Cowrkr

Bringing social accountability to work 🙊

#3 Product of the DayOctober 09, 2017

Cowrkr is an initiative to help makers keep themselves socially accountable. We connect two makers at a time and we help them keep each other accountable till their respective projects are completed and then they move on to another maker.

Hey Product Hunt! Nice to be shipping here again 🙌| I've always wanted to build and launch something in 24 hours and Cowrk is my first. Cowrk is a service that connects makers with each other with an intent of keeping each other accountable for their work 🙇 You would be connected on a project basis; so you will not be connected to a new maker until you reach your goal and make sure your buddy finishes their's too! This project been heavily inspired by Serendipity by @ManasviniK and I believe that connecting two people with a purpose can boost productivity. I'm here to answer any questions you may have! 😸

Well, that was fast, I feel like you've just made the poll asking if people would love that (days fly while shipping!). You'll probably want to add a more in details explanation on homepage of what social accountability is and why it's useful. While it's obvious for WIP members, it probably won't be for just anyone :)

@manasvinik @amrith Genius idea! Good incentive to keep motivated & make awesome projects which could end up here, in ProductHunt ;)

@amrith Imo not so many check the FAQ, it’d be better to make clear what accountable is right from the front page since that’s the moment when users decided whether to continue reading or leave. I think “help each other out until your project and theirs are launched” could work better than “keep each other accountable for their work”. Then you can also say “Have someone to report progress to and get support from. No more unfinished projects for you”. Anyway, this is one of the best projects for entrepreneurs/makers I’ve heard of in years, the idea is incredible and the execution even better! I can see lots of good coming out of it (and I can’t wait to hear about the upcoming success cases), so please keep it up with it and congrats!!!

Thanks a lot for your support 🙏

@angeliquesocial Just finished commenting about it 😅 I've been a part of @marckohlbrugge's Telegram group for few weeks now and I'm really inspired by the productivity of makers in there that made me wanna build Cowrkr :)

Looks good! I like the idea of being connected to someone randomly and not just someone you know already. Good way to meet new makers.
