Increase Sales, Registrations, and Conversions of Visitors to Leads using Multi-tabs forms

What do you do with a long form that has many questions?

Before we decide what to do with a long form, we need to understand the drawbacks of a very long form. A long form intimidates the users because it gives the impression that it requires much effort to complete. Like most of us, we abandon completing the form when we feel that it's just too much.

Putting many questions in a long form from top to bottom can cause the user to feel lost because the device’s limited viewing area can only show some questions. Although grouping the questions into separate sections with headers may help the user navigate through the questions, the headers may not always be visible when the user scrolls. 

Zapof forms help you group related questions into separate section horizontally using multi-tab or vertically using the expansion elements. The multi-tab and expansion show a single panel at a time. 

Using our multi-tab and expansion forms, we help you bring the following benefits to your users.

Reducing Cognitive Overload

Each group of related questions is now within a separate tab or accordion panel. The user can go to a different tab or accordion panel without scrolling. The tab or accordion header’s title helps the user to know where to find the questions related to the header’s title.

Giving Sense of Simplicity

Answering the questions in each tab is quicker for the users because the users already have the idea of what kind of required information by looking at the tab or accordion header’s title.

Increasing the Conversions of Visitors to Leads

You can increase the conversion of your site visitors to leads, by cleverly beginning with the tab with more straightforward questions and lower commitment and ending with the tab with questions that ask for a final commitment, such as agreeing to the payment amount or subscribing to your company newsletter.

Simplifying the Task to Fill Up the Form

For a form with many questions on a single page, there is nothing more annoying than finding out that we have not filled some mandatory questions when we try to submit the form. Trying to find the unanswered mandatory question in a long form is hard. Our multi-tabs and expansion headers flag a red dot when there is a mandatory question that needs to be filled, and each unanswered question carries a transparent red sticker.

The first form below uses multi-tab and the next form uses accordion element.
