Six interesting examples of gamification in ecommerce

Six interesting examples of gamification in ecommerce | Marketing Education | Scoop.it

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.

Well I’ve put together a list below of the best ideas I’ve heard and personally used. I hope you find it useful!

 

The three basic strategies to starting a business without much money are:

Delay the normal “business starting” activities like incorporating, hiring, renting office or retail space, etc until AFTER your business has started earning money. This is known as bootstrapping. Doing everything yourself and spending your personal time instead of hiring an expert. (Takes longer but costs less.) Using some neat tricks and little known deals below.
