  34. 34. Things to beware of in gamification• Bolting on points, reward, badges does not create gamifcation experience• Bribing with real or virtual currency and rewards may only work in the short term• Reputation online is not equal to achievement offline• In order to compete people can game the system so spam filters need to detect this
  35. 35. Parting thoughts• Gamification as with all new concepts and technologies is cool and can solve, improve, address some real world challenges.• Many practioners of alchemy pursued the elixir of life or immortality but it is not the path to utopia• The following are some questions to think about.
  36. 36. Parting thoughts • How will your customers, users experience in the real world the challenge you are trying to address? • What other forms of media are involved? • Is your core product, service compelling? If its not gamification may provide the sizzle but not the steak. • Gamification is a long term outlook, rather than a short-term fix so look at your time horizon and what resources you can commit to it. • As with innovation, ROI using gamification is hard to measure. There are quantitative and qualitative measures. Define your success.Reference: Gamification 101 by Bunchball
