Read on for the most common problems you may be facing when it comes to form conversion:
Using social media wrong
Be wary of making visitors sign-up for a new account, 86% of users won’t sign up for a new account if it requires a registration process; however, 77% of users are comfortable with single sign-on using an existing social media account.
Flat calls to action
Conversion rates jump by as much as 320% when an additional word is added to “submit,” for example “submit now” or “submit form.” Liven up your Call to Action (CTA) with a clear direction for increased conversions from your form.
Lacking marketing strategy

Slow load times

No empirical evidence

Opt for autofill

Keep it short
