“Every extra step will have an increasing and negative reaction”

This translates to a tech startup: If you can make it take one click to sign up instead of four. Do it!

I spent a meeting yesterday focused entirely on simplifying the sign up and usage steps of our product. It will mean completely restructuring our product but our customers will have to do less, to achieve more. An essential part of a great product in my eyes.
