It's one of the biggest hurdles I've seen in the business world: leaders struggling to break down their thoughts into easy, translatable ideas. I used to be guilty of this myself. When I started my company, Jotform, 16 years ago as a programmer, you can imagine all of the jargon I'd accumulated as a techie — needless to say, my first presentations were riddled with them.Read MoreAugust, 2022

Now as an entrepreneur all these years later, I often reflect on how much that experience was able to help me understand a perspective I wasn’t accustomed to.

Jotform is an important solution because it's adaptable enough to remain highly functional within rapidly changing work environments. As the way we work evolves, Jotform is able to change with the times, help people stay productive, and automate redundant workflows.

This was one of the hardest things to accept when I first founded my startup, Jotform. I thought that if I could think up every scenario, I could magically find the right solutions. But there were so many variables I had no control over — whether a client would have issues with our product or a team member would suddenly quit during our busiest season.
I’ve written before about how I believe self-awareness is key for innovation, and one of the reasons is because it allows us to overcome mental challenges and not become self-absorbed. It keeps our focus on doing what as leaders should be our top priority: the well-being of our people, and in creating a workplace that doesn’t promote superficiality over actual meaning and purpose.
Any organization that plans and/or hosts events should have a guest speaker form readily available. Jotform has a template that you can easily adapt to your needs, but the basic questions are already included.

If your restaurant offers online takeout orders, you may want to use an online form builder that can double as an ordering system and a QR code generator.

In 2021, we launched our product Jotform Tables, which we'd spent three years working on and honing. That's a lot of time in the tech world — but it didn't matter to me. What did matter was creating something that solved our user's problems.
The number-one selling point of keeping online forms beyond the pandemic has to be the overall convenience for everyone involved in your camp. Parents have enough things to worry about each day, so if you send a simple link to access their child’s registration form, it will probably be very much appreciated.
Thanks to Jotform's new customer form template, you can personalize your own in just a few clicks of a button. And yes, it's free. You have the option to add your business' logo, update the title, create a thank you page after site visitors submit, and beyond.

Contributor Aytekin Tank says he uses brain dumps as a means to tap into his creativity, as leader and founder of a company. “The truth is, our mind isn’t at its best or at its most creative when it’s being held under the weight of thousands of tasks and projects,” he writes.
Having launched my company Jotform over 16 years ago, I can attest that one of the hardest parts of achieving goals is choosing which to pursue and which to ignore.
Jotform Store Builder isn’t limited to small businesses—industries across the board can benefit from Store Builder’s ease of use and value. This includes restaurants setting up a QR code menu to collect orders and non-profit organisations gathering donations.
Jotform takes the security and privacy of our users very seriously. This starts with having solid internal processes. Part of my job here at Jotform is to ensure that security becomes part of everybody’s mission. We do that by providing in-depth security awareness training to all our employees and reminding them through various email campaigns how they can help keep Jotform safe.
At my company, we’re fortunate to have our San Francisco office located near the beautiful Embarcadero, which is a three-mile-long seawall where people can engage and listen thoughtfully. I’ve found that providing employees with personalized feedback during a walk helps relieve their stress and clears the mind.

My road to starting my company, Jotform, was a slow burn. As a bootstrapped founder, I never secured a massive round of VC funding or reached tremendous milestones in a short period of time. This, however, didn't make me any less disciplined than my counterparts who were always being featured on TechCrunch.
One of our latest products, Jotform Tables, which allows teams to collect, organize, and manage data in an all-in-one workspace — took us a whopping three years to develop.
When creating my company 16 years ago, I promised myself one thing: I’d be an ally, not a critic, to my team. Now more than ever, feedback and career development opportunities are a crucial aspect of retaining employees during the Great Resignation.
Entrepreneurship is a balancing act, and one of the questions that comes up again and again is which is more important: Creativity or hard work? Frustrating as it may be to hear, the answer is both.
But one of the lesser-known ways of boosting productivity is one that leaders may initially see as counterintuitive: creating a positive sense of community. Founders might think that too much connectivity will only distract, but I’ve personally witnessed the benefits of greater peer support.

At Jotform, we recently unveiled our first new brand in over a decade. It’s been an exciting time watching our company grow without any outside funding to 10 million users. I relay this news not to brag, but to reassure you that all of this didn’t come about without its challenges.
Jotform is incredibly flexible (offering conditional logic, direct integrations with lots of things, pre-filling, etc.) as well as CSS control of look-and-feel. I even use it internally when I’m gathering structured data like information that eventually goes into Airtable or ClickUp.
At Jotform, we have hack weeks, which allow our product teams five uninterrupted days to plug away at a single problem or project. These weeks have not only resulted in some of our most important innovations, they’re also a great way to collaborate and think about things in a new way.
Our Jotform integration helps you refine your personalization to improve email engagement. How? Jotform helps you gather important information about your customers. The data is then automatically added to the Benchmark Email list to build more complete customer profiles.
I’ve been CEO to my form-builder company for more than 15 years, and during this time we’ve had many ups and downs (though probably nothing quite as disrupting as this ongoing pandemic crisis), and it’s taught my team a thing or two about finding ways to be happy amid upheaval.
Apps are critical to business strategy these days, and with the availability of no-code solutions, there’s no reason not to have one up and running for your business.

At my company, we end the week with regular Demo Days each Friday. Groups present a prototype they’ve been working on. And whether outlandish or buggy—they are never critiqued with harshness. In fact, because of this, we find teams enjoy some friendly competition.

Want to know what people really thought about your webinar? Ask them to share their thoughts. Jotform Webinar Manager Morgan Ziontz does this with the help of Jotform’s 400+ feedback templates.
When I started Jotform in 2006, there was one single employee: Me. Being a bootstrapped founder, growth came slowly and deliberately; up until 2014, I didn’t make more than a few new hires each year. But in 2015, we moved our operations into a new, bigger office.
As CEO of Jotform for 16 years and counting, I can vouch that the early days were stressful, but those early stage worries were merely replaced by others as the team grew and the company expanded.
When I started Jotform, I thought it would be good to make the product completely free so there was a low barrier of entry for people to use it, and so it would create brand loyalty.
Jotform’s app builder lets you create a fully customized mobile application for your company that can be downloaded onto any smartphone, tablet or computer.
At my company, we haven’t established shorter days. But we do have a policy of flexible hours. This means we measure productivity over hours clocked.
Since launching my company back in 2006, we’ve added hundreds of staff, opened three offices on two continents and built a product with 10 million users. I mention all of this because I’ve learned a thing or two when it comes to evaluating people.
Jotform is utilized by many of my clients because, they make it very easy to create mobile forms that use conditional logic and accept payments and generate reports and automate workflows.
The new Jotform look features clean updates to our logo, tagline and interface; changes that reflect the ease, usability and personality of what the company is now while staying true to its roots.
Jotform wouldn’t be the company it is today if we hadn’t placed value in failure from the very beginning and even to this day. To give an example: We worked arduously on an idea for three years — testing and failing and re-testing — which eventually turned into our tool Jotform Tables.

Asana Flow’s template library includes access to apps such as AppLovin, ClassPass and Stride. They are in the process of collaborating with other workflow apps such as Miro, Jotform, and Google Drive.
As CEO of my company Jotform for nearly 16 years and counting, one of the most common questions I get from early-stage founders is: When do I make my first hire? The answer: when you’re on the verge of scaling your company — even if it doesn’t necessarily feel like the right time to hire.
Jotform tested new logos with the UserTesting Contributor Network, evaluating four logos over more than 50 sessions with contributors in their most popular regions: the US, the UK, and Australia. Based on the feedback they received, Jotform created a modern and fresh take on their original pencil logo.
With the introduction of App Components, Asana will directly integrate Miro and Jotform into the Asana UI, and coming soon, Google Drive. Then, in the coming months, Asana will expand App Components to customers and partners.
Jotform Enterprise is a digital workplace productivity tool that’s part of our suite of offerings. While we make an effort to ensure that Enterprise is clearly accessible on the Jotform site, our customers have typically come to us — they’re on Jotform’s page already, they see one of the Enterprise banners and click through. If they’re interested, they contact our sales team to learn more.
Jotform serves as a replacement for the endless amounts of paperwork without effective management. Its Form Builder is easy-to-use and customizable to fit any industry needs.

At Jotform, we have a variety of eCommerce users and offer over 30 payment processors for them to simply collect payments through our online forms product. But in the future, having multiple payment processors as well as other payment options like crypto or voice-activated transactions will also be essential.
Given how many people use our forms, it would make sense that much of our operations would be dedicated to improving them. But until recently, we haven’t actually paid as much attention to our forms. Instead, we were concentrating on evolving our form builder and creating useful tools like our PDF editor and workflow builder.
I’ve long been an advocate for work/life balance. For example, I don’t believe in answering emails on weekends or late into the night. For me, taking time off to do absolutely nothing is just as vital as the hours we clock in.
Jotform Tables functions much like many of the other entries on this list. You can use it to create and edit spreadsheets with a wide variety of information. You can choose to organize information into different views, with different filters, with graphs and formulae, all while collaborating with others. Where Jotform is different is how it lets you integrate with the rest of the Jotform ecosystem.
I was initially accepting people’s submissions through Instagram and would have them send me screenshots of their relevant conversations. But it got to a point where I was getting so many that it just wasn’t manageable so I finally set up something through Jotform that allows me to more easily go through them and pick the one I want to make into a video.
Something I’ve learned while growing my company over the last 15 years is that feedback isn’t effective when it inflates — or bruises — someone’s ego. Just as my supervisor went through a list of all my shortcomings all those years ago, the culture I’m striving to create with my business is the exact opposite of this.
As CEO of my company Jotform, the past couple of years have been exceptionally challenging. But during these difficult times, I believe that positive thinking is more critical than ever. Luckily, it’s possible to control the narrative in our heads—not necessarily to stop it, but to reign it in when it becomes too pessimistic.
Our friends at Jotform offer employee forms as well. Some of the forms they offer include ones related to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) as well as performance reviews and exit interviews. Jotform also allows you the flexibility to edit their forms to create something that fits with your organization’s needs.
Founded in 2006 and still bootstrapped 16 years later, Jotform has grown into a profitable, well-known SaaS brand. In 2022, Jotform’s 14 million users achieved 1 billion total form submissions from 22 million forms. In addition, the company has maintained 50 percent year-over-year revenue growth for seven consecutive years now.
The word “passive” gets a bad rap. But I’m not referring to becoming a conformist who lacks initiative. What I am advocating for, however, is embracing quiet reflection and moments of doing absolutely nothing.
In my early days of building Jotform, I’d often joke that I needed a clone. But what I’ve learned since is that it’s not more “fuel” we need — it’s to stop seeking more energy in order to hit peak productivity.
The next time you plan to share data, consider putting it into a digestible and understandable explanatory visualization format. You’ll improve your chances of educating your audience while helping others see why the data matters and what it means — rather than just a bunch of numbers.
Even spending 10 minutes of your day assisting someone with a difficult project can give you the inspiration you need for your own workload. I’ve witnessed this firsthand at my own company, where teams go out of their way to be supportive to one another.
Since launching my company Jotform 15 years ago, I’ve had to learn how to manage the inherent stress and uncertainty of being an entrepreneur, especially in a market with daunting competitors like Google. The pandemic forced me to confront those hard-earned lessons all over again and to figure out how to continue growing despite the uncertainty.
Telecommuting can’t successfully exist without a clearly defined policy in place. This is true whether you’re allowing employees to work from home, work remotely, or embrace a hybrid work model that merges the two.
Jotform used drag-and-drop technology before it was a thing. That was our angle, and I applied it to pitch news sites, write blog posts and develop PR plans. Consider what people care about most, and emphasize how your startup supports their busy lives.
Jotform’s drag-and-drop form builder allows you and your HR team to create intuitive forms within a couple of minutes (without technical know-how or endless cursing at your computer screen). And, with the Power-Up, you can build, share, and use your forms without leaving your Trello card.
Jotform includes a wide collection of free and paid PDF templates for proposals in all kinds of industries, for all kinds of projects. Templates are converted into PDFs for easy printing, and even include a digital signature feature that allows your clients to sign your agreement digitally.

While Jotform Apps can be used in all aspects of the business – regardless of your industry or company size – it can also be as a simple way for organizations to create employee portals.
Each month, I meet up with the founder of a successful task management app to discuss our approaches to running our businesses. Our management styles are pretty dissimilar: For one thing, his workforce is 100 percent remote, and he’s executed it in a very different way than I have with my team at Jotform.
Virtual learning removes the traditional restrictions of the classroom, even without a pandemic shuttering the doors. COVID-19 sent educators scrambling to find new methods for how to engage students when both teachers and students were working from home.
Any entrepreneur or small business owner will tell you that running a business is a lot of work, which is why most of them bristle at the idea that they start a nonprofit. But starting a nonprofit can do more than just provide a way to use your talents for the good of humanity. It can do wonders for your business, too.
A dedicated social media hire can solve this problem and help organizations grow platforms, keep tabs on social analytics, be part of industry-specific conversations, experiment with new platforms and trends, and more — all of which contributes to a stronger brand and more leads for your company. We've done it at Jotform, and it's worth it.
At my company, Jotform, we start new hires off with “Box A” projects, like fixing minor bugs, while they get the hang of things. That said, most of us should avoid sinking too much time on Box A.Read MoreNovember, 2021
Making progress is all about reaching strategic milestones. But when you’re doing something as overwhelming as running a business, it can be easy to get pulled in too many different directions, which keeps you from feeling like you’re getting anything done.Read MoreNovember, 2021
