Approximate read time: 8 minutes
Typeform’s made a name for itself thanks to user-friendly one-question-at-a-time surveys, aka conversational forms, that seriously boost completion rates.
While we can’t deny Typeform is a great lead-generation tool and form builder, the platform has its limitations. You can really only create one kind of questionnaire and even its paid plans limit the number of Typeform responses you can collect.
That means Typeform gets expensive fast. 💸
Fortunately, there are a lot of good Typeform alternatives out there that let you build forms with the same look-and-feel as Typeform surveys without as many drawbacks.
Today, we’re going to show you how you can use the best Typeform WordPress plugin to make Typeform-style surveys in WordPress. Not one of the 450+ million websites running on WordPress? No worries, we’ll give you some solutions too!
Here are 5 of the best Typeform examples and how you can recreate them without using Typeform:
Before we jump right into examples, let’s take a minute to talk about Typeform and why you may want to change to a different survey solution.
So you don’t want to use Typeform?
There are a lot of reasons you may not want to use Typeform: response limits, cost, lacking WordPress integration, a single style of survey, no real-time data analysis… 😖
But there are probably also things you really like about Typeform too.
You’re surely a fan of their famous one-question-at-a-time quiz format and love the amount of survey templates available. Their branching questions and conditional logic are super useful too. And we've got to admit, Typeform survey landing pages look great.
Well, we’ve got good news! There’s another tool you can use that comes with all the perks of Typeform (and more) and none of the limitations. It’s called Formidable Forms.
Formidable Forms offers:
- Customizable survey landing pages ✅
- Question-by-question format (aka conversational forms) ✅
- Unlimited responses ✅
- Real-time data analysis ✅
- Export responses to PDF ✅
Along with these fantastic features, Formidable also lets you create Typeform-like surveys directly in WordPress. That’s right, you can make the same stylish and engaging conversational forms without using Typeform!
Not on WordPress? You may want to consider switching to the internet’s most popular content management system or CMS. WordPress powers more than 450+ million websites worldwide. ⚡ And it’s that popular for a reason.
WordPress offers all kinds of security benefits, development opportunities, easy-to-use no-code extensions, and, should you ever need help running your website, you won’t have any trouble finding a WordPress developer to lend a hand.
Enough talking! Let’s see some surveys!
Top Typeform survey examples
1. Contact form
Instead of a typical contact form with name, email, and message all in one big block, this Typeform survey example points users to the right person while still having a pleasing one-question-per-page format.
Let’s take a closer look at the components of this Typeform contact form.
Here are the form fields used in the example:
- Email address
- Phone number
There’s also a multiple-choice question field that uses conditional logic.
Here’s a similar form we made in Formidable Forms. Pretty neat, don’t you think?
Just like in Typeform, you can personalize the design of your contact form in Formidable; add images and videos, include your logo, and change the fonts and colors to fit your branding.
Unlike Typeform, Formidable Forms never puts their branding on your content. If you use Typeform, you’ll have to pay at least $49/month to remove Typeform branding.

2. Customer satisfaction survey
Customer satisfaction surveys are an essential tool for any business. They help you understand what your customers like about your products or services, and what you can improve on.
We like this Typeform survey example because it makes it painless for customers to offer their input. The star-rating questions make it quick for users to answer and don’t require too much brain power either, meaning you’re more likely to get responses.
Want to make a similar customer satisfaction survey? Just add fields for basic customer information, such as name, email, and phone number. Then, create Likert scale questions or use star ratings to ask customers about their experience with your product or service.
At the end, be sure to include an open-ended question so customers can provide additional feedback.
Here’s what our version looks like in Formidable Forms.
We kept the design quite simple, but you can always add images, change up the colors, or customize the fonts to make it more eye-catching.
🔎 Looking for the gold standard for feedback forms? This Net Promoter Score (NPS) survey template is exactly what you need.
3. Product recommendation quiz
Product recommendation quizzes are a great way to engage with your audience and help them find the products that best meet their needs.
To make a product recommendation quiz, start by identifying the key features and benefits of your products. Then, create questions that ask the user about their needs and preferences, and use conditional logic to show different questions and results based on their answers.
For example, if you sell skincare products, your quiz might include questions about the user's skin type, concerns, and preferences for natural or fragrance-free products. Based on their answers, the quiz would recommend specific products that best meet their needs.
👉 Here's the product recommendation quiz template we used for this example.
4. Feedback survey
Whether you’re an event planner or want to know what visitors think of your website, feedback surveys can provide you with valuable customer insights.
This colorful Typeform template combines a lot of different types of questions to help mix it up for the user while also making it quick and easy to give you the important information you need.
So, how can you create a similar survey without using Typeform? Well, along with name fields (should you choose) and star rating questions, try to include some image questions as well to find out how customers heard about you or what their needs are.

5. Registration or intake form
Save yourself tons of time and paperwork by going paperless with online registration, onboarding, and intake forms!
Whether you run a sports league or want to bring in new vendors for your business, a conversational registration form following this Typeform survey example makes staying organized easy. And it offers a much better user experience than big, long Google Forms.
To replicate this Typeform survey template, you’ll start by creating a conversational form with basic fields for the user’s name, contact information, and message.
Depending on your use case, you can then insert fields to collect data such as company name, website, a drop-down menu to select a specific age group or course, a datepicker for availability, and more.
See all of our registration and signup form templates that are ready and waiting for you! And again, even if the demo isn’t in the question-by-question format, it just takes one click to create a Typeform-style questionnaire from any form.
