Creating a Sign up Form is not something new thing in the Web designing field. Web developers deploy latest technologies to create interactive sign up forms. Some Websites ask for fewer details, while some ask for more information. The requirement of user information solely depends upon the product/service being provided on a Website. For online stores like Amazon and EBay, it becomes quite necessary to verify user’s email address, credit card information, and even shipping address while finalizing the purchases. Yes you’re free to ask the information required, but you must have to consider the visitors’ point of view as well.
If a visitor found your sign up Form large, complicated, or difficult to fill then he/she immediately leaves your Website. Non-interactive sign up forms can reduce your chances of getting good number of signups and give the opportunity to your competitors to generate more money. In this write up, we’ll highlight a few effective ways to make Sign up Form more interactive.
Don’t ask for Sign up until required.
It is commonly observed that visitors stay only for 5 to 20 seconds on a Website to check whether it is useful or not. As soon as a visitor lands on your Website, engage him in the activities directly like creating a Family Tree, creating a Toolbar, creating a Web application etc. even before asking for sign up. The industry’s best examples in this regard are illustrated following:
- Nokia Ovi App Wizard – This Nokia Ovi Website directly engages the visitors to create a Nokia Ovi Application and after few steps it asks for registration. Visit its URL and you’ll notice a big green button ‘Get Started’. The application is saved so that visitors can browse it again after creating login ID and signing in.
