Are you planning to launch a Hidden Objects game but are unsure how to promote it in order to attract more participants? Take a look at these popular and effective techniques!

Digital marketers put endless hours into creating, developing, and executing campaigns that generate engagement and bring about results. There are different ways to boost brand engagement and completely distinct techniques to maximize lead generation or boost online visibility. Wouldn’t it be ideal to create just one single campaign that’d be capable of achieving all of these goals, and more, at the same time? Today, we’re coming to share a solution that can do just that. 

Gamification has become an inevitable part of digital marketing strategies and it’s here to stay, and all that thanks to its catchy gameplaying characteristics. Another reason for gamified promotions being so popular is the fact that they don’t come across as marketing techniques; they don’t come with the outdated hard-sell approach, instead, they offer a challenge that helps the user get their mind off important things for a moment. They also provide entertainment that we all need once in a while. The Hidden Objects game by Easypromos is a great marketing tool that allows you to generate brand awareness and visibility, maximize lead generation, and stay top of mind with customers. However, if you want your gamified promotion to reach as many people as possible, you will need to make sure that you share the game with as many people as possible

Use banners, popups, and widgets to attract website visitors 

Think of the number of visitors your website or e-commerce site gets on a daily basis. And now think of how many of those visitors are anonymous… Wouldn’t it be just great if you could obtain email addresses at least from some of them? There are three ways to do it!

  • Banners: attract the attention of your website visitors from the second they visit your site. The following example might not be of a Hidden Objects game but it shows how banners can help convert anonymous visitors into leads.

  • Popups: Similar to banners, popups are great conversion tools. Choose where you want to place them and promote your Hidden Objects game to all visitors. 
  • Widgets: Create a positive user experience by embedding your Hidden Objects game on your website or e-commerce site. It’s a great way to catch users’ attention there and then.
