If your goal is to position your brand and message towards consumers, there are countless eyeballs around the world playing computer games.

In Game Advertising Companies – Gamer Demographic/Profile:

Due to the amount and type of games available, the demographic is very subjective, and thus it’s very important to understand what audience is playing what games. The Entertainment Software Association report that 48 percent of gamers are female and the average player age is 31 and has been gaming for 14 years. Companies and marketers’ must discover who is playing what games and must remember that it is very easy to turn a consumer off their brand with poor profiling and targeting the wrong audience.

In Game Advertising Companies – Why Gaming Advertising:

  • The CPM rates are relatively high in comparison to traditional CPM rates and are more affordable
  • Advertisers can target the very desirable 13 to 35 year demographic

  • The audience is young and affluent

In Game Advertising Companies – Be careful…

  • Just like attaching your brand to a film, the association must fit the brand.  The same applies to gaming, some games are rated parental guidance for a reason.
  • Try to engage and connect with gamers, include the message within the entertainment experience which dilutes the intrusive element of advertisements
  • Logos and banners don’t cut it for this type of audience
  • Monitor online chat and gaming boards for input from gamers, they can be great brainstorming platforms!
