You're absolutely right. I have a (very good) client who runs a successful small business (successful in part 'cos I built a bespoke application for them a few years ago, moving them off a creaking Excel-based "system"). Recently we needed to get him signed up to a new hosting provider. It was one I was familiar with, knew the signup, and so wrote a 4-bullet-point step-by-step guide to signing up. (Click this button, choose that service level, click OK, enter your payment details... literally that easy).

I got the reply back within about half an hour - "I'm not really that technical - can you do it please" accompanied by full details of the company credit card.

Some people are terrified of anything to do with technology - maybe perhaps only in a "work" context, but that's enough - for us.
