I really appreciated this, because it allowed me to evaluate their tool very quickly – I came to write a newsletter, not go through an onboarding flow! The tooltip walkthrough is a familiar pattern for many users and it has been built in a minimal way, no flashing buttons trying to distract me and get me to explore the interface, just three short bubbles and I’m free to start creating.
Altogether I can complete the signup and onboarding in less than thirty seconds, and I never have to leave Revue. At the end I’m exactly where I want to be so I can get on with using the product for my intended purpose. Keep your first user flows short, simple and focused, and you’ll find your users much happier when they start using your products, reflected in a lower new user churn rate.
