After you publish a signup form, your next step will likely be analyzing how it’s performing so that you can iterate and optimize. At an individual level, you can head to the Signup Forms tab and select the form that you would like to review. Once you click into a given form, you will see an overview of its performance.
In your Analytics tab, you can also measure signup form performance across a number of different forms to gain insight into how your forms are performing as a whole.
This guide will walk you through each of these options so that you can get a complete picture of how your forms are performing on their own and in relation to one another. In both cases, the metrics shown take into account tracked and untracked visitors, so you can get a holistic sense of your forms' performance.
Individual Signup Form Activity
To view the performance of a specific form, first navigate to the Signup Forms tab. Here, you will see a list of all the forms in your account, along with the list a given form submits to and the Submitted Form and Form Submit Rate metrics (defined below) from the last 30 days.
When you click into form that is in Editing or Live mode, you will then be taken to the Forms Overview page. You can toggle between this page and the Advanced Reports page to get a comprehensive view of how your form is performing.
If you click into a form that is in Draft mode and was never published, you will be taken directly to the Signup Form Builder.
In the Overview tab, you will see the following metrics displayed in a graph and as cards:
- The total number of Viewed Form events, which are tracked whenever a site visitor views a form.
- The total number of Submitted Form events, which are tracked whenever a visitor submits a signup form, or whenever a visitor clicks a “Go to URL” button on a form. If a form has both of these buttons, it will only count the event when someone submits the form.
- The Form Submit Rate, which is the ratio of Submitted Form / Viewed Form events.
By default, all of these metrics will display data from the past seven days, grouped by day, however, you can configure this depending on how you would like to visualize your data.
Additionally, if the lefthand panel, you will see some high-level information about the form, including:
- The name of the form
- The type of form (popup, flyout, or embed)
- The form status (Live, Editing, or Draft mode, if the form was live at any point)
- The list the form submits to, if applicable, which is configurable by editing the submit button on a form
- The publish date, including when the form was originally published and when it was last updated
In the Advanced Reports tab, you will see a breakdown of Viewed Form, Submitted Form, and Form Submit Rate events split by a number of different options, including:
- Device type (mobile or desktop)
Each page will display up to 25 values, sorted by default in descending order by Form Submit count. However, this is configurable depending on how you would like to represent this data.
Like the Overview tab, the Advanced Reports tab will show data from the past seven days by default, but is configurable and will reflect any timeframe updates you make in the Overview tab.
Multiple Signup Forms Activity
On your dashboard, in the Analytics tab, you can add a card to visualize any of the following metrics:
- Viewed Form
This metric is tracked whenever a visitor views a Klaviyo form.
- Closed Form
This metric is tracked whenever a visitor closes a Klaviyo form.
- Submitted Form
This metric is tracked whenever a visitor submits a Klaviyo signup form, or whenever a visitor clicks a "Go to URL" button on a Klaviyo form.
- Form Submit Rate
This metric tracks the rate at which people engage with your form, which is the Submitted Form metric divided by the Viewed Form metric.
You can find these metrics under the Klaviyo category when adding a card. Additionally, you can navigate to your Forms Overview report to analyze the default forms dashboard view.
Available Filtering Options
When analyzing a particular metric, there are several ways you can group and sort your data, including:
This is the name of the form.
This allows you to split the data for desktop vs. mobile.
Group data by popup, flyout, and embedded forms.
This is the UTM source of the URL the form is displayed on, if applicable.
This is the UTM medium of the URL the form is displayed on, if applicable.
This is the UTM campaign of the URL the form is displayed on, if applicable.
If someone clicks a button, whether it is a "Go to URL" or "Submit Form" event.
If someone clicks a "Go to URL" button, what URL did they click through to.
The page the URL was shown on, including domain and path. This will not include any UTM parameters.
Web Crawlers (Bots) and Viewed Form Events
Search engines like Google use crawlers (bots) to visit webpages and catalog the contents of those pages. Prior to September 12, 2019, Klaviyo treated these instances as Viewed Form events, which inflated this number, but didn't affect the number of Submitted Form events. Hence, the Form Submit Rate (the ratio of Submitted Form events over Viewed Form events) for some customers was underreported.
On September 12, 2019, we released a change to filter out web crawlers and more accurately report your engagement metrics. As a result, you may notice a decrease in the number of Viewed Form events in your account, accompanied by a higher Form Submit Rate.
What are Good Rates for a Form?
While what "good" means for each form will differ depending on the purpose of the form, the median Form Submit Rate for popups and flyouts is only 2.3%. Most successful forms have between a 1 and 3% Form Submit Rate, but extremely high performing forms can have up to a 6.5% Form Submit Rate. If you're finding you have a Form Submit Rate on Klaviyo that's less than your previous list growth tool, most likely, it is because your previous platform calculated Form Submit Rates differently than Klaviyo does. If you're concerned it is because your forms aren't working properly, feel free to reach out to support.
