Typeform is an online software company, based in Barcelona, that allows customers to create engaging and conversational online forms, surveys, quizzes, and landing pages called typeforms.
All Typeforms are mobile responsive meaning the forms adjust automatically for users when they visit your form from their mobile devices. So these forms look great not only on computer screens, but also on smart phones.
But most importantly, Typeforms make data collection kind of a cool experience for users – which says a lot when you consider the bland experience most of us run into with Survey Monkey or Google Forms. And as an entrepreneur, if you can make data collection seamless and fun for your leads and customers, you will set yourself apart from the competition in the digital economy.
Typeform Makes Forms More Human
What makes Typeform truly magical is that you collect information one question at a time like a real face-to-face conversation – remember those? 😉 and you make it personalized with the person’s first name throughout the form. Typeform makes forms more human. The Graceful Resources team uses Typeform to conduct comprehensive business and project requirements assessments with project clients.
The possibilities with Typeform are truly endless and once you’ve experienced a well-crafted Typeform as a user, you’ll want to create a similar experience for your own audience.
For another dynamic Typeform example, please discover the elegant In Charge Quiz from Dr. Valerie Baker.
Valerie was a client of mine and we designed this Typeform together and integrated it with Ontraport to build her email list. Typeform can also be integrated via Zapier with countless other email marketing services like AWeber (which I used to use) and ConvertKit (which I now use and recommend – here’s why).

Typeform is free to try out with the Basic Plan, but the magic is available with the Pro Plan ($35/month) with logic jumps, custom thank you screens, respondent notifications via email, calculators and payment fields.
You can also save money by investing in a year up front and getting two months for free. You can also save 10% off either the monthly or annual plan by using my affiliate link with Typeform.
Once you become a Typeform customer, you’ll have access to the same affiliate discount too which will lower your bill by 10% with each referral and it is cumulative so that every ten referrals, you can use Typeform at no cost. Once you start using it, you’ll definitely start spreading the word because it is that good!
My Typeform Lessons Learned
Over the past 9 years, I’ve gained a lot of experience designing websites for my family, community, and clients. WordPress sites are a lot of work, but in the end, static contact on a webpage can be well, kind of boring. Typeform allows me and you to turn boring forms into engaging forms, and to even turn dynamic forms into their own web pages or sites. It’s like no tool I’ve ever discovered.
I can also integrate Typeform seamlessly with sites (like this one) running on the Rainmaker Platform.
Like any software, it takes some time to get really creative with all the logic flow, but it’s a rewarding experience. For those interested, I am leading an online project to help people build an email list even without a website. The project starts in April 2017.
One of the lead generation tools that will be introduced and likely taught (based on project participant interest) is Typeform. You can stay connected to project announcements via this Lead Magnet Survey – and, as you would probably guess, it’s a Typeform too!
I have an affiliate relationship with Typeform so if you decide to invest in Typeform via this link (or any of the Typeform links in this post), I am eligible for a nominal commission (10% off my monthly Typeform cost) from the good folks at Typeform. There is no extra cost to you and your use of my affiliate link helps support the growth of Graceful Resources.
If you start using Typeform, I would encourage you to set up an affiliate relationship with them as well. You’ll want to spread the word too. The software is that good, and I would use and recommend it even if there was no affiliate program.
