Misconception 1:
Gamification is expensive.

Many believe that gamification requires a substantial investment, deterring many marketers from exploring games as a marketing tool. The assumption that a game must be developed from scratch can lead to the perception of high costs. Custom game designs, programming, and testing can add up, especially when it's thought that a unique game is needed for each new campaign.

Misconception 2:
Gamification is complicated.

Game development is often seen as a technically complex process requiring specialized knowledge in software development, graphic design, and user experience (UX). There's a belief that integrating games into campaigns requires advanced technical expertise.

Misconception 3:
Gamification is time-consuming.

Developing a game from scratch can be a lengthy process, involving planning, design, development, testing, and implementation. This can be particularly time-consuming when there are no existing gamification frameworks or platforms used.

In summary, there are many reasons why some choose not to implement gamification. However, these misconceptions don't hold up when we consider the possibilities of our 15 pre-built games.
