OBJE to Add New Revenue Streams With In-App Rewards
SARASOTA, Fla. --(Business Wire)--
Obscene Interactive, the gaming division of OBJ Enterprises (OTCBB:
OBJE), announced plans today to follow the lead of market leaders by
generating new revenue streams with redeemable in-app rewards.
While many successful brands are finding new ways to use downloadable
apps to increase revenues and new customers, Pizza Hut has emerged as a
leader in the field. The chain announced this week that it sold $1
million worth of pizza through its Xbox 360 app in less than four months
after it was first launched in April 2013. Eleven percent of those who
used the app had never ordered from Pizza Hut before.
To encourage in-app sales, Xbox 360 users can earn up to 1,000
redeemable Gamerscore points through achievements unlocked in the Pizza
Hut app by ordering using the takeout option, requesting extra dipping
sauces and many more actions-effectively gamifying the pizza-ordering
OBJE is working on a similar model for upcoming gaming app releases,
making points and achievements unlocked in games redeemable for
real-world coupons, products, special offers and more that are supplied
by corporate partners ready to purchase the leads.
"By partnering with businesses that want to market their offerings to
the rapidly gowing number of mobile gamers, we can help connect gamers
with hot deals on the products they use anyway and drive new customers
to worthy providers," said OBJE CEO Paul Watson.
OBJE is constantly developing new products and partnerships with
up-and-coming, independent game developers in order to compete with more
established names including companies such as Glu Mobile (News - Alert) Inc. (NASDAQ:
GLUU), DeNA Co., Ltd. (OTCBB: DNACF) and The9 Limited (NASDAQ: NCTY).
