Setting Expectations for Content Requiring Registration

Good morning,

Has anyone done any A/B testing around whether or not providing more information upfront about documents that require registration before download entices users more effectively?  For example, have you seen users being more or less willing to providing contact information based on how much information is provided about the document, e.g. document size and "teaser" content like an executive summary or abstract and file size, in the case of a PDF?

[JOB] UX Designer - Sydney, Australia

Meld has reached that point where I need help to get through the work that’s
building up. There’s work on social media strategy and planning to do; work
on communications strategy and design to do; work on the strategy, design &
implementation of a Website for a small not-for-profit; and some other bits
and pieces.

Rather than specify a bunch of skills, knowledge of & experience withs, let
me just say what I need you to be able to do:

- Be observant. Listen, watch, take notes. Ask questions.

My new webpage

Hello members,
I have changed the content of my webpage www.amroha.dk
At the moment I am scanning all my projects and also uploading pictures of
my family and I. This means that none of these are available at the site.
BUT please let me know what you think of the colours chosen and style etc.
With regards to links, I can paste your webpage beneath the 'Stuff about
Interaction Design....' if you want me to.

Please critize, praise, comment do whatever you want. After all I want my
users/readers to be pleased >)

Worst Login/Password/Forgot Password Process Ever?

Ever try to login to the UPA website?

Haven't in a while and forgotten your password?

They actually expect me to remember my UPA number to retrieve my

Who designed this? A grass-smokin' monkey? This is the UPA, not the MIT
Alumni Association!

Everyone already knows that the simplest thing is to allow people to select
using their email address as their username. This is common knowledge. UPA
expects me to remember a random numeric string that I have used -- what? 4
times in the last 3 years.

Designers: Show Your Work Fast, Cross-Browser & Without Flash Using Black Tonic

This is pretty neat. But it's kind of simple. I'm sure they're working on
it...as well are, lol.

I'm using Acrobat Connect for presentations when I'm showing web sites, but
I can see how this would be useful for my wire frame presentations.

Product Company Entrapreneurs (apologies for cross posting)

As a fund-raising fool, I attend a lot of SV networking events for
entrepreneurs. There are plenty of them. I meet marketers, engineers,
business folks... but never any designers or folks with design
backgrounds (unless it's Frank Ramirez.) This might be my luck, or it
might be a trend. I'd like to hear from folks why you think this
happens? why don't more ID's, Interaction designers, etc become product
company CEO's? And yes, I've heard of 37 signals... but even they took
a different outsider path.
