Trying something new for the first time can be a bit daunting, so to remove some of the unknowns and give you a clear idea about what to expect from working with us, we've put together this walk-through guide.
1. Choose your game
If you haven't already, the first step is as simple as that. Have a browse and play each of our games, then pick your favourite or the one you feel works for your brand and audience.
We have a wide range of themes to choose from, with handy categories to help you narrow things down. If you want some help choosing the game that's right for you, feel free to get in touch and we'll be happy to advise!
2. Choose your package
We've aimed to make our pricing structure as simple as possible, with four ready-to-go options to choose from.
The Budget package (from £695) includes everything you need to quickly set up a branded game campaign for your audience. You can add your brand logo, change the in-game copy, and use your game for a 30-day campaign.
The Essential package (from £995) gives you everything in the Budget package, but we'll remove "Game by Peek & Poke" from all menu screens. You'll also need this package if your game is for a trade show or event.
The Standard package (from £1,495) comes with a social sharing screen, additional friends leaderboard, and free advent calendar for Christmas games. You also have the option to add your own game logo and custom domain, with the license period spanning 90 days.
The Premium package (from £2,295) is our 'white glove' option, where we'll set everything up for you and design custom game logos and prize images for your campaign. You'll have an initial briefing call and dedicated account manager to guide you through the entire process.
You can find more information on our packages and what they include on the pricing page.
3. Complete your order
Once you’ve chosen your game and package, you can check out and place your order. Our store front is powered by Shopify, so you can use any major credit card or PayPal to pay for the order. Alternatively, you can select the "send me an invoice" option, but please keep in mind you won't be able to launch your game until the invoice has been paid.
Remember our money-back guarantee: if for whatever reason you’re not happy with the finished game (before launch), we'll happily refund you.
4. Make it your own
Once your order has been processed, we'll send you a password-protected admin link to your online game editor.
You’ll be able to add your campaign copy, upload your company logos and prize images and view your game with the click of a button.
Sizes for logos and images, plus character limits, are all included in the editor. If you get stuck or have any questions at all, send us a message and we'll be happy to help.
If you're curious about how to do this, we've recorded a video tutorial on how to setup a game for you to watch.
5. Launch your game
You can amend and tweak the copy as much as you like. Once you're happy with it, you'll just need to click the 'Launch' button to enable public access to the game.
Once launched, your 30-day or 90-day license period will begin.
Your game is now ready to share with your audience.
6. Play, share, and engage
Link to the game from your website, share it on your social media channels and shout about it in your newsletter! To help with this, we've put together a few handy pointers on making the most of your game campaign.
7. Track and report
Our games come with a handy campaign dashboard that lets you view your real-time game stats. Simply log into the admin page and you'll be able to instantly view and report on the game’s progress throughout your campaign.
At the end of the campaign, you'll also want to log into the admin system to export the list of players for inclusion in your marketing. Remember that only players that have opted into your marketing should be added to your mailing list.
8. Play again?
Why not try running another campaign later in the year or for an upcoming season or event? We're constantly working on new games and have plenty of ideas in the pipeline.
