Podcast: Social Gaming Gives Publicists Another Outreach Option

This morning we spoke with Nathon Gunn, CEO of Social Game Universe and IGAPI, about the social aspects of social gaming, why people love it, and how publicists can use it to promote their clients. Social Game Universe, the parent company for IGAPI, has created games that can be connected among users. With IGAPI, users can learn about products through gaming and interaction.

Gunn will also be one of the speakers at mediabistro’s Socialize conference, taking place next Thursday and Friday, March 31 and April 1. Click here for information and to register.

“Make product discovery something that’s engaging and fun,” is one piece of advice from Gunn.

Because games are easy to access and available on the mobile devices that we never leave home without, they have become part of promotional efforts for a variety of brands, such as the TV program Top Chef. In the podcast below, Gunn talks about social gaming in more detail and gives us a sneak  peek at what he’ll be discussing during Socialize.
