Promotional Games as an Alternative to Corporate Business Gifts
Looking to Use a Digital Game as an Engaging Alternative to Traditional Business Gifts?
When most companies think about corporate business gifts, they think about the usual physical promotional items. But how much is giving out branded gifts such as printed clothing, mugs and pens really going to help you stand out from the competition?
Promotional interactive games are a great, forward thinking, cost effective, more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional, physical merchandise, corporate Christmas cards and more. They can be used for both internal (for staff within your own business) and external (client and customer) promotions.
We can also create local multi-player promotional games to allow play in groups, either at work or with friends and family at home.
If you’re looking for a UK based promotional game developer to create a promotional game for your business, we can help.
How You Can Use Promotional Games?
You don’t have to have a particular reason to develop a game as a great reward/incentive, but here are some ideas for how you might use a promotional game:
A Great Alternative to Traditional Business Gifts
When most businesses think about promotional items, they still think about the tired old promotional products and corporate gifts such as printed clothing, mugs, pens, personalised Christmas cards etc. There’s no doubt these things work in keeping your company top-of-mind with past and present customers, but why not do something new and unique.
A promotional game can provide many hours of enjoyment, as well as keeping your customers engaging with your brand for extended periods of time. They are also more environmentally friendly than producing physical items and save on postage costs, because you can just send the link out via email.
A Reward for Employees
Games can be a great way to reward employees and help boost morale and productivity among the workforce. They can be used internally on your company website or intranet to inject some fun into the workplace.
Games can be a great alternative to a business Christmas card and can be sent out as a web link to either employees, customers or both. What better way to thank customers for their past (and hopefully continued) business than a custom promotional game.
Please be aware though, we have very limited capacity to take on these sorts of time critical game projects so if you want to develop a promotional Christmas game (or indeed any seasonal game), then please start planning and get in touch well in advance.
If you have an upcoming sales promotion (Black Friday for instance) why not use a game to increase awareness around that period.
A Tool to Run Competitions
Games can be a great vehicle to run a free prize draw competition. Whether for business customers/clients or staff we can include data capture forms and functionality within your game to facilitate this.
Part of a Marketing Campaign
We create branded games for integration in more general marketing campaigns.
What Are the Delivery Options?
We always recommend making your game web based. This is the most cost effective way to produce and publish your promotional game.
All you need to do is post your promotional game on your website, then send out the link via email to your emailing list. This allows clients, customers or employees to play directly in the web browser by simply clicking the link.
Do You Offer Off-the-Shelf Customisable Games
Unlike many custom game development companies we don’t offer off-the-shelf customisable games, we develop each bespoke game for a specific client. This way we make sure every client gets a game that’s designed from the ground up.
This ensures you get the best fit for your requirements and target audience, rather than having to pick from a limited selection of pre-built games. We can also include specific products or services that you want to promote in the game itself.
