What is Pluck?

The best communities offer a rich variety of social experiences, each of which is tuned for the audience and appropriate for the context.

Pluck includes a broad collection of community applications that can be used in any combination, anywhere on your site, to create the precise experience you need.

Each Pluck application has a default, out-of-the-box form and function, but you can easily customize both their appearance and behavior.

And Pluck applications are designed to work equally well in your web and mobile destinations.

These capabilities are paired with world-class management tools, several validated integrations into leading e-commerce platforms, and a full complement of services to guide your path to social commerce ROI.

  • Ratings & Reviews

    Inject trust and confidence into the purchase decisions consumers make on your site

    Shoppers today rely on product reviews to help with purchase decisions, and shoppers expect to cut through the clutter to see reviews from sources they trust. Whether you need a simple star-rating or a rich, comment and photo driven experience, Pluck Ratings & Reviews meet these needs with all of the standard features shoppers expect, adding an element of familiarity with out-of-the-box support for trust filters, product attribute ratings and filtering reviews by reviewer attributes. And, with sharing to Facebook and other social networks, your reviews can find coverage and readers far beyond the walls of your website.

  • Forums

    Inspire conversation and interaction

    Pluck Forums is a full-featured discussion application that can make conversation happen anywhere on your site. With capabilities including Q&A configuration, unread post tracking, managed subscription notifications, integrated polls, and more, Pluck Forums is the platform for open-ended conversation and interaction.

  • Personas

    Profile, activity center, self-expression and so much more

    Pluck Personas goes beyond simple profiles to show how members are involved in the community, to give members their own voice in the form of blogs and galleries, and to support member friending and following. All of a member’s activity in the community feeds into this centralized user profile, and a consumer’s Persona automatically reflects their community contributions. The Persona can be discovered by other community participants through friendships, username, and avatar attribution throughout the site, which drives engagement and encourages connections.

  • Groups

    Make all of your audiences feel at home

    Pluck Groups lets you – and at your discretion, your community members – create custom experiences in public or private sub-community settings. It provides private reserves for confidential collaboration and sharing, creates public retreats dedicated to particular interests, locations and collections, and it can offer community members the opportunity to create their own private sub-communities. Sub-communities built with Pluck Groups can include their own Blogs, Forums, Galleries, Polls, Events, Group Walls, Discovery and membership control.

  • Gamification

    Create powerful incentives and rewards with points, badges and leader boards

    With access to every community event down to the atomic level, Pluck Rewards can be tuned to acknowledge and reward virtually anything that helps you deliver on your business objectives. And unlike most gamification point solutions, Pluck Rewards makes it easy to reward the perceived quality of community members’ actions, not just the quantity. With the flexibility of the Pluck Rewards Engine, you control what actions within the Pluck community are tied to points and badging, and where those badges and leaderboards are displayed and how they are displayed in your community. Pluck Rewards also has the flexibility to incorporate events outside of the Pluck platform, enabling you to centralize your gamification strategy with loyalty and rewards programs both on- and offline.

  • Reactions

    Quick customizable feedback

    Pluck Reactions is a customizable, one-click voting application (e.g., Want it! / Own it! / Not for me…) that gives consumers a voice, and gives brands a valuable source of market information. Whether a poll, a like, or a wish list, this low barrier to community participation is a great way to engage your consumers and involve them on your site while gaining insights into products, customers, and markets.

  • Narratives

    The classic engine of engaging long-form content, updated

    Pluck Narratives are ideal for delivering long-form, media-rich article content while also providing a door to new traffic for your community. Pluck Narratives go beyond blogs, with configuration to support a variety of article types, from expert columns to consumer journals, how-to’s, buying guides and slide shows. And, you can create and manage consumer- or staff-generated content within the themes, structure, and control of your editorial and brand standards.

  • Galleries

    Enliven your experience with photos and videos

    Photos and videos bring passion to your digital customer experience. Pluck Galleries is a versatile tool that makes it easy for consumers to share their media with the entire community. But, Pluck Galleries are not just one-way projectors for media content; Pluck Galleries can also accommodate comments, and can be configured for contests.

  • Comments

    Drive conversation around content

    Like Forums, Comments are a well-established form of online interaction. Comments drive conversation around articles and other core site content, and have a demonstrated ability to stimulate consumer engagement, time on site and page views. Pluck Comments are also integrated into other Pluck Applications, including Galleries, Reviews, and Narratives, to provide a seamless interaction experience across an entire community.

  • Discovery

    Drive interaction by featuring your most compelling contributions

    Pluck Discovery enables your visitors to find content of interest from across your community through featured links, powerful search tools, outreach and email notifications and aggregate summaries based on characteristics like recentness, highest rated, most popular, most active and more. By featuring interesting and current content, Pluck Discovery drives more engagement by exposing the most casual of visitors to key happenings from your audience and drawing them deeper into your digital experience.
