We’re just a group of guys who thought having a site to manage goals for friends would be an interesting social experiment.

We are curious to see if friendships can be strengthened by the act of giving for a purpose. Is there a win-win situation here: one achieves a goal and receives a reward, the other becomes an influential part of their friend’s success and their contributions would be shared for everyone to see.

There are many theories for motivation. One theory is that if you have announced your goal to your friends, or committed publicly to a goal, you’re more likely to achieve it, just so you don’t look like an ass.

This site is a play on psychological and social motivational factors.

I am guessing this site is to motivate friends and family to do things with money incentives.

I understood what the site is about very quickly, it’s about trying to help motivate your friends or family by giving them an insentive (money)

The site has a nice use of white/blank space coupled with large print and an appropriate color scheme. Â The logo, or what I assume is the logo, of the dollar sign plus the heart, is actually a fairly simple but straight forward idea and suits the site nicely.

It only took me about 30-45 seconds to “get” it. Â There is no ‘registration’ per say, and I was a little baffled by that. Â Do you track this? Â Can others track the progress of the person you are trying to monivate? Â Can others donate to the same person so all donations can be listed on the same page — seeing 5 or 6 friends/family members all donating $5 or$10 to your weight loss might make the unmotivated push a little harder!!? Â This could not really be done without some type of registration or at least an email address/username to tie the “donation” to. Â

The goal creation process was clean, simple and straight to the point. Â I liked it! Â Again, however, there was no registration. Â This might throw some people off, tho other might like the fact that you dont need to enter your email address and other info — but I believe this is a standard practice and, from an ad/marketing perspective, you wont get very many advertisers if you dont collect this info.

You are currently using a lot of free products on your site — not that there is anything wrong with that, but it was prettyÂ prevalentÂ (the free survey site, free feedback site, free chat/contact us tool, free animated demo by goAnimate, etc …) Â I would suggest building in some of your own work. Â Free is great, but overkill is not!! Â 🙂
