How Real Businesses Are Using Gamification to Spice Up Their Marketing

How Real Businesses Are Using Gamification to Spice Up Their Marketing | Alex t Business Innovation | Scoop.it
Learn everything you never knew about gamification, and how it fits into an inbound marketing strategy.

 

Gamifi-wha?

 

If that's your reaction to the word "gamification," you're in the right place.

 

You might have heard the word thrown around a bit over the last several months, but never really dug into what it is and what it means for your marketing. That's where I think most of us stand ... gamification is just one more thing to learn about, and maybe one day when we have the time (or the tide of marketing forces us to), we'll figure it out.

 

Well luckily, there's been some pioneering brands out there experimenting with gamification, and lots of research coming out of it that shows whether it's worth all of the hulabaloo. We're going to dive into it all right now in this blog post, and figure out just what this gamification thing is, whether it's useful, and how we can all use it in our marketing. Ready? Let's do this.

Deanna Dahlsad's curator insight, July 22, 2013 12:34 AM

Thought provoking, however, montetization of curation is still very limited. Scoop.It & others offer no means for monetization at all. Like content creation, & most everything on the net, compensation for cuation is still a giant question mark.

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, July 23, 2013 7:26 AM

I've heard everyone from Jaron Lanier to Tim Berners-Lee and a number of other noteworthy tech brains bring up this topic up. How do the creators of content and innovative ideas cash in on the contributions they have made that everyone is passing along and sharing? No one wants their work and thoughts stolen and most everyone I know wants creative people to keep creating what we need and want and would like them rewarded and to be able to earn a decent living doing that. This article is about how we can make sure that happens.

corneja's curator insight, July 23, 2013 5:24 PM

Thanks for this reflexion about contents and their creators in the times of the content curation!  Sorry, I didn't intend to make a rhyme. :-/

Xavier provides excellent wisdom on this essential aspect of agile teams. in our experience, product mgmt items need to be on the board, and are too often ignored or not considered. Whether it is marekting collateral, relase notes, embedded help, user training, demos, etc. this work needs to be vlsualized for a holistic understanding of the entire backlog.

This past summer I had the chance to play around a bit with a tool called the Eylean Board - an add-in for TFS that provides visual project management. In TFS 2012 we shipped a set of features to visually manage your backlog, sprint plans, etc. The Eylean Board provides a similar experience but offers a broader set of functionality (reports, configuration, flexibility) that doesn't ship out of the box with TFS. Below are some of my observations.

21 Smart Games For Game-Based Learning

21 Smart Games For Game-Based Learning | Alex t Business Innovation | Scoop.it

"

Game-Based Learning is a slippery beast.

 

For one, it promotes students playing video games, which is somewhat radical in many learning environments for anything other than recreation.

And two, there is seemingly a disconnect between what students learn while playing games (e.g., problem-solving, visual-spatial thinking, collaboration, resource management), and the pure academic standards most teachers are interested promoting mastery of.

 

In the middle, there is a simple truth that few things are as engaging–for adults and students alike–as a well-designed video game, which might just make the following list of smart, “learning games” useful to you."
