Can't Do It In Real Life? Do It by using Glassdoor coins.
Glassdoor is an online employment platform on which individuals can rate their former and current employers. Furthermore, companies can advertise to job seekers and post jobs on the site.
Today, Glassdoor welcomes over 50 million people every month on its platform. Over 10 million job listings and 60 million reviews, salaries, and (interview) insights have been shared to date.
Goal: To Grow the number of ratings & reviews on the platform
Glassdoor users(from a reviews perspective) = People who Read and Write reviews + People who only come to Read (majority chunk )
Business Problem: Monthly, the number of new reviews on the platform is significantly low compared to the number of users who visits the platform.
"Why write reviews" is still a question for many users
Validated in primary research about Glassdoor:
from 100% of users have never/rarely used Glassdoor
from 100% of users said they use glassdoor just to read reviews
12.5M users visited Glassdoor last month but only 0.62M new reviews are published last month.
Validated in secondary research about Glassdoor:
Users Problem: Users are lacking the motivation/need to write reviews.
Interesting fact: Amazon, they have over 15K reviews on Glassdoor. Yet, they have over 300K employees now, which only makes up 5% of the current employee population – not considering that former employees post many reviews.
Growing the number of ratings and reviews on the platform = No. Of users who didn't give any review so far + people who gave a review in the last month but haven't given one for the current month + people who gave a review in the past but haven't given one in the lastest month
71.2% of users are students and in the not working stage. They primarily use glassdoor to read reviews before interviews
DEEP DIVE INTO USER BEHAVIOR AND PROBLEMS Analyses were performed on a user survey (23 Responses) and 10 user interviews to better understand users' behavior and pain points at each stage of the user journey in Glassdoor, especially when it comes to adding reviews and ratings.

WHY TO SOLVE IT? As the business problem mentioned above is validated, it is clear that users are lacking the motivation to add reviews. With around 59M unique monthly users, there are only 114m Reviews are there from almost 15 Years of operations. Hence it is important to create motivation/need amongst users to "Add Review". Solving this problem not only increases the number of reviews on the platform but also will increase the accuracy of the reviews and will increase SEO ranking on search engines which will increase the opportunities for revenue in the future.
WHO IS FACING THE PROBLEM?
User behavior and needs:
Sameer Age 21 Engineering Student
Mostly opens Glassdoor at the time of applying to that specific company. As a fresher, wants to get interview insights to prepare well for the interview. As time is not a big factor, love to keep searching and consuming other company reviews as well.
Pain Points: Often finds lack of need to write reviews on the platform Confused between various types of reviews and ratings on the platform.
User behavior and needs:
Kiara Age 29 Software Developer and now looking for better CTC offers.
Mostly search about the company on Google and then land on the platform. The primary goal of searching is to get insights about salary and other perks of the company. Curious to see what kind of reviews her company is having on the platform.
Pain Points: Finding accurate insight into a company's salary and perks is hard She is not feeling inspired to write a review for the current company she works for.
Reframing the problem Statement: Users often find a lack of need/motivation to give any kind of ratings and review on the platform because users feel it is waste of time and it won't be beneficial for them. At the same time, users are confused between various types of reviews they can add and eventually drops the idea of giving ratings and reviews. Users find adding ratings and reviews page UI not engaging and it leads to leaving the platform before completing the review form.

METRICS TO MEASURE SUCCESS
Number of new reviews per month per user North Star Metric:
At present, we can only give one company review as a current/former employer per company per year. The "verified user" feature can also be introduced, in which users must be verified before they can write multiple reviews. A strict community guideline and proprietary technology filters and algorithms that analyze multiple content attributes, including attempts at spamming and abuse, can be introduced to ensure content is curated and accurate.
For the sake of Glassdoor Coins, there is a slight chance of fake reviews.
PITFALLS, MITIGATIONS AND FUTURE PLANNING
Number of new users giving ratings and reviews on the platform. Number of new visits on the rewards tab per month.
Number of users giving reviews and ratings/number of new visits per month.
CTR of the Rewards tab % of users writing reviews by clicking on the write review button. % of users claiming the Glassdoor coins with the curated rewards.
Average time spends on the rewards tab per user per month. CTR of Write a review to redeem button.
% of ratings and reviews by the past inactive users(users who do not give any ratings and reviews till now) per month.
Number of users sharing rewards news by clicking on the share button per month.
Referral The number of fake/repeated ratings and reviews may increase.
It will be more beneficial to implement gamification into the Ratings and Reviews User Interface in the future. This will increase conversion rates for giving ratings and reviews since users will feel enthusiastic about doing so. With this approach, the number of ratings and reviews will also increase over time with minimal effort.
