What are Pre-Actions?

Pre-actions are small & quick "setup" tasks you can assign points to that get students into action, FAST!

For example, we always include things like:

  • Whitelist our sending email address (so emails never go to spam)
  • Join the Facebook group
  • Sign the agreement
  • Claim the bonus ticket to our event
  • Book your travel
  • and more...

Traditionally, these kind of things can be challenging to get students to do. That's where Xperiencify can help.

When you assign points to the completion of any Pre-Action, you allow your student to start earning points immediately, get validated, and feel like they're already making progress with simple things.

That's what we call a win!
