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 ENGINE
If you haven't already, the first step is as simple as that. Have a browse and play each of our games. Pick your favourite or the one you feel works for your brand and audience. Feel free to give us a call - we can offer advice on which games might work best for your campaign.
2. CHOOSE YOUR PACKAGE
We've aimed to make our pricing structure as simple as possible, with three main options to choose from.
The Essential package will give you everything you need to run a successful games-based campaign, including high-score leaderboard and the ability to run a competition for your audience.
Or go for the Standard package, giving you an extra engagement boost with built-in social sharing, friends leaderboard and email re-engagement.
Finally, for those who want to align the game a little more closely to a campaign or company name, choose the Premium package. You can choose your own game name and we'll create a personalised game logo just for you. You'll also have the option to choose your own subdomain.
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 payment has been processed, one of our team will send you a password-protected admin link for your online game editor.
You’ll be able to add your copy, upload your logos and 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.
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 hosting period will begin.
Your game is now ready to roll out to your audience.
6. PLAY, SHARE, ENGAGE
Link to it 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 from your game campaign.
7. EXPORT & REPORT
At the end of the campaign, we'll send you a one-page stat report. You'll also probably want to log into your game's admin system to export the list of players for inclusion in your marketing systems. 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? We're aiming to release further seasonal themed versions of our games along with some new ones too.
Sign up to our newsletter (in the footer of this page) for future updates on these.
