We want to inspire people to get more done. So we developed a new website, BuddyHive.com that has now been running for about three months. Essentially it links up random buddies who list tasks that they want to get done over the next week or so, but have been putting off. The buddies communicate with each other via our private email system, providing support, advice, and encouragement. We have deliberately kept our marketing efforts low key, because we wanted to see how the site works for users. So far just over 100 tasks have been completed by buddies helping each other.
After communicating with a buddy, a user presses a button that says, “My task is done.” In fact, the system doesn’t allow them to press this button until at least one message has been sent. We want to encourage the mutual support that BuddyHive can provide.
So what are people getting done? Read more »
