> Now what business owner wouldn’t want to hear that from their customers on a daily basis, right? Well, we feel incredibly lucky to have customers who not only feel that way but tell us too. Please welcome Built With Bootstrap (BWB) to the blog–an online showcase of sites, apps and tools built with/for and on Bootstrap.

> Hello, Simon!
I’m serious when I say that Wufoo has always been there. We can’t even remember what life was like before Wufoo in fact. For over three years, online forms have been an integral part of operations.
I built BWB in an afternoon way back in 2011 just after the public launch of Bootstrap (then known as Twitter Bootstrap). We got featured on the official Bootstrap docs, leapt up onto the first page of Hacker News and got cemented into the community.
Who the heck are ya?
Built With Bootstrap is the biggest collection of sites built with the world-famous Bootstrap front-end framework. Thousands of sites have been submitted and hundreds of designers and developers return every day to check out the latest sites for inspiration and to find new tools and services.
How the heck do you use Wufoo?
So our first form was a survey to gauge designers and developers reactions to Bootstrap as a framework. This continues to be interesting, but as far as I know, no one has really done much with this data.
The most important forms for BWB on Wufoo were developed for our Featured Listings. This allows us to easily integrate payments and other parts of the process. What does this mean? Automation, automation, automation. A massive win for me personally as I still have a day job to do, hah.
How the heck have we changed the way you do business?
It’s drastically improved it. In the early days, people were submitting featured posts and I was manually going through our queue and hand-delivering a PayPal money request. A lot of these fell by the wayside.
With Wufoo, folks have a more direct payment experience and it’s clearer what we’re offering and how much it costs.
Integrations with our other key tools, like Campaign Monitor, have been essential too.
Enough with the ‘heck’ – favorite Wufoo experience?
When I first started getting people paying me through a form that only took me a few minutes to set up…that’s incredibly powerful.
> We couldn’t agree more. It’s an incredibly powerful feeling for us to be able to provide the tools our customers need to keep their businesses running the way they want. Happy customers means happy dinos here at Wufoo.
