If you have Australian email lists a website then at some point in time you’ve probably wanted to get feedback from your visitors. You certainly could put your email address on the site but you would risk getting put on bulk email lists and getting a lot of bulk email (spam) messages.
There is a better way to get feedback off your site without putting your email on it. Putting a web form on your site that sends you an email when someone fills in the form and hits submit does it. So how do you make one of these forms? Well, if you know how to program it’s done with a script called “formmail”. Formmail is a script that will take a web form and send you the results in an email message.
But what if you’re not a programmer? In this case the best thing to do is use a Web Form to Email Service. These services do the hard part of turning your web form into an email. Some of them will even store the results for you in a Microsoft Excel Format.
The benefits of such a service is that they let you design your form exactly how you want. You simply put the form on your website (or link to it) and you get the emails. You don’t need to do any programming or server configuration. The Form hosting service does it all.
You can get creative with these services to and use them for more than just a simple contact form. For example: Why not try to collect some demographic data from your visitors like which country they are from? Or are they a new prospect to your site or an existing customer? The possibilities are endless.
