The Typeform team analyzed 10,000 lead gen forms and discovered the top tricks for better conversion. The best news of all? They’re super simple.
Typeform’s data scientists analysed 10,000 lead generation forms and found the common characteristics of the top performers. Follow these tips to improve yours:
Whether it’s a free trial, gift, discount, or the chance to win a prize, lead magnets work. Be sure to feature them in your form for up to 11% more completions.
Forms featuring language that suggests exclusivity or limited access showed a 25% increase in conversion. Examples:
“Be the first”
“Get early access”
Numbers create clarity and including them in typeform welcome screens led to a 17% increase in completions.
“You’ll get a voucher in 3-5 days”
“We only have 20 spots available”
“This will only take 45 seconds!”
Sometimes there’s no point beating around the bush. People know you want their email address - and cutting to the chase by asking for it upfront showed a whopping 42% increase in completion.
The facts speak for themselves: People prefer answer fewer questions, so keep your lead gen forms short and sweet. (Take extra care if you’re considering more than two, as this decreased competions by 19% in our study.)
