Do you wish you could connect with more first-time guests? Need more volunteer signups? Wish more people had brought fried chicken to your last potluck?
I'll cover common Church Form mistakes and advice on how to make them better.
There are 5 common mistakes I see on church forms all the time:
Every field on a form is a hurdle people have to jump to complete it. Keep in mind, the longer it takes to fill a form, the less likely someone will fill it out.
It should only take about 10 seconds to read and understand a form. The more text you add, the more a person has to devote time and focus to complete it. That's not ideal when interacting with others or trying to focus on a sermon.
This is related to the first problem, but it's distinct enough to cause its own trouble. Never ask for information that isn't necessary. Again, each field is a hurdle. Don't add hurdles that aren't relevant.
Sure, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But as you create your forms, keep an eye on making the form look appealing. You would be surprised how the visual appeal of your forms (or lack thereof) changes how people interact with them.
