Learn How Gaming and Mobile Promotions encourage Brand Engagement
Today a full third of the world population (close to 2.6 billion people) is considered gamers, connecting into massive networks of interactions and communities of mind-liked individuals. This represents huge opportunities that go beyond mere entertainment. With such massive reach, gamification can be easily labeled as a medium or channel, that any brand should be taking advantage of.
The traditional mindset will depict a typical gamer, as a teen locked up in his bedroom swearing to other players online while trying to get that precious care package in Call of Duty. But surprisingly, the average age of gamers today in America is 34 years. Taking into account reach and age demographics, gaming to engage customers will allow you to tap into the demographic group with the highest average annual income, promising a higher return on investment (ROI).
Encourage Participation. Marketing communications have evolved from a monolog to an invitation to participate and get involved with brands in ways we wouldn’t even imagine 15 years ago. There are four ways you can get your brand to encourage participation:
Games like trivia or scavenger hunts are excellent to involve users in a quest to encouraging them to discover content and win prizes.
Competition motivates people to satisfy the need to win, it provides the opportunity or reason for improving their performance and motivates them to put forth a greater effort that can result in high levels of performance. Game predictors whether on Football or Basketball is a good way to spark competition. Your brand can be front and center providing content for customers to compete for prizes.
Everyone likes to be challenged. A great way to engage customers is challenging their luck with instant win, sweepstakes and text to win features sponsored or offered by your brand.
