A/B Testing Idea #179 - Seek a gradual engagement, over a hurried signup
Making a form easy and fun to fill in will encourage people to complete it and convert. Starting your form by asking for a lot of personal information will annoy people and they are more likely to abandon the signup process.
Asking a simple question at first will help people become engaged and complete the form. You could ask them an easy question related to the registration process, such as "how big is your team?". After they've done this you can move them on to the next stage of the form and as they've already become engaged they are more likely to convert.
