In this episode, we discussed when is the friction good and how to find that out.
We recently wrote this on Userpilot’s blog, so I’m sharing it here:
A friction-based flow is one that will make it harder for the user to complete the signup process in exchange for more value-added later on. For example, booking a demo that goes to your sales pipeline first is also counted as friction-based. On the other hand, a frictionless flow will make it much easier to complete the signup process hoping that the UI is good enough to demonstrate the value of the app on its own.
I also discussed the advantages and disadvantages of both in our podcast or you can simply read this blog.
