Form banners and designs….

How many times do we fill in forms on the internet for banks, contact details and other lead generation programmes…and we feel its never gonna end.

What could start of as a simple three step process eventually turns out take more than 40 minutes.You and I wouldnt even know what we were getting into.On completing two process and on typing in the data required and with time invested each step gives us false expectation of being the last step.

Microsoft is one such example.While installing the windows, users are given a falso hope of getting over with in four steps.After the third step,you feel you done with stuffs…but another 40 minutes of installation process left.

This is exactly the problem most of us face while filling in a form online…one step taking multiple pages to complete.

Amazon.com is a good example, where no false expectations, but merely a progree bar is used.

Using a smarter paginations like the one given belowcould also be another alternative. what you are doing here is splitting the entire database into a more manageable chunks or “pages”.

Pagination Area

dialog-types-pagination (1K)

But the rule remains the same— let the users beware.
