Forms are an ideal way to get zero-party data from your customers (read more about the importance of zero-party data in our blog). On one hand, you can use simple forms to get contact details and information about your customers; on the other hand, you can use a form to directly start a campaign, e.g. as a registration for a webinar with automated reminder emails and participation confirmations.
In this tutorial, you'll learn how to create a simple first form in Friendly Automate and embed the code into your website.
