It’s a pleasure for the organisers of the Nordic Game Discovery Contest to announce a partnership with Helsinki- and Berlin-based influencer marketing platform Matchmade. The team at Matchmade will give NGDC finalists free access to their platforms, as well as services to help the finalists run influencer campaigns.
“We’re very happy to have Matchmade onboard as a partner for the Nordic Game Discovery Contest,” says NGDC organiser and host Jacob Riis. “The contest is all about creating awareness for the participating game studios, and the folks at Matchmade are specialists when it comes to exactly that.”
“Influencer marketing is still relatively new, and many game studios are discovering best practices for successful campaigns,” says Matchmade CMO Heini Vesander. “It’s an honor for us to be part of the NGDC and help finalists get influencer marketing right from the get-go.”
Matchmade now joins the NGDC caravan for the remaining Season III qualifiers as well as the NGDC Grand Finals at Nordic Game 2019 in Malmö, Sweden on 22-24 May.
Matchmade is the leading influencer marketing platform for games. Founded in Helsinki by games industry veterans Jiri Kupiainen and Leo Lännenmäki in 2014, the company also has offices in Berlin, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
