open questions • Games as a vehicle for expression – Relationship with joys of interaction, immersion and gameplay – BUT do we forget the product? Neopets? Guiness? • Gameplay – advertising (tradeoff? ) – Is it possible for the message to get through?
In Sum: to drive the brand… Ø…websites need to be more than a communication channel to customers. they must be a proposition in their own right. Ø…websites must be an extension of the products and services that a brand provides to its customers. Ø…marketers must understand that as soon as content becomes digital, customers expect more from it. Ø…you have to allow for co-creation and create “Prosumers”. ØThe edge boundaries between content, product, service, advertising, and application have gone.
