How to Maintain an Ideal and Error Free Contact us Page?
Contact us page is the most vital part of a blog or website. So every webmaster should take extra care about the contact us page.
Blog or website without contact us page can’t imagine. And most cases visitor think of the blog for spamming. Because spammer doesn’t share any contact email for visitors.
6 Tips and Tricks for a Rocking Contact Us Page
If your blog or website contains critical or complex articles then visitors must try to contact you for more clarification, besides this, if anyone wants to submit a Guest article then your contact email must be published for visitors. But often we make some mistake in case of contact us page. So I am going to explain how to keep the contact on our page error-free.
1. Ideal Space for Contact Form or link
If you are planning to use a contact form then ideal places for placing contact form in Sidebar, Footer or you can use the floating contact form. Besides this, you can simply add the link to the contact us page in the menu bar.
2. Create Separate Contact Us Page
Contact form is not always preferred by webmaster and visitors. Sometimes your template or theme has doesn’t have enough space, in this case, you must create separate contact us page. This is not only a matter of space but also it looks professional. In addition, you add extra information to your contact page.
3. Avoid Spam
Webmaster often publishes their email address directly which may use by a spammer. Often I see BloggerSpice’s email submitted by the spammer to RSS email submission but fools don’t know that without my confirmation RSS won’t send me any email updates. So be aware of spammer and use the contact form instead of the email address.
In some cases, the robot collects the email address automatically. So you can write email as name [AT] domain.com instead of firstname.lastname@example.org.
4. Check for Broken Contact Form
In the case of using the contact form, we often use a third party contact service but this does not always work perfectly and smoothly. As far as I can remember, before releasing Google’s official contact form I used to with a popular third party contact form service.
But anyhow those contact service was terminated their service for a certain period of time. But they didn’t give me any notification. As a result for 2 months, I didn’t receive an email from my readers. And when I check my contact form then I saw the contact form is broken.
And I can write an email in contact form but it doesn’t send it to my email address. So make sure your third party contact form is ok and At least check it once every month.
5. Always update information on the contact us page
Most webmasters create a contact form once and don’t visit a second time. But we should update information on the contact us page. Suppose you have announced something about some rules then you should add the information on the contact us page. Suppose you will go on a vacation or out of town for any important work and in this time visitors sending email but you are not in touch with your blog or website. As a result, visitors may stop contacting you and leave your site forever. So it’s better to leave a short message on the Contact us page about your leave.
Or suppose you have recently stopped publishing Guest the article then you can mention if you contact form for stop receiving unnecessary email from Guest article writer.
6. Share contact us page link in Your Social Media Accounts
For making your way of contact easier you can share your contact us page link or email address in your social media profile. Webmaster always hasn’t enough time to sign in to all his/her social media profile. In this case, you can share your contact us page link or email address on the social media page.
I often face some problem that often I receive an email in BloggerSpice’s Facebook account but I don’t log in to my Facebook account regularly. So I have added my contact us page link to contact me directly. As a result, now most of the email I am receiving in my email account and replying to my readers’ messages constantly.
