Over 30 million people have downloaded the new Pokemon Go game.
You’ve probably seen groups of people moving past your home or office in search of game pieces at “PokeStops”. The game is fairly simple; players walk around an area, the game alerts them when Pokemon are near and players have to try to capture them. “Lures” can be purchased for about $1.19 per hour, bringing Pokemon game pieces to a specific location.
Food establishments, retail stores and convenience stores are increasing business by purchasing “Lures” to bring in new customers. One pizza restaurant in NY saw sales increase by 75% last weekend after the manager spent $10 to have a dozen Pokemon lured to the location.
Even if you don’t sell a product, offering your office as a “charging station” for Pokemon Go players could be another way to attract more eyes on your brand. And if you’re thinking you don’t need an office full of pre-pubescent teens standing around charging their devices on your dime, know that the average Pokemon Go player (according to Forbes) is a 25-year-old, college educated woman making over $50,000 per year.
