Increase the commitment of users from the very beginning.
According to the book Influence by Robert Cialdini, if we put more actions or more time into a something, we feel more connected to it, and it’s more difficult to abandon it. We think, “Since I got so far, it would be a waste of time to stop now”.
*Make users provide more information about themselves from the very beginning.*
The more they provide, the more ownership they will feel of their newly created profile.
*Make users invest more time during the registration process.*
It will increase their engagement.
*Give users some simple tasks to do. But not too simple.*
If the tasks are challenging enough, users will get into the flow state, and it will be difficult to stop doing what they are doing. They will get engaged instantly.
*Ask your users a few simple questions.*
Neil Patel, one of the best online marketers, recommends asking around five questions of multiple choice with a maximum of four answers.
*Add gamification elements.*
For example, unlock more features as users progress with your product.
