How to track Wufoo with Insiteful

Ready to start capturing & tracking leads from your forms?  With Wufoo and Insiteful, it just takes a couple clicks; follow the instructions below, depending whether you want to install Insiteful on all your forms, or just one:

How-to track partial entries & leads in Wufoo with Insiteful

  1. Add your website: Just login to Insiteful & visit the Domains page and add your website where indicated in the screenshot below.
    Insiteful App – Domains Page - Add Website
  2. Install code: You can manipulate any Wufoo forms embedded* in your website just like regular HTML forms — simply copy & paste the code from the Install page into whichever page or form you’d like to track (ideally after the form embed code). That’s all there is to it: you’re now capturing abandoned forms & partial leads from Wufoo!

*Wufoo does not allow adding custom JavaScript directly to Wufoo forms that are not hosted or embedded on your own website (they cite security reasons for this restriction: see source) — this tutorial is intended for embedded Wufoo forms. 

When you login to the Insiteful dashboard, three powerful web tracking reports are just one click away:

  1. Wufoo Forms Funnel Analytics

    Clicking on the chart icon next any given web form on the Forms page will bring you to the report pictured below: a top-level summary of your form performance, visualized as a funnel, along with smart recommendations on areas for improvement (i.e. the “confused field” warning below).

  3.  Wufoo Forms Leads Recovery

    As mentioned earlier, the Leads page lists all email leads where Insiteful is able to capture sufficient contact information from partial form entry data. On this page, you can assign automatic follow-up sequences to send drip emails to convert these leads. For more about automatic follow-up and other features of Insiteful, click here!

  4.  Wufoo Forms Email Follow-up

    You can easily set up an email auto-responder or follow-up sequence for your Wufoo Forms, so you can reach out to potential customers immediately after they start typing entries into your form. Although Wufoo was not designed for email marketing, you can still send custom emails in minutes using Insiteful and other Wufoo integrations like Mailchimp or Campaign Monitor. It takes just a few minutes to set up automated replies such as email confirmations, upsell/cross-sells, remarketing campaigns, and order/receipt emails to be sent automatically.

    With Insiteful + Wufoo forms, lead recovery is effortless: automatically re-engage prospects that don’t complete your forms with email follow-up – simply choose from our library of template sequences, customize your own, or use your existing marketing software! There are a few different ways you can automate email follow-up for your Wufoo Forms with Insiteful:

    1. Native email follow-up:
      To use Insiteful’s built-in automatic email follow-up functionality, go through the Follow-Up Guide, which walks through the steps to enable Insiteful to automatically send follow-up drip emails on your behalf.

    2. No-code CRM integrations:
      If you already have sophisticated follow-up workflows set up in your CRM, you may prefer to sync leads from Insiteful to your customer management software and configure email sequences from there. Insiteful makes this easy thanks to our no-code integrations with leading CRMs such as HubSpotSalesforcePodio and more.

    3. Zapier integrations:  
      If you use another email provider (ie. MailChimp, SendGrid, etc.), you can use Insiteful’s official Zapier app to automatically sync recovered leads to your mail merge software of choice.

  5.  Wufoo Abandoned & Incomplete Forms

    Whenever visitors fail to submit a form through the last button, they leave behind incomplete entries. For instance, forms may be abandoned due to technical difficulty or a lost network connection. Alternatively, visitors may spend a long time on each page of the form if it requires lengthy answers. Regardless of the reason, businesses seeking to boost their online lead generation should capture & restore incomplete entries so prospects can continue editing them.

    Unfortunately, traditional analytics like Google leave marketers completely blind to incomplete form entries — abandoned forms will slip by completely unnoticed unless you use a specialized partial form entry tracking tool like Insiteful. With a simple line of code, Insiteful will automatically recover abandoned forms & incomplete entries from your entire site!

  6. Wufoo Forms – Save & Continue Later

    Want to allow your users to save & continue later on your web forms? It doesn’t have to be complicated. With Insiteful, it takes just one click to upgrade any of your existing forms to allow users to save & resume progress without losing incomplete entries— so they can pick up where they left off later.

    For the hundreds of teams that close deals via web forms (i.e. orders, price quotes, support requests, contact), abandoned forms are a critical issue that directly impact bottom-line revenue. Unfortunately, many teams are forced to accept losing out on these opportunities due to the limitations of their form builders. Insiteful empowers marketers to easily track & optimize their existing forms, regardless of the underlying platform or builder!

    One of our most popular power-up’s is the “Save & Continue Later” feature: it takes less than 90 seconds to enable & achieved conversion lift of >12% in case studies! That is equal to more than 1 extra lead for every ten you’re getting today, with virtually no extra work. Simply visit your domain settings, enable the saved progress power-up, customize the time delay to your liking, and you’re all set! See the full instructions for enabling Save & Continue Later here.
