The Power of Play: Why Custom Games Are the Ultimate Brand Engagement Tool
By Dean Schwartz (SWAG Master): Engagement is the cornerstone of effective marketing, and nothing garners attention from all walks of life like a good game.
But engagement isn’t the only positive outcome from these fun favorites: unlike many other promotional products, games tend to have a longer lifespan; and when people enjoy your game they’re more likely to share it with their friends or family, extending your brand’s reach through effective word-of-mouth marketing. Even adding the potential to go viral!
And it doesn’t take a rocket surgeon to recognize that custom games will create a positive association between your brand and the recipient, increasing brand loyalty. Plus, unlike passive advertising methods, games offer interactivity, keeping users entertained while subtly exposing them to your brand (boosting loyalty and recognition).
As if that’s not enough, custom games can even be designed with specific messaging or themes, enabling you to express your brand’s unique “personality” to any demographic at any time of year.
If all of that sounds great but you don’t know where to start – don’t worry. Whether your brand is fun-loving, educational, or innovative, SOBO’s SWAG Experts will work to ensure the game’s design, storyline, and overall experience reflect that.
