All site owners will understand that engaging users is possibly one of the biggest challenges.
You may write awesome content, promote it on every social platform, and get thousands of views a day. But that dreaded question that we all hate being asked is “Are your users engaging with your content?”
We’re proud to present our new collaboration with top gamification guru Yu-kai Chou, who has been creating the Engaging Website Design series featuring Captain Up – videos about making websites more engaging, especially by means of gamification.
This first video explains what you should look for in a gamification platform. One of the most important things is flexibility, customizability. Every site is different, your users and your content are unique, so you don’t want just some general cookie-cutter solution. You want a solution which you can tailor to fit your unique situation.
If you aren’t a programmer, you also want to make sure to choose a user-friendly platform that you can implement and customize without learning a whole new skill. You’ll also want to make sure that your gamification platform works well with the platform your site is based on (WordPress, in Yu-kai’s case.)
All of these are major reasons why Yu-kai chose Captain Up, he explains. Watch the video to hear more, and to get a look at how he customizes Captain Up for his site, what tools Captain Up gives you, and what things you can do using your Captain Up dashboard.
