Onboarding for first-time users

Piotr Bartoszek @piotrbartoszek

Yesterday we released a new version of Owwly with a super smooth onboarding process 😎 We noticed that a lot of users add their own tool to the website without a first post. That’s why we would like to encourage makers during the first visit to introduce themselves and say a couple words about their website.

Onboarding consists of 3 steps

Confirm profile -> Add product -> Write first post

Simple as that 😸 I am so interested in the results and overall fillings. Anybody here without an account on Owwly and with free time to test it 🤓?

    Dude, you should modify your Google Sign In page. It's difficult to login to one which says "Continue to designhub-748bc.firebaseapp.com". Also, no way to go back home from the Sign In Page.

    The design is nice. But what's exactly the differentiator compared to SO many such platforms available? Couldn't understand at all - there isn't any About page or any description either.

      Regarding first part - yep I totally agree, I talked about that with my dev and it's not so trivial as I thought. Need to believe him unless I get dozen similar messages and motivate him to repair it ;)

        It's not a monumental task actually. It is pretty trivial. I've done it about a dozen times. Ask them to do it 🙂
