How To Make Sure Your Forms Are Being Received
A marketer’s worst nightmare is when they send traffic and potential leads to a website but their client is not receiving the forms that are filled out.
We have run into this issue a few years ago. Short of asking our clients “hey did you receive this lead” after ever form fill-out, we didn’t always know if our clients received the leads coming in. Now, thanks to SendGrid, we can be confident leads are going to our clients’ inboxes!
If you aren’t a web developer, feel free to send this email over to your developer and they can set this up for you!
