Marketing in Gaming

As I was playing an amazingly detailed online video game called Grand Theft Auto, I started to notice something odd.  The game is an open world game as many people already know, and it is based in a modern-day setting.

Something that made me think about advertising of all things, when playing the vehicles and signs on the road are meant to mimic ads we would see driving or walking around.  The crazy part is that the company who produces the game “Rock Star Games”  make in-game advertisement look so real, I feel like it will subconsciously make a player want to get something being advertised.

Now you must understand that not all of the Ads are appropriate for it is a satirical humor game, but the ones that look like products in actual reality.

Crowd-Funding

The world of funding is changing!!

Looking into “Crowd-funding” which would be your commonly used Kickstarter.com, or gofundme.com, has become a big deal in the new world of online media.

The social networking world as we know it has become a melting pot for ideas, but as many of us understand we rarely have the funds to forward the idea at hand.

In comes the creation of “crowd-funding”, which makes it important that a person with an idea can work on the creation while someone or a group of someone’s will fund it if they think it could be lucrative.

This is now becoming more and more of a thing in today’s modern world of connection, Firstround.com has written some great stuff on the importance of having an idea and how to get people to invest.how to get people to invest.  GOFUNDME.png
