SA’s Community Advantage: Gamify Your Community With Badges!


Gamification and surveys have been talked about for a about 5 years now. Survey wise, it can be a hit and miss.The area that really shows true gamification and true motivation is by applying a badge system to the communities you are managing for research. Badges have been used for years to illustrate someone earning a reward or unlocking an achievement. Used by many other companies, most famously by Foursquare, they indicate the attainment of a goal in either a game or a non-game setting. Psychologically, they can be very powerful. Badges can evoke engagement, increased competition, and incentivizes users to keep moving forward. In relation to surveys, this is very valuable. By rewarding participants with badges, it keeps them hungry for more. Take a look at the following slides to learn more about badges and see how easy they are to set up.



As mentioned before, a badge is a visual tool that is used to indicate a reward or achievement by a person. When a person completes a task, such as completely filling out their profile, they earn the "Profile Verified" badge. While badges don't always appeal to everyone, they are usually effective at boosting engagement, stirring up some friendly competition, and encouraging game-like thinking in a non-game setting.



We have 5 badges already pre-loaded into your Survey Analytics account. They include "Points Bandit", "Lifetime Achievement", "Community Leader", "Profile Verified" and "WIFLY". Each of the 5 badges has a cute little image and all stand for different things. For example, when someone downloads the SurveySwipe app from the app store, they are rewarded with the "WIFLY" badge!




Adding badges to your panel is extremely fast. Simply log into your Survey Analytics account, click on "Panel" across the top bar and scroll down a bit until you see "Badges" on the left. There you will see a list of the 5 badges we have provided, as well as the opportunity to add or edit your own. Click "Edit" to edit a badge.




Once you have added the badges you want, click "Apply Badges". This only take a second to refresh, and you can even leave the page if you need to. Once it says 100% it is done adding the badges to your panel.




If you would like to add your own badges, that is an option as well.  We hope you enjoy this feature in our community management solution. To learn more about badges and our community tool join us for an upcoming webinar on December 4th, 2014.

Integration image.jpeg


Why is an API integration so beneficial for Community management solutions? Let's think about your day working on your community and the research projects. Do you want to spend copious amounts of time manually exporting and importing profiling information and data between your community and your internal database? How many hours do you suspect this would be? Your time is better spent running projects and analyzing the results. Let our API integration do the heavy lifting! It will allow your database to talk to ours and pull or push data on a scheduled basis.



The Community API from Survey Analytics allows users to access their community through an API and perform view, create and add operations. Users may want to know what fields are present in the panel, access specific member details and update the same. Clients will call a URL entailing the request type and pass specific details as required by the API call. The information will be in JSON format.


Available Community API calls include:


  • Create/Update Panel Members Record
  • Export Panel Members Data
  • Export Reward Stats
  • Export Panel Members Data for Active Campaigns Batches

With December just around the corner, the end of the year will be here before you know it. 2014 has been great, but we're already on the hunt for what's up and coming in the world of marketing and social media in 2015. According to this article by FastCompany, ever since the Facebook algorithm change, the reach and attention span for your audience on Facebook and Twitter is dwindling. So, they suggest putting more of your marketing efforts into email. On top of that, the era of "selling" is over. It is time to start delivering fresh content that answers their questions and provides consistent value. The popularity of online communities is on the rise as well, as demonstrated in the article by Sony's PlayStation 4. Learn more about community building and tactics in our upcoming webinar on 12/3.
