Sales Officer, Gard Edna of Geddit is just as enthusuastic about the prospect: “We are very excited to do our first event test in the UK with Barnsley FC. As we are moving towards the global launch of Geddit, it is of high importance to us to get the ball rolling with event tests such as this. Anyone can create a Geddit through our automated system both nationally or at fixed geo-points for minimal cost, and there is absolutely no cost involved for the end-users. For events and more advance set-ups, customers do need to get in touch with us in advance. End-users will enjoy unlimited fun and real prizes to boot. With Geddit, everyone can be a winner, through Challenges that are easy to understand yet highly entertaining.”
“We believe gamification marketing is here to stay,” says Ivar Frølich, Chief Creative Officer of Geddit.
“Though some see traditional digital gaming as a time-consuming, evil addictiveness from a realm below hell, we in Geddit strongly believe, and love, the core mechanisms of gaming. Our goal with Geddit is to supply a marketing entertainment platform that offers 60 second Challenges that befit a broad range of users, and we are easily and constantly available on any smartphone. Our Challenges are created so that every challenge we create is unique – when you play it, you are the first (and last) to get that exact experience.
"Your results are based on your choices there and then, and not so much luck or practicing a repeating pattern. We are not a product solely aimed at the hardcore gamers, but wish to offer a broad appeal through challenges within the categories of ’Reaction’ and ’Logic’. We are very excited to do our first public event test in the UK with Barnsley FC, and very much look forward to what we will do together in the future.” concluded Frølich.
