Gamification is the new digital marketing trend. And it’s probably our favorite way to celebrate Valentine’s Day with online communities!

Branded mini-games are great to entertain and engage your audience and to accomplish your marketing objectives like lead generation and product promotion. Therefore, gamification allows you to provide high-quality content that positions your brand in the market.

Moreover, you can personalize mini-games with your logo and branding colors to further expose the user to your brand. Take a look at the above Valentine’s Memory game. Users look for matching pairs that can be pictures of your products, your logo, or even Valentine’s symbols like love hearts and cupids.

Beyond Valentine’s Day games: social media giveaways to grow your online community

Valentine’s Day is the ideal moment to generate engagement and visibility on social networks because users are very active and everything associated with love is well-received. Social media giveaways are a great tool to energize and build online communities.

That’s why we recommend a comments-based giveaway, on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, to start off your Valentine’s Day campaign.

The dynamic is simple. Just publish a post, and give away a product or prize at random to someone who comments on your promotional post. Get the conversation started with an engaging, open question. If you choose your questions carefully, you can also use this opportunity to learn more about your target audience!


Social media Valentine’s Day giveaways are a fantastic way to grow your online community and online presence. Well-organized sweepstakes will also help you grow brand loyalty and gain new followers, as comment-based giveaways tend to go viral!
