In this session attendees will be introduced to the concept of integrated marketing, with the goal of helping them design a successful game launch. The session will cover the superposition of multiple marketing channels and roots in examples drawn from campaigns the speaker has worked on, like Baldur's Gate 3, one of the tentpole launches of 2023, Tunic or Big Ambitions.
After covering an informative introduction to integrated marketing the session will move to its relation to guerrilla and viral approaches, and how it can be applied to titles of all sizes. Real world examples and statistics will help contextualise these explanations and anchor them in real case studies.
The session will then explore key channels such as PR, influencer, creative, branding, and performance marketing in depth. Practical guidance on constructing integrated campaigns and averting common pitfalls will be a big focus, ultimately equipping attendees with actionable insights for decision-making on their own campaigns.
By the end of the session attendees will have a greater understanding of what integrated marketing is, the different layers, and how to combine them. They will also take away a great deal of real case studies from successful campaigns like Baldur's Gate 3, Tunic or Big Ambitions to empower their own marketing decision-making.
Marketeers, publishers and developers keen to learn how a fully integrated marketing campaign can be run to maximise resources and deliver great results, both for AAA, indies and everything in between.
