Data-driven G2M Strategy

We develop customized go-to-market (G2M) strategies by combining deep knowledge of gaming brands with marketing intelligence. Using data-driven insights, we identify micro-targeted audiences, top-performing markets and the most effective strategies for our clients.

A data-driven approach

We analyze owned and sourced data on audiences, market trends, competition, brand health, and other relevant factors. By processing and modeling this data, we create custom audiences, identify key markets, and gain competitive insights grounded in real-world information.

Our comprehensive research and findings lead to actionable takeaways, including strategic direction, media mix modeling, and marketing timelines.

Micro-Targeting & Affinity

We use a data-driven approach to target audiences based on behavior and gaming affinity. We are then able to segment these audiences into micro-targetable (MTA) segments with a higher likelihood of conversion. In addition, we leverage different data points to provide a detailed competitive insight matrix and recommended market matrix.

This way we can create relevance scores that identify the highest potential markets and audiences, combined with the best business opportunities based on market economics and media costs.

Strategic Direction

Leveraging our extensive gaming brand expertise, we adopt a holistic approach, always considering a 360° view of the full marketing mix. We provide valuable input based on the PESO model and design performance-driven campaigns that cover all phases of the marketing funnel - from awareness and consideration to conversion and brand loyalty.

This integration with other marketing activities across all functions and partners enables us to present our clients with actionable insights for comprehensive and effective campaigns across all their internal and external teams.
