While the emergence of new technologies and social media networks has made it easier than ever to find your audience, it has also complicated the process by which nonprofits plan campaigns and strategies. With so much content available, people are turning away from lackluster content and searching for something more. But what are they looking for?

How Transmedia Made LEGO the Most Powerful Brand in the World

How Transmedia Made LEGO the Most Powerful Brand in the World | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

Recently, leading brand valuation and strategy consultancy Brand Finance named LEGO the most powerful brand in the world. This is what they said:


“[LEGO] scores highly on a wide variety of measures on Brand Finance’s Brand Strength Index such as familiarity, loyalty, promotion, staff satisfaction and corporate reputation. LEGO is a uniquely creative and immersive toy; children love the ability to construct their own worlds that it provides. In a tech-saturated world, parents approve of the back-to-basics creativity it encourages and have a lingering nostalgia for the brand long after their own childhoods. The LEGO Movie perfectly captured this cross-generational appeal. It was a critical and commercial success, taking nearly US$500m since its release a year ago. It has helped propel LEGO from a well-loved, strong brand to the World’s most powerful.”...

Lego offers up its own competitor to “Minecraft” | Hayley Tsukayama | WashPost.com | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

Minecraft is getting some new competition from a very familiar company: Lego.

The brick-maker announced Monday that it's releasing "Lego Worlds," an online title that emulates the open "sandbox" feel of Minecraft, the game so beloved that Microsoft bought it for $2.5 billion last year. (It also features blocky graphics similar to Minecraft's, but given that many people have described Minecraft's look as "Lego-like," that seems only logical.)

 

"Lego Worlds" is available to play Monday, by way of the digital distribution platform Steam, albeit in an early testing phase. According to the game's Web site, the company plans to have the game in early access through 2015. Next year, Lego will look at what it's learned and figure out when it should launch a full "Worlds" release.

 

Trying out the game costs $15; prospective customers will need to have a Steam account to purchase the game.
