    What’s the deal: Many companies battle with a high rate of signup drop-off, and don’t really have a handle on the reasons for it.

    It’s a serious issue. The average signup drop rate is more than 60%, which means that half of the company’s marketing budget is going down the drain.

    Upflowy, a Sidney-based startup, offers a smart solution for all companies facing the problem of high signup drop-off.

    Why does it matter: It’s super annoying for customers that many websites require them to fill out long forms requesting detailed personal information even before granting access to content / services. This is one significant factor that can lead to a signup drop-off.

    A high drop-off rate results in companies revamping their signup flow every couple of years, without any real understanding of the reason behind it.

    Upflowy helps to optimize the signup process without the need for much technical knowledge.

    It offers amazing and precise signup flow templates, and generates strategies to attract more leads and to convert more prospects into customers.

    In addition, signup flows can be adapted and optimized on demand.

    Our take: Upflowy offers a smooth signup process and also helps to generate more leads. Yet, there are already various companies in the market offering this service with more features at lower prices.

    Nevertheless, Upflowy’s UI seems to be way simpler than the competition, which could bring valuable growth momentum.
