I'm working on a form users will fill out to start a free trial of our product. Unfortunately all of the fields I've included are required for us to put them in our system properly.
What I'm left with is a long form with a bunch of blank space on the page. What's the best way to fill it? Will more content on this page make it difficult for the user to move on or will it help make the form look less harrowing?
I considered adding a sort of 1, 2, 3 walkthrough of the steps they need to take to get up and running with our product, for example:
- Fill out the registration form
- Go through onboarding wizard
- Get started!
Would this make the form seem like a quick step toward their goal, or will it make the process feel longer?
