Investor Connect Podcast

Jan 16 2023 • 1 min


Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

Gamification applies game-design techniques to applications outside of gaming.

Game techniques can make the application more engaging and productive.

Here are some gamification techniques to include in your application:

Establish flow in the software which is a combination of challenging and workable.

Break large tasks down into smaller ones that give the user a sense of accomplishment.

Create different levels with varying degrees of difficulty.

Let the user customize their workspace.

Provide rewards for accomplishing tasks.

Set up competitions so users can challenge themselves and each other.

Foster collaboration by setting up teams.

Use the story format where appropriate.

Unlock resources based on achievement or purchases.

Using these tools can generate more engagement and productivity by the user.

Consider applying gamification to your software application.

Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.

Let’s go startup something today.
