The Client

GAME is a British video games retailer with over 400 stores.

What We Did

GAME were looking to promote the release of the long anticipated triple-A title – Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.

We know students love a special offer so, recommended GAME include this within their artwork.


They opted to offer students reading The Student Guide 2% back on every purchase and additional in-game downloadable content when pre-ordering.

To make sure students didn’t forget to pre-order and take advantage of the offer, we placed GAME within our wall planner provided in every Guide.

Section sponsorship provided GAME a clickable link to pre-order on every editorial page of The Student Guide. website also featured a feature article on Black Ops 3 and provided a route back to to pre-order.

Serving as a final reminder to students we provided GAME will 100,000 student emails to send the special offer to, check out the artwork below.


Why It Rocked

This helped propel Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 to sales of $550 Million, blasting the previous two releases out of the water.

    Tim Roberts | Marketing Manager - Growth Products | Direct Line Group
    We worked with BA Media on some targeted advertising via their UK Graduate guide for our Backpacker Insurance policy and then later via their UK Student Guide to promote our Travel Insurance and the perils of not having adequate Travel Insurance.  We found BA Media a pleasure to work with; they kept us up to date with deadlines and were extremely efficient.  I would recommend anyone who deals with people in their markets to use them for their advertising.
