Their team knew that they needed a way to engage with sTARTUpday attendees and make it difficult for people to not stop at their demo booth. So, instead of just having one employee giving out freebies all day long (which would be pretty boring), the company came up with an idea: what if we gamified this? This is the story about how they did this.
Checkout.com team about their gamification solution
We wanted a fun and interesting game that would engage people during a Startup Day event as there are a lot of attendees and as a company you need to stand out. With the help of Adact’s team, we figured that a thought-provoking and challenging game called Wordle would be the best option for us.
The game was very easy to set up thanks to the user-friendly interface. We could easily set the whole game up in a couple of hours. Being so easy to use came in handy when it came to analytics. With a couple of clicks, we could export all the information collected about each player: their name, company email, and if needed, telephone number.
About the game itself… We weren’t expecting that many people to come and play! We printed out QR codes and laid them out in our demo area to redirect them to the game site. This was enough to catch attention as QR code always raises curiosity. When they started playing, we always interacted with them and gave hints about what the answer might be. This way of connecting to the people made it very non-intrusive and fun. There were even a couple of people who asked if they could play again with different questions.
