How gamification is used as a content marketing strategy
Together with a trusted Digital Agency in Singapore, Singapore Red Cross, or SRC gauged their target market and their behavior to help understand how to educate them better about blood donation, all the while sparing them of the technical information in the process. As a result, SRC launched “Donor Dash: A Run to Save Lives,” a mobile gaming application which aims to create awareness and share basic information about blood donation.
In Donor Dash, the player aims to complete each blood drive mission in order to “save lives” by swiping left or right to collect the required blood components and swiping up to jump and avoid the obstacles. Blood donation trivias, donor requirements and nearby donation centers in Singapore are readily available inside the app, as part of SRC’s goal to spread information and educate the players about blood donation.
