Why Do / Don't People Vote?
It has been 3+ month since our soft launch. We now have 250+ users registered, has given out $400+ in terms of prizes, and have around 400-500 unique visitors everyday.
What fascinates me is — why people vote? Or rather, why don't people vote?
Looking at the logs over the past week, we have no lack of registered users coming back to check out new bargains, but people rarely vote for them. So at the end when you browse through all the recently submitted bargains, you will see lots of items with only 1 vote — voted by their original poster.
So I am here to ask for suggestions — how can I get people to vote for good deals?
- Maybe there are not really good deals? (Too much crap here?)
- There is no incentive? (Why click on the vote button when I can just click through and shop?)
- Too hard? (Where is the vote button?)
I am open to provide incentives, but then I do not want everyone votes on every deal.
