Gamification Superpower: Designing Habit-forming Products Recently I read “Hooked: How to Build Habit-forming Products“, by Nir Eyal. A must-read book for any product marketer, that gives insights about how users engage with technological products, and the psychological model that helps us to define high-engaging products. Nir presents the hook model, a 4 phase strategy that starts with a external trigger that motivates a user action in our product, then we give the user a variable reward (this is the part that distinguishes the hook model from a plain feedback loop), and after that we require the user to invest some time/effort/money into our product, that finally generates an internal trigger to continue the feedback loop. Although Hooked mentions gamification a couple times, it’s not focused in gamification techniques but in the feedback model that would help us to engage new clients with our product or solution.
