GCo’s New Gamification Features Powered by BigDoor
How much gamification could GamificationCo game if GamificationCo could gamifiy its GamificationCo blog?
Well that didn’t work so great. Let me try again.
Gamification Co now officially has gamification elements built into the site! As a proponent of gamification, it only makes sense that Gamification Co adopts some of these engagement practices.
Users should be rewarded for their actions, so now we’re rewarding our community for engaging with Gamification Co. Now you can earn points, badges, and some special rewards for watching videos, reading news stories, sharing our media, and even simply visiting the site.
Taavi Lindmaa, the head of our new gamification project, has some advice for earning points:
“Above all, we encourage everyone to continue helping us build our community gamification database, The GBase. Submitting your favorite examples of gamification will be the best way to earn points, build a valuable community resource, and win our awesome prizes”
Some of the prizes include Gabe Zichermann’s books, a 1-on-1 discussion with a gamification expert, and even free tickets to GSummit SF 2013!
Perhaps most importantly, we wanted to give our readers on what a gamification system might look like and how interaction with one feels like.
Powered by the BigDoor gamification system, we would like to showcase some of the standard game mechanics that could be used in a gamification system and promote an open-discussion of the appropriate uses and efficacy of these mechanics.
BigDoor also made some statements about powering our new gamification system:
BigDoor has worked with Gabe since the beginning and we have been a proud sponsor and supporter of his for years including the very first GSummit. Gamification.co is an important source for gamification news, insight and topics on the web. By adding our gamified loyalty platform to the site, we have an awesome opportunity to showcase our platform to a large number of readers and visitors who are already interested in gamification’s potential.
Gamification.co already has a lot of great content. With the BigDoor platform we expect to increase consumption, sharing and engagement with existing site content while encouraging anonymous visitors to sign in and register.
BigDoor’s network wide stats show user registration lifts of 50%, 25% more user engagement and 20% more return visits. While specific sites will display different results based on a number of factors, we expect to see significant positive results on GCo.
We’re excited to be able to provide this new gamification experience for our great community with the help of BigDoor and we’re definitely looking forward to rewarding our most engaged followers.
