Salesforce recently launched a WordPress plugin that allows you to add a form to your blog and capture lead details in Salesforce.
The good news here is that it’s easy to install, easy to set up a form, and integrates nicely into your WordPress theme.
You also have the ability to customize the form look and feel with CSS and you can put the form in a widget for your sidebar.
The downside is that there are no custom fields, no spam protection, and you can only create one form. I’m hoping these are limitations of the initial release and future versions will have more options.
Overall, for an initial release, the Salesforce WordPress plugin is a simple way to capture leads in Salesforce from your WordPress blog. It’s easy to set up, easy to use, and Salesforce fans will find it very handy as long as you don’t need to get to complex.
