- Why should you consider it?
Nowadays, marketing is focusing on offering experiences to their audience. Experiences that stick into the visitor's minds. They're less likely to forget about the wonderful experiences they witnessed. Especially when it's a game, and there's something to win with it. A favorable position in the minds of your audience it's what's all about nowadays.
- Easier to approach gen Z
Digital gamified coupons address another audience than regular (digital) coupons. In particular, the younger generation Y and Z. It's a generation that has grown up with games. It's an audience that's hard to reach using the traditional communication methods but easy to interact with if you offer them experiences based on their interests. Games.
- Conversion trigger
Gamified Coupons are one of the best conversion stimulators. If you provide your audience with gamified coupons and win something with them, they're more likely to redeem a discount than whether you'd give it to them. If the player wins a prize through a gamified coupon, he's pumped up with the winner's feeling. If you make sure the discount is time-limited, the winner is 4 times more likely to redeem the discount coupon because he doesn't want to miss out on it. Yes, guys, FOMO (fear of missing out) is a real thing.
