After putting our blogs and startups online, testing everything we was then ready to starting receive leads contacts for project development. We are growing up our service capacity, ramping up and scaling os customized customer service.
Putting contact forms on sites was an easy task years ago, but we are now surrounded by tons of bots, simple contact forms can receive a lot of spam, besides annoying it can make tedious for fast response receiving notifications of spams.
After testing the Google reCaptcha, with great results for spam control, we are moving for a new and simple solutions, Honey Pots, bots are dumb and putting an hide field for then is a trick way to prevent it. We are using 3 wordpress plugins for our contact form:
- Contact Form 7
- Contact Form 7 Honey Pot
- Contact Form 7 Database
- F5 Sites Bug & Correction Plugin
The last one was custom made to “unify” all contacts from multiple domains under the same table, now we can use the same contact form on multiple sites, speeding up development and launch of services, centralizing contacts from multiple sources.
