BRIEF

The Karmafy platform delivers improved user retention and engagement for mobile apps, web-based productivity tools and e-commerce. Through carefully designed goals, motivational rewards and collaborative challenges, the Karmafy experience magnifies a client’s existing products and user base. Karmafy adds a multiplier effect for existing services that engages users – games will benefit from considerably boosted engagement, retention and improved social presence.

CUSTOMER PROBLEM

Companies and brands whose primary focus is online and mobile are facing steadily increasing user acquisition and retention costs; as well as challenges to how they maintain user loyalty with their services. Existing solutions such as paid user acquisition, ad-networks and cross-
promotion quickly become very expensive, especially on major social networks such as Facebook.

THE KARMAFY SOLUTION

Karmafy is a B2B solution that allow companies to improve their “triple bottom line” through deeper engagement with users. Karmafy’s unique online platform builds upon years of experience in engagement design and philanthropy. Through a dynamic and metrics driven gamification system, Karmafy points are awarded accordingly to users as they engage and transact within a service. This fully scriptable and flexible platform assign points to users as they continuously meet engagement and behavioural objectives. Users can expend their accumulated points by selecting donations from a variety of vetted and high impact good causes. Accumulated points are automatically converted into a cash donation, enhancing customer goodwill, willingness to engage and increases the user’s perceived brand value, service appreciation while encouraging social sharing.
