Gamification is a hot term these days - but what does it really mean?  At it's core, Gabe Zichermann explains in the video below from the NY Founder Institute, gamification is simply a way to look at customer loyalty campaigns as not about tangible customer value, but rather about status.

Gabe is the author of "Game-Based Marketing," founder of gamification.co, chair of the Gamification Summit and Workshops, and I almost forgot: the leader of the NY Founder Institute. 

If you like the video below, follow Gabe on Twitter, or check out his upcoming gamification conference:

Gamification Summit NYC (September 15-16, 2011 in New York City) is the must-attend event that demonstrates how to leverage the power of games to create breakthrough engagement with your customers and employees. Previous GSummit events have sold out within weeks.
