An online form is a great way to capture some needed information from a lead or client, and Google has an easy option to do so. Once you create a form you can send it by email, give a person a link, or embed the form on another web page. Once someone fills out the information and submits it the form will keep all the information in a place where you can read it and export it to a file to download. You can also attach a Google Sheet to it and have all the submissions kept in a spreadsheet. All you need is a Gmail account, and if you don’t already have one it’s free!

Head on over to https://forms.google.com to get started.

Login and click a template or blank to start working on your form.

Don’t forget to title your form.

On the right hand side are your choices for adding in blocks, weather that be a photo, a video, a text block, or a question. You can split up multiple questions into sections that either are always displayed or only come up after the previous section questions have been read or filled out.

Once you have finished your form you can then click the send button at the top right and send it through email, grab a link to the form, or get the code to embed the form on any web page.

When someone fills out your new form you will see that the answers are all stored in the response tab. You can view all the responses for one question or see individual responses by person to each question. If you attached a spreadsheet to the form all answers will be imported to that spreadsheet. You can also download the responses to your computer.

All Google services including Forms, Docs, Sheets, and Slides can be accessed from any computer or mobile device as long as you login to view them. All your work is saved in the Google cloud and can be accessed from anywhere.
