if you run a business, you probably spend a lot of time on your website.
for fomo customers, this potentially means exhausting their monthly notification limit, inadvertently.
so today, we're happy to open source a new project called Nomo.
Nomo is a way for Fomo customers -- and anyone else who feels inclined -- to ignore Fomo notifications while they browse the web.
why we're doing this
the decision to build Nomo came from a few places:
- customers have asked us to block internal company traffic
- one popular feature is the ability to close Fomo notifications
- the fomo mission statement
to save you a click, our mission at fomo is to help 1 million consumers make better buying decisions online.
so while increasing conversions is our customers' primary use case, that does not always yield the best outcome for our customer's customers.
also, building v1.0 was trivial (< 1 hour). no excuse not to experiment.
unintended consequences of social proof
occasionally, social proof mechanisms encourage behaviors that end-consumers ultimately regret. this does not align with our mission.
so here's what happens next:
- some customers and end-users will disable Fomo with Nomo
- our monthly stats will decrease, which means less revenue for us, and less data for Insights, our machine platform
- fomo customers and end-users have better browsing experiences on the web
- contributions are welcome
someone once said, "sales is always about helping, and never about convincing."
we hope the launch of Nomo demonstrates that sentiment
