Thanks Tom. I consider that quite a compliment!
I’ll try to explain, but really I only handled the html & css to make it look nice and function! We have a fantastic developer who designed and built the rest. Basically, the form on the home page is just a regular hand-built form to capture the zip code. We have a custom-built app that goes out and gathers the latest quotes from a third-party specific to the information gathered as people go through the process and then displays the results on a page via a custom-built plugin. If it sounds like I don’t completely know what I’m talking about, it’s because I barely do on that end and I apologize. I asked our developer about it and without going into too much detail he said he basically did it that way so he could display the results without using i-frames.
This form is also hand-built: http://www.gomedigap.com/are-you-paying-too-much/ and basically does the exact same thing as the form on the home page.
This one is hand-built: http://www.gomedigap.com/gomedigap-rate-watch/ and is just a normal form that sends the information entered and puts people in a system that will notify them of rate changes.
There are also forms on the site using Gravity forms like here: http://www.gomedigap.com/mark-burgener/ using multiple copies of the same form specific to each agent’s page using conditional logic in a sidebar widget. This allows the agents to share their page and if they get a referral, the form shoots the information to their email and they get the new lead.
Hope that somewhat answers your question. I learned a lot about forms on this one!May 14, 2014 at 1:44 pm #105147

Thanks for detailing that for us. There has obviously been a lot of thought put into the functional design as well as the aesthetic. I went Wayback to see what it used to look like – it’s almost night and day. I hope you don’t mind my posting links for others to see for comparison: December 2013, September 2010.
Noting that it appears that you chose Genesis over Headway Themes from 2013.

I don’t mind you posting the links. There was already a ton of content that needed to be really thought through and organized for presentation. Visually, it needed to “breathe” more than anything.
There are very few things in my life that I have disliked more than Headway…
The site also had some serious SEO issues and a Manual Action from Google that I’m happy to say got lifted last week!
