Gamifying a chore can reframe how a user feels about a product.
For example, my project - ProsperCircle.org helps people find a remote job.
Even though people who are looking for a job are motivated to find one, job search feels like a chore.
I'm trying to see how can I use gamification techniques to make it more fun.
I did some quick research on gamification in the last hour and the mechanics to create a successful gamification process include:
If you have any ideas on how to incorporate gamification techniques in a job board, I'd love to hear it out.
After posting this last night, I started googling around and came across this nice video from Rahul Vohra (founder, Superhuman) - https://a16z.com/2020/01/13/game-design-not-gamification/
I think a better term here would be "Game Design"
I think "Game Design" has some legs, most people haven't figured it out.
And maybe that is the advantage. If you figure it out you will have an advantage before everyone does it.
Or maybe I'm chasing down a rabbit hole ;)
Only the month of July will tell...
