  1. I have recently tried uCalc https://ucalc.pro/en – a new business tool for increasing the conversion. In uCalc you can quickly create a lead form with a beautiful design. I’ve noticed that more client orders seem to be coming and sales have increased.

  2. Do any of these plugins allow to present a lead form based on the Geo Location? For instance, I only want lead forms to occur in NY.
