We've got some big news. Formidable Forms has joined the WPBeginner accelerator. This means that we are partnering with Syed Balkhi, the founder of WPBeginner and cofounder of bunches of other WordPress plugins including OptinMonster, MonsterInsights, WPForms, and more.
Our team is now able to tap into the Awesome Motive network of resources to bring you results faster.
When the accelerator fund was announced, I was in a burnout. After almost 8 years of running the day-to-day of Formidable, I was losing sight of the reasons why I started. I felt like I was spending tons of time working and getting nowhere.
This was the perfect opportunity to have an experienced advisor. Someone to push me further and expect progress was just what I needed.
So we started discussing a partnership with Syed. Even though he already runs another WordPress form builder plugin, we saw a unique fit since WPForms is for beginners and Formidable is for advanced users. Together our form builder plugins can help everyone.
I am now fired back up and ready for tons of progress over the next year and beyond. There has never been a better time to be part of the Formidable Forms community.
What will happen to the Formidable Forms team?
The awesome Formidable team will continue providing you great support and continual plugin updates. We will also be growing our team and sharing a few Awesome Motive team members. This will allow us to get more done, more quickly and make progress where we need it most.
Interfacing with the Awesome Motive team has already been immensely helpful in bringing about the in-plugin addon downloads released in yesterday's Formidable update.
What's Changing on Formidable Forms?
In the coming weeks, you will likely see a new website design. And we've got lots of plans for the coming year. This partnership will help us reach our goals that have been far on the horizon, so we can bring you the absolute best and most enjoyable way to build advanced forms.
Our main goal with Formidable Forms, is to allow you to create form-based solutions without any code. The upcoming changes in Formidable will help us reach this goal, along with with careful consideration to not sacrifice the current flexibility we all love and depend on.
Are you going to change prices?
If you have an active Formidable Forms subscription, then you will be forever grandfathered into your existing plan.
As we add more features in the future, our prices will most likely be adjusted.
What's Coming Next?
Now that I'm regaining my original passion, adding laser focus, and aligning our team, changes will be coming quickly. We have been working on learning more about our amazing Formidable users in order to bring more of what you love and fix what you don't. We will be working on making every aspect of Formidable enjoyable to use, so you can build amazing solutions without big resources — and build them fast.
To our loyal fans, thank you so much for helping us get and stay motivated, and for being a part of the future of Formidable. We love your kind words and appreciate all the suggestions too.
