5 Strategies for Leveling Up Your Video Game Marketing

Updated: Jan 31, 2023

The gaming industry is one of the most booming industries in the world and is only projected to get bigger. Social media is key in growing audiences for gaming companies, teams, and developers. Therefore, using the right social media strategies to grow your audience is necessary.


Here are five strategies that can help:


1. Live Events (Streams, Announcements, and Competitions)


There is always an audience for new live streams, making it a great way to build a following and potentially make money. Of course, this is easier said than done. Many gamers use social media to create a sense of hype for upcoming games. By doing this, they get people talking and excited for what is to come.


2. Partner with Streamers and Gamers


Essentially, brands use popular gamers for marketing their product to other gamers. This is effective because the people being marketed to are already interested in gaming and are more likely to pay attention to someone they already follow and enjoy watching. Additionally, because these streamers have such a large following, it provides brands with a lot of exposure that they might not otherwise be able to get.


Your marketing strategy for your video game should be creative and engaging to attract potential players. One way to do this is to focus on showing players enjoying your game. This will help potential players see that your game is enjoyable and worth their time.


3. Encourage Your Audience to Market on Your Behalf


Companies that make video games should try to make their games community-oriented. This way, gamers will be more likely to be passionate about the game and feel a sense of belonging to a community.


Don't be afraid to show off your most dedicated fans. With the recent popularity of fan art and virtual photography through games, there is bound to be a lot of interest in the content you post.


4. Lean into Humor and Memes


Social media platforms and gaming communities are often filled with humor. Whether it's memes, gifs, or just funny comments, humor is a big part of these online spaces. This is because humor is a great way to connect with others and build rapport. Additionally, humor can make complex topics more accessible and help people bond over shared interests.


Studios are using humor in their branding to appeal to a younger audience that is always online. The goal is to have a brand voice that is not too serious and is funny instead. Memes have the potential to be shared a lot, which is good for promoting your brand. Also, having fun with your audience and building a sense of community is important.


5. Maintain a Thick Skin When Dealing with Trolls


No matter how good your product is, people will always try to bring it down. That's just the nature of the internet. You can focus on the fans as much as possible and not let the haters get to you.


The good thing about gamers arguing is that it increases engagement. However, these arguments can quickly turn into flaming wars and spam. Therefore, it's important for companies to both moderate social comments and have a thick skin.


Conclusion


You can use many strategies to level up your video game marketing. Many will be effective, but you must find the right mix that works for you and your game. Experiment and see what works best; don't be afraid to try new things. You can take your video game marketing to the next level with a little effort.
