One of the biggest challenges companies face is improving their on-site engagement.
All companies want their customers to consume more of their content.
Here at Captain Up our game mechanics help people to increase social activities, increase engagement, and manage on-site visitors. From incentivizing community members with badges, levels, and missions, to rewarding them for sharing content, we know how to keep users engaged.
A few months ago, we had the opportunity of working with McAfee & HP on their successful ‘Back to School’ campaign.
In order to give you some insights and reveal some of the things we did to increase the campaign’s engagement, we have created a short case study.Read more
By installing the App from the Shopify store you can get a 30 days of free trial or upgrade to one of our extended plans.
Using Captain app on your Shopify store will give you all of the superpowers that come with integrating Captain Up:
Track and incentivize any user action
Custom badges and levels
Deep analytics on user behavior
Activity and leaderboard widgets
In-app messages and notification
Custom theme and design
We’ve been working closely with some of our users to learn more on how Captain Up is affecting their blogs and ecommerce sites, and I have to say I’m thrilled to see their numbers going up almost magically. We will share some case studies with you real soon.
We have some new graphics for you, just in time for the holidays: the Holiday badge pack designed by the awesome Reut Kersz, and the Shiny level pack by Hamutzim, both live now. Holiday works great as a seasonal theme, featuring trees, gifts, bells, and mistletoe, and Shiny gives you elegant and snazzy level graphics for the whole year round. You can check them out right now in your admin panel.
One of the greatest things about Captain Up is the viral boost – as soon as you plug it in, people start Tweeting, Liking, and sharing more. The only problem is you have to add all those sharing buttons first. They don’t always work, they don’t all look that good – they’re a hassle.
Well, hassle no more! We’ve just launched the new share widget, adding native Like and Tweet buttons right on the floating launcher.
The share widget saves you the trouble of installing these share buttons yourself, and also makes sure that every one of these viral actions will get registered every time, ensuring users get that instant positive feedback that makes your viral impact grow and grow.
The share widget is on by default and you should be able to see it on any site or app using our launcher widget. Go give it a go, and let us know how you like it in the comments below.
We’re still working on this feature and adding more options.
