Dr. BJ Fogg is the founder of the Persuasive Technology Laboratory at Stanford University. His research focuses on the use of technology to influence and modify the behavior of individuals.

According to him, three elements must converge at the same time for a target behavior to occur:

  1. Motivation;
  2. Ability
  3. Trigger (a cue)

Motivation is the underlying drives which motivates us. Three core motivators can influence the consumer: pleasure and pain (physical level) , hope and fear (emotional level), acceptance and social rejection (social level).

The ability includes six ways that can be seen as ability blockers – things that reduce one’s ability - but that can be changed, namely: time, money, mental and physical efforts, social deviance and non-routine.

Finally, the triggers may be external, such as a drill prompting action, or internal, as a routine behavior that would make you open the fridge every time you go to the kitchen. They are all the things that push you to perform an action, without which the behavior would just not occur.

The higher the motivation and the capacity, and the higher the effectiveness of a trigger, the higher the ods of the behavior taking place.

 If the desired behavior is not occurring, then one of these three elements might be missing.

No matter what your product is, you are ultimately in the education business. Your customers need to be constantly educated about the many advantages of doing business with you, trained to use your products more effectively, and taught how to make never-ending improvement in their lives.

Customers want product that are relevant to us, that make our life better Customers want product that are relevant to us, that make our life better
wizmood on Ello

As customers, what we crave more than the commodity we think we are paying for is to be understood.

What we want more than a reliable ride to our destination, a comfortable bed for the night, or even a book we can get our teeth into, is to really be seen.

What we want more than responsive organizations is personal relevance.

The value isn't just in the data that businesses collect. What counts is how they use it to make our lives better.

(…) a phenomenon we call the endowed progress effect, whereby people provided with artificial advancement toward a goal exhibit greater persistence toward reaching the goal.

By converting a task requiring 8 steps into a task requiring 10 steps but with two steps already complete, the task is reframed as one that has been undertaken and incomplete rather than not yet begun. This increases the likelihood of task completion and decreases completion time.
