UX Design for Form Validation and Visitor Personas – For Further Study

The Ultimate UX Design of Form Validation – Designmodo

Forms are a key component of Landing Pages (in addition to Offer, Image, Trust and Proof). When a visitor considers completing a form — for lead gen, to subscribe or to purchase — it is the moment of truth.

So, it is sad that so many forms work to chase these ready customers and prospects away.

This article will give you some things to consider as you guide development of your website forms in these areas:

    1. Right time of informing about problems/success
    2. Right place for validation messages
    3. Right color
    4. Clear language

It should.
