Shockwaves

Shockstar Membership

The more ideas that you share and posts that you publish gains you shock points, after reaching a certain amount of shock points (perhaps 500) you are able to become a 'shockstar', which gives you VIP membership with exclusive access to otherwise 'locked' areas of the website, extra rewards and chances to be entered into prize draws through participation in other features!

Again, another idea I love! It would give the product the whole "elitist" feel that it's nice to experience when you are someone who promotes the brand a lot, but then the fact that you'd get rewarded for doing it too would make it seem more worth while! Plus it would encourage a lot more people to be active in using Shockwaves just to get the rewards.

tinkadele, I love the word shockstar for a kick off, maybe being a platinum shockstar means you get tickets for the rockstar with the most voted for hair style?

That sounds awesome to me, double win! I like the idea of 'platinum shockstar' too, I was trying to think of possible rank titles for each point goal reached that were related to hair and I think this works well!

glad you like it! I've been away from shockwaves today - too exhausted to catch up with everything now, but looking forward to reading more ideas tomorrow.

I don't blame you, the community has been quite productive today! :)

Haha indeed we were! Thinking again about blending ideas together, you could have the secret parties that Guy was talking about and people with platinum shockstar status could be the ones that get the details about the parties as another reason to try and gain points!

thanks BeckyC. Combining this with Secret Parties is a fine idea.

Hi, I do like this idea and as communities like this one thrive on a similar system, it is already a concept which is proven to work and if shockwave wanted to encourage more uploads then this would be a great way to achieve that.

sounds good but will it cost alot ?

I think a company such as Shockwaves should be able to implement an idea like this, it's been voted quite highly in the community because I think it is one of the more likely methods to encourage people to upload. The only real cost would be in rewards and products for prize draws which will actually be few and far between. :)

yer your right there but what about advertising this ?

I figured it would be a feature on the website so anyone who engages with Shockwaves anywhere... there or social media would get to find out about it. Or, like with this community, I was invited here via a survey that I completed so perhaps something like that would gain members? I'm not entirely sure, maybe other people have better ideas for how to get the word out! :-)

Amandas - which part of this idea do you dislike? We should try and work out the kinks together!

I had another idea about this last night, each product you buy could give you Shockpoints in relation to how expensive it was! That way people that buy the products regularly will see the benefits more, and give people an incentive to buy it too :)

Ahh, similar to the Boots points + rewards scheme? That's smart and would make people stay loyal to the brand. Nice addition to the idea Becky!

Oh man, and I thought I was being original!! Haha well if it's worked for boots it would work for shockwaves ;)

Tinkadele, you're a genius! :) This idea is great. Like Katie said it's a brilliant, catchy name too. Instantly grabbed my attention. I like the idea of being rewarded for time and ideas too, it makes it so much more worthwhile. Thumbs up from me :)

Thank you! I'm going to be gutted if Shockwaves don't use it in any way now!! Haha, all of these confidence boosters from the community. :-)

They definitely should! And its good to see you've had a great response from the community, you're ideas are really unique and I've loved reading about them!

They will, or we'll storm the headquarters petitioning for Shockpoints ;)
