Society is saturated with so much information, and users need an incentive that, among all this vortex, will help to awaken their interest and their desire to read more information about a topic beyond the title of a post or email.

Play5 is tailormade to address these issues and engage with the target consumer in a hyper-personalised way.
The overall strategy rests on four key pillars that include customised gamification for the brands, branded polls, quizzes and tailored segment within ongoing reality show gamification. This integrated approach results in driving effective engagement and enhance consumer experience, seamless brand integration and visibility, segmentation capabilities to drive further engagement, leveraging brand legacy and advanced user profiling with insightful reports.
