Last year we wrote a review about gamesGRABR – since then they have exploded onto the gaming scene and are fast becoming the biggest social network for gamers on the planet! Described by BBC Click as “like Pinterest for gamers”, gameGRABR is seeking to further accelerate its growth by bringing gamers and the gaming industry, which will be worth $111 billion by 2015 according to Gartner, closer together .
How are they going to achieve this growth?
Well, last year they successfully surpassed their investment target by 20% using crowdfunding. As it proved so successful they have chosen to go down the crowdfunding route again in order to fund their next critical phase of growth. This will help expand its global marketing efforts as well as develop their technology.
Their aim for next year is to reach one million unique users. Already, after just one year, they now have more than 70,000 unique users per month with a remarkable 49% returning month on month – these stats alone highlight how engaged gamesGRABR is becoming in such a short space of time. Their accolades are impressive with Mashable naming them one of the top 25 UK Start Up’s and nominated as the Best Retailer Concept at MCV Awards earlier this year.
If you want to be a part of this big-money industry and capitalise on the explosive games market then invest in the fastest growing social gaming company from as little as £10. Imagine if you had done the same with Minecraft (which was sold to Microsoft for a whopping $2.5bn) or Oculus Rift (which Facebook bought for $2bn)? The most exciting for us was the sale of Twitch to Amazon for $970m in August 2014. Twitch is a games video streaming platform – gamesGRABR does this with bells on! Not only can you stream your videos into your collection they also recommend games to buy and other users to follow based on key words in your video description – brilliant!
Invest now …don’t miss out again!
So what is this social gaming network?
gamesGRABR allows you to discover, collect and buy the games you loveand is available on mobile, tablet and PC. Developed in a contemporary ‘pinboard-style’ interface not only does it act as a massive online catalogue of all things gaming, but it also allows the user to curate their own collections, discover, engage, play and share them with other users with similar interests.
The games space is huge with mobile gaming revenue valued at a whopping $21.1billion. Even though these numbers are impressive discovering games can still be difficult and the industry is monopolised by game publishers and developers.
The beauty of gamesGRABR is that it’s changing the gaming landscape. Quite literally. Not only can users curate collections, discover, buy, play or download any game with just one click but they can also get great deals and compare prices, as well as detailed information about each game. Users can grab games or videos from the web using their unique bookmarklet button making the process much quicker and easier. And what social network wouldn’t be without the ability to engage with other gamers and get inspiration from people with similar interests? Users can also follow their favourite gamers, YouTube bloggers or game companies.
CEO and industry veteran, Tony Pearce, explained to us his funding strategy:
“Crowdfunding worked so well for us last time, it’s a fantastic opportunity for not just investors but also appeals to a much wider audience, from the gaming community to people who want to be part of an exciting social networking site. We have some really cool and cutting edge plans for the site and are looking forward to developing them in 2015.”
The gaming social network also boasts some highly influential and well-regarded vloggers as partners. They promote their own Featured Collections to their combined subscribers of over a million gamers, which amplifies the reach and brand awareness of gamesGRABR exponentially.
gamesGRABR have clearly come a long way in such a short space of time.
