The Virgin Games way of doing social mediaWednesday, Sep 6, 2017 15:46
One of the major secrets to success for a company in this modern age is an accessible and well managed social media presence where they can get in contact with customers and promote their site through the use of spreading information and snappy public relations.
Virgin Games succeed in doing this in a major way, they have accounts on all of the major social media platforms which are important for any sort of business who wants an online presence as these sites are where the majority of the customers and potential customers will be and they are the ones with which users are most comfortable and familiar with. This familiarity is also helpful on the business’ side as it helps them if the people working for them are able to use these sites in a way that really gets the best out of each post, for example, brevity is important on twitter but you can be a little more long-winded on Facebook because the platforms have different strategies that work for each.
Here is a quick look at the different accounts that Virgin Games has on all your favourite social media websites, what they do on them and how you can find them.
The 140-character microblogging site is a veritable hub for online business, with a massive userbase and an emphasis on news and advertisement it is the perfect platform for engaging with customers and fans.
The fact that Twitter allows the uploading and sharing of pictures and photographs which is something that Virgin Games utilises very well. Nearly every single tweet from their account contains a picture of some sort. This is a very deliberate and effective ploy that helps significantly to grab the attention someone who is scrolling through their twitter feed. You can also find them posting puzzles, games and trivia which you can do to win V* Points!
You can find Virgin Games on twitter by searching @virgingames and feel free to become one of their 48.9k followers.
Very much the older brother of Twitter, here Virgin Games are more likely to post longer form content and videos. This sort of content is usually designed to stay relevant for longer, unlike a tweet which is very of the moment and time sensitive. The same competitions and puzzles are posted here as on twitter so you can win V* Points through this too.
Search for @virgingames to quickly find their page on Facebook and give it a like while you’re there.
Since the userbase for and Google+ is not quite what they are on the other platforms Virgin Games don’t put that much emphasis on this site. This frees them up to work on the more popular platforms and make them better. But that shouldn’t stop you from checking in on them every so often just to see if they’ve made a post in a while because you wouldn’t want to miss out now would you?
Picture sharing is the name of the game over at Instagram and Virgin Games loves a bit of that. Here they will post up pictures of new games that have just hit their site to entice you over to them. They will also post up the odd bonus code on there so it is very valuable indeed to give them a follow and check for their posts in your feed.
