  13. 13. Some Tips & Lessons Learned Iteration is not as easy with many branded programs (timing, coordination, costs), so its important to deliver value quickly It was important to thoroughly understand the audience interests through research E.g. Sunpower solar genius, Jeopardy-style (vs. Wheel of Fortune style) experience Ford, auto journalists target audience enjoy the test drive Mechanics lessons: Casual, short duration play No penalty for starting late Rapid rewards for a non-gamer audience Points and rewards work on engagement leading to 20x (or more) increases Keep rewards relatively small and focus on people who care to avoid corrupting discussion Integrate social sharing from the beginning Platforms: High iOS download % 18
