We’re just wild for Infinite Monkeys over here at Wufoo - Welcome!
Great Black Speakers (GBS), an online Atlanta-based speakers bureau, was founded in January 2007 by Lawrence Watkins, CEO. Great Black Speakers’ motto? Shaping Minds One Speech at a Time. His company is committed to “providing excellence, reliability, and an elevated measure of integrity on a daily basis” by helping universities, corporations, and high schools find high quality, African-American speakers for different events.
GBS currently has over 200 speakers that are a part of their bureau and have worked with many colleges and universities nation-wide. In collaborating closely with their clients and speakers, they ensure that the speakers they represent are not only well trained in their craft but are able to deliver their talks in a variety of environments: workshops, seminars, panel discussions and conferences.
In order for this to happen successfully, the GBS team relies on a powerful and easy to use application to help deliver great speakers to their clients, and all of us at Wufoo are pretty thrilled that we can help them accomplish their mission of inspiring, educating and motivating others. Lawrence was kind enough to take some time to share his experiences with us.
Hands down, Wufoo is the most important business app that I use for my company, Great Black Speakers. Wufoo allows us to easily collect and source information to make it most useful for different members of the GBS team. Here are our top five reasons why we love all things Wufoo:
1) Wufoo Ensures that We Ask the Prospect The Right Questions with Dynamic Forms
With Wufoo, we can use the same contact form to talk to three distinct groups of people who reach out to us: organizations who want to book a speaker, potential speakers, and the media. For each of those groups we need to collect specific information to service them. In less than 20 minutes, I was able to set up the form below— without a programmer— to accomplish this task:
2) Wufoo Allows Us to Easily Notify the Right Salespeople When a New Lead Comes In
In the past, data collection was a bottleneck within our system because there was a delay between when a prospect contacted us and when that information was forwarded to the proper salesperson. Through their rules feature, Wufoo automatically sends the prospect to the person on our team assigned to handle that type of lead:
3) Following Up with Prospective Leads is Simple with Wufoo’s Highrise Integration
One of the new cool tools that I have discovered is Zapier, which allows for business apps that normally do not talk to each other to communicate. I’ve set up Zaps to automatically create new deals within our CRM, Highrise, when new leads come into the system after completing our Contact Form. This makes it easy for our salespeople to know which leads to followup on and also allows me to manage the sales pipeline more effectively:
4) Wufoo’s Integration with Chargify Allows Us to Easily Accept Subscription Payments
One of our revenue sources is to charge a subscription fee to new speakers who want to use GBS to grow their brands. In the past, we had used PayPal to manage this process but I felt like I needed a PhD in order to setup and search contacts with PayPal! Thankfully, Wufoo integrates nicely with Chargify, which makes it super easy for us to sign up new speakers and analyze cash flow through their reports.
5) Our Email Subscription Rates Have Increased by 30% with Wufoo’s Mailchimp Integration
Like many other small businesses, I use Mailchimp to handle sending out emails to my audience. Mailchimp offers their own forms that you can embed into your site. However, you have less control over the look and feel of them. Wufoo solves this problem and more— I can embed forms into my site that then pushes notifications directly into Mailchimp. Also, I included a check box asking individuals to sign up for our email list right on our contact forms. Because of this, GBS increased email subscriptions by about 30%!
Bottom line: Wufoo makes my life easier because it provides a hub to all of our customers’ data while making it super easy to connect all the of the spokes within our system. The best part is that Wufoo makes it incredibly simple for you to set up on your own. Their support team is also super helpful! Try them out if you haven’t done so already!
We love hearing that we’re making lives easier! Thanks so much, Lawrence!
Hello fellow Wufooers! Last year, the Wufoo Team went all out working with our brothers and sisters at SurveyMonkey to migrate a number of our services to their super snazzy infrastructure and billing platform. With these improvements now in place and all our vegetables eaten, we’re ready to hire some new friends to help us work on dessert! Today, we’re looking to add two talented and passionate individuals to come work with our awesome team to take Wufoo to the next level.
Both of these positions come with a lot of responsibility, but also a freedom to design and build for an audience unlike any other. If you’re looking to work alongside some of the very best at creating delightful experiences on the web, please consider applying and joining our team!
Product Manager (Palo Alto, CA)
Did you know that Leonardo da Vinci and Machiavelli were friends back in the day? Yeah, they tried to steal a river once. Our ideal candidate for this position embodies the spirit of their friendship, ingenuity and audacity to change the world. Like them, you’ll need to be a true Renaissance man (or woman) and be able to juggle both the practical requirements of our unique technology stack and the hearts and minds of our beloved users.
Product Managers at Wufoo also have a proud tradition of leading their teams not through written specs, but inspirational design. That means you’ll need to show you have a good eye, a strong sense of taste and a background in user experience and design. People who can wireframe and build their own rapid prototypes will be most desired.
Web Application Developer (Palo Alto, CA)
Engineers at Wufoo are a special breed. They tend to be part Nikola Tesla and part Disney Imagineer. We like them to be experts in their field, surprisingly humble and love what they do in a way they cannot hide it.
We’re looking for people with a penchant for innovative front-end engineering that pushes the envelope of what web apps can do while putting smiles on peoples faces. You should be able to gracefully balance performance, elegance and wit both in your code and in your interactions with our users and fellow teammates.
About Working for Wufoo and SurveyMonkey
You won’t meet a nicer group of talented people. Plus, we offer competitive salaries, medical/dental benefits, PTO, 401k, paid holidays, and equity compensation. As always, we’re an equal opportunity employer, meaning there’s no reason you shouldn’t apply if you think you have what it takes. Hope to hear from you soon!
Say goodbye to mountains of paper and lost documents and say hello to DocVerify’s amazing electronic signature solution.

To Use This Integration
Create a form on Wufoo that will capture the data you need to send the legal document – such as first name, last name and email address.
Follow these step by step instructions or watch the video below on how to integrate that form into your DocVerify account:
Big thanks to Darcy Mayer and the team at DocVerify for their work on this integration! If you’re looking to integrate your web app with Wufoo, check out our Ultimate Guide to Integrating with Wufoo.
Hey there, hi there, ho there folks! We’re already into the second week of the brand spanking New Year, can you believe it? In keeping with the spirit of all things shiny and fresh, we’re super stoked to bring you the latest scoop in Wufoo payment integrations. We’ve partnered with the amazing (and brainy) folks over at Braintree, who are providing elegant and hassle-free online payment solutions. Great design and painless implementation? We can definitely dig and we’re excited to share this with all of you.
Braintree offers instant underwriting so you can be up and ready to start taking credit card payments in about the same amount of time it’d take you to catch the closing credits of a Young Justice episode. And again, it’s hassle-free to get started- just sign up and you’ll be on your way.
Another feature that stands out with Braintree are their international payment options. In addition to the US and Canadian dollar, Braintree can process payments in over 130 currencies and is available for online companies in all of Europe and Australia. Getting into that many different types of currencies can take months to start the integration process so we love that Braintree is able to provide this. Going global with your forms and seeking an international payment solution? This may be your answer!
Braintree also offers a simple pricing structure of 2.9% and $0.30 per transaction. There aren’t any pesky sign up fees, credit card storage fees, or contract terms. Due to Braintree’s instant approval process, most merchants are approved within minutes and able to process payments immediately. To find out more, visit this helpful FAQ.
Braintree has helped thousands of other startup companies get their feet off the ground with their unique payment solutions and we can’t wait to see what you’ll come up with.
Also, you spoke and we listened— We’re reviewing the possibility of expanding recurring billing features for some of our payment providers in 2013 so stay tuned!
Huge thanks goes out to the awesome brains over at Braintree for inviting us to participate: Jenna Wyer, James Hyde, Jen Busenbark, Hammer, Emma Peterson, Michael Nussbaum, Eric Nelson and Matt Sommer. Over on our end, we’ve gotta thank Larry Kuang, the engineer who made most of the magic happen.
Here’s to Wufoo and Braintree!

Boom - easy event registration and check-in all available with MobiCheckin!

If you can believe it- we barely can ourselves- 2012 is almost through and with just a few weeks left on the calendar, we figured now was as good a time as any to take a look back at what’s been done and what’s to come both at Wufoo and at SurveyMonkey.
Way back at the beginning of the year, we were super excited to introduce to you all our spiffed-up redesign of the Wufoo site. Thanks again to all of you who took the time to scope it out back in January and for the awesome comments and feedback. 2012 was also the year we got to say ¡Hola! In addition to the 46 different languages that were always available to your form users- our marketing, support and application could now be delivered to our Spanish-speaking friends. And we of course can’t forget our second ever BarCamp Tour of 2012! We hope to take BarCamp out for a spin yet again so keep an eye out for us next year.
Springtime at Wufoo brought forth not just spring showers (just kidding, rain on the Peninsula??) but some snazzy updates in browser support charts for HTML 5 and some nifty partnerships to help keep your CRM nice and neat and to maintain that offline mobile forms magic. And them hazy days of summer brought us more integration superfriends to hang with like Mojaba and GroSocial, Zapier and Raven.
Gearing up for the holiday push at Wufoo meant adding yet another amazing payment integration for our users with the introduction of Stripe and last, but not least, we were proud to share the news that SurveyMonkey landed on Wired’s Top 10 List of Best Tech Companies to Work For- woohoo and it’s true.
Our own Kevin Hale has been putting in long man hours (or monkey hours for that matter) on SurveyMonkey’s Create Update, an exciting revamp of a classic in survey creation design. We hope you’ll get as much of a kick out of the look and feel to it as we have. More to come on the Create Update in 2013 and don’t worry, if you’ve missed out on any of SurveyMonkey’s product updates from the past year, you need only look here and get caught up.
From all of us at Wufoo, we thank you for another fantastic year. See you on the flip-side of 2013!
We here at Wufoo are thrilled that the hard-working folks at SurveyMonkey- our brothers and sisters in building great products and providing amazing service to our awesome customers- landed on the list of Wired Magazine’s top ten tech companies to work at. The Wufoo Team couldn’t agree more!

Hey, hey hustlers and go-getters! We’ve got some exciting news for those of you making money through Wufoo payment forms. To date, we’ve already helped our users collect over $100 million through our payment integrations. And in an effort to keep that money mojo flowing, we’re delighted to announce a new partnership with the smart people at Stripe, who are building one of the simplest developer-friendly ways to accept credit card payments on the web.
Before this new integration with Stripe, if you wanted to use the best version of our payment forms with our integrated payment checkout interface, which allowed you to process credit cards without having to redirect people off your website, you had to use a merchant provider that was going to put you through the paces in regards to paperwork, documentation and time.
Thanks to Stripe’s elegant APIs, instant underwriting and next generation infrastructure, our team got to focus on what we do best and offer the most streamlined way to leverage online payments through our beautifully designed web forms. Now, you can start collecting payments almost immmediately from inside Wufoo. If you don’t have a Stripe account, we can help you create a temporary one and guide you through the process of getting it activated without having to leave the comfort of our app. With just a few clicks, Wufoo + Stripe will put fund collection at your fingertips, help you avoid the hidden fees associated with page redirects, and provide complete pricing transparency.
Our new integration with Stripe, along with our growing arsenal of existing plug-ins for websites and CMS tools, makes collecting funds faster and easier than ever. Once you’ve enabled Stripe payments on your Wufoo form, simply embed it into any website, and watch the Benjamins roll in. We think this is going to be a game changer and we’re really proud to be a part of it.
Many thanks go out to the entire Stripe team for inviting us to participate in their new Stripe Connect program. Those guys know how to write an API. Specific shout outs go out to Patrick Collison, Ross Boucher, Billy Alvarado, Richard Burton and Ludwig Pettersson. Props for making the magic happen on our end should be given to our own Chris Campbell and Kate Brennan. Wufoo and Stripe – Semper Innovatus!

Once upon a midnight dreary, I pondered CRM theory,
Over the confusion of leads to track and store.
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
Raven integrated with Wufoo and said, “Nevermore!”.
We’re happy to announce that Raven has launched a new Contact Relationship Manager (CRM) tool for SEO and social media that incorporates leads from Wufoo.
Whether the goal is SEO link building, social media influencer outreach or lead followup, it’s now easier to manage and track those relationships with Raven and Wufoo. Perhaps with Raven, Mr. Poe’s Lenore would not have been lost.
To Use This Integration
Create a form on Wufoo or add one to your account from our gallery, including the appropriate lead information for your Raven campaigns.
Follow this instructional video on how to integrate that form into your Raven account:
Big thanks to Arienne Holland and the team at Raven for their hard work on this integration! If you’re interested in integrating your web app with Wufoo, check out our Ultimate Guide to Integrating with Wufoo.
