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.

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.

Great David, I look forward to your feedback at the end of the course.

Most doctors don’t use Facebook or Twitter professionally. A university asks: Should they?
Art Jones's insight:

Excerpt:

"Millennials account for about a quarter of current CMA members; in 10 years, they’ll comprise half. Jalali sees the looming change every day in the form of his students, who use pseudonyms on Facebook and often worry about whether employers will google them. He thinks his students might be overestimating practising physicians’ online expertise. As proof, he mentions, with a laugh, the doctors who still complain to him, “ ‘I got on Facebook and I’m getting all these friend requests.’ That’s the whole point.”

Art Jones's insight:

“We are about to see a medical revolution with little mobile devices,” he writes, and in this transformation, “smartphones will play a role well beyond a passive conduit.” They will perform blood tests, medical scans, and even parts of the physical examination. Topol calls this “bottom-up medicine,” in which digitally empowered patients will truly take charge of their own health care. Just as smartphones and social networks powered the uprisings of the Arab Spring, in Topol’s view they are now poised to bring democracy to medicine.

10 Strategies to Combat Patient Burnout @ martineehrenclou.com

10 Strategies to Combat Patient Burnout @ martineehrenclou.com | Healthcare & Social Business Solutions | Scoop.it

Many patients who have successfully battled patient burnout seem to share a similar process. They first move through a period of grieving, then arrive at acceptance of their diagnoses, and then reinvent some aspect of their lives to accommodate their conditions but also to create a new facet of their presence in the world. Many found ways to distract themselves from symptoms so they didn’t feel deluged by them. Some engaged in new forms of exercise, relaxation techniques, new employment, meditation, and activities with family and friends.

This is an important post because we will all live, prosper and one day, one day all people become patients too.

Art Jones's insight:

"The device and app alone can work quite well, but there is an historical precedent of people, including those with chronic conditions, not being interested in actively managing their own health. Let's not forget that older technical initiatives such as educational CD-ROMs and nurse-on-call programmes didn't get much traction when they were introduced years ago.

Technology may advance and change, but the same can't be said for human nature. However, adding communities of actual people to the mix – people who share the same condition, close friends and family members who have a loving stake in a person's health and well-being – will cause a transformation in empowered patient disease management."

Art Jones's insight:

"A drone can be used to deliver blood immediately as soon as a call is received, arriving fresh from a blood bank before the patient even reaches the emergency room. This can allow hospitals to avoid keeping large amounts of blood in stock, in turn reducing the overall demand for it. Moreover, drones are significantly cheaper to use for deliveries compared to helicopters. Since Mayo Clinic’s choppers make about 400 flights a year delivering blood and plasma, each costing thousands of dollars, drones can certainly be doing this job for pennies on the dollar in the near future."

Art Jones's insight:

The following three design tenets when they are embraced assure medical device developers build for products requiring no set up and out of the box ready to go:


  1. The device must work the moment the patient gets it, with no setup, no assembly, no downloads and no syncing required.
  2. The device should be used in the exact same way as the regular non-connected version of the device, so it's simple for the user.
  3. The battery in the device should last for as long as possible -- ideally multiple months -- without needing to be recharged.

How Amazon is Poised to Disrupt the Medtech Industry | MDDI Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry News Products and Suppliers

How Amazon is Poised to Disrupt the Medtech Industry | MDDI Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry News Products and Suppliers | Healthcare & Social Business Solutions | Scoop.it
Healthcare experts predict that Amazon will formally enter the healthcare marketplace in 2015 and the move will be disruptive.   Arundhati Parmar   Here's a bold prediction from the folks at Frost & Sullivan: Amazon is going to formally enter the healthcare market this year. In August, following in the footsteps of Apple and Google, the e-commerce giant met with FDA officials and generated some buzz.
Art Jones's insight:


Health Care is being tossed about by the winds (typhoon & hurricane class winds) of change. Like Dorothy's house in the Wizard of Oz health care will land somewhere. I submit that those entities that can weather the storm of change best will land safely and set the tone for the brave new world of healthcare.

There is an old saying: We can't change the wind but we can adjust the sails".
 
We all protest against the business of healthcare that has driven annual expenditures to well above 3.8 Trillion in 2014 (USA).  

I submit that with big companies preparing to join the Healthcare conversation (AMAZON) that they will be dictating the winds of change.

As of now Samsung, Apple, Google, IBM, and Alibaba are all joining the conversation as disruptors of the status quo.

Those companies will have a voice in what the future of everything #IOE looks like.

Questions:

  • Are the small entrepreneurial companies VHC cast as modern day David's standing up against a cohort of technologically empowered giants?
  • Do all of the small wellness & healthcare centric companies stand a chance?

Tech-savvy millennials express interest in using digital methods throughout the healthcare experience, from finding a doctor to managing their well-being.

After choosing a physician, millennials want to use a plethora of health technologies.
