@jasonreilly *Like* lol and I’ve not seen the +20. WOW Just today I saw a +10 and thought, “Cool. Didn’t know they did that.”
@annfurnivall It’s not for impressing really. It’s fun to see my rank go up. Just like in real life games, I like seeing the progress. I think it fosters participation.
I think Gamification is a great idea. Take real world events (i.e. anything with a star on it was 1/2 off) and turn that into a virtual game on your site.
If you have an e-commerce site, maybe take that star idea and say:
“Everyone! We’re having an online game for all to enjoy. Find the product with the gold star and win …. or …find the product with the gold star and get 80% off!!”
Something like that. It’d need to be fleshed out, but more of the idea of taking real world marketing and turning it into virtual/online marketing.
