I'm creating a combined login/sign up form. When the user clicks the action button an ajax call is made which either:
- Logs the user in, if the account exists.
- Signs the user up, and then logs them in if the account does not exist.
I'm trying to figure out the ideal action word(s) for the login/sign up button. I'm wary of combining text such as "Sign In / Login" in one button and would like to keep it to ideally one or two words. I'd also rather not split the button in two.
The primary text on the page says "Find stuff you'll love," right above the login widget. I'm thinking the button verbiage can make use of this, so up until now I've used the word "Start," because whether or not you have an account you can still "start finding stuff."
Edit: To clarify the question, which verbiage is most appropriate for a combined login/register button and why?
