Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products Video Course

Video Description

Why do some products capture our attention while others flop? How do technologies hook us? Nir Eyal answers these questions (and many more) with the Hook Model - a four-step process that subtly encourages customer behavior; repeatedly bringing them back without costly advertising or aggressive messaging.

Based on years of research, consulting, and practical experience, Hooked shows how to create user habits that stick. This video course is for product designers, marketers, and anyone who seeks to understand how products influence our behavior. The course is based on Eyal’s bestselling book, “Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products,” which can be found at NirAndFar.com/gethook
