When should I use this template?

If you’ve recently noticed a drop in sign-ups on your website, it may be a good idea to run a quick sign-up flow test to check users are able to find what they need.

How can I improve the sign-up flow experience for my users?

1. Use this template to run a test. We may be biased, but the best way to discover what improvements need to be made to your website sign-up flow is by simply testing it out with your users. They’ll be able to help you with qualitative feedback about what’s not working so you can make improvements that will boost sign-ups.

2. Clear up visual clutter. Is your website filled with loud designs? While it’s great to have a bold brand, sometimes less is more as it can help users navigate more easily through your website sign-up flow. For example, multiple assets may distract attention from where your customers are actually supposed to click—meaning you could miss out on valuable sign-ups.

3. Do a copy-check. Is it clear what your user is supposed to do? If your website is text-heavy, potential sign-ups may get lost in your words without seeing where they can actually sign up.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is usability testing?

Usability testing is the process of evaluating how easy to use and intuitive a product is by testing it with real users. Usability testing usually involves getting participants to complete a list of tasks while observing and noting their interactions to identify usability issues and areas of improvement.

When should you do usability testing?

The best time to conduct usability testing is before finalizing or launching the product. However, there are several opportunities to do usability testing earlier in the design and development process, and ideally you should conduct multiple usability tests at different stages. These stages include:

  • Before any major design decisions are made
  • When it’s time for the product’s next iteration
  • After launching the product
  • When you’re uncertain about the design

How do you carry out usability testing?

Usability testing can be carried out a number of ways. The most common methods of usability testing include utilizing online usability testing platforms, guerrilla testing, lab usability testing and phone/video interviews.
