Wunderlist's Cross-Platform Acquisition & Onboarding Process

Acquisition is about acquiring new users, this is a fairly daunting task given the number of apps exploding in the app stores. Effective user acquisition strategies are of great importance and vital to success.

Onboarding is the process of familiarizing people with a new system.

  • Demonstrating the product’s value, and
  • Being emjoyable.
