Player Journey

The winter holiday HTML5 game was promoted on Facebook to target a wide range of wholesalers and vendors. We followed these steps to engage the target audience.

  1. The viewer sees the game’s promotional banner on Facebook
  2. The viewer clicks the link and plays the game.
  3. After the game, the player registers their name and email to join the raffle
  4. The player waits for the winner’s announcement (weekly and grand draw)

All players were allowed to play the game several times to achieve their best score, as well as join all the weekly leaderboards.
