Benefits of Congratulations Add-on:

  • Celebrate achievements in real-time
  • Encourage or incentivize your users to keep engaging and to take the next step, keeping their momentum going
  • Keep your audience wondering what activities they do or complete on your site may next trigger a feel-good moment 
  • Use the BadgeOS Congratulations Text in BadgeOS to make users feel great about their progress 
  • Great for activity or community triggers, where the user may not even realize they are completing steps towards an achievement  — like logging in a certain number of times, posting comments or forum messages, or completing an important grouping of achievements.
  • Put the spotlight squarely on user achievement at exactly the moment it happens! Neuroscience research indicates that these dopamine-releasing moments “prompt the brain seek future opportunities to repeat the action” (Willis). That means more engagement in your site and programs.
