Top 6 Mistakes To Avoid While designing Web Forms
Creating a New Web Form What are the mistakes
that you should not make while building a web
form? The web forms are known as an integral
part of the web design. Through web forms you
can store the information of your potential
2
customers in a very easy way. But if the design
of your web form looks complicated or hard to
navigate, your visitors might abandon the page
and switch to other websites. This way you could
miss an opportunity to acquire new customers and
the conversion rate of your website might
decrease. When designers create the web forms,
they need to consider the user experience that
the web form might deliver to its visitors. If a
web form requires to pay great attention while
filling it, there is a higher chance that people
might skip it and look for other easier web
forms. It is high time to look at your web form
from a typical users approach and find out the
elements that turns them off. Make changes to
those elements and monitor the results. If the
number of person who fills out the form does not
increase even after making changes, you should
consider taking help of a professional web design

should avoid while designing a web form.

1. Making poor rules for input validation When
you display your form on the desktop screen of
your visitors, you need to describe clearly
whatever your input validation rules are. If we
take an example of the US phone numbers you
should not make it compulsory for your visitors
to enter parentheses and hyphens between the
numbers. By making strict rules for input
validation you might be stopping the genuine
users to enter their information who are
habitual to using different formats. If you dont
want to ruin their user experience, make sure
you display some hints on the web form that
tells users to enter certain information in a
certain way. Besides this you can also make your
users understand by showing an example about how
to enter their information in a specific
format. When you visit the websites of some top
organizations in the world you will find that
their application forms are designed in a very
simple and clear manner. If they need you to
enter certain information in a certain way they
will highlight that important information to make
you understand. And many of them will make you
understand through an example how certain
information should be entered in the web
form. If you want to use these types of web
forms in your website it would be better to hire
a good web design company. They will create an
easy and understandable web form for your
visitors that will store their information and
provide it to you. However you can also approach
us for such tasks as we have extensive
experience in web design and development. We are

  • Los Angeles that is specialized in website
    building, website designing, SEO, and internet
    marketing.
  • Not using sliced fields properly
  • Sliced fields can work well when a visitor has to
    enter a particular information like date and all
    whose format is commonly known. You can just
    give a hint to your visitors about where the date
    and month has to be entered then they will fill
    the information correctly. But if you slice
    fields for entering the phone number, it might
    confuse your users that how should they enter
    the required information. Its because there are
    so many different formats for entering the phone
    number and your visitors might not be familiar
    with your specified format.
  • Not including labels for the form fields
  • You might avoid including labels in your web
    forms to save space but it is very important to
    include it. It makes your visitors remember what
    information they were supposed to enter in a
    particular field. When you dont include labels
    in the web forms and use only placeholder, it
    gets disappeared when users start typing in the
    particular field. For this reason they usually
    forget the label and get confused about what
    they were supposed to enter. Also most of the
    potential visitors understand labels are better
    than placeholders.
  • When customers start filling information in a
    particular field without labels, the problem
    arises when they type any incorrect information
    mistakenly. They have to delete all the
    characters in a particular field

5
to see what information they are supposed to
enter and they need to type the correct
information in that field again. This process
increases their time of form filling and they
make a bad impression about that particular
website. If you dont want to ruin the user
experience of your potential visitors, we would
recommend to ask a web design company to create a
well-structured web form for you. This will
increase the number of your potential customers
who are interested in your products or services.
However, you can also speak to our designers
about building an engaging web form for you. We
keep in mind to include the labels near the form
field while designing a web form for your website
and display hint in the placeholder. This way
your visitors better understand the information
that they are supposed to enter in a particular
field. You should understand that we are your
true digital partner who will stick around you
in any problematic situation and resolve it
ASAP. 4. Not using standard components in web
form There are various components that are used
these days in web forms but not all of them are
created according to the actual requirement.
Thats why whenever you try to use any new
features in your web form, you need to make sure
it is going to work in older devices and
browsers as well. In such a situation using
standard components in your web form is
considered to be ideal because you will be almost
sure that it will work in different devices and
browsers. One of the biggest advantages of using
standard components in your web form is that it
supports different languages of different regions.

5. Opting-in your users by default One of the
common mistakes that many business owners make to
their website is opting-in their users by
default. But this kind of default opt-in setting
should not be done by web owners and leave it to
users to decide whether they want to opt-in or
not. Give them a chance to make their own
decisions instead of making an automatic opt-in
process for them. When someone uses automatic
opt-in trick to acquire large number of
potential customers, it does more harm than good
to their website. When users get any messages or
notifications from the website they tend to
ignore it, thinking that they have never opted
for such messages or notifications. But when
website owners ask their users to opt-in, they
might accept the request thinking that it will be
useful for them. However, some users tend to
ignore the request if they are not interested in
any offering of the website. You can get an
effective opt-in form designed by the innovative
designers if you want to provide a great user
experience to your visitors. Being one of the
top web design companies in Los Angeles, we will
make sure while designing your opt-in form that
it compel maximum number of users to opt-in your
particular service. With stunning websites, we
also provide other services to our clients like
web development, website hosting, search engine
optimization and brand building.

  • 6. Not allowing users to sign in via social media
    accounts
  • If you want to enhance the user experience of
    your website in the simplest possible way, allow
    your users to sign in through their social media
    accounts. It will simplify the entire sign up
    process for your users who want to interact with
    your website. You also save a little time of
    your users by not asking them to fill out a form
    that describes their identity. They like the way
    of signing up instantly with one click of a
    button instead of filling out a bunch of form
    fields. However you should also make sure to not
    give your users the social login as the only
    option to login to your site as some users might
    not want to use their social media accounts.
    Besides this, you should also create a section
    for email and explain to your users what you will
    do and what not when you access their Gmail or
    other accounts.
  • One of the best strategies to build effective web
    forms for your website is to make sure it
    communicates well with your users. Few simple
    steps that you should follow for creating the
    best web form and providing good user experience
    are
  • Display the label even when users click in the
    form field.
  • Avoid using terms like Invalid while displaying
    any error message.
  • Provide your users more detail about how should
    they enter information

  • However, if you make any of the above mistakes
    while creating your web form, you might end up
    making annoying web form for your users and
    ruining their experience.
  • Every website owner wants to generate best leads
    with effective web forms but they make some
    mistakes and that leads to acquiring less number
    of potential customers. Now when you know the
    mistakes people usually make while creating an
    engaging web form, you should make changes to
    your web form at the earliest to encourage a
    large number of visitors to fill the form. If
