In her book “Games and Gamification in Market Research: Increasing Consumer Engagement in Research” Betty Adamou tells us how games and gamification are revolutionizing the market research industry, offering opportunities to reinvigorate the notoriously sluggish engagement levels seen in traditional surveying methods.
