Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Would that it were so. I LIKE the idea of this infographic - that gamification is easy. I haven't found that to be the case, but like the idea. Our websites and content marketing must become more game-like to create the communities and engagement needed to develop ROI.

In my experience gamifying takes commitment, time and resources. You fail much more than you succeed at first, so patience is also needed. That said the social / mobile web is a "gamers" paradise.

Meaning the more your content creates social reinforcement, fun and joy the better. One of your 2015 goals should be either to gamify outright or find little ways to make interacting with your site / company / brand more game-like. That I agree with :). M

12 Ideas for Facebook Contests (12 Ideas for Facebook Contests http://t.co/R4nUAcDBNR)
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Had higher hopes for this infographic. Granted focusing on KNOWN holidays is always smart retailing, but wanted cool ideas such as:

* Facebook Friends Contests - Can you get your Facebook friends to do some good? 
* Facebook LIVE - Stream content live to Facebook and hold a contest to see who does this best / has most interesting stream. 
* Facebook Picture Contest - adaptable to any business vertical and idea since Facebook is about pictures primarily. 
* Facebook Question Contest - every business can use this one too. 
* Best Parents / Grandparents / Kids on Facebook contest - not sure what the judging criteria would be here but love the social media generation. 

Make sure rewards are more SOCIAL than material and read Pink's book Drive for why. No matter what be sure to pull links back to owned properties or you just make FB richer and they don't need your money (you do :).

Social Media As Means To Gamification End: Credit Cards Go Social [Infographic] | Social Media Today

Social Media As Means To Gamification End: Credit Cards Go Social [Infographic] | Social Media Today | Contests and Games Revolution | Scoop.it
There is obviously a thrill behind someone giving you a card with “free money” on it to buy whatever your heart desires. However, as appealing as having money on a card to spend on your needs and wants is, there are consequences.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Social Media As Means To Gamification End
Credit Card companies, far from being dealt fatal blows by the death of money, are stronger than ever. They may face some interesting competition from Bitcoin at some point, but that point isn't today.

Today Credit Card Companies are jumping into social with both feet. Social for some is a means unto itself. Social Media marketing for Credit Card companies is a means to an end. 

Social media gets Credit Card companies living in the same place as their prey - college students. College students live on their phones, love to play games and may be the last tribe of pack animals on the planet. 

No wonder, as this infographic shows, Credit Card companies are embracing social so earnestly you can almost see the glint of greed in their eye.

The future of gamification is bright because it works. I've read the Gartner report saying 80% will fail and I agree, Failure is a big part of being an Internet marketer. Helpful to see the scope of gamifications' timeline in this infographic.

Gamification has quickly become a super trend in marketing, customer retention and employee engagement. Check out this new infographic: The Business of Gamification.

Marty Note
Not sure why this is an infographic, but information is helpful and well presented. Gamification WORKS online. Don't be turned off by the famous Forrester report saying 80% of all gamification will fail. Duh, 80% of anything online fails. Gamification connects visitors to your content or THEIR content on YOUR website (even better). Gamification rocks online marketing.
