[Huge Feature Update] We’ve Added The Ability For You To Collect Phone Numbers, Addresses, Zip Codes, Etc.

multiple form fields leadpages

Please excuse the home video.  Our video guy (Jeff) decided to pull a fast one and get married.  So he’s on some Hawaiian island right now nursing umbrella drinks and making me do this.

Note #2: If you do not want to use the form builder mentioned below, please do not re-open or save existing pages that you’ve created with the templates entitled “Basic Squeeze Page” and “Basic Squeeze Page (Aligned To The Right).”

Note #3: This feature is extremely new and we absolutely want your questions in the comments below.
 

Hey, this is Clay from LeadPages, and I want to show you something that we’re incredibly excited to announce, and that is that we’ve added the ability for you to include phone number fields, address fields, and any other number of fields in your forms in LeadPages. Now, we’re rolling this out slowly and it’s not available on all templates, but right now, this ability is available on two templates. It’s available on the basic squeeze page template and the basic squeeze page template aligned to the right, and let me show you how this works.

So I’m here in AWeber and I’ve created a form. It has a number of additional fields that I’ve added to it. I’ve added a phone number field. I’ve added a favorite color field. I could potentially add any other number of fields to this including address fields, SMS, you know, cell phone number fields. Anything else that I could conceivably add to this form is going to work here. So I’m going to click on ‘Save Your Form’ and again, you can create this in whatever CRM or email service provider you’re using. There will be a form builder and just create your form in that CRM or that email service provider like you normally would, and when you’re in LeadPages, just choose one of these two templates to get these additional form fields. I’m going to choose this one, and when I click on this button, the pop up appears. I can adjust this text as needed. I also can go here to integration settings and I can load the form that I just created in AWeber. So click on here and then I click here on customize this form, and what it’s going to do right now is load the form that I just created.

Now, the name and email fields are required, but here under form fields, it says phone number and favorite color so I’m going to go and load these fields as well. I can also change a number of things about this form; button, color, spacing, alignment, a whole bunch of other things. I can move these fields around as necessary and I can also edit the text that comes up when a required field isn’t entered and I can also change the values that appear when invalid data is submitted to the form. I’m going to click on okay here, and I’m going to click on ‘Save.’ I’ll call this blog ‘Demo’ and I’ve now created this page. So when I go and load the page and I click here for free instant access and I fill this out, favorite color, blue, and I’m going to click here on free instant access, then it goes through.

This feature is now available. It is something that’s new. We do want your suggestions on how you’re implementing it and we’d love to hear from you. Thanks so much. Take care.

    I noticed this the other day for my squeeze aligned to the right page, and it works very nicely with GetResponse forms! Great job guys, looking forward to using this for my local clients now!

    • Qsnoodle

      True! Since Get Response puts extra code in the last name field that messes things up in another AR design plugin I have. Thanks for the update!

  • mmmmmmmmmmmmm!

  • aronanderson

    Looks great! Would be awesome if its possible to make some of the fields bigger to fit more text – for example if you are asking for more info from people that are opting in for a free consult…

    • You can do that by adding a notes field. For sure. You can have bigger fields than what is shown above.

  • Sarah Staar

    I need this on webinar registration pages so i can collect phone numbers.

  • This will be awesome on multiple stage opt-in forms. I’m also stoked about getting SMS numbers with LeadPages.

    • Awesome. And you got it. All of the above is coming.

  • Nicky Santoro

    I would love to see the ability to create a form and fields within LeadPages without having to go through an outside email service provider so that LeadPages will pass on the field values directly us.

    If there was a LeadPages API where we can connect the database that we have here at the company to the form and form fields that we built on LeadPages it would improve productivity as now the information is passed directly to us for segmentation instead of having to import the list from an ESP and then work with it. Basically it would cut one step in terms of optimizing the email list to customer / potential customers based on the actions they take after signing up.

    This way when the potential customer enters their name or any other fields within the form, the values are passed back to us directly into our database.

    The other option if not through an API is to pass the values back to us through an email template so that we will get an email every time the form is completed.

    If an email is sent back to us with the data, we can always parse it on our end or manually enter the information into the DB.

    • This is exactly what I need as well.
      I have sites where I only capture a
      name and number and I currently use a
      wordpress theme that emails me the
      captured information.
      I want to be able to receive their number
      via email so my customers can contact
      these leads directly.
      This would really help local businesses.
      And would save us the trouble of going
      to an outside service.

    • Manuuel

      David, that’s exactly what came to my mind once I saw the video. I don’t really see any problems creating these fields directly in LeadPages as it talkes to the major email marketing providers through their API.

      I am using Unbounce with Mailchimp integration and the form is created WITHIN Unbounce NOT Mailchimp which makes it easy peasy. The fields are created automatically via Mailchimp API.

      Missing features like putting people into subgroups (Mailchimp) or the integration of multiple email provider accounts (for clients) or simple stuff like that is holding me back from really using LeadPages…and it’s a GREAT product – It just needs some tuning 😉

    • Manuel

      Why was my comment deleted?

  • Troy

    We will use this feature because we have a network of dealers and we need to know the prospects zip code to determine the correct dealer for the prospect.

    • Awesome! Please do share how you end up using this please.

  • alex

    Pleaseeeeeeee Put this on our webinar pages for sms or voice broadcast follow up

  • HowToWebinar

    Just tested this with an OAP opt-in form for a webinar registration which has an optional SMS reminder. Been waiting for this option in Leadpages – it’s been the one feature missing for webinar registrations … (since we get a much higher percentage attendance rate if we send out an SMS reminder prior to the presentation)

  • Taavi

    Would love this feature fo the sales page templates.

    • Hum… so just to be clear, you’re looking for the sales pages to not really generate sales, but to generate opt-ins instead?

  • Uri Lederman

    in the recent famous words in IM —–> BOOOM 🙂 i wish people would stop saying that already.. but BOOOOM… 🙂

    • Yeah, the whole “boom” thing is getting out of hand. But I’m still glad that it applies here.

  • Bill Tozzo

    I would to have Lead Pages create small optin boxes for sidebars, footers, bottom of posts, etc.

  • Alex

    Don’t laugh at me now… but where can I find the phone number if I decide to collect it? Will it be stored somewhere inside aweber?

    • Kerwin McKenzie

      Hi Alex. You will have to add that field to form you create in Aweber. Right now I assume the Aweber form you set up has just email address or both a name and an email address.

      • Kerwin is right. You create the form in AWeber and then go to the user record in AWeber to get the phone number.

    • We’re not laughing at you :-). But Kerwin did a good job of answering the question below.

  • Gerren

    Seeing that I have a local service oriented business, not having this option has been the thing that has kept me from using leadpages….although I’m already a customer. I’ll be able to get a ROI now. Thanks!!!

  • This is really slick! I can’t wait to add it to my other lead pages. It will help me track the source of optins, especially since I can add extra code to the body of the form. Huge business building benefit here!

  • Jeff Nabers

    awesome! my only suggestion is to keep rolling it out to the rest of the templates at whatever pace is nice and stable 🙂

  • can we create optin forms like the one you have under this post? The “joing over 35,000….”

    • Yes you can. Just just need to use them with pages created with LeadPages.

  • Thomas Stahl

    Great! Please add this feature on Webinar-Pages!

    • Coming 🙂 BUT please also know that you can use all opt-in pages in LeadPages as webinar registration pages.

  • Katie B.

    Hey guys, thanks for listening and putting in these fields. I would love to see this being done for an event page- we hold workshops (live, in-person) and have registration and follow-up processes that require calling them, so we need their phone numbers and addresses (although addresses aren’t as vital as their phone number). This is the only thing we do not use our LeadPage account for as this wasn’t available.. it would be absolutely seamless to be able to give some information about our event like we do for our webinars with the webinar pages. One step at a time though, thanks guys!

    • Katie… great! Can you send us an example of your favorite event page and we’ll make it happen!

  • Kerwin McKenzie

    Neat feature Clay. I just wrote a post about what fields to collect and that it depends on your business needs, so this fall right into place.

    One feature I think would be good and perhaps its been requested, is to embed the forms into an email. I’m assuming that we can, if we take the code generated at the end when the form is created and just place it in the email, but am not certain nor have I tried it. I mean, what about sizing, etc.

  • Niko Imeraj

    Hi Clay

    This is an awesome feature for us doing lead generation for actual physical product sales.

    I am happy I choose to support you guys from the beginning 🙂

    Here’s a suggestion though;

    Let us be able to use Wufoo forms on our leadpages, Clay!

    Wufoo is great for simply created, but rulebased forms with excellent form-entry reporting options.

    Plus they already support auto-integration with Autoresponders/CRM’s/SMS services and other relevant 3rd party services.

    Unbounce recently announced Wufoo integration – would love to move our leadgeneration forms to Leadpages though.

    The Wufoo team loves their API partners aswell – you should reach out to them.

    UPDATE: by the way, using Wufoo we are even able to take freakin’ payments directly on a Leadpage!!!

  • Jose Almeida

    Hi this is fantastic. This was one of the reasons I subscribed. I look foward to this being expanded to other templates.

  • Would be cool to integrate at the API level to Call Loop so I can send SMS blasts on webinar registration pages. 🙂

  • Chris

    Have any new templates been given this feature yet? I need one that supports video. The Charles Kirkland video squeeze page would be good for starters since it’s the highest converter.
