Make Pokémon GO for Your Practice

Posted by ryanz on August 10, 2016

Pokémon GO has taken the world by storm—it is now the most downloaded mobile gaming app in the United States. While you may be amused at the hordes of people (most between the ages of 12 and 30) who are capturing Bulbasaurs and Wartortles, you should also consider the implications this game could have on your practice.

Here are some ideas to take advantage of the Pokémon craze in your office:

  • Pay for a “Lure Module” to be placed near your practice
    • This is a Pokémon GO app feature that will attract Pokémon to a location
    • This will require making an In-App purchase, for more information on how to do this visit the Pokémon GO help site by clicking here
  • Take pictures of Pokémon and PokeBalls found in your office and use SesameShare to post them to your social media networks
  • Set up Pokémon-related office events, like scavenger hunts or a patient appreciation Pokémon hunt event (have snacks/drinks before or after)
  • Create a “best photo contest” where patients post their Pokémon photos to your page and tag your office
  • Have printable Pokémon content (coloring books, puzzles, etc.) which you can search for on Google

If you have more questions about the Pokémon GO app be sure to visit the Pokémon GO Help site!
