I was going to suggest yasnippet but I see you’re already using that :)

I assume the 5 keys you have now are `< r e f TAB`. If not, please elaborate.

You can shorten that to `< r TAB` by editing the snippet (M-x
yas-visit-snippet-file), changing the `# key: <ref` line to `# key:
<r` and installing the changed snippet with `C-c C-c`.

You could do away with the initial `<` if you didn’t ever need to use
the snippet immediately after a word, like `foo<ref…`. However, with
footnotes and references, you often do, so you need a non-letter at
the start of the key.

Alternatively, you could bind the snippet directly to a key by
specifying a `# binding:` directive in the snippet file. For example,
`# binding: M-r` or `# binding: C-c w r`.
