Text2Calm Pilot Program

  1. 1. Text2Calm: “Living in the moment.”<br />A pilot program on calming by :<br />Mitchell Fukumoto<br />
  2. 2. A Brief Rundown<br />Take a photo of a “moment” during the day.<br />Reminded once a day via text.<br />At the end of the day, send the photo back via text or email.<br />A “moment of the day” is sent back at the end of the day showcasing the best “moment of the day.”<br />All pictures are posted to a blog: http://lifeiswin.tumblr.com/<br />
  3. 3.
  4. 4. First Round Survey – After one week<br />Q: How did you feel when you were asked to complete your task?Answers: “I actually wanted to do it!”, “too enthusiastic, couldn’t stop”, “excited”<br />Q: How did you feel after completing your task?Answers: “accomplished”, “happy”, “nostalgic”, “more aware of my surroundings”<br />Q: Was the blog and/or the moment of the day effective?Answers: “I liked it because it was my community”, “it definitely spread the joy”, “added incentive to take a great picture”, “it’s nice to see what people chose to reflect on”<br />
  5. 5. First Round Feedback<br />“I wanted to do when I wasn't stressed, but when I was stressed or busy, it felt like an obligation.”<br />“I was usually pretty aware of when I was forgetting to take my picture…Other than just remembering in the back of my head, I didn't have anything to prompt me everyday.”<br />“more reminders!”<br />“It might be fun to occasionally get prompted pictures instead of just a reminder. For instance instead of just ‘capture a moment of the day,’ something like ‘take a moment to notice people's smiles today’”<br />
  6. 6. Best Feedback Received<br />Out of 7 original participants, 6 were regular contributors. 86% initial retention rate.<br />Out of 6 regular contributors, 6 agreed to continue with the project. 100% retention rate.<br />
  7. 7. Second Round Implementation<br />Add more reminders<br />Hopefully one will trigger the behavior.<br />Take a picture once every other day at your leisure but reminders are sent every day. <br />Attempt to remove the obligation of taking a picture. Gives the user a bigger time frame.<br />Some days, add a “moment challenge” to take a picture of something specific.<br />
  8. 8. Moving Forward<br />Will continue to blog indefinitely. Received many comments that the blog was the best thing to come out of this project.<br />Personally, I will continue to take pictures. It makes me calmer, happier and is like a virtual journal of my daily life.<br />Added Google Analytics to the blog to track network traffic. Will attempt to increase traffic to the site and followers to the blog.<br />
