There are some amazing and enlightening widgets available for free on Jotform.com.

They had everything form a form that will give you a drop down menu for ALL the cities in China to a widget that will offer Chuck Norris jokes!

  • To just modernize your forms,

I’m not affiliated with Jotform but I’m pretty impressed with their list of widgets.

Among the many options available are:

Voice Recorder, where people an leave voice recordings on your contact page. They also have off-beat widgets like Comedy Central and Ted Talks.

I found widgets that will do E-signatures, track referrals and do embedding.

You can even put your Linked in file digital card on a form.

I was surprised at how many cool, smaller Video Hosts I hadn’t thought of like Wistia, Animoto and Video Detector. If you’re looking to get more coverage for your videos, for your SEO and just getting a larger footprint out there, this could be of value to you.

I also found options for putting music into your forms or sound files, there is Spotify, Audio Boo and Official FM.

It’s really good way for you to get a pulse on the digital community and what the emerging platforms are.
