to collect their responses:

  1. Send the typeform in an email
  2. Share your typeform on social media sites
  3. Embed your typeform in your blog or webpage

Send the typeform in an email

You can distribute the URL of the typeform in an email. Just follow these easy steps:

  1. Open your typeform,
  2. go to the Share panel,
  3. and click on the email icon.  Email icon NEW
  4. A new browser tab will open so you can preview and customize the content of the email before sharing it: Email_generated

You can simply click on the Copy button and the URL will be copied to your clipboard – then you can paste it into an email. Please be aware that Safari and Firefox for Mac don’t support “copy to clipboard” function and, for this reason, the Copy button is disabled when using these browsers.

The good news is that we know a trick we can share with you to create an email that looks as if the typeform was embedded:

  1. Take a screenshot of the Welcome screen (or any screen of the typeform you’d like to be displayed),
  2. insert it into the email,
  3. then link the image to the typeform.

This way, people will tend to click on the Welcome screen button in the image, and sure enough, they’ll be redirected to the typeform – that will open in a new web browser tab.

Share your typeform on social media sites

You can also distribute your typeform via social media websites, such as Twitter or Facebook. Here are the steps to follow (we are using Facebook as an example):

  1. Open your typeform,
  2. go to the Share panel,
  3. and click on the icon of the social media site you would like to use: Social buttons distribute NEW
