BEFORE

Adopting Digital Marketing

The introduction of the internet brought with it a great wave of digitisation. First to migrate were print media. As more consumers moved to the internet, businesses understood news & banners on websites were similar to magazine ad pages & billboards but in digital form. Social media, still new, was ignored.

background

AFTER

Social Media Departments

Soon after came user generated content, the age of social media platforms. An age we now call, WEB2. Customer attention on these platforms were so large, it forced businesses to rethink their strategies. They had to catch up to competitors who had the foresight to carve their spot. Now, every business has had to adopt social media marketing, and invest in dedicated departments to connect with younger audiences. An ironic conclusion considering social media was largely scoffed at before mass adoption.

NOW

Passive Digital Entertainment (PDE)

The most common form of entertainment to have gone digital, has been to consume content as a viewer or reader. Having little to no active participation in the content once it is created.

background

Read Media Platforms

Amongst the first forms of content consumed on the internet, read-only media platforms have evolved to rely on user publications such as Medium. As read-only suggests, participation is only one-way, author to reader.

background

Video Content Platforms

Content platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, TikTok, Instagram and others started a revolution in content created by its users. But once published, it is consumed.

background

Subscription Streaming (OTT)

Popular OTT platforms such as Netflix, Disney+, Hulu and others, have shifted consumption behaviour from cable TV to online. Using algorithms to suggest & influence content produced or published.

background

FUTURE

Active Digital Entertainment (ADE)

Making real connections in the digital age of tomorrow will be through giving audiences opportunities to actively participate. Consumers thirst for unique experiences they can share with their friends, loved ones and tribe, across the world.

background

User Generated Content

With more creative tools available and access to the internet, it’s become easier and cheaper for anyone to not only consume, but cooperatively create.

background

Gamification

Now added into every app, platform, and even workplace. We have gamified life by making otherwise mundane tasks fun.

background

Livestreams

We not only watch, but actively participate in the content by interacting with the streamer and other audiences. Collectively experiencing entertainment together with chat.

background

Metaverse

The way we interact with the digital world will change forever. From 2D flat interfaces to dynamic virtual environments.

We create the tools for Active Digital Entertainment

As consumers begin to shift their attention to new digital forms of entertainment, our solutions will help you engage and connect with them in ways that are meaningful and personalised. Be future ready, with EIG.

The Problem

As described above, consumer behaviour has evolved. Attention is being grabbed by Games & Esports. 

Classic brands will find difficulty reaching younger consumers if brands are not present where they choose to consume and engage with content. Businesses are looking to invest in the industry but don’t know how.

The Opportunity

Why brands must get into Esports

High engagements & lifetime value

Esports serves a mass market of digital natives that increasingly choose games as their main form of entertainment. The accessibility of mobile and the effects of the pandemic have acted as catalysts to its growth.

The esports community is tightly connected, vocal and loyal to brands who are able to ’speak their language’

Huge Growth Potential

$11.75USD

Traditional sports ad spent per viewer

Sports fans spend an average of $50 USD

$1.67USD

Esports ad spent per viewer

Esports fans currently spend an average of %5 USD

A US study found that 37% of media consumption took place in gaming, but only 2% of media spending went to this category that has 8.7% YOY audience growth. This discrepancy will soon change significantly in the next few years.

We expect esports fan average spend

GROWING 3X to $15 USD

Brands that seize this unique opportunity will lead in the race of capturing the attention of young audiences.
