What could Gamification do for your business?
There are many goals that can be achieved through gamification, ranging from increasing brand awareness, data collection, PR, social activity, sales and visits be those online or to drive individuals in store. Games can be tailored to your specific requirements, our game makers are specialist at understanding what you are looking to achieve and working that back into a game.
Depending on strategy the game may be more focused on a wider reach and less qualified (to your business needs) game players being involved or you may choose to have the game topic hyper relevant to your niche and therefore this may reach a smaller, but more relevant, catchment of users.
Social and website engagement
By hosting a game as part of your website you are driving traffic to engage with your site, depending on how relevant you deem the game related traffic to be you can use remarketing tags as part of the campaign to drive the user to your next intended action. By having a well thought out social strategy to accompany the game, be that driving users to ask for assistance where required or giving game points for social sharing etc. it can be a great benefit to your social following and engagement.

With GDPR coming into force in May 2018, ensuring your data is GDPR compliant is absolutely key. Depending on the style of game and relevance of the likely game players, data capture could be one of the main focuses for your game.
