Six interesting examples of gamification in ecommerce

The video game industry is worth more than $100bn worldwide, so it's no surprise that businesses are using gamification to try to boost sales.

The idea is that by adding gaming elements to the sales process, such as small challenges and rewards, you can increase customer loyalty and advocacy.  

 

As in every game or competition, the participants have to be motivated by a worthwhile reward. It’s also true that the greater the reward, the more you can ask people to do to earn the reward.

Art Jones's insight:

It will be very interesting to watch Healthcare explore ways to engage it's community via Gamification>

Thank you David, I saw a few months ago and I also read some comments from people who have completed this training.
David Bennett's comment, April 19, 2013 9:53 AM
I'm about halfway through. I am trying to see whether and how it would fit into our nascent ecommerce business. I don't see it yet, but the course has helped me to see in a gamified way.

The Internet Of Things Is Not A Shiny New Toy

The Internet Of Things Is Not A Shiny New Toy | Healthcare & Social Business Solutions | Scoop.it

The Internet of Things is the latest, greatest new buzzword du jour and every major technology company, industrial manufacturer, big retailer and health industry player has declared the IoT to be the next big thing. Each of these industries sees a way of taking advantage of tiny low-power intelligent devices or sensors and they’ve baked the IoT into their future product strategies.

These industries are so excited about the IoT that they’ve created a collective frothing-at-the-mouth level of hysteria – to the point where Cisco is even trying to rename it to the “Internet of Everything.” Whenever Cisco tries to rename something (as it did with “the Human Network”) you know we’re in trouble.


Via Alex Butler
Art Jones's insight:

The Internet of Things is a product of the miniaturization of high speed smart systems and low cost channels of connectivity. 


The outcome of all of these THINGS (ex. cars, roadways, home infrastructure for heat, air, electricity, water and all appliances, garden, grass, trees, clothing, toothbrush and hair comb) begin speaking to each other has been referred to as the time when our tools will behave as if they are enchanted because they will actually anticipate our needs.


That's a powerful notion. Life in the near future when everything is connected to everything will be like living in a Disney movie Fantasia or perhaps like being a resident of the planet Pandora of the movie Avatar where everything is connected with everything

Art Jones's insight:

"In 2009, at the depth of the recession, our nation spent almost $100 billion more on health care than it had the year before. Unfortunately, it did little to improve our health. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) recently noted that Americans “die sooner, and experience higher rates of disease and injury, than people in other high-income countries.”"

Art Jones's insight:

“While software is great and is very important, creating an actual hardware platform, an open reference design is important as well, because that allows developers to be able to manipulate sensors, and look at battery life, and create and innovate in that using this new hardware infrastructure,” Rhew said. “I don’t know of too many or any of these open hardware platforms. And that’s an interesting piece… that was launched because we wanted developers to help us with these important things like how many sensors can we put in, what type of sensors, how do we improve the battery life, the usability, the overall experience. And that’s stuff that we're going to continue to work on but we also leave it open for others to figure out.”
