Amazon’s Experience Boosting Engagement with User Rewards
Mike Hines will talk about how rewards can promote engagement and retention. Armed with research and data, Mike will share what Amazon has learned about where and when to offer rewards, guidance on what kind of rewards to offer, and the right and wrong ways to use rewards. You’ll also learn how to pay for engagement programs only after you get the engagement.
