10 Amazingly Successful Examples of Gamification
As the global business community grows, many business organizations are discovering and embracing the use of the concepts of gamification to market their products. Basically, gamification is the use of strategic game designs and mechanics to motivate the interested parties to achieve their objectives.
Below are some of the best examples of gamification in the business world:

The good old system of miles handed over to the taste (of coffee) of the day.
5. Nike+ Run Club
Nike+ products and services are intended to extend the Nike experience beyond the purchase. The Nike + Run Club app is no exception to this rule, and offers all running athletes the opportunity to join the community of runners using the application. This allows you to measure your efforts and follow a personalized training program adapted to your level and objectives. It also allows the sharing of race statistics on social networks, but also participate in challenges and win badges and trophies. All these features constitute a competitive mechanism, very effective in the implementation of gamification. The role of this application is not only to retain users to the brand, but also to improve and disseminate Nike's image to the sports community.

Accor Hotels uses gamification in its A | Club loyalty program: members are encouraged to synchronize the Facebook application with their Accor loyalty account and then register check-ins, for example to signal their presence in a brand hotel, via the Facebook Places app.
10. Stride Rite
Some even go further with gamification to further enrich the store experience. For example, customers earn by trying an article. This is what the brand of Stride Rite children's shoes recently did. In its outlets, kids were invited to try the models and dance in front of a screen to earn points. The best scores were rewarded with coupons.
