Tired of losing web leads from your WordPress site or blog in your email inbox? Now you can capture leads directly into Salesforce CRM using our new WordPress-to-Lead plugin.
Most contact form plugins for WordPress send web inquiries to your inbox, which is a hassle if you get a lot of valuable business leads through your website. If you inbox is anything like mine, that message gets buried in 2 days. If you are an existing Salesforce.com customer, getting your WordPress leads into Salesforce CRM involved cutting and pasting lead information from email into Salesforce.com. With WordPress-to-Lead, we hope to make lead capture from any WordPress site, much easier for Salesforce.com customers.



Creating Contact Forms with WordPress-to-Lead

WordPress-to-Lead was designed with the nontechnical WordPress user in mind – installation & configuration of WordPress-to-Lead is much easier than many of the existing contact form plugins for WordPress. All you need to do is check which form fields you want in the WordPress-to-Lead plugin control panel, and publish the form to any page or post using the shortcode [salesforce]. You can also publish a contact form to every page by enabling the WordPress-to-Lead sidebar widget. Here's a video demo on how to install and configure WordPress-to-Lead.

Why We Built WordPress-to-Lead for Salesforce CRM

WordPress-to-Lead is a huge step up from implementing our traditional Web-to-Lead forms through cutting & pasting code to your webpage, especially since WordPress has that wonderful habit of stripping out the html tags you need for the Web-to-Lead form to work. Not to mention, Web-to-Lead still needs a lot of developer TLC for it to match the look & feel of your website.

What’s even better than all that? WordPress-to-Lead is free.
