There many important parts to a perfect contact page on your website and many different things that you need to take into account as you are planning your contact page. If you do it correctly, it will yield positive results and it will achieve the results that you need it to achieve for your business.
A form to fill out: Many businesses use a contact form to gather information on their prospective clients. However, it is safe to say that not every business uses one. Some businesses feel that having the person’s phone number is enough, at least, initially. However, in those cases where the business does have a form to fill out, you should consider that a very important part of your contact page so you need to make sure that you get it right before you do anything else.
Take some security measures: In the event that you have a form on your contact page, it is necessary to put some security measures in place because you are asking other people for proprietary information. The last thing that either you or your prospect want is for private information to end up in the wrong hands. If you want to know how to determine if a page is secure, it will have “https” at the beginning of the URL. You will need to actually obtain a security certificate, which you are certain is valid.
Pay attention to the identity part of the contact page: It is really sensible to have two fields for the name (one for the first name and one for the last name). That will allow you to collect data with integrity. A single field (instead of two) will cause the eventuality of separating the first and last name at some point in the future anyway. A salutation (Mr., Mrs., Ms., etc) is a really good idea on your form because it leaves no doubt about the gender of the person who is filling out the form.
The process that you might follow is that you write some form of content, perhaps a blog, and in that content, you put at least one call-to-action. Once your reader clicks on the call-to-action, he or she will eventually arrive at your contact page. That page should be perfectly suited to your needs.
