We are actively engaged when our actions result in direct feedback from the system.

Application:

Can you provide a environment that responds to the visitor? Can you change the content of your webshop to the specific needs of the client?

Or you could allow customers to add content to your website through (for example) reviews or ratings and showing immediate changes.
