The Importance of Google Forms In Your Infographic Templates

Written by: Nadya Khoja

Aug 21, 2015

Google forms are an excellent addition to the infographic templates you create. As a continuation in the series of posts on interactive elements for your infographic designs, this post will provide you with insight on how to use Google forms in your infographics, and the benefits associated with them. First of all, let’s clarify exactly what a Google Form is (although I imagine many of you already know). A Google form is a simple to use only form that collects a range of data and pushes it to a spreadsheet. If you’re familiar with Google forms, you can check out this Google form alternative for different features and functionalities.

How do you add a Google Form to your Infographic Template?

Adding a form to your template is very simple. All you need to do is log into Venngage, and scroll down to the “Interactive” drop down on the left side of your screen. Find the Google Form widget and drag it to your editing canvas. Simply double click the widget to edit the questions you want to ask and to modify the style of the form. The same applies if you are adding and editing interactive polls in your infographic.

Why should you use Google Forms in your templates?

If you have a Venngage account, chances are you understand the importance of using infographics, not only as a tool in content marketing, but also as an excellent learning resource. Infographics perform exceptionally well on blogs, social media and in the classroom. If static images perform so well, no doubt interactive infographics perform even better, since they function as a visual portal that transports the reader to a range of other sources (when you add links and clickable icons in your templates). If this is the case, then by incorporating a function like a Google Form, that collects a range of data and inputs it into your infographic, you can learn a lot about your readers and their needs.

Let’s say you’ve just created an infographic on fitness. You’ve listed a series of different exercises for your readers to try out in order to enhance their physique. By adding a Google Form to the bottom of your infographic, you can learn from your readers what exercises worked and which didn’t, or what they would like to see more of. By doing this, you are gaining better insight on how to customize your content to the needs of your readers. This is a great way to earn their admiration and respect, because you’re giving them exactly what they desire and need.

Here is an example of how you can use a Google Form in your infographic and then embedding the form into a blog post:
