Well it's true!
Let's talk about it in detail.
I'm sure you have been through such forms in your life as well and the old overwhelming one-page forms as well.
How did you feel when feeling those forms?
In my case, I used to quit a lot of one page forms just by looking at it. And on the other hand, I've completed filling most of the multi-step forms.
I'm sure it's the same with you and the rest of the people.
And the good news is, if you are using Formidable Forms Pro then you can make such forms too. And increase your conversion rate of course!
Okay! Let's get going!
Benefits Of Multi-step Forms
There are many benefits of a multi-step form but let's discuss the major ones.
It's not secret. We already know it because we have faced the similar situations in life. I gave you the example at the beginning.
Multi-step forms doesn't feel like a single page form. It looks easier to complete even if it's longer than a normal one page form.
You can test it for yourself. Create a form with same fields and use multi-step form for one of them.
Even though they are exactly the same form, you'll get more conversions through the multi-step form.
Less Form Abandonment
Like I said earlier, a long single page form feels very overwhelming and it is highly likely that you would not fill that form at all or at least procrastinate.
In the same way when I was signing up for Impact Radius affiliate marketplace it took me days to actually fill the complete form and sign up.
I used to get away by seeing its ugly long form.
On the other hand, I signed up for PartnerStack affiliate marketplace in the first visit.
That's the difference!
Improved User Experience
It's not that difficult to understand that it will make the form look good and easy to complete.
Multi-step forms simplifies the process and the look of the form itself, thus making it more efficient and improving the user experience.
Multi-step forms doesn't feel overwhelming or stressful!

Just like the regular forms, you can also use conditional logic for your multi-step Formidable Form as well.

You don't have to make the user fill each and every field in your form. By using conditional logic, you can make the form interactive and less stressing.
