This playful approach can bring brands and consumers closer together marketing? but it has to fit the brand’s identity. There are three different ways for a brand to join in the game. - Ad Game: An “Ad” game is one that’s been created by the brand. e.g. BMW’s “In” Games In-Car Escape IV. It helps brands to “play” directly with their consumers. - In Game: “In” game, as it sounds, is about in-game advertising, e.g. Clarins set Game “Ad” Games a series of traditional looking ads within the social game ‘SPA LIFE’. It helps to Products enhance overall brand awareness amongst a target audience. - Game Products: A “Game Product” is a real-life product “virtualized” for inclusion in a social game, like brand engagement with Second Life, for example. “Gamification” In addition to the obvious opportunity presented to brands by gamifying their marketing, there are also a couple of potential pitfalls: 1st.

Aside from picking a fundamentally “fun” game, there is then a difficult process of artistically and effectively incorporating the brand within the game. Brands should carefully consider gamification marketing according to overall culture and product features, integrating these factors with the right style of game. 4
