Adding Captcha to Your Forms

Are you receiving a bunch of spammy leads and unwanted marketing requests? We get these as well. Online marketing will always produce others doing the same. Regardless of the intention behind it, these aren’t always welcome. There’s a way to mitigate the number of unwanted leads by using a captcha field so your site automatically stops bots from completing the form. It won’t stop all the leads, such as those manually entering the details on the form.

Adding CAPTCHA is a great way to reduce spam leads on your Carrot site. In this tutorial, we’re going to show you how to add CAPTCHA to your Carrot forms!

It is important to note that adding CAPTCHA can reduce conversions on your lead forms, so it’s not recommended to put CAPTCHA on any lead generating form, especially the main call-to-action form in your hero section or on your landing pages.  There are a considerable number of people that simply won’t check that box. Adding CAPTCHA to a Contact Us form or Info form is not a concern though!!!

The Tutorial:

1. Go to the site’s “dashboard” for the form you want to edit:

 

2. Select “Content”

 

 

3. Click on Forms, and then select the form you want to add CAPTCHA to:

 

4. Select “Advanced Fields”, Click “CAPTCHA” and update your form.

And voila! You should now have CAPTCHA on your lead form!
