Want to track your Formidable Forms conversions to see which forms are most loved on your site? With Google Analytics, you can track your forms conversions, but it’s got quite a learning curve for beginners. Fortunately, there’re smart tools like MonsterInsights to help you set up forms tracking and other advanced events trackings easily in Google Analytics.
In this article, we’ll show you how to track your Formidable Forms conversions with Google Analytics the easy way: using MonsterInsights.
Setting Up Formidable Forms Tracking in Google Analytics
Formidable Forms is the most advanced WordPress form builder plugin available on the market. The plugin lets you create advanced forms like quizzes, surveys, payment forms, registration forms, directories, job board listings, etc. easily. It’s one of the best form builder plugins for WordPress.
You can set up Formidable Forms tracking with Google Analytics in 2 ways:
- By Setting Up Event Goals in Google Analytics – The Manual Way
- By Using MonsterInsights – The Automatic (Easy) Way
If you choose the first method, you’ll need to set up event goals in Google Analytics’ interface and define your form conversions as event goals. This method is the far less user-friendly approach. If you aren’t a developer, it’ll take a lot of your time and effort to learn, or take a lot of your money to hire a developer.
Whereas the second method is speedy and effortless. It takes just a few steps to set up forms tracking in Google Analytics using MonsterInsights. All you need to do to set up forms tracking is to install the MonsterInsights Forms addon in your WordPress dashboard. Then, MonsterInsights handles the rest automatically.
