Loyalty is about creating a unique and interactive dialogue with your brand advocates and gamification, as practiced by thought leaders such as Bunchball, will enhance the efficacy of all marketing programs.
Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) April 17, 2012
People have fundamental needs and desires - for reward, status, achievement and competition, among others. Games have long been a place where those needs have been met. But how do you satisfy these needs outside of actual games? Say, in a loyalty program? Gamification.
Gamification is emerging as a dynamic force in the marketing arena, and can be a powerful tool to unlock deep consumer engagement, but only if it is done right. On Thursday April 26, 2012 at 1 PM EST Barry Kirk, VP of Loyalty and Motivation at Bunchball and a recognized expert and speaker in the loyalty and motivation industry, will be presenting a webinar, Creating Loyalty 3.0: How Game Thinking is Changing the Rulebook on Consumer Engagement and Loyalty.

- The three keys to effective consumer gamification
- The business value of gamification
- Using analytics to drive the gamified experience
- Case studies of consumer engagement driven by gamification initiatives at brands like Adobe, USA Networks, Warner Bros. and others.
