Episode 33
Virtual Reality & Cloud Gaming 🚀

Hi friend!


It has been talked about for some time, but these projects are just starting to enter the implementation phase. What will come of this? Hard to say. Some problems with the implementation make us wonder if the timing is good. Of course, this is all about Cloud Gaming and VR. Both discussed and expected, but still there are some doubts about this. It is definitely an attempt to expand gaming in terms of both users and technology. A very interesting experience that can tell us a lot about the place where the industry is now.

Grab your coffee and enjoy!

📱 Why The Gaming Industry Could Be The New Social Media

As the world starts to notice just how influential gaming is, it is just as critical to let go of those outdated beliefs that gamers are a forgotten group of people. They are the people who are bringing together gaming and social connectedness in a way that we’ve never seen before.


Types of gamers – understand casual and hardcore gamers as marketing target groups

If you plan to run adverts within the gaming community, you shouldn’t play it by ear. There are different types of gamers out there. You have to play by the rules. Their rules, to be specific. It’s nothing new in marketing – brands always should adjust their communication to the desired target group. There’s one basic rule and you probably know it. First and foremost, as video game advertisers or non-endemic brands advertising in gaming and esports, you have to deeply understand your target audience when it comes to playing games. Let’s take a closer look at this topic.
