Brands use creativity-based contests to enhance consumer interaction
Implications - Interaction on a game-based level often skims the surface of customer engagement, while interaction on a creativity-based level can go much deeper. Thus, more brands are grabbing consumer attention by creating contests and challenges that ask consumers to be inventive and artistic. By allowing them to exercise their creativity, brands can engage customers in such a way so as to build positive brand awareness, association and even loyalty. Further, the proliferation of social media makes such campaigns even more effective, as they encourage contest participants to share their creations, further spreading the word and campaign message.
