If someone can make a fun interactive game that helps people set up these accounts and gets everything linked up, that'd be amazing.

On it 🙂🤞

it is super overwhelming for people.

The part that is overwhelming is not the process, but the lack of visibility of the system status here. The first thought the user get when they think of signing up on the listed platforms is "how much control am I going to have over this?". The interface fails to give the confidence to users in most cases. An area we could wrk upon.

Potentially... but I think a big part of it is just platform fatigue and the sunk cost fallacy... a lot of our target demographic have already put so much time and energy into traditional social media to go onside with the algorithms that the concept of adding another platform on top just doesn't sound that fun... which we understand and it's not until people take the plunge and start to earn more with a couple of posts that they've ever earnt on traditional social media that they start to get it. Our userbase was really small but extremely enthusiastic.

True. Figuring out the right onboarding startegy here can be a very interesting task to engage in. If the trigger for trial/onboarding could be placed very close to the phase where user experiences a disappointment in the existing workflow/system could improve the chances.
