Many page builders, like Elementor or Divi, offer contact forms for WordPress.
If you are already using one of these page builders to build your customers’ websitesn- which we have already advised against in several articles – at least you don’t need an external contact form plugin like Contact Form 7.
Unfortunately, though, this means you’re just replacing one sub-optimal solution with another sub-optimal one. Why? Because you need the premium version of these page builders to be able to create a contact form at all.
In addition, many of these page builder contact forms miss important features.
One provider lacks the essential interface to your CRM or email marketing software.With another, you cannot create multi-step forms, which you would need for lead generation.
Most of these providers don’t even cover the most basic functionalities, like being able to view all the form entries, or sending an automated email once the form is submitted. The main focus here is design.
On top of this, most of these page builder plugins are developed outside of
Germany, which can be fatal in terms of data security and the GDPR standard (we’ll get into this a bit later).
Strictly speaking, page builders are not pure contact form plugins. Creating a
WordPress contact form without a plugin might just be the solution to the problem! But most page builders are just that: plugins. With a page builder, you will certainly reduce the total number of WordPress plugins you use. But you’re still driving a Ferrari with the handbrake on.
If you ask us, neither of these options is perfect.
Fortunately, there is a very good alternative to the contact form plugins and contact form builders from Elementor, Divi, or other page builders.
