Leaderboarded’s formula feature allows creation of sophisticated scoring systems by combining metrics and embedding your own scoring rules.

Today we are adopting the OASIS OpenFormula standard to ensure our formula language will develop in line with the community standard.

Our first functions are rounding functions – ROUND, ROUNDUP and ROUNDDOWN.

If you have any formula you’d like to see accelerated on the road map then please suggest it

Leaderboarded.com launched a new product today designed for event managers to drive pre-event buzz around their event hashtag.

 

CEO Toby Beresford explains “many event managers let social media fend for itself, often creating an event hashtag but minimally promoting it. They are missing a trick. The huge advantage of a hashtag being used in the run up to event is that it builds digital buzz – that sense of excitement is often the signal people look at when whether to attend in person or not. Driving up digital buzz pre-event can increase attendance, ticket sales and community engagement at the event itself. “

 

To work the tool all you need is an event hashtag and a name for your ‘ambassadors’, then you publish the results weekly as a news bulletin, gradually warming up your audience week by week.  The Leaderboarded tool tracks all Twitter activity around the hashtag for you and gives the ambassadors points when they are tweeted, mentioned or retweeted by others.

 

Events guru William Thomson of Gallus events recommends giving your ambassadors a name that is in keeping with your event theme – for example with his “Who Stole My Audience” event the ambassadors would be named “The Usual Suspects”.

 

While some event managers like to incentivise their ambassador programs, it’s not a pre-requisite. “Generally speaking event ambassadors don’t need additional incentives” says Beresford “a good ambassador program is all about being seen to belong to a cadre of core supporters rather than doing it for some extrinsic prize.”

 

Social media expert Nat Schooler (@natschooler) used Leaderboarded to promote the Dentistry Show earlier this year with stunning results – “Our event ambassador board created so many interactions that our weekly twitter feed has gone from 85,000 impresssions per week to an average of around 500,000” he said.

 

The tool is priced per ambassador with pricing started at £9.99 per month for a small event up to around £100 per month for a larger event. To try it out free for 7 days, visit http://www.leaderboarded.com/genie/hashtag and sign up with your event Twitter account and enter your hashtag.

 

Leaderboarded is a previous winner of the Event Technology Awards Best Use of Social Media category.

A new feature released this morning gives you the ability to name your players.

We’re looking to forward to some really good names – stars, heroes, suspects, consultants, gurus. The opportunities are endless.

For example on the Social MPs leaderboard instead of calling the MPs players we’ve called them MPs.

We’ve got a few interesting new features for you for July:

Export Past Performance

- you can now export the past performance of any of your players to a CSV format for processing in Excel. This allows you to offer a detailed monitoring service and reporting to your players.

Join leaderboard

- you can now configure a ‘Join this leaderboard’ button for your leaderboards. Players can join your leaderboard simply by using their Leaderboarded accounts. New players are automatically added to the Included player list and will be included in future polls and releases of your leaderboard.

Release Reports

- each release now has its own dedicated report. This shows email stats so if you’re using leaderboarded to build an email channel to players and followers you can track the success of that approach.

Email sponsors

- you can now configure sponsor logos and links to be included in every release email. This ensures your leaderboard sponsor has their brand wherever the leaderboard is seen.

Many cloud vendors, in an effort to satisfy the understandable security and privacy worries of CIOs, downplay what is for me the true benefit of the cloud – the network effect.  The more people on a single service, the more value it has for me as an individual.

Instead cloud vendors talk up the value of being able to scale up and down quickly- to add and remove servers at will in response to traffice. I think that’s all well and good but a bit techie, and a marginal benefit to be honest, that’s more the benefit of outsourcing your server farm. After all if I could probably do the same thing by ringing up my hosting supplier and buying another server for them to plug it in. Sure it’s not that fast but really? Is that worth all the fuss around ‘cloud’?

The true value of the cloud is the network effect – the fact that when we are all using the same database, we can share data in response to business need. The business services that are breaking the mould are giving businesses new ways to collaborate, and fast:

  • Dropbox lets me share folders with a new supplier or customer within a second – that’s the true power of the cloud
  • Google Docs lets me collaborate on a spreadsheet with customers and partners within a second – that’s the  true power of the  cloud.
  • Leaderboarded lets me provide a scorekeeping service for internal staff, external ambassadors within a second – that’s the  true power of the  cloud.

Isn’t it time we stopped putting all our effort into essentially valueless private clouds and started using and creating services that leveraged the true power of the cloud – the network effect?

I’ve been saying this so often recently I just thought I’d make sure it was on the blog.  Leaderboarded provides a technology for you to run your own Nike+ style program so your brand can give additional value to your customers around their core motivations.

Let’s compare Nike + and  how Zoopla have created a Zoopla + program for their customers, estate agents, called the Zoopla Property Power 100.

Nike+: Lets footwear customers track performance in the activity they really care about and the reason they buy footwear – Running

ZPP100: Lets online marketing customers track performance in another activity area for online marketing – Social Media

 

Oh yes, they are exactly the same from a strategic marketing point of view.

The only difference is cost:

Nike+: Millions of pounds and a lot of hard work

ZPP100: Hundreds of pounds and learning to use Leaderboarded.

 

What’s not to like?

We’ve reshuffled the UX as part of our ongoing plan to simplify Leaderboarded.

A key change is we’re phasing out support for rapid update leaderboards (always up to date, near real time and hourly) in line with the lightweight gamification model. Now all leaderboards must be either daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly. Read more on why leaderboards are best throttled.

We’re also phasing out the term ‘release’ in favour of publish. We think you’ll agree it’s a bit more user friendly.

In other changes we’ve moved Connectors under metrics and added an ‘Add Metric’ button which adds a connector but for new users is more understandable.

Overall we’re trying to improve the Custom Leaderboard template to make this the number one way people create and manage leaderboards for their projects.

Let us know what you think and keep us posted if these changes radically break or affect the way you manage your leaderboards.

Posted by & filed under Features.

We released a useful feature a while back to a subset of leaderboarders called “Formulas”.

You can see them in action on boards like the Elite Technology VCs board where an ‘Engagement score’ is being calculated using formulas for each firm in each of the main social media channels.

Formulas are now available to all so we’re looking forward to seeing how you use them to create engaging experiences to motivate team performance.

I’d recommend using formulas in the following ways:

  • Ratios – rank players on ratios rather than absolute numbers e.g. (Retweets / Followers ) * 1000 = Retweets per 1000 followers
  • Averages – rank players on their average performance over time – e.g. Tweets / 7 = Tweets per day.
  • Percentage Achieved – rank players on their performance against their quota – e.g. Sales Revenue / Quota * 100 = % Quota completed

Those are just three ways to use formulas in your leaderboards, let us know other ways you want to use them.

I’m delighted to announce the Gamification Gurus for 2014 taking into account activity and promotion of gamification over the past year, in particular over public social media.

It was great fun giving out the awards at the Gamification World Congress last night as there were so many gurus in the room. The reality is that everyone on the gurus list is a leader within our nascent gamification community and worth recognising. We are all the gamification revolutionaries! Thank you all for your hard work in
educating the world about gamification.

The Gamification Gurus 2014 are:
