10 Ways to Get More Creative with Spinify

Spinify is a great sales dashboard choice for teams that want to make data-driven decisions and have fun doing it.

Its gamified approach means that your working day is going to become a lot more entertaining and engaging.

However, the fun doesn’t stop with the features.

Today, we’re going to show you our 10 favorite ways to make the most out of your Spinify experience.

Let’s take a look!

1. Customize Everything

Spinify comes with some pretty cool presets, if we may say so ourselves.

However, the real trick to Spinify creativity is in customization. You can customize everything:

  • KPIs
  • Achievements and badges
  • Tiers and levels
  • Contests
  • Visuals

For example, let’s say someone on your sales team started an inside joke about penguins, and now everyone is rolling on the floor laughing whenever someone mentions them.

You could literally set up penguin-themed badges and leaderboards, pair up your reps for penguin-themed contests, and much more.

Ultimately, when you customize your Spinify dashboard to fit your team’s style, you’ll see much higher user adoption rates than with any other dashboard software. 

2. Is it Onboarding, or Is It a Quest?

Onboarding is usually the most tedious part of a sales team’s process. Even the new employees don’t like it.

But what if you could make it fun?

What if you could turn the process of onboarding into a quest?

With Spinify, reaching this level of creative is as simple as 1, 2, 3:

  1. Set up specific KPIs for onboarding and training
  2. Choose interesting tiers (e.g. Level 1 Sales Mage)
  3. Hand out badges for specific achievements (e.g. Maya won her first sale)
  4. Celebrate with quest-y music
  5. Reward the rep

Since Spinify is 100% gamified, you can really make your onboarding seem like playing an old-school RPG!

3. Celebrate Achievements with Music

Recognition is key to success. 69% of employees stated that they would work harder if they felt their efforts were appreciated.

And is there anything better than music to show appreciation for your team members’ hard work? 

With Spinify, every rep can choose their special celebratory music. 

Whenever they reach a significant milestone, achievement, or hit their target, the music will start playing, allowing them to bask in the glory.

In the long term, this is going to make your sales reps a lot more motivated. 

Plus, it’s an easy way to integrate recognition into your company culture. 

4. As Seen on TV

Spinify comes with support for unlimited devices (PC, mobile, and TV). 

Your sales reps are getting notifications on their phones, and working on their laptops. This means that your office TV is the perfect place to motivate them.

You can:

  • Display the most relevant leaderboard on your office TVs, visualizing the scores and motivating your sales reps to improve their performance. Spinify will even keep track of reps overtaking one another, and display gamified notifications. 
  • Count down to important deadlines. If you’re running a sales day, or the end of the quarter is approaching, you can set up a countdown in Spinify. Then, display it on your office TVs to remind your reps that there’s no time like the present. 

5. Share Motivational Messages

Spinify is great at helping you motivate your reps. However, you can do a lot more than just keep score.

You can also share motivational messages.

Congratulate individual reps on their achievements, or on their progress. Motivate teams to put in the work, and remind them of the rewards.

Since Spinify makes it easy to keep track of performance and forecast future results, it’ll show you reps’ strengths and weaknesses.

Then, you can display motivational messages accordingly.

6. Improve User Adoption

Spinify is fun to use, which in itself removes the majority of barriers to user adoption.

However, if you want to onboard your team as soon as possible, it’s time to put your Spinified TV to good use:

Incentivize your reps with messages.

Encourage your reps to sync their CRM with Spinify to log data, and track their own performance. Set up leaderboards during the onboarding period, and reward reps who logged the most activities. 

And speaking of great performance…

7. It’s Reward Time!

Bonuses are great, but you can’t use them to motivate your reps every time.

Instead, you can use Spinify to set up an interesting reward store.

When your reps earn points, they will be able to redeem them in the reward store.

Your rewards are completely up to you. However, our users love the following:

  • Tickets for cool events
  • Small gifts
  • Favors (e.g. If a rep gets a lot of points, you can give them the “Skip” reward – leave work an hour early on a Friday) 

8. Set Up Coaching Contests

You can improve your company culture with Spinify, too!

Since Spinify keeps track of every rep’s performance, you’ll get customized coaching insights. 

Then, pair up your reps with complementary strengths and weaknesses to help them bring out the best in each other.

9. There’s No “I” in “Team”

While sales reps are competitive by nature, you can help them work together with Spinify’s teamwork features.

Divide reps into teams who have a common target.

The team that hits the target first is the winner. 

However, you can also customize the goal; from performing revenue-driving activities to exhibiting desired behaviors.

10. Ready Player One

If using Spinify sounds like playing a game, then we did our jobs right!

The goal of gamification is to make routine processes as fun as playing your favorite game.

And as we all know – every player has their player stats.

Customize your reps’ profiles to reflect their progress, and give them the chance to celebrate the way they want to.

And just know: you’re in good hands.

Not even the sky is the limit when you motivate your team with Spinify!
