Posted in: Applications,Digital marketing,Ideas for your websiteLast update: 16/03/21

If you want to challenge and entertain your online community with a traditional game known by everyone, then it is now possible…. With our branded Word Search app! You get to boost your brand’s online presence, create engagement and if you do it well, you will also generate new leads!

How to create a branded Word Search

The application by Easypromos allows you to create your own branded Word Search game just in a few moments. And most importantly, you don’t need any programming skills! All we ask from you is to come up with the words that will be hidden in between all the letters. If you create a Word Search promotion as part of your marketing campaign, remember that the game should help you accomplish your marketing objectives, for example:

  • Promote your products and brand
  • Introduce new products
  • Be related to your brand or industry
  • Bring traffic to your website

Once you know what your main objectives are, decide on the words you wish to use in your Word Search. Then add the terms into the application so that it generates the game and fills in the gaps with random letters. 

As already mentioned, the main goal of this game is to expose the audience to your brand. Therefore, adding your logo is a must! You can also edit the colors to match your branding.

As the organizer of the game you will be able to edit a variety of different settings:

  • Personalize the game with your logo, and branding colors. 
  • Choose the overall difficulty level (easy, medium, hard). Decide whether you want to show the words hidden in the game, limit the maximum number of moves or let the player start over.
  • Add up to 15 words.
  • Enable the entry form to collect leads and choose what details you want the users to leave.
  • Set a maximum time to complete the challenge, with or without the option to try again.
  • The game has visual and audio effects; a sound goes off whenever a new word is found or if the player runs out of time. There is also a round of applause upon completing the game.

Every successful participant of the branded Word Search gets points for completing the game. The application assigns a fixed 100 points for solving the challenge, and there are also extra bonus points for the remaining seconds (10 points per second). Once the game is completed, the user will see the following screen with their final score:

The final score will be then displayed on the ranking page that you can enable in the Word Search platform. This will create even more competition between the participants! 

The ranking page can be used as a tool to choose the winners of your giveaway (for example top 10 players), to send discount codes to the users that got the minimum number of points or to organize a giveaway between all the people that took part in your game.
