💡Transforming Lead Generation: XM Cloud Forms


You pour your heart into creating an amazing website, crafting compelling content, and optimizing every pixel for conversions. But at the end of the day, those visitors slipping through your digital doors without leaving a trace feel like a missed opportunity.

What if there was a way to seamlessly guide more of those casual browsers toward becoming qualified leads? To forge stronger connections and open the door for nurturing relationships that blossom into loyal customers?

Enter XM Cloud Forms - a dynamic solution promising to revolutionize how businesses connect, engage, and convert in the digital realm. This powerful tool is taking the humble web form and elevating it into a strategic asset for accelerating lead generation and growth.

The Power of Web Forms

Let's face it - web forms haven't always gotten the love they deserve. Too often, they're an afterthought rather than an intentional part of the user journey. A necessary evil for capturing data, not an opportunity to cultivate relationships.

But the reality is, thoughtfully designed web forms can be pure marketing magic. They create front-line opportunities to interact with website visitors, gather valuable insights, and facilitate conversion events like content downloads, demo requests, or e-commerce purchases.

Something as simple as an opt-in form can be the entry point for taking someone from a browser to a subscriber to a buyer.

The data backs it up. 74% of companies are leveraging web forms for lead generation, with nearly half confirming these unassuming soldiers are their highest converting tactic.

XM Cloud Forms: Elevating the Art of Connections

As more businesses lean into the power of lead capture forms, the team at Sitecore recognized an opportunity. By reimagining the experience around web forms, they could empower companies to forge even stronger bonds with digital audiences.
