The success factor for any online community is engagement.
If the engagement rate of your community is high, your users will have a deeper connection with your brand.
While there are several ways to increase user engagement within your community, gamification usually tops the list since It helps drive actions and increase engagement.
In fact, gamification isn’t only about rewarding badges and points. It is also about ‘influencing’ user behavior in order to make better connections. It works on three principles – motivation, ability level, and triggers.
In this blog post, we take a look at the role of community managers in gamification and how ScoreNotch, takes your gamification score up a notch.
The Role of Community Managers
A community manager plays an integral role in the success of gamification.
If a community manager can understand and implement a gamification program that triggers the psychology of motivation, user engagement rate can significantly increase.
Now, if you are hosting your community on Salesforce, you might already be familiar with the limitations the CRM platform has with regard to community gamification.
Seeing the limitations of the Salesforce Experience Cloud, Grazitti’s Salesforce experts brewed up a solution, ScoreNotch.
ScoreNotch is like a magic potion for community managers to find the “happy path” for users in their community.
