Feedback on my new shiny onboarding ๐Ÿ’…

Fabien Herfray @FabienHerfray

Over my last iterations on Frenl, I mostly focused on the landing pages and on raising the conversion rate. It is now around 20% and I am happy with it.

So far the only input I was asking from the users were two free texts "I can help with" and "I need help with". These were displayed in introduction emails.

I realized that it wasn't enough to spark interest and start conversations so I decided to add social/community links (Twitter, Medium, Indie Hackers...) to the Frenl user profiles.

Since it was a significant raise in the effort asked to the user, I wrapped it inside of a new multi steps gamified onboarding instead of asking for everything at once.

I am now in the situation where I have no clue if it was helpful and I would love to get feedback on the onboarding experience :)

In particular, do you feel like the requested amount of input is overwhelming?
Are there some field that you would only consider filling after testing the app more thoroughly?
Anything that felt odd?

Thank you so much in advance ๐Ÿ™
