Happy Couples Bot -- A Communication Tool to Amplify Happiness
Human beings are all different.
We don’t think or act the same, we come from different backgrounds, we process information differently. Then, we pair off into couples, and since we're only human, we don’t always express our true wants and needs to our significant others.
The Solution – put a robot in the middle!
Not just any robot, but one that lives on our phones and is adept at delivering the messages each of us wants the other to hear.
Say "Hello!" to the Happy Couples Bot --
- The Happy Couples Bot is a bot, not an app.
- There's nothing to download.
- Nothing to remember to open.
- No Android vs. iOS issues.
- Notifications are by text message, so you never miss them!
The Happy Couples Bot is a communication tool built to include those communication points that couples need, designed for both men and women to want to participate.
Tier One Features
of the Happy Couples Bot
1. Love Reminders
Each person enters three things that make them happy in the relationship, written as a message from the HC Bot to their significant other, and the bot delivers it.
- Carrie likes it when you bring home take-out for dinner
- Alex loves holding hands with you
- Valerie’s favorite thing is snuggling with you in the morning
- Paul loves it when you comment on his IG posts
Couples set their notice schedule, and Love Reminders arrives via text message at regular intervals once or twice weekly on their chosen days.
2. Important Dates
Each person enters the three most important days in the year, and Important Date reminders are sent to the other partner one week ahead, one day ahead and same day.
Tier Two Features
1. Favorite Everything Library
Like a very private Pinterest board between two people. A library that supports a combination of text, photos and links. Each person can store up to 50 items to the library, knowing that the only other person who can view it is their partner. They can rank items in order of importance.
Favorite flowers, restaurants, candy, gear, stores, foods – this is an ongoing resource that your significant other can check any time.
This feature will also include information like sizes and reward program data.
You can use the library to remind yourself of things your partner likes or get gift ideas, and ultimately purchase directly through bot affiliates.
2. Romantic Dinner for Two
Working with an affiliate boxed dinner company, we will create a proprietary Happy Couples Romantic Dinner Kit that couples can order directly through the HC Bot, which will include instructions, ingredients, and everything needed to make a fix-at-home meal romantic and perfect.
Additional Tier Two Features in the works include Favorite Songs, Favorite Movies, and more advanced ways to communicate wants, needs and undying love to your other half.
What makes the Happy Couples Bot so Special?
The best thing about the Happy Couples Bot is that you set it and forget it.
The HC Bot does all the work!
Simple web-based onboarding
- Users receive reminders without opening an app
- Customized messaging written by the user
- Harmless to operating systems
But MOST IMPORTANTLY --
- Each person's phone is linked exclusively with ONE other phone. The HC Bot is for two people in a committed, monogamous relationship.
Game Elements That Make it even More Fun (and Compelling)
As you use the HC Bot more -- get notifications, receive date reminders, fill your Favorite Everything Library -- you unlock higher levels which allow you to enter more Love Reminders, extra Dates, and a bunch more content that we can't tell you about right now, as it's some fun "secret sauce" that we don't want to reveal until it's ready for tasting.
Achieving each level is met with fanfare and celebration, as you and your significant other get closer, happier and more open with each other. You will love this part of it!
So...Where Are We Now?
We are about to release the beta version to our first couples.The schedule is as follows:
- Roll out first version of Happy Couples Bot to beta couples
- 8-10 weeks of beta feedback and adjustment
- During beta, begin digital marketing, PR and referral program
- Take full Tier One offering wide
- Develop Tier Two features
- Roll out Tier Two and launch subscriptions
- Continuously add features, levels to be "unlocked," and more surprises!
Once the full feature sets of both Tier One and Tier Two are available to all registered couples, the Happy Couples Bot will be offered as a monthly subscription, for $1.99 per month, per couple if paid on one credit card, or $2.99 per month if split between two cards, with each card charged every other month. One-year gift subscriptions will also be available, to give as wedding, engagement and anniversary presents.
Who's Building this Bot?
The Happy Couples Bot was created by Valerie Alexander, founder and CEO of Goalkeeper Media -- the company building it. Valerie was a corporate securities lawyer, investment banker and Internet executive in the Silicon Valley, then spent a decade as a successful screenwriter before pivoting to become an author, speaker and corporate trainer. The Happy Couples Bot brings together all her expertise -- happiness, communication, brain science, technology and start-ups.
The CTO of Goalkeeper Media and lead developer of the HC Bot is Tracy Greene. Tracy has a BS in Computer Science, an MS in Software Design and is fluent in more than a dozen programming languages, She has worked in a variety of programming and leadership capacities at JPL, Raytheon, NGP VAN and, most recently, Tech Rocket.
What Will You Do With the Money?
Our goal is to raise enough to cover the expenses of finishing the Tier One features, releasing the beta and beginnig the rollout to the market.
If we raise more than our goal, we will add all kinds of stretch bonuses, like helper videos to simplify the registration, text-based onboarding and building Tier Two features at a much faster rate.
Everything we raise in this campaign goes straight into development, marketing, and other expenses needed to make the Happy Couples Bot the best it can possibly be, reaching the widest audience.
Cool. Any Last Thoughts?
The Happy Couples Bot will be ready to serve you and your main squeeze soon, giving you both all the tools and reminders you need to make each other happy.
And what could be better than making the person you love happy?
