I love to win.
And if there’s a prize up for grabs?
That’s the icing on the cake!
From a gamification perspective, rewarding people properly is a BIG deal!
Offer the right prize and you’ll get people all revved up and motivated to take action. They’ll get great results and you will too!
Offer the wrong prize and you could stop people from taking action. In some cases even put people off from doing something that they would typically do… because they don’t want to win that prize!
I once took part in a competition and didn’t want to win the first or second-place prizes, but I quite fancied the third-place prize so I worked hard to get 3rd place on the leaderboard.
I don’t imagine that’s what the person running the competition had in mind, they would have benefited more from everyone trying to get first place on the leaderboard…
Some of the best prizes I’ve won have been big but some have been small.
Some have been serious but some have been silly.
Some have been exactly what I expected but some have been a huge surprise!
Have you ever been more motivated to do something because of a prize?
What prize would really motivate you to take action?
I’d love to know your thoughts…
