Gamifying engagement with your products and services
The gamification of the digital customer experience represents an important trend across vertical industries. Not only do companies today need to foster and encourage digital adoption but they also need to engage their customers by creating interactive programmes that deliver value and increase “stickinesss” in order to both gain and retain market share. Gamification can play a major role in reaching these goals.
Gamification is the process of incorporating gameplay elements into non-gaming applications to drive participation, engagement and loyalty. By “gamifying” an otherwise more sterile or standardised experience, customers can be encouraged to interact with the service provider both more often and in a more rewarding (for both customer and service provider) way.
In many market segments, particularly the youth market with its growing numbers and disposable income, gaming is already well established and the elements within games are both familiar and popular.. With this in mind, it makes sense to bring elements of gameplay into traditional Customer Value and Loyalty programmes.
