How do you ensure that your app is captivating and retaining users?
In comes the ‘Hooked Model.’
The ‘Hooked Model,’ developed by Nir Eyal, is a four-step process built on basic principles of behavioral psychology that can be used to build habit-forming apps. To promote user retention, take users through Eyal’s Hooked Model repeatedly until a habit is formed. The cycle follows four steps: trigger, action, variable reward, and investment.
Let’s break that down.
This is why in addition to increasing growth, creating an app that users turn to as soon as they unlock their phones again and again throughout their week is key to increasing lifetime value. With so much competition, apps need to be habit-forming to be truly successful.
We’ve applied the ‘Hooked’ treatment to two different apps, Bank of America and Whole Foods, to show some ideas for potentially making these well-known apps more habit-forming to create even better products.
To see these examples and find out how the ‘Hooked’ model can work to make your app more engaging, download our free whitepaper here.
