In-Game Advertising Grows Up
Trying to reach gamers has been on the radar of advertisers for many years, but it’s only been in recent times that their mindset about in-game advertising changed — from seeing it as an opportunity to put up a virtual billboard to an extension of their social media strategy. That shift in thinking, according to a story in Digiday, is helping in-game advertising grow into a serious channel for marketers.
Furthering that growth has been massive growth in audience due to COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders. “All the consumption of gaming during the lockdown has further legitimized it as a proper entertainment marketing vehicle,” said Misha Sher, Mediacom’s worldwide VP of sport and entertainment.
