By connecting your 123FormBuilder form with a CRM such as GoHighLevel, you can smoothly transfer lead source data to the CRM and produce comprehensive sales reports.

Imagine the following example:

ChannelsSearch PaidSocial Paid
Leads5075
Sales56
Average order value$150$100
Revenue$750$600

In a previous campaign comparing Search Paid (like Google Ads) to Social Paid (like Instagram), it turned out that Social Paid pulled in a higher number of leads than Search Paid, as per the lead report.

The outcome showed that, despite Paid Social generating more leads, Paid Search brought in more revenue, as revealed by the CRM sales report. This insightful finding led to the strategic decision to allocate more resources and effort toward enhancing Paid Search campaigns.
