Is my landing page TOO simple?

I am trying to maintain the concept of simplicity and "staying out of your way." The landing page is not only a landing page, but also the product itself since it generates Polylinks. I would love to hear your feedback. Thank you!

    I don't think it's too simple. There's a few elements on the screen that were not clear to me.

    • I don't understand why there's an emoji button to put an emoji next to the name box
    • I wasn't sure what that circular orange button did until i pressed it
    • I wasn't sure what that copy link button did until i pressed it
    • I'm not sure how to sign up. Is the Login place the only place to sign up?
    • different calls to action have different colors
    • text and fonts are hard to read imo

        Happy to help :)

        I recommend checking out this UX book: "Don't make me think"

    Too simple?

    Hell, I think it's too verbose.

    Polylink is a simple cross-browser tool to get your tabs under control. Each Polylink is a simple URL that will open up multiple websites in separate tabs with a single click. A great use for Polylink is creating one for each routine during your day:

    can be simplified to:

    Open multiple websites in separate tabs with a single click, try clicking the button below.

    And you have a button that opens up a bunch of random websites.

    That's all you need.

    People either get the value or they don't (I get it, but I'm fine just opening my own tabs, as what I do is group my links under a folder in my Bookmarks Bar > right-click and select "Open all (10)").

      Username checks out :D thank you for this! Will definitely implement this recommendation. I like the "people either get the value or they don't".

        Ok! Made an update https://polyl.ink/ . Would love to know what you think :)

    Ha, I love the idea.

    But it took me too long to understand it. A picture paints 1,000 words - why not show a video of somebody opening 5 different tabs, and show how it can be achieved with a polylink?

    Also, bin the background colour, reminds me of the 90s! :(

      Background color changed! Still will work on a better hero/picture to explain. https://polyl.ink/ . What do you think?
